    So SpaceX-y.

    OK, we'll accept another "Uptown Funk" parody on the basis that this one is the best one. See, I told you Elon Musk was really Iron Man.

  3. 2015 Is the Future: Tesla Cars Are Getting Autopilot in a Software Update in Just Three Months

    The future of the '80s is finally here.

    There was an urban legend when I was growing up about someone who thought "cruise control" was autopilot in their RV, turned it on, and went in the back to make a sandwich. Tesla Motors is set to make that tall tale obsolete in the coming months with a real autopilot mode for its cars to drive themselves down the highway.

  4. SpaceX’s New Rocket Makes The Future Look Rockin’

    More like ShredX AM I RIGHT

    Not only did SpaceX give their future rocket a hardcore name—the "Falcon Heavy"—but they also set this video of it to some serious hard rock. And justifiably so—the video shows a concept that includes a rocket that can safely fly and land itself back on Earth.

  5. For $85 on Airbnb, You Can Be the Junk in Elon Musk’s Trunk

    OK, on a technicality, but still.

    A guy from Phoenix, Arizona noticed his Tesla Model S had enough back to fit an air mattress back there, and after using it as his own portable, environmentally friendly hotel several times, he's opening up the opportunity to everyone on Airbnb. $85 might seem like a steep asking price to sleep in a trunk, but the Model S probably cost him more than some people's homes you could stay in.

  6. Elon Musk Wants to Bring Affordable Space Internet to Everyone—Even Martians

    Is this why he's so worried about Skynet lately?

    SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk has a lot going on lately between trying to get a rocket to land safely on Earth from space and making sure artificial intelligence doesn't enslave/destroy us all, but he hasn't forgotten about us, Internet. His next plan is a global satellite network to make sure everyone can watch cat videos, get yelled at by faceless monsters, and communicate by reaction GIF.

  7. Elon Musk Donates $10 Million to Make Sure A.I. Research Doesn’t Bring About Age of Ultron

    Come with millions if you want to live.

    I'll stop saying Elon Musk is secretly Tony Stark when he stops acting like it, and he's been very concerned about unstoppable AI destroying all of humanity lately. The Tesla Motors and SpaceX founder is so concerned, in fact, that he's now donated $10 million towards research into how to create sophisticated AI without any Skynet-like tendencies.

  8. A.I. Experts Sign Open Letter to Recommend We Don’t Make A.I. a Sociopathic Nightmare

    They're afraid we might do that, Dave.

    Sure, we nearly constantly warn the Internet about the impending threat of our eventual robot overlords, but who wants to listen to a bunch of bloggers making nervous Terminator jokes? Now there's an open letter signed by actual experts in artificial intelligence that urges everyone to make sure that they build their AI to factor "is this good for humans" into its decisions.

  9. SpaceX Crash Landed a Rocket From Space on a Barge, and That’s Pretty Impressive

    If at first you don't succeed...

    Don't be disheartened by all the headlines about SpaceX's Falcon rocket crashing instead of landing on a barge as planned. Instead, be amazed that they successfully crash landed a rocket in a designated area.

  10. Elon Musk Is Afraid We Might Create Ultron, He Is Now Officially Tony Stark

    There are no strings on Musk.

    Now do you believe me that Elon Musk is not-so-secretly Iron Man? The dude is worried about Ultron, for crap's sake! Whoever came up with this viral marketing campaign for Age of Ultron deserves a raise.

  11. On October 9th, Elon Musk and Tesla Motors Want to “Unveil the D”

  12. SpaceX Founder Elon Musk Says We Need 1 Million People on Mars for Humanity’s Sake, and He’s Got a Plan

    "F*** Earth!" -Elon Musk. No, really.

    Real-life-Tony-Stark Elon Musk thinks the only way to save humanity over the long-term is to get 1 million people to Mars. That may sound like a far-fetched goal, but he's already got a plan in the works to make it happen.

  13. Dealers Try to Boot Tesla From Georgia Over Technicality While Tesla Plans Nevada “Gigafactory”

    "What the Hell is a gigafactory!?" -Marty McFly to Elon Musk.

    The Georgia Automobile Dealers Association doesn't like electric car maker Tesla Motors cutting out the middleman and selling directly to consumers. I wonder why that is? So they're crying foul on a rule that limits the number of cars Tesla can sell in a year. Meanwhile, Nevada is laughing all the way to the bank (screw electricity. I want one of these laugh-powered cars that Nevada is getting) as Tesla prepares to build a huge factory there.

  14. Congressmen Make Transparent Attempt to Bog Down SpaceX With Transparency Request

    "You can't take the sky from me!" -Elon Musk, probably.

    We've been pretty excited about SpaceX lately with their Falcon 9 rocket launches and landings, the Dragon V2 crew module, and their new spaceport in Texas, but some members of congress don't share our enthusiasm. Three members of congress in particular are trying to put unnecessary road blocks in front of SpaceX for their own interests. Maybe no one told them that where SpaceX is going, they don't need roads?

  15. The Tesla Motors $35,000 Model 3 Might Just Be the Electric Car You’ve Been Waiting For

    Anyone have $35,000 I can borrow? It's for the environment.

    Electric cars are great and all, but most of them suffer from short ranges and long charging time or a high price tag. Well, Tesla's $35,000 Model 3 is going to change all of that with a car that offers the long travel ranges Tesla is known for without their equally high prices.

  17. How to Watch the SpaceX Falcon 9 Orbital Launch Tonight

    Or maybe "How to watch a launch get delayed."

    Looks like we won't be needing that space trampoline after all, Dmitry Rogozin. SpaceX unveiled their first Dragon spacecraft designed to take a crew of astronauts to the ISS last night, and it's an improvement in every way over current methods of putting humans in orbit.

  20. Russian Official Says NASA Can Go F@&# Itself Use a Trampoline to Send Astronauts to Space

    Well that's not very nice at all.

    Things between Russia and the United States are a little... complicated at the moment due to tensions over the Ukraine/Crimea situation. NASA relies on the Russians to get American astronauts to and from the ISS, but a Russian Deputy Prime Minister has suggested maybe we should be using a trampoline instead. Wait. That won't work, will it?
