Oh, that Elon Musk. Always saying the most provocative things, such as yesterday when he addressed attendees at a Nvidia conference and suggested that driverless cars will someday bring about a ban on the human-driven kind.

“It’s too dangerous,” he said. “You can’t have a person driving a two-ton death machine.”

My children’s future children should live so long.
