SAN JOSE, CA - Tesla Motors and Paypal founder Elon Musk unveiled his vision of a futuristic "Catastropult" transportation system today, detailing a coal-powered catapult system that would toss people from Los Angeles to San Francisco in half an hour, or so...

In a press release, Musk, described in detail a system that, if luck has it, would do nothing short of revolutionizing the transportation industry as we know it.

The Catastropult, which Musk previously described as a cross between a sling shot, pitching machine and basketball net, would cost an estimated $637 billion to build and would take 13 to 72 years to build.

In summary, individual passengers would be loaded into pods coated with a super polymer and would be catapulted approximately 300-500 miles, where they would be, hopefully, captured by a carbon-fiber net.

Eventually, it would fling more than 63 people a year from Los Angeles to somewhere near San Francisco.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
