The gadget, if it can be called that, is the “world's safest flamethrower” and by buying it, you are “guaranteed to liven up any party.” It costs $500 to pre-order (what did you think?) and it will come with “fees that may apply for international orders because of laws.”
If this is for real (and it might very well be, given last year's boring hat trick), Musk warns that those who pre-order will first receive “a terms and conditions rhyme for review and acceptance.” The flamethrower is not to be used “on Boring Company decorative lacquered hay bales or Boring Company dockside munitions warehouses.”
With it, you can get a fire extinguisher, sold “for exorbitant amounts of money” - $30, that is. Musk says “You can definitely buy one for less elsewhere, but this one comes with a cool sticker, and the button is conveniently riiight above.”
Some in the industry say that Musk is only doing this (selling hats and flamethrowers, that is) for kicks. Others point to a dire need of cash for the gazzilion projects the billionaire entangled himself into. Why say: just roll with it. We're talking about a guy that sells us dreams of the future and entertains us at the same time. What's wrong with that?
