  • Elon Musk speaks at Boring Company community meeting in Bel Air Los Angeles

Musk stunned investors a month back with tweets saying he had funding to take the company private for $420 per share. Then he states that flying cars would never work because they're too loud - after claiming that he will be putting very loud compressed air jets in his future vehicle. His first day, August 6, was two days before CEO Elon Musk's now-infamous tweet about taking Tesla private that has ended in lawsuits and investigations by federal regulators. An episode of Joe Rogan's popular podcast released today seemed to show Musk smoking marijuana-something that's legal under California law but remains illegal under the federal Controlled Substances Act. Musk has said he expects the company could turn profitable in the second half of this year.

Rogan's podcast is known for being choppy and focused on a wide array of topics, but Musk's appearance was particularly wild, as the two went from discussing ancient weaponry to talking about the CEO's new electric plane design.

Along the way, Musk drew a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission, which already had been scrutinizing the public pronouncements he's made regarding manufacturing goals and sales targets.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency told South Mississippi residents to be prepared to evacuate. No one else was inside the home at the time of the accident police said.

When Rogan asked Musk if he had tried cannabis before, Musk stated that he thinks he "tried one once".

"It's like a cup of coffee in reverse", Musk explained.

"A lot of people don't like humanity and think it is a blight, but I don't", Musk said. That said, his experience was probably not a good fit for the electric auto maker's startup culture, which is characterized by its flat organizational structure and its fast pace.

Musk also warned that people shouldn't kick or abuse robots - because they have a long memory.

Rodgers signs record extension with the Packers
Rodgers, who will turn 35 in December, signed a five-year, $110 million extension before the 2013 season kicked off. The initial roster consists of 26 offensive players, 24 defensive players and three specialists.

Musk said his efforts to merge the human brain with machines are making progress. Later Musk says he doesn't notice any effect from the joint, which he claims he rarely smokes. "He jested "'You probably can't do this because of stockholders, right?".
