Elon Musk’s Boring Company is reportedly difficult at work digging its first tube outside of SpaceX HQ in Hawthorne, California â? but the company’s unconventional leader has poetry on the thoughts.
That hasn’t totally sidetracked Musk from dedicating his apparently limitless attention span to the next-gen underground transportation project, though. Their forays into literature have, rather, inspired him so much that your dog is settled on a name for the Dull Company’s second massive tunneling device, and it’s been pulled straight from certainly one of America’s most important poets, Robert Ice.
The new machine’s title, Line-Storm, comes from Frost’s first guide of poems, 1913’s A Kid’s Will. The bucolic setting from the verse is a strange fit as the namesake of a massive piece of commercial equipment, but Musk seems fixated on the line that closes the first plus last stanzas, “And be love my in the rain. ” Sensitive, sincere Elon is back in full force. Â
Musk gave Boring Company’s additional machine a name inspired with a famous work of literature, yet that seemed to be more fitting. The very first digger was named Godot, motivated by the title character (who in no way appears) in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. When that was introduced back in May, Musk hinted that will Frost would probably be used to name an additional of the machines, although he appeared to dismiss the obvious idea of using the poet’s most famous work, “The Road Not really Taken. “
Third a single will be from Frost. Maybe the 2nd.

The Boring Company could be prepping in order to expand its operations now that the 2nd tunneling machine has been christened. Musk showed off a picture of a Tesla within the Hawthorne tunnel back in August, plus told a skeptical follower upon Twitter that the project is advancing rapidly.
There is definitely an actual tunnel and it’s getting lengthier every day

Musk famously tweeted that The Dull Company’s efforts to build tunnels which will jettison cars on rails with speeds of up to 124 mph (possibly using a Hyperloop) had been given “verbal govt approval” to expand to other metropolitan areas, too, but there haven’t already been any updates on that front side. Â
For now, the most concrete public proof of the Boring Industry¡¯s efforts are JJ Abrams-inspired caps Musk is busily hawking upon Twitter. If you buy the merch, you can rep Frost, Godot, Musk, and tunnels, if you’re into incredibly boring headwear. Â
