Choosing one of his favorite communications forums, Musk took to Twitter to post some photos of the flamethrower customer pickup event, accompanying his tweets with enthusiastic comments.

Billionaire tech guru Elon Musk showed off pictures of the Boring Company's first commercial flamethrowers being distributed to lines of buyers today - and joked that the device has been renamed "Not a Flamethrower" so as not to run afoul of customs or shipping regulations.

While it may seem like just fun and games to some, people are already burning things down that should probably be avoided, and using the for-sure flamethrowers in ways that violate the terms of their purchase. "For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham".

It continued: 'I will not use this in a house, I will not point this at my spouse, I will not use this in an unsafe way, The best use is créme brulee'. 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.

Instead, the Boring Company torch guns function like large propane blowtorches.

The device comes with a 10-page manual which had additional tips: "Do not touch the not-a-flamethrower nozzle during or after use, as it could burn you".


Alarmed, Santiago decided that he would try to introduce a bill to slow down the sale of The Boring Company's flamethrowers. "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"

Don't call it a flamethrower. If TBC actually does plan to offer an ice blaster and expects it to be usefulwhen the "winter dry season" begins, the news should come soon.

"Definitely don't buy one", Musk tweeted in January.

According to the company, the privately-funded tunnel would be able to transport cars at 150 miles per hour (240 kph) to help with LA's "soul-destroying" congestion.
