Elon Musk's Boring Company Releases Its 'Not-A-Flamethrower'

Flame on! Elon Musk says Boring Company delivers its first ‘Not-a-Flamethrowers’ Elon Musk and the Boring Company Deliver its First 'Not a Flamethrower' Flamethrowers

He's the much-loved tech billionaire who revolutionised motoring with his electric cars and transformed space travel with his rockets.

At the pickup event, customers tested the flamethrowers (which are definitely flamethrowers) by torching marshmallows.

Some of the people who purchased flamethrowers from Elon Musk's Boring Company are now reselling the devices on eBay for thousands of dollars.

Amid an ongoing national debate over gun reform and the Second Amendment, some took issue with the fact that such risky machines were sold for a mere $500 by the Boring Company, which did not require a background check of would-be flamethrower owners.

"Obviously, a flamethrower is a super bad idea".

With so many flamethrowers having been sold by The Boring Company, enthusiastic customers are hoping that Elon Musk will be holding another Not-A-Flamethrower party at a later date. "Nothing makes your baby more zen than a few gentle puffs of a TBC Flamethrower", Musk tweeted.

The Trump-Kim peace summit has been downgraded to a half-day
They are being housed at the Formula One pit building in the city centre, while Trump stays in the Shangri-La and Kim at the St. He said on Thursday that he didn't think he had to prepare very much for the summit and that "it's about attitude".

"Flamethrower obv best way to light your fireplace/BBQ", the multibillionaire businessman wrote on Twitter. This suggestion probably should have a "Kids, do not try this at home" caution, because you know that's what people will do. It will generate way more warmth than a quaint pile of logs'.

Twitter user @SPPhotonic mentioned California fire hazards, "Did Nobody tell you that fire Hazards in California are not a joke?"

Miguel Santiago, an American politician who serves in the California State Assembly, recently proposed legislation to stop sale of the flamethrowers.

With 20,000 flamethrowers now in circulation, expect more flame-throwing displays on social media.

On Saturday, Musk hosted a pick-up party in Los Angeles where dozens gathered to get their hands on the first batch. We will have to wait and see how successful these ventures actually are.
