People Are Already Wreaking Havoc With Elon’s Flamethrowers — Musk Madness

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

Elon Musk's Boring Company got its $US500 flamethrowers into the hands of consumers for the first time on Saturday.

The clever idea behind these flamethrower pick up parties originally stemmed from the fact that shipping these devices proved to be quite hard given the fact that they contained propane. The flamethrowers are capable of emitting flames up to two feet, while the folks who picked them up tested out their new device by roasting marshmallows.

Alarmed, Santiago decided that he would try to introduce a bill to slow down the sale of The Boring Company's flamethrowers.

Musk initially floated the idea of selling flamethrowers to help fund his infrastructure tunneling company, which many took as a joke. The company took orders for 20,000 flamethrowers, selling out. "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower. For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham". "I will not use this in a house".

Musk's terms and conditions recommended using them for crème brûlée - these people obliged.

'A changed era': How North Korea is reporting the summit
Rodman appeared in Trump's Celebrity Apprentice reality TV show, only to be booted off because he misspelled Melania Trump's name. Trump's one-on-one meeting with Kim kicks off the first ever summit between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

Some customers are already trying to turn a profit on the device. Numerous listings are priced in the $2,000 to $3,000 range.

So far, the listings on eBay do not appear to be drawing much action.

For reasons that may seem obvious, especially if you have seen pictures of exuberant customers wielding their flamethrower, Musk has been criticized for hawking a device that poses a safety risk.

Crowds of ecstatic customers are busy picking up flamethrowers in Los Angeles as Elon Musk distributes the first thousand flamethrowers today that were ordered through The Boring Company.

Musk replied to him: "We don't think our product will be the cause of any wildfires, but The Boring Company is donating $10k".
