Elon Musk’s flamethrowers hit eBay with sky-high resale prices

12 June 2018

Musk, who is known for provocative antics, first mentioned plans to sell a flamethrower in December, and repeatedly plugged the idea on social media.

Elon Musk's tunnel startup The Boring Company began distributing its first 1,000 personal flamethrowers to buyers over the weekend in Southern California.

While it may seem like just fun and games to some, people are already burning things down that should probably be avoided, and using the for-sure flamethrowers in ways that violate the terms of their purchase.

The best use is crème brulee...

Billionaire space exploration hobbyist and business magnate Elon Musk held the hottest party in Los Angeles over the weekend.

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.

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

Ahead of the original launch of the gun, he said: 'When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower.

The devices - priced at $500 - generated $10 million in sales for the company during its pre-sales earlier this year. "Will offer a TBC ice blaster before the dry season starts in winter".

The Boring Company sold the devices to help raise money to fund testing and development of its tunneling machines.

The disclaimer also mandated that consumers check off several boxes under the prompt, "I understand The Boring Company isn't responsible for anything I do, no matter how genius or stupid".
