Elon Musk is building a cyborg dragon, so now you know how the world ends

And I think we can probably agree that a cyborg dragon apocalypse is more provocative than a nuclear apocalypse or a flu apocalypse or a non-biodegradable plastic apocalypse. It’s definitely more original.

SpaceX boss and mad scientist Elon Musk announced on Twitter last night that “oh btw I’m building a cyborg dragon”, adding that it’s “such an underserved market”. Maybe for some very compelling reasons, Musk-O, but I suppose ethics are kind of irrelevant when you’re already in the business of manufacturing household flamethrowers, which as we’ve previously discussed, would be ineffective in a dinobot apocalypse. Which is more or less the same thing as a cyborg dragon apocalypse, and it’s almost like he wants humanity to lose the war.

Or maybe it’s something about the Dragon V2 rocket going to Mars, but that’s (somewhat?) less impressive, unless it’s also a spaceship that can transform into a cyborg dragon. That would be rad too.

Let’s play Space Quest 6: The Spinal Frontier (some more, again)
