Electric car maverick and Tesla boss Elon Musk is in the news again, and this time it is not about his tweet about Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.
Heartwarming video of parents performing 'magic' with water to make their little kid laugh goes viral
His mum, Maye Musk took to Twitter on Wednesday, March 3 to reveal Elon Musk's computer aptitude test result when he was 17 that confirmed he was a special child who was destined for greatness.
Maye, with over 49 years modelling experience, recalled that when young Elon took the test, his score was unbelievably high that he was made to retake the test. She described his score as one they (his teachers) had never seen before.
The dietitian said little wonder he is such a brilliant engineer.
The tweet on her verified Twitter page reads:
"@elonmusk I found your computer aptitude test from when you were 17. If I remember correctly, they had to retest you because they had never seen such a high score. No wonder you are such a brilliant engineer. #ProudMom"
Her post which has been liked by over 150k persons generated mixed comments with many praising her for raising such a wonderful son.
"This coming off a little cringey to anyone else? Parents being publicly congratulatory of their kids always looks like a self-brag. Don't get me wrong; I'm not accomplished nor do I have living parents to hype me, so my take might be different. Cheers."
"Your son is arguably the best human being to ever grace this planet and we’re all witnesses, can’t imagine how crazy that feels. The world and its future is in a better place because of Elon and everyone has his back. Good job for being a good mom."
"Ma'am from what i read, you have raised wonderful children. Thank you for being a great mom. It all started with you. Take care and God bless."
