Handsome, brilliant, visionary, and, last but certainly not least on any list I make, foreign.  The South African Elon Musk is one of my favorite people on the planet.  

To me, Musk is the modern equivalent of Nikola Tesla.  Greatly misunderstood brilliance which, at every turn, is forcing the world to the future.  One major difference between them is the fact that Elon (yes we're on a first-name basis) is incredibly rich so funding his mad scientist ideas isn't much of an issue.  

PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, SolarCity.  The man is talking about dropping nuclear bombs at each pole on Mars to make it livable.  For real!? He's just crazy enough that he might actually do it, too.  And now he's made roofs cheaper and able to produce electricity.  Unbelievably awesome stuff.  For all this and more, Elon Musk is my #ManCrushMonday.
