I think the Elon Boring Company and Envisioning Amazing Habitats threads deserve a place in the Miscellaneous Threads section. They are both quite iconic in this forum and even though some argue that they are somewhat out-of-place in here (they would be in other subforums as well) this is where they found a home.

I would like to cross-post to the Section Realignment sticky in SpaceX General. The Starship section is getting quite crowded and frustration mounting.
