Elon Musk awoke today with the intention of sending Twitter into a frenzy by declaring that he received "verbal govt approval" to build a Hyperloop in the densest part of the United States, between New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington D.C.

This is dumb, it's not how things work, and requires, uh, actual government approval. We reached out to the, uh, actual government to see if this is legit.

The more I learn about Elon Musk's Boring Project -- a wild idea to build a tunnel that sends cars at breakneck speeds under Los Angeles -- the more I want to take a ride. The twisted genius just posted video of a test sled zooming through a test tunnel. Holy crap, it's like going into hyperspeed, and I want to ride! And I feel a little sick now, too!

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
