Elon Musk Hosts Flamethrower Party While Tesla Burns

This weekend Elon Musk held a pickup party at Boring Company headquarters for his flamethrower, which for legal reasons is officially called "Not-a-Flamethrower".

Musk'sTwitter thread started with a straight announcement, "First 1000 Boring Company Flamethrowers being picked up today!"

Musk provided recipients with a 10-page manual that included safety tips to assuage some of these concerns, such as "Do not point the not-a-flamethrower toward face, people, animals, or flammable objects".

The serial business entrepreneur is behind SpaceX, Tesla, PayPal.

Earlier this year when news of the flamethrowers came out, it resulted in $10 million United States dollars gross revenue in just a few days. Don't worry if you can't make it; all Not-a-Flamethrowers will ship out this summer!

'Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!'

"We found out that anybody can market a flamethrower so long as it's less than 10 feet, no matter how wide the flame is, and there's absolutely no regulation for it". Musk tweeted the terms and conditions for the owners on the style of Dr. Seuss.

"In a ideal world, I don't see any reason why anybody needs something like this out of a legitimate commercial use".

Some customers are already trying to turn a profit on the device. He has advertised the flamethrowers as "guaranteed to liven up any party", drawing a huge reaction online. Numerous listings are priced in the $2,000 to $3,000 range. One seller even has a "Buy Now Price" of $20,000.

Musk initially floated the idea of selling flamethrowers to help fund his infrastructure tunneling company, which many took as a joke. And some see Musk's latest ploy as particularly reckless and insensitive.

In response to @SPPhotonic, Musk may have revealed an upcoming new TBC product when he tweeted, "Each flamethrower comes with a state-of-the-art The Boring Company brand fire extinguisher".
