Have You Seen This? 97-year-old grandpa awed by electric car
The joy on this man's face as he rides in a Tesla makes everything in the world seem OK. - photo by John Clyde

THE FUTURE It is amazing what technological advancements we have seen in our lives. The iPhone, the internet, Hot Pockets. The list is endless.

But when I marvel at the amazing things I've seen in my 30-plus years of life, I cannot imagine how people in their 80s and 90s feel. The future is now and that is proved in this video.

Canadian real estate broker Zev Gitalis decided to show off his Tesla to his 97-year-old grandfather, and it's one of the best videos I've seen in a very long time.

Gitalis' grandfather can hardly comprehend what his grandson is telling him. I mean the battery is on the bottom and there is no engine? How is this possible? I'm still trying to figure it out, to be honest. Then the nearly 100-year-old man's confusion and awe just enhance when he steps into the futuristic automobile and experiences its tech and power.

Just watch the video and enjoy. Not only do I love this man's reaction to real innovation that seems more sci-fi than reality, but I am just as impressed as he is. I need to ride in one of these now. If any of you Tesla owners out there want to give a humble writer a ride around the block in your space car let me know, I'll make time.
