Please Don't Spend $500 on One of Elon Musk's Flamethrowers

Musk also mentioned that after the flamethrowers, their next product is going to be the Boring Company Freezegun.

He says a flamethrower is a "super bad idea".

Musk first announced plans to launch a flamethrower in December when his latest startup, The Boring Company, started selling branded baseball caps.

This time, Musk is pre-selling either the coolest non-military flamethrower you ever saw or a neatly crafted prank. He joked on Twitter that the weapons would help in a zombie apocalypse but that he's not secretly raising an undead army to generate demand. " It costs $500 to pre-order (what did you think?) and it will come with "fees that may apply for global orders because of laws".

Before everyone panics about the dangers of Elon Musk's flamethrowers, however, it is pertinent to note that The Boring Company flamethrower is not really a full-fledged flamethrower. Musk started selling hats for The Boring Company for a laugh - pretending that would pay to run it. The device will actually set you back $500 rather than $600, and you can throw in a fire extinguisher for an extra $30.

Jose Mourinho pens new contract to stay at Manchester United
We have set very high standards - winning three trophies in one season - but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for. He expressed his desire to play in the Champions League but Arsenal stood firm and kept hold of him until this week.

Anyone who has bought one won't have long to wait, they're shipping in the spring. City officials there have met with Musk's team and say they're open to "exploring options that improve mobility for residents and visitors to the nation's capital", according to a spokesman for Washington's Department of Transportation.

For those insane enough to buy one of these there are only 20 000 'throwers available so you best get your order in quickly.

This flamethrower fire sale (sorry) comes after the firm sold out its allotment of 20,000 hats.

All jokes aside, the flamethrower is part of a tongue-in-cheek promise he made, stating he could sell 50,000 hats to raise awareness for The Boring Company.

The flamethrower will be shipped internationally, but delivery costs and taxes are not included in the price, the company said.
