    Sorry, not on the musk bandwagon. He's made some smart business decisions and some really stupid ones. He just happened to have the financial backing to hire smart people to make shit for him to take credit for.
    Tesla should be on that list five times before musk. Hell, I'd put gates and jobs above musk.

    Elon Musk is the modern PT Barnum.

    "There's a sucker born every minute"

    "Pay more to get less in a Tesla" should be his marketing slogan.

    Between your fandom of Billy EyeSlut and your top 5're batting a big 0.0 there motion.

    I'm not saying the dude is perfect, but he had a wacky ass dream, and had the stones and resources to go after it. Who the fuck though we could re-use rockets and land them on a dime after launching shit into space?

    In no order:
    Winston Churchill
    Johnny Ramone
    Kenny Roberts
    Margaret Thatcher/ Ronald Reagan (same person for this conversation)
    Santa Claus (if you're gonna include fictional people in your list as if they actually existed like Jesus and Valentino Rossi, I'll chuck out the SC as a counter).

    I don't see NASA (or anyone else) catching and reusing their rockets. I despise Tesla for a number of reasons, but he's exactly the space cowboy we need pushing the real brains to think again.

    Edit: top 5 ever though...he better do a shitload more.
