  6. Elon being older looking in 1999 than he does 20+ years later totally makes sense with a weirdo like him

  8. I’m glad he does what he wants with his own money. I also respect him for wanting to give everything away too, we are not our possessions we are our brains and feelings.

    I like how his neighbor just pretends to not see anything as he gets his bike out.

    “This kid will crash and burn, coal and oil is the future and nobody will use online banking” (Analysts 1999).

  18. 1996: the Internet’s a fad.
    2016: access to the Internet’s a human right.
    2036: we can’t actually exist without the Internet/Reality+ 2.0

  19. 22 years later: Richest man alive!
