Elon Musk's Boring Flamethrower Nets $4 Million in Pre-Orders

A lot of people got a major boost for their zombie apocalypse/alien invasion preparation. There's still time to get your own, but not a whole lot of time.


Many of us have given thought to how we'd maneuver in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Maybe Elon Musk has as well, maybe he hasn't, but he has certainly provided people with an opportunity to purchase an interesting addition to our arsenals. Preorders for The Boring Company Flamethrower went live not too long ago and has already brought in over $4 million. Roughly 7,000 out of 20,000 have been sold as of this morning, so there's still a chance for you if you're interested.

This $500 flamethrower is an expensive product of boredom and The Verge reported the significant leap in presales today. Does this ignite your passion? Are you fired up? Let us know in Chatty if you'll be shelling out for this weapon and what exactly you'll be using it for.
