Elon Musk's Boring Company will personally deliver your flamethrower

SpaceX Elon Musk super fast rocket travel earth mars

What this could very well mean is that The Boring Company and SpaceX might just be teaming up to build a myriad of hyperloop systems in Los Angeles so that commuters would not only be able to avoid traffic, but might also one day be able to hop on one of Musk's BFR rockets and catch a flight to Shanghai, arriving in less than 60 minutes.

What's interesting is that in his tweets, Musk says that the reason for prioritizing passengers (and presumably the reason for the low fare) is "courtesy and fairness", saying: "If someone can't afford a vehicle, they should go first".

In January, it emerged that Musk's plans to dig a tunnel under Los Angeles to beat the city's notorious traffic had come a step closer to reality. "It's the only way we can think of to address the chronic traffic issues in major cities", Musk said at the event addressing a crowd of roughly 750 people.

The City Council approved Boring's request to exempt the tunnel from a lengthy environmental impact review, however, the company's plans have hit a recent snag after a court challenge from two neighbourhood organisations to halt development.

It's all part of The Boring Company's broader effort to develop a system of tunnels that could create the infrastructure needed for alternative mass transit.

The system Musk envisions would see pods carrying vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists on "skate" platforms traveling at speeds of up to 130 miles per hour. If the Boring Company wins all the regulatory go-aheads that are required, Musk's past record of hard-to-imagine achievements may be a big reason why.

Deadpool 2 movie review: Ryan Reynolds brings home another victor
The action sequences can get very gory and gruesome, which adds to the fun and mature (read: R-rated) nature of the movie. It was also originally a rebooted version of the New Mutants team (the New Mutants is getting its own movie next year).

According to the city, the proposed tunnel would begin with the entry/exit point at 2352-6 Sepulveda Boulevard, north of West Pico Boulevard, in West Los Angeles. He added he has every intent of submitting to a full environmental study for the tunnel network as a whole when the time comes. To realize Musk's idea, Boring will need permits and buy-in from city officials and residents, many of whom felt blindsided when the company first made its goals public.

The plan calls for excavated soil to be compacted into concrete reinforcement segments for the tunnels, or turned into construction bricks.

"You won't hear us, you won't feel us, you won't even know we exist", Davis said.

"This is definitely going to happen", she told Anderson, noting that it should be ready in about 10 years in "Gwynne time" ("I'm sure Elon will want us to go faster").

The company assured citizens that if the top soil moves by as little as half an inch (one cm), work will stop immediately.
