Elon Musk sells 10,000 flamethrowers in 48 hours [Updated]
Over the last 15 years, Elon Musk's companies have had a big impact on the rocket, electric car, and battery markets. This weekend, Musk entered yet another new market: flamethrowers. Musk's Boring Company began selling branded novelty flamethrowers for $500 apiece.
"Obviously, a flamethrower is a super terrible idea," Musk tweeted on Saturday evening. "Definitely don't buy one."
By Monday afternoon, customers had reserved 10,000 of the 20,000 units the company planned to produce.
