Elon Musk reportedly wanted to buy ‘justballs.com’ because of course

Just balls, and only the balls. 

Eccentric billionaire and owner of stankmemes.com Elon Musk has plenty of appropriately oddball passions. His love of flamethrowers and snails is well known, for example. However, it was only today that his interest in ball-related web domains was revealed to the world.

That was one of the many takeaways from the latest installment of the ongoing “pedo guy” defamation trial involving the Tesla CEO. According to Ryan Mac, BuzzFeed News’s senior tech reporter, it was reveled today in court that back in 2018 Musk wanted to purchase “justballs.com.” 

Yup. 

Apparently Musk had Jared Birchall, who the Los Angeles Times notes is the manager of Musk’s family office, attempt to purchase the domain under a fake name in 2018. 

“Defense brings up a march 2018 email from Birchall using the Jim Brickhouse name and email when he was trying to buy a web domain for Musk,” reported Mac. “The domain Musk wanted to buy was justballs.com.”

Notably, according to Mac, the deal never went through. 

At the time of this writing, a visit to justballs.com shows a page “under construction” with a notice that something — we’re not sure what — is “Coming Soon!”

Which, yeah, now that the world knows Musk’s alleged fascination with justballs.com, we’re sure it is.
