Elon Musk's company sells thousands of flamethrowers

Musk kept his millions of followers on social media well updated with the events of the day and even warned customers in a series of Tweets about the obvious dangers of owning a flamethrower. An initial offering of 20,000 flamethrowers, priced at $500 each, sold out within four days in January.

Strictly speaking, Musk's creation is not actually a flamethrower because it only shoots fire for a short distance. "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower". Musk tweeted the terms and conditions for the owners on the style of Dr. Seuss.

"In a ideal world, I don't see any reason why anybody needs something like this out of a legitimate commercial use". Musk joked when the devices went on sale. I will not point this at my spouse. That amounts to $10 million in revenue for The Boring Company, which recently released video showing a tunnel it dug near the headquarters to demonstrate how it hopes to speed up traffic. I will not use this in an unsafe way.

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

Fifteen former immigration judges signed a letter calling Mr Sessions' decision "an affront to the rule of law". He remanded the case of A-B- back to Judge Stuart Couch in Charlotte, North Carolina, for further proceedings.

It's finally been shipped to a small number of people who are using their new fire spitters to light spliffs, burn the top of creme brulees and generally torch everything in sight.

Several Boring Co. flamethrowers were listed on eBay from $2,800 to $3,333 on Monday night. The most eager customers can forgo the bidding process and pay the eBay "buy it now price", which is as high as $20,000. You never know what Musk will come up with next. And some see Musk's latest ploy as particularly reckless and insensitive.

Crowds of ecstatic customers are busy picking up flamethrowers in Los Angeles as Elon Musk distributes the first thousand flamethrowers today that were ordered through The Boring Company. Plus, The Boring Company said it is going to donate $10,000 to California Wildfire Relief Fund.
