For the low-low price of $500, you can terrorise your enemies and wow your friends.
Musk first floated the idea for The Boring Company on Twitter in December previous year, telling his followers he had sold out of branded hats and meant to sell flamethrowers next. However, the password to the shop page has been changed since then.
The California Health and Safety Codes 12750 to 12761 ban owning or selling a flamethrower without a permit granted by a state fire marshal. At this point, the critics thought the flamethrower could come out as a special edition collection. The webpage also offers a $30 fire extinguisher for sale, though Musk has not made any indication of the number of those sold.
Trump's tariffs are an altogether bad idea
Because the U.S. now imports most of its panels, the import tax will probably hurt more American companies than it will help. It is understandable that Trump and presidents before him want more manufacturing done right here in the United States.
The flamethrower is believed to be inspired from the movie Spaceballs. Yesterday, Elon Musk showed off a limited-release flamethrower that only costs $500 to purchase.
Musk's warnings have fallen on deaf ears, with 4,000 Boring Company flamethrowers having already been pre-ordered - roughly worth $2.5 million. He didn't mention any specific detail about the Freezegun though.
Uses aren't entirely clear (although we used to have one for clearing weeds which was pretty awesome), but Musk has already denied that he is planning to create a zombie apocalypse exclusively so he can generate a demand for flamethrowers.
This may be one of the most ridiculous ways to raise money for a business that needs more cash but it is undoubtedly effective.
Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe stepping down
But Sanders said Trump stood by his criticism of McCabe and the White House had "some concerns" over McCabe's work at the bureau. The White House was not involved in McCabe's decision, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon.
Musk's startup - The Boring Company - warns that the £355 price tag excludes taxes and shipping costs, and that customers need to apply for global sales. It is capable of shooting flames over short distances only.
But some on social media are speculating this is a mere April Fool's joke, considering the flamethrower is expected to ship in spring.
Based on the videos of the device, it seems like the Boring Co. flamethrower is simply a propane torch fitted on what seems to be a modified CSI S.T.A.R. XR-5 Airsoft Rifle.
