Elon Musk has reason to be on cloud nine. His rocket firm SpaceX won the green light from the Los Angeles civic authorities to build a research and manufacturing plant for its deep-space Starship project in the city’s port.

According to a report in an Indian TV channel, a Twitter user shared a photograph of Canadian fighter pilot Raymond Collishaw, who was born over a hundred years ago and looked very much like Musk.

It was then that Musk delivered a smart sally: “Full disclosure, I’m actually a 3,000-year-old vampire. It’s such a trial assuming all these false identities over the centuries!” he wrote.
Musk’s claims of being a vampire have not surprised some in the Twitter world, though, who say they knew about it.
