Elon Musk Now Selling Flamethrowers

Elon Musk Now Selling Flamethrowers”

What's next for Boring Company, after the flamethrowers sell out?

"Don't do this. Also, I want to be clear that a flamethrower is a super bad idea".

To go alongside your new flamethrower, Musk is selling an "overpriced" fire extinguisher - good idea - for $30 (£21), the item has the description: "Buy an overpriced Boring Company fire extinguisher!"

Kendrick Lamar beats Jay-Z in early Grammy Awards race
Dave Chappelle , who was part of Lamar's opening performance , won best comedy album during the televised show. Other major contenders include Mars, with " 24K Magic ", his latest return to fun-loving, old-school funk.

Elon Musk did announce on Twitter, back in December, that if 50,000 Boring Company hats are sold, he would bring out a flamethrower as their next product. Musk said on Sunday that 2,000 of the devices had already been ordered.

"When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower", tweeted Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla.

Asked whether the Boring Company's new device was authentic or, in fact, some sort of early April Fools' Day joke, a company spokesman insisted that the device was no joke, according to the San Jose Mercury News. TechCrunch notes the $500 price tag doesn't include shipping fees and taxes, and the site notes "aspiring flamethrower aficionados" have to sign a "terms and conditions" contract. Elon Musk's Boring Company has so far been more of a "lifestyle" brand (and a weird one at that) than a company that, you know, digs massive tunnels through the earth as a going concern.

Former Wildcat Trevor Hoffman Nominated to MLB Hall of Fame
Mariners designated hitter Edgar Martinez fell 20 votes shy with 70.4 percent, while pitcher Mike Mussina climbed to 63.5 percent. Chipper Jones and Jim Thome got in on their first try, while Vladimir Guerrero (second) and Trevor Hoffman (third) also got in.

The flamethrower is being shipped not just within the U.S. but outside as well! Of course, actually finding somewhere to buy one has been a challenge for consumers. until now. It's an actual flamethrower for civilian use and sale.

From The Boring Co. - which began after Musk's Twitter rant about Los Angeles vehicle traffic - selling 50,000 company hats, Musk has built a reputation for spouting tomfoolery and then following through on it. We assume this does not include the aforementioned additional taxes and extra global fees. And, apparently, selling flamethrowers, since he put a limited edition flamethrower up for $500 a pop, limited to 20,000 units. However, to embrace the fire power that could be quite useful in case of a zombie apocalypse they will have to wait until spring.
