2021 was a big year for Telsa CEO and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk. That said, it must be exhausting seeing so much combined success and controversy. However, despite it all, the World’s Richest Person says he only sleeps six hours total each night.

Musk’s daily pursuits go beyond Tesla and SpaceX, though the two companies remain at the forefront of the multi-billionaire’s successes. However, CNBC’s Make It detailed that Elon Musk also owns and runs a neurotechnology company called Neuralink. He also serves as founder of The Boring Company, tasked with constructing tunnels.

Therefore, you would think such a preoccupied individual would require a typical, suggested full night’s rest. That being your care provider’s recommended eight hours. Not so, as far as Elon Musk is concerned.

In speaking with Joe Rogan during the latest episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Musk shared, “I work a lot. Normally, I’ll be in meetings at work until 1 or 2 in the morning.”

Despite that, his nightly sleep schedule allows for only six hours. As such, I truly hope he doesn’t experience insomnia.

Regardless, the Tesla CEO said to Rogan, “I tried sleeping less, but then total productivity decreases.”

And we can’t have such an inventive mind lacking in his innovation.

Elon Musk Boasts ‘Bonkers’ Sleep Schedule

Additionally, Elon Musk shared with The Wallstreet Journal he would occasionally sleep on the floor under his desk at Tesla. That’s alongside weeks in which the multi-billionaire claimed he would number upwards of 120 working hours weekly.

“There were times when…I would sort of just sleep for a few hours, work, sleep for a few hours, work, seven days a week,” Musk said.

Overall, the feat seems unreasonable, insane, and downright unhealthy.

Fortunately, we know Musk acknowledged that much stating, “No one should put this many hours into your work. [It’s] not recommended for anyone. You’re gonna go a little bonkers if you work 120 hours a week.”

SpaceX Founder Battles it Out with Cats

Elon Musk has been known to face a multitude of PR and social media issues and controversies, however now, he and his SpaceX Starlink satellites are encountering a whole new kind of battle.

Starlink satellites are multifunctional as they can be used both globally on top of rooftops and buildings, while also remaining ground-dwelling for commercial customers seeking top internet service.

As such, the ground-dwelling satellites have begun making news, contributing to Elon Musk’s innovative reputation, as their warming feature has attracted some pretty adorable patrons.

Cold temperatures and mass amounts of snow have blanketed the country lately, with states from Florida all the way northward seeing some accumulation, cold front, or both.

With it, wild and feral creatures have gone to extremes to seek warmth. Perhaps now you see where Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites come in.

With its “Snow Melt Mode,” the satellites have attracted mass populations of cats and it has the Internet going wild with love.

In response to the humorous pandemic, Starlink users have taken to social media to share their woes.

“Starlink works great until the cats find out that the dish gives off a little heat on cold days,” shared satellite user Aaron Tyler.

Overall, it seems the score remains Frigid Felines: 1 to Elon Musk: 0.
