In an unexpected move on Monday, Elon Musk took to Twitter and shared a peculiar photograph accompanied by the caption “my bedside table.” The image unveils an assortment of intriguing items.
The snapshot captures a partially consumed bottle of water, an array of caffeine-free Diet Coke cans stacked into a small mountain, and a meticulously crafted replica of George Washington’s flintlock pistol housed within a wooden box. The lid of the box showcases Emanuel Leutze’s renowned painting depicting Washington’s iconic crossing of the Delaware River.
Notably present is what appears to be a replication of the Diamond Back .357 revolver from the popular video game ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution,’ alongside a Buddhist amulet, adding an air of diverse fascination to the composition.
Nestled in the top-right corner are a few books, one of which bears resemblance to Washington’s ‘Rules of Civility and Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation.’ This literary piece could be part of a broader compilation known as the ‘Books of American Wisdom,’ which encompasses the likes of the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and Benjamin Franklin’s ‘The Way of Wealth.’
