Another fun story Elon once told about this McLaren (that I might be misremembering slightly, so don't quote me): several weeks after this delivery he crashed it, walked away from the wreck, suddenly thought to himself "my god, I can just buy another one right now with no problem, holy shit I really AM unbelievably rich", and started laughing.

And a reminder that this was _before_ X.com became the enormously profitable Paypal, let alone all the money he's made from Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, etc. etc.

Love how he tries to make out he was poor, "I used to sleep on the office floor" Well you could have slept in your Dad's multi-million dollar house, most young people cannot follow their passions because they are to busy earning money to survive, if you got a parent bankrolling you, then yeah follow your f*cking dreams.
