Elon Musk Isn't Blowing Smoke up Your Skirt

Elon Musk, perhaps the greatest engineering innovator of our time, is getting his wrist slapped by sanctimonious "investors", who took Tesla stock down 10% overnight.

Why did this happen?

It's not because he reimagined online payments in creating PayPal...

it's not because he reimagined automobiles and fueling in creating Tesla...

it's not because he acknowledged the vastness of free energy available from the sun in creating Solar City...

it's not because he reimagined high speed transportation with Hyperloop...

It's not because he reimagined space travel (reusable rockets!) with SpaceX...

Nope... our hero did a perfectly legal thing that all adults are allowed to do in the State of California. He hit a joint.

Chris Taylor said it so well on Mashable: "Last night, a man took a relaxing hit off a joint. Or, to put it another way for readers in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and the District of Columbia: It was Thursday."

I watched a bit of the interview, and as always, I shake my head at the man's genius.

But "investors", well they got their panties in a twist over the naughtiness of it all.

Thank you "Investors", you just gave everyone a 10% discount on brilliance.
