Elon Musk's company sells thousands of flamethrowers

To purchase The Boring Company's $500 "Not-a-Flamethrower", all 20,000 buyers were required to sign off on Green Eggs and Ham-inspired conditions.

That's around 40 times the original $500 (£374) price tag. (Late Monday morning, the cheapest one was priced at $2,250.) A listing for just the instruction manual was asking for $250. Well, the most logical guess would be that Musk's Boring Company raising $1 million from sold hats and a further $10 million from Not a Flamethrowers, minus production and shipping costs, could be contributing to Musk's multiple start-ups without taking on the same debt or diluting ownership like most ventures usually would.

Billionaire space exploration hobbyist and business magnate Elon Musk held the hottest party in Los Angeles over the weekend.

It continued: "I will not use this in a house, I will not point this at my spouse, I will not use this in an unsafe way, The best use is créme brulee".

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

While the merchandise certainly helps draw attention to Musk's boring ambitions and the holes he's drilling into Los Angeles streets, they're not how he's subsidizing most of the projects.

EA is once again separating itself from the crowd by holding its own EA Play event at the Hollywood Palladium ahead of E3 2018 . We know it's on PC, PlayStation 4 , and Xbox One , so we're expecting to see some playable demos to get our hands on.

Musk has previously joked that the flamethrowers will be ideal for an impeding zombie apocalypse. Don't worry if you can't make it; all Not-a-Flamethrowers will ship out this summer!

'Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!'

With the Boring Company, Musk aims to build a network of underground tunnels in Los Angeles that would move cars on electric skates. A tweet from Musk urged people to avoid "unintentionally burning things down".

The disclaimer also mandated that consumers check off several boxes under the prompt, "I understand The Boring Company isn't responsible for anything I do, no matter how genius or stupid".

Musk replied to him: "We don't think our product will be the cause of any wildfires, but The Boring Company is donating $10k".
