    On 13 November, Tesla’s CEO said the German capital will host the company’s first major European factory as Tesla moves forward with its expansion plans, now, however, it seems that the tech visionary is more interested in other things, like urban planning for fictional realms.

    Business and engineering maverick Elon Musk has left netizens bewildered following a tweet about the gentrification of Mordor, the fictional realm and home of the villain Sauron in Tolkien’s saga Lord of the Rings. The 48-year-old entrepreneur put up a poll on the social media platform asking users two to choose between a "yes" and "no" option.

    ​Musk frequently entertains his huge army of followers, posting jokes and memes, and sending out teasers for his companies projects. He is also no stranger to posting enigmatic tweets, but this one has really baffled netizens…

    ​Some users willingly backed the idea of gentrifying the mountainous realm thinking that Musk’s idea would be a success.

    ​The opponents of gentrification, which can force low income residents out of a neighbourhood due to increased costs of living, were shocked to the roots of their souls by Musk’s proposition…

    ​Many users found the tech visionary's idea interesting and came up with suggestions on how to improve Mordor.

    ​Still others contended that the gentrification of Mordor would be impossible.

    ​Well, as for the vote itself, at the moment 77 percent back the idea of gentrification of Mordor while 23 percent oppose it.
