Besides running a car company, a space company, a tunnel company and an AI company, he also managed to sell roughly $600,000 worth of hats, and the demand just keeps on rising.
Musk’s Boring Company sold 30,000 hats adorned with the company logo since they launched in October, Musk tweeted Monday. Just a few weeks ago, Musk said the company has sold $300,000 worth of hats, meaning the sales have roughly doubled since that time.

New York-based photographer Brooke Goldman was dead on her feet when she saw one of the funniest sights of her life. She had just dragged herself out of bed to walk her travel-bound boyfriend to the train station, and was wandering through the city in a sleepy haze.
