Elon Musk gets Hyperloop digging permit in Washington, DC

Last year, the internet needled Elon Musk for tweeting he had verbal approval to dig a Hyperloop tunnel in Washington, DC, because officials said they granted no such thing. Now, however, The Boring Company does have an honest-to-gosh written permit, albeit only for some preliminary site preparation and excavation, the Washington Post reports.

I bet as they proceed that idea of keeping the tunnel in a partial vacuum will be replaced with a pneumatic loops to control drag while keeping the average pressure at a level people can breath.

Other than that partial vacuum nuttiness which I think will resolve itself as the project moves foward, I can see no reason to hold Elon Musk back.

He also wants to dig a tunnel under L.A. to take traffic off the 405 freeway. This is in a city which can't find the money to collect apartment building trash without screwing it up.

I wonder what ideas he has for New York? This should be... uh... interesting.

I admit he has a decent sense of wry humor. Calling it the Boring Company is a nice touch.

"We're not exciting! We just drill!"

I believe the Boring Company is the actual company that makes the Musk temperature alteration device, errrr, flamethrower.
