Nice school but
Syracuse is school of visual and performing arts.
And Elon didn't graduate college... What's your point?

Many of the most successful and wealthy people in the world have ZERO formal higher education.

Ya
A lot of people say that. This is the trick

Job Experience
When a guy without an education in a job he is doing. The Guy sees something new or new to him the guy has to read a book on it to figure out
College Experience
Studied and tested on friggen everything new and old stuff and knows things without having to educate himself on everything. He knows he has been educated. He may not have to read a book to understand something.

College Education is not worth much. College is only worth a little but that little is Big.
I think you are giving post secondary education more worth than it really deserves these days.

Education is great but real world experience is another (better imo) form of education.
Both are good. I don't want heart surgery from someone who didn't go to medschool. I also don't want someone who's never done surgery before.

Again, swear it'll be the size of a long bed tacoma.

I have one. With a few inches to spare it's garage fitting. Bed is 6' long.

If they do the midgate, they'll still "have a 6.5' bed"
. The unit behind him is a longer than a supercrew F150 with a 5.5’ bed and as wide as a raptor. There is absolutely zero chance its going to be in any way comparable to a midsize truck

Nice school but
Syracuse is school of visual and performing arts.

Musk is:
Engineering 101 or Engineering 201
but
Engineering 101 is hot stuff and is a good college education
A college degree is one way of learning and demonstrating you understand a thing.

It is not the only way to learn or the only way to demonstrate you understand a thing.

As a non-college graduate, Musk implicitly understands this.

Rad, rare interview with the man himself!

- [Production Cybertruck] Maybe slightly smaller, a few percentages. But looks just like the one behind me (the OG)
- Favorite design is the one coming that we (customers) don't know about yet. Cybertruck is very special and has a huge potential
- They've spent a lot of time proving out the insane design of Cybertruck, exoskeleton specifically touched on.


That was totally worth my time. The dude is pretty damn smart, too. He's got to be pinching himself on the regs.

He's either talking about the so called "cheap" Tesla, or the van. But the low cost Tesla could end up being the one that defines his career.
This is what is great and I mean great about Tesla. They are not necessarily thinking the way we think they think. They could be making almost ANYTHING. Lucky for me they are using their imagination instead of mine.

What would people want to have that would be very useful, eco friendly, sustainable and be actually useful. Yes I said useful twice. What can we make that the world desperately needs.

Tesla pushes boundaries and teams don't stop working. I think battery science team has new tech in the works that increases energy density per weight. This makes electric flight more attractive. My guess is a flying machine.
Quotes to support my thesis:
Cars right now have 4 wheels.
CT is radical in a normal space. Implies the exciting vehicle is not in a normal space.

Yes, that is thinking outside of the box.

Fun fact, my Tacoma long bed is longer than a Chevrolet Avalanche. I don’t know why you think it’s so impossible, but he just said from his own mount, a few percentage smaller.

5% smaller than 231 is slightly smaller than the size of my Tacoma. Potentially smaller even.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
