Not the type to challenge Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg to his doorbell for a game of Ultimate Fighting, as Elon Musk was willing to do before the idea of this fight of the century in Silicon Valley evaporates in the fog of San Francisco.

He is also said to be reluctant to come into conflict with his executives.

Today it’s different: he has obviously become the pride of his region. Proof that parents are right to tell their children to read and do their homework instead of hanging out!
