Surviving an interview with Elon Musk is not for the faint of heart.

The well known co-founder of PayPal and Tesla Motors and the sole founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has a rather peculiar riddle he likes to ask when interviewing a potentially new employee.

According to Mashable, Musk is known to appear disinterested while interviewing candidates. After he has finished asking his questions, he throws out a difficult riddle for potential candidates to answer, as noted in a recent authorized biography.

Here is the riddle Elon Musk asks:

"You're standing on the surface of the Earth. You walk one mile south, one mile west, and one mile north. You end up exactly where you started. Where are you?"
