I Had A Dream - About The Cyber Truck - Dan Stafford

"In my dream, the cybertruck was bigger on the inside than on the outside, like a TARDIS.

There was a living room, a couple of bedrooms, a bathroom, a basement, a bar, a utility closet, and a driver's compartment for four.

Elon Musk was driving, and he took us through mud pits and through a small town.

On the other side of town was a mountain, and it had a truck trail with a 70-degree slope.

We took the truck to the peak, and I watched the whole world around the mountain as an earthquake shook everything, including the mountain.

I woke up as the cyberhouse was crawlinging back down to Earth.
