Elon Musk Hosts Flamethrower Party While Tesla Burns

Flame on! Elon Musk says Boring Company delivers its first ‘Not-a-Flamethrowers’

Flame on! Elon Musk says Boring Company delivers its first ‘Not-a-Flamethrowers’

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

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.

That's around 40 times the original $500 (£374) price tag. An instruction manual was for sale for $250 (R6 535).

After Musk sold 20,000 of his company's flamethrowers, it was announced that The Boring Company would be holding special pick up parties for their excited customers, as ABC7 reports.

The firm plans to build a network of tunnels where vehicles are transported on electric skates to their destination, reducing traffic on the surface.

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

Earlier this year, Musk revealed he had hastily re-branded the guns to "Not A Flamethrower" after a number of customs agencies stated they would not ship any packages labelled as "Boring Company Flamethrower" to customers in the mail.

Musk said the device was renamed Not-a-Flamethrower, "due to recent regulatory/customs rules enacted to inhibit transport of anything called a Flamethrower". "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower". "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"

KitGuru Says: At the very least, Musk is allowing himself to run wild with his ideas in the Boring Company and there's no telling what the mad man genius will end up doing next.

Musks' official Twitter account and the account for the Boring Company together tweeted a total of 16 photos from the event, mostly of their customers testing out the new product.

The first promotional products were simple Boring Company hats. The electric sled would allow for cars to be transported at 150 miles per hour through the tunnel, Musk has said.
