One hot party: First Boring Co. flamethrowers get picked up

12 June 2018, 11:16 | Austin Hogan

On that basis, who's to say the next-generation Tesla Roadster won't have a SpaceX option package with 10 rocket thrusters, as Musk claimed Saturday?

Musk tweeted "First 1000 Boring Company Flamethrowers being picked up today!" Even Musk has suggested doing things with them that violate the agreement.

The remaining 19,000 flamethrowers will be shipped to customers, but those lucky enough to attend the pick-up party were allowed to test out the device on site, by roasting ... what else?

Miguel Santiago, an American politician who serves in the California State Assembly, recently proposed legislation to stop sale of the flamethrowers.

While most customers were thrilled about the idea of owning and using a flamethrower, there were some who expressed concerns about it being misused by minors and criminals. "I will not use this in a house".

In a quaint message to flamethrower buyers, The Boring Company sent out an email alerting customers to today's pickup party in Los Angeles. I will not point this at my spouse.

Covington was the more aggressive one, while dos Anjos was trying to be as methodical as can be by picking and choosing his spots. When I'm ready to fight, now it's time to fight. "I think I will finish him before the fifth round", he said with confidence.


The best use is creme brulee.

Not all of the images depicted safe or controlled use of the machines, however.

So far, the listings on eBay do not appear to be drawing much action.

As the flamethrower becomes more popular with rising market prices on eBay, others are concerned about the safety hazards of the fire emitters. This suggestion probably should have a "Kids, do not try this at home" caution, because you know that's what people will do. And some see Musk's latest ploy as particularly reckless and insensitive.

In another tweet with a photo of a couple with their flamethrower and a baby carriage, Musk wrote, "Nothing makes your baby more zen than a few gentle puffs of a TBC Flamethrower'".

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