Elon Musk's Boring Company shows off Vegas tunnel again, and it looks lame

Looks polished, but the concept feels underwhelming at best.
When Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk first issued his idea for tunnels burrowing underneath traffic, it sounded really amazing. The Boring Company would create a grand high-speed system to bypass ground-level congestion.
