"I love going to the grocery store," writes commenter @noneofyourbusinesssssss0.
"Considering how long it takes to produce a cyber truck, I expect these after I'm dead, LOL!" says @justinmichaelj.
"Wish I was born in the '50s and lived a simple life," remarks @mynijjaa.
User @airpod407 has a prediction: "Battery life one hour at best," he proclaims.
Yeah, I think 2033 or even 2043 is more realistic for human-like robots walking around," suggests @jmaddalena. "2023 is literally months from now."
"I want one," announces @antisocialmeeee. "Who’s got 20k hanging around that they can lend me?"
"Anyone ever notice Elon's projects have military applications?" asks @dexmould.
"All good until someone hacks it and removes strength and speed restrictions," guesses @the..mohan.
