Elon Musk, hours after his new company started drilling a tunnel under Los Angeles, began to wax philosophical about floors.

“I love floors. They will never let you down,” the Tesla and SpaceX CEO quipped in consecutive postings Wednesday evening. The tweets followed news that Musk’s new venture, The Boring Company, officially began drilling a tunnel under Los Angeles.

Musk launched his tunnel company in April. His ultimate goal is to relieve congestion by building as many as 30 layers of tunnels beneath Interstate 105 in LA. Musk has said that the tunnels will transport cars on an electric skate and could even accommodate a Hyperloop, Business Insider’s Danielle Muoio previously reported.

Musk’s musings on social media were characteristically cheeky for the transportation visionary, who seamlessly transitioned from lauding floors to go a little deeper on the subject:

“They are so underappreciated,” he said. “Not as much as tunnels though. Just try one. It’s way better than you think.”
