Elon Musk’s Flamethrower
Elon Musk’s Boring Company is better known for the tunneling technology is utilizes. What you perhaps might have overlooked, however, is its development of a flamethrower.
Yes, the founder of Tesla apparently has a flamethrower and it can be all yours for the low-low price of $600.
Is this a joke?
With the hats now sold, he recently tweeted that next on the list was the flamethrower.
The Tesla founder is known to be a bit of a fan of Spaceballs. A Mel Brooks parody film which also featured a similar joke weapon. A certain webpage, however, has had Reddit banding together to try and crack the password in place.

Cracking the password
On the official boring website, you will find a link to the aforementioned weapon. This page is, however, currently blocked by a password. One which has, for the moment, eluded all of Reddit’s best efforts to crack.
You can visit the website yourself here and have a try if you like.
To save you some time, I have already attempted the following myself: Password1, Password123, ElonMusk, Boring, VeryBoring, and toohottohandle.
Given that each response with answered with ‘Please try again.’ I also tried ‘again’ just to see if that would work. It didn’t.
What do we think about this?
I like the idea that it might be real, but then I doubt he would legally be able to sell a working flamethrower. Failing which, even if he could, for $600 I daresay people would be clamoring to get their own.
What do you think? An elaborate publicity stunt? Would you like an Elon Musk Flamethrower? Would you pay $600 for one? – Let us know in the comments.
