Elon Musk: The Silicon Valley date you definitely can't handleSo you want to date a tech billionaire? Better bring your fire blanket and snail food.
Elon Musk is dating Grimes the lofi electronica witch house dream pop synth queen that leaves baby boomers asking what the [BLEEP] even is music now. But wait a minute, is Elon Musk really dating material. [NOISE] There's not doubt that Musk makes literally moon money. He's the CEO of Spacex, Tesla and Boring company, and before that he sold his share in PayPal for millions. Millions of dollars, but he's also kind of a handful. Do you really want your next Tinder date spending his weekends shooting his cars into space and drawing up plans on how to nuke Mars? And when he's not thinking about space, he's digging tunnels under LA with his pet snail and using the spare dirt to sell bricks. Or, he's selling flamethrowers. And building cyborg dragons. Seriously. You thought your last boyfriend was a handful because he spent his time building terrariums for his pet iguana. And now Elon Musk wants to start a candy company, which will turn out fine. I mean, the only thing stopping Willy Wonka from being a totally normal person is $20 billion, an unending supply of flamethrowers, and a crippling fear of AI. So you swipe right and you match with Musk. Next minuet you're babysitting his pet snail while he's out approving dragon blueprints, selling flame retardant candy, and digging tunnels under your house. Yeah, maybe you should have gone speed dating with Karen from spin class instead. I'm Claire Riley for Cnet, and you know what, I probably go there.
