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 easier to imagine guns being banned, and in this country, that is unimaginable.

Musk did add this caveat:

 “It’s not going to all transition immediately. It’ll take quite a while.”
