    I am a huge Fan of Elon Musk.

    And he loved . Richards Book. :) .

    Link: https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimcla...er-richard-garriotts-new-memoir/#35dd047e54ec
    ( I know it is old link... so what.. who gives a **** about time and matter. :) )

    And to be honest - when i watched Elon Musk Videos of him talking about his views i noticed that Richard did come to my mind.
    Space, Virtual Reality, Dreaming, Exploration.

    I think both in total different Areas but then not. I mean Richard dreaming of a better Transport System in his Town. Elon Musk Cars.
    Do not look at success - but the way they dream...


    I do not care about the Game at all in this Thread. But i regard Richard still as one of the more interesting persons to look at of Human Beings wandering this World.


    I would love to see a Talk Show with Elon, Richard, Nicola Tesla and Jules Verne talking about the future, universe, human live and the Dreams they have.
    And Gene Roddenberry as Moderator of the Show. :)

    Take care all.

    Ha, what a great thought experiment!
    I would want to add in a scientist to keep grounding their dreamy thoughts though. Einstein comes to mind first as not only a practical scientist but also a great, imaginative thinker. Sagan or Tyson would do nicely as well.

    Excelsior!

    I would add Isaac Asimov. He is a scientist and a SciFi author.

    Should have an Elon Musk NPC in game. He can own an airship, some kind of mining tunnel digger, etc.

    It would be called "THE DUNG COMPANY" and would make dungeons accessed via an outhouse.

    I've always thought Elon Musk has all the hallmarks of a major Bond film villain - wealthy high tech industrialist, owns a space program.... ;)

    I would say Jeff Bezos qualifies more for this, the guy even looks like Dr Evil.

    Im actually really considering buying the new Tesla 3 dual motor performance model. Thing does 0-60 in 3.5 seconds which is just .1 slower then a Mclaren F1. I was just reading it broke the record for a armature driver on Leguna Seca.

    Musk is a true genius.

    I'll be very tempted to go down the model 3 route for my next car when the contract for my current one ends in 18 months or so - depends on how the charging network expands in the UK in that time :)
