Tesla CEO Elon Musk Is Now Selling Flamethrowers Alex Harrington January 29, 2018 News After selling out of hats, The Boring Company has now put flamethrowers up for sale on their website. The Boring Company was founded by Elon Musk in 2016 as a business which would dig tunnels for a fraction of what this would usually cost. These tunnels, according to The Boring Company’s FAQ, would be used for his Hyperloop train and underground road networks. Lately however, they’ve expanded into the market of… flamethrowers. You read that right – flamethrowers. They are being sold for $500 (more for international shipping) and are claimed to be the safest flamethrower ever. They’re also ridiculously fun as Elon shows on his Instagram: Don’t do this. Also, I want to be clear that a flamethrower is a super terrible idea. Definitely don’t buy one. Unless you like fun.

You’d need millions of zombies for a so-called “apocalypse” anyway. Where would I even get a factory big enough to make so many!? — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2018 Oh – if you’re worrying about fire safety, you can also buy a fire extinguisher for $30.
