Elon Musk’s ‘Not a Flamethrower’ Devices Show Up on eBay for Thousands

On Saturday, Musk hosted a pick-up party in Los Angeles where dozens gathered to get their hands on the first batch.

Ahead of the original launch of the gun, he said: 'When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower.

"Like most Americans, I am in awe in of Mr. Musk's genius - the brains behind Tesla, PayPal, SolarCity, and Space X. But as President Truman and Stan Lee have taught us all, "With great power comes great responsibility" he wrote.

Mr Kim is notoriously paranoid about leaving behind person and biological information about himself when he travels overseas . The president said North Korea has a sizable nuclear arsenal and that Kim knows its details and capabilities very well.

Musk tweeted "First 1000 Boring Company Flamethrowers being picked up today!"

'Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!' "I will not use this in a house". A tweet from Musk urged people to avoid "unintentionally burning things down".

The announcement of the flamethrower sales followed the company selling roughly 50,000 hats for $20 each, raising $1m in revenue. Shortly after the company sold out of the devices, Musk said it would have to make a change to the name of the flamethrower so that it could ship it to customers. I will not use this in an unsafe way. An instruction manual was for sale for $250 (R6 535). On eBay, interested buyers can bid on several listings for the Boring Co.'s "Not a Flamethrower".

The article also stresses the need for confidentiality - meaning Trump will have to resist tweeting the minutes of the meeting. Here is a rundown of the biggest actions that took place overnight, as Singapore is 12 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time.

As of Monday morning there were a number of ads on eBay with "buy it now" prices listed as high as $20,000.

As such, Musk and SpaceX engineer Steve Davis thought that it would be a much better idea to do custom deliveries of the flamethrowers for those that had purchased them, according to Teslarati. And some see Musk's latest ploy as particularly reckless and insensitive.

The Boring Company has proposed to build a tunnel through West Los Angeles, passing underneath Sepulveda Boulevard through Culver City.

Kim stood silently alongside, but the North Korean leader had earlier described their meeting as a "a good prelude to peace". The former National Basketball Association player visited Pyongyang five times since the North Korean leader took charge.

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