Weed, Whiskey, Boring Company, AI and Flamethrowers Elon Musk meets Joe Rogan
Musk and Rogan sipped whiskey throughout their conversation. And at one point, the comedian lit up a joint, and Musk took a puff.
“I’m not a regular smoker of weed,” Musk said. “I don’t actually notice any effect … I don’t find that it is very good for productivity.”
He told Rogan that ideas are bouncing around inside his head all the time — “it’s like a never-ending explosion” — and that he realized he was different from other people when he was just 5 or 6 years old.
“I thought I was insane,” Musk said. As a kid, he added, he worried that authority figures might notice his “strangeness” and put him away somewhere.
There was so much other interesting stuff as well. For example, Musk appreciatively handled a samurai sword in the studio that Rogan said was 500 years old.
