Elon Musk and the Boring Company Deliver its First 'Not a Flamethrower' Flamethrowers

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

On that basis, who's to say the next-generation Tesla Roadster won't have a SpaceX option package with 10 rocket thrusters, as Musk claimed Saturday?

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. Even Musk has suggested doing things with them that violate the agreement.

"In a flawless world, I don't see any reason why anybody needs something like this out of a legitimate commercial use".

In a Doctor Seuss-style poem, the company made buyers of Not a Flamethrower promise not to 'point it at their spouse.' It also has customers agreeing to "not use this in a house", although Musk himself tweeted that it's obviously the "best way to light your fireplace". "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower".


Strictly speaking, Musk's creation is not actually a flamethrower because it only shoots fire for a short distance.

While others used the device to toast the top of creme brûlée... (Late Monday morning, the cheapest one was priced at $2,250.) A listing for just the instruction manual was asking for $250. Numerous listings are priced in the $2,000 to $3,000 range. This suggestion probably should have a "Kids, do not try this at home" caution, because you know that's what people will do.

In response to @SPPhotonic, Musk may have revealed an upcoming new TBC product when he tweeted, "Each flamethrower comes with a state-of-the-art The Boring Company brand fire extinguisher". And some see Musk's latest ploy as particularly reckless and insensitive.

At the pickup event, customers tested the flamethrowers (which are definitely flamethrowers) by torching marshmallows. Plus, The Boring Company said it is going to donate $10,000 to California Wildfire Relief Fund.
