Potential Madman Elon Musk Has Already Sold Out of Flamethrowers

And apparently they’re not even real flamethrowers.

The Boring Company, which was started by eccentric billionaire and guy-who-might-be-an-evil-genius-we’re-just-not-sure-yet Elon Musk with the intention of tunneling giant underground high-speed transport networks, has pre-sold 20,000 of the ostensibly dangerous toys via their website.


While the flames look more like jumped up tiki-torches, this is still a sci-fi looking bit of kit that’ll force fire from its nozzle, technically, bu definition, making it a flamethrower.

Oh, and to skirt pesky customs laws, it’s official title is “Not A Flamethrower”. Listed at the bottom of the site is a brief list of other random information relating to the somehow very legal sale of said flameth-not flamethrowers:

-Fire extinguisher sold separately (for exorbitant amounts of money)
-Taxes and shipping will be added at checkout
-Additional customs fees may apply for international orders because of laws
-International customers can receive a full refund if not happy with said fees
-Before shipping, aspiring flamethrower aficionados will be sent a terms and conditions rhyme for review and acceptance
-Starts shipping in spring
-May not be used on Boring Company decorative lacquered hay bales or Boring Company dockside munitions warehouses

At US$500 a pop, the company has just grossed a cool $10 million for the project, which plans to start shipping the dangerous devices in the coming months.
