After graduation, both of them walked off to different destinations to pursue their dream. Elon moved to Silicon Valley for building his first dot-com company, Zip2.

Elon calls Thailand Driver a “child rapist”?
Many of you might remember the controversies raised when Elon clashed out a baseless attack against a British diver, pointing him as a child rapist without any strong proof.
The man saved the kids from a cave in Thailand. Not only this, he commented diver Vernon a pedo in a tweet who was engaged as a part of an international team that let free almost 12 young footballers along with their coach from the Tham Luang cave complex.
However, Elon later apologized to Unsworth for the action. Moreover, BuzzFeed had published new emails from Elon where the man referred to the journalist as a f*cking asshole for writing about the dispute.
Nevertheless, Elon launched an extraordinary claim against Unsworth without the presence of any documentation that would support the allegations.
His dad can do email while he is with him and his siblings
During an interview, Elon revealed not seeing his kids enough. According to him, he can be with his kids and still be on email because they don’t need constant interaction except when they are talking directly so that he can be with them and at the same time he can work.
He also confessed to doing email while he is with his children, and that is the reason he tends to have a phone so that he can email in interstitial moments.
In the absence of his phone, he would not be able to get his job done. He also added having a nanny along with them so that they would not kill each other.
His dad never wrote CEO while filling out the occupation form. He always wrote Engineer and wore jeans and a t-shirt to work
His mom Justine Musk while describing her relationship with her then-husband Elon Musk on TEDx Talks, recalled her years with him, where she said she became familiar with a distinct and deeply tribal mentality known as engineers.
Once when she took her dad to visit Elon at his first company at Zip2, seeing the lanty dudes in jeans and t-shirts racing the remote-controlled contraptions around the parking lot and banging them into cars, her dad asked her if they were the kids of the engineers to which she said they were the engineers.
She added to say that whenever she and Elon would travel and they had to fill out the forms of customs that required their occupation, Elon never wrote: “CEO” or “King of the World” or studly international playboy.
He wrote “Engineer” and always wore jeans and a t-shirt to work.
Whenever they went shopping for clothes, he consulted with the stylist that he can’t look cool because he has to look like an engineer.
According to her, one of the things he told her back then was that engineers could not quite figure out why it was that the suits made the big money when it was the engineers who built the stuff that they were selling, and that was the time when she realized that Elon was somebody who has learned to speak both languages and could move between the tribes because he was the engineer in the suit.
