INTERNET – Fans and investors mourn the loss of billionaire maverick Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Paypal, SpaceX, and Twitter.
News of Musk’s death was delayed for several minutes as the electrical accident tripped breakers at Twitter’s silicon valley datacenter.
Twitter’s lead software engineer George Hotz witnessed the gruesome death, “Elon was trying to fix a faulty power supply by shorting out a dead relay with his car keys. It’s ironic because that’s just the kind of disruptive and dangerous trick that made him a billionaire to begin with.”
Ex-wife Grimes remembered all the times Musk toyed with electricity, “He liked to watch electroboom on Youtube and replicate the stunts. Whenever I wasn’t paying him enough attention, he’d jam a paperclip in a socket and short out the whole house.”
Musk’s lifelong obsession with electricity led up to his creation of Tesla, which pioneered the manufacture and sales of electrical vehicles of all kinds.
In the billionaire’s last moments, surveillance cameras at the data center captured Musk leaning into an equipment rack and smiling like a child, “This is hardcore right here. You see this? This is where my billions came from. Sometimes you’ve just got to get in there and work, work, work.” Musk’s mood was so elevated with designer synthetics, coroners believe he may have not noticed the powerful electrical current until after his internal organs were completely cooked.
