Musk Sells Flamethrowers to Fund Boring Company

Elon Musk is selling flamethrowers and it's not fake news. it's a funding strategy for his Boring Company. I can't help but wonder what will be next? I very much like his approach to business, I have to say. Is there anyone else today with such fun ideas about how a business may be funded? It's kind of genius getting on the twin wagon of Musk-mania and the zombie fad.

Love it. It's almost like he's just taking the piss ... and getting rich doing it. Enjoy the odd optimistic-cynicism.

Ordering a flamethrower now ...

Maybe new Tesla's will come with a gun rack for flame throwers?

I absolutely must have one. Only $500 a pop, and not federally regulated! LOVE IT. You never know when the zombie apocalypse will be upon us.

So this guy wants to ban on  Musk’s  flamethrower. I can’t believe this is actually an issue as it’s just a glorified propane torch, meant as a novelty.

Well to some people, this is an inhumane dangerous flamethrower. To us others, it is a novelty butane torch. That’s why marketing matters.

Like they have to worry about flamethrowers. Today we could just walk in local store and buy a gun legally but we should be really scared of barbecue nerf guns? Yeah right.

They are already restricted in CA and require fire marshall approval to use because of the risk of brush fires, what actually makes sense.

The problem is when a politician says something about an issue in such a way that you can tell they are entirely clueless. Like this is a real problem. It would be better not to waste precious legislative time doing nonsense, like this one, to ban a flamethrower. With news like this it sounds more important to do it than to deal with any actual problems.
