Less than six months after he announced plans to release a civilian flamethrower on the commercial market, Elon Musk has actually delivered: At least 1,000 happy campers picked up their very own Boring Company flamethrowers on June 9th at the parking lot of Musk's SpaceX headquarters outside Los Angeles.
Ever since billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk unveiled his slick new commercial flamethrower for the low, low price of $500, Americans have been scrambling to stake their claim to the incendiary gadget. By Feb. 1, Musk’s Boring Company announced it had sold a whopping 20,000 flamethrowers. "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower," Musk joked on Twitter. "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"
Billionaire brainiac Elon Musk has a pretty grim view of the future. If climate change doesn’t destroy human civilization, artificial intelligence will. That’s why he’s on a mission to get people off this planet and up into outer space as fast as possible.
