I am IN!!!

and for $500 i might get two!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA




Do you have $500 lying around and want to spend it on something that will, inevitably, lead to a much costlier disaster? Elon Musk has you covered. His Boring Company—yes, that’s the one that digs tunnels—has released a flamethrower for some reason that probably has more to do with branding than a pivot to manufacturing more kinds of destructive devices than just gigantic drills. It’s not really a flamethrower so much as a very large torch, but it’s shaped like a flamethrower and gets what looks like a few feet of range, so we’ll throw Musk a bone here.


Its not really a flame-thrower, but it might be fun to melt snow with, or torch-down roofing in style, or threaten nosy neighbors.

Whatcha gonna do with yours?

Dual wield flame throwers.

I always asked my uncle to bring me back a flamethrower from war when I was younger.... I even drew him a picture of me using it on my little sister. (She was annoying and in my 12 year old mind that was a justifiable, im going to flame-thrower you, offense.)


Now I can finally live my dreams. Hold on let me email this to her hahahahaha.

I've played enough video games to know that this doesn't end well.

However there may be some epic YouTube videos and lawsuits ahead!!

I thought it was going to be one of his battery powered golfcars that burns you alive.

Not this stolen product.

My bad.

I will say the price and looks are pretty cool, after seeing what else is on the market.
It looks kinda weak though.

Yeah, doubt this will get past federal regulators. No matter how innocent it looks. Lmao.

Better to die from fire than bullets right???

In all honesty this is a brilliant marketing strategy because it probably only cost him $20 to make these things. It is just a regular Roofing torch with some cheap Chinese Super Soaker plastic gun furniture

S'mores. I'd also like to say good music concerts but any good security may take issue with that. Nobody said S'mores yet?

Still I don't have any use for a flamethrower.

S'mores is definitely a good idea!
I wonder if it would help hailing a taxi?

No lie, real ones used to be bought and sold at gun shows back in the 80's.

US military flame throwers, modified so they used flame igniters instead of phosphorus igniters.

The legal excuse for owning one was burning off weeds and scrub on your property.

As far as improvised, twin tanks and regulators to mix gasoline and compressed air out a nozzle.

You'll be arrested nowadays though, you aren't old enough to play with fire.

I was just at a gun show last year and this kind old man came up to me and said hey want to buy a flamethrower? And I was like hell yeah! But I was just a couple shekels short :-(. It uses kerosene and a pumping mechanism with a propane ignition. Shoots fiery streams of infernal fun up to 30 ft. Next time flamethrower next time
