If you don't know "The Oatmeal" you should check him out. He's my favourite cartoonist, and I dig his sense of humor.

For starters, look at what he has to say about his Tesla Model S

Did Elon Musk just agree to donate $8 million because a cartoon asked him to?

If you read the cartoon posted above, and then went on to page 2 (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla_model_s2), you will see that The Oatmeal asked Elon Musk to donate $8 Million(!) to help fund a Tesla Museum (as a thanks for using the Tesla name for his company).

Elons Response? "I'm Happy to Help"

No one has said that he will actually contribute the $8M, but Elon Musk getting involved in a Nicola Tesla Museum is a good day for science and EV's!

It will be interesting to see how this shakes out.

Yeah, I doubt he'd donate the full amount but even if he put up the first $2M that'd make it a lot easier to get more people on board.

I also expect that with that sort of interest in it, he'd be involved in at least some aspect of the project management of the whole thing, which is definitely great news!
