Tesla CEO Elon Musk got sick of traffic and tweeted about building a giant tunnel-boring machine to dig tunnels. His thought about having underground tunnels to avoid traffic is brilliant enough, but is it possible? Well, at least Elon said he is not joking about it.

Really, who hasn’t thought of digging giant tunnels to drive around when stuck in traffic? While for all of us it is just a wish, Musk added “tunnels” to his Twitter bio.

The story started out just like any other annoyed traffic rage on Saturday: with Elon tweeting about the obvious corrections to the system that we’ve all dreamed (and probably tweeted) about making.

To make decisions while you’re all furious isn’t always a good idea.

Building a giant mole machine to dig tunnels is no exception to that. In case you still think he was joking, he wasn’t.

He is going to dig traffic tunnels, so you and all of the other furious people stuck in traffic don’t have to.
