What makes you think this is your topic? Once you post it, it belongs to the forum owner. I will post wherever I want. You need to stop taking things so personally. Just because you post a story doesn't mean that you need to take ownership of it. You didn't write the story. All you did was post it. If you really don't want to see my postings, feel free to ignore them.

I am the OP Bill.. look up at the top..

If I want to close the topic I can ask and it will happen..  That's what makes it mine.. and when you come here and post in MY topic I will answer you as best and as expediently as I can. That's part of being a good host in  my world and since you're here in the topic..welcome to my world Bill  :)

 I'm not going to ignore your posting in my topics ever.. so get used to it..  

You can exercise your own views but I do not have to abide or adhere to them and if they are diametrically opposed to mine in my topic I'l ALWAYS take the time to help you thru it somehow. 

So as to the flamer thing I suppose you are opposed to it but telling me that really doesn't hurt Elon's sales much, so I suggested maybe you could share your wisdom with him and perhaps show him where he messed up. I'm sure he'l appreciate that.   Cheers!!  :)

Elon Musk sold all 20K Boring flamethrowers, bringing in $10M

Elon Musk’s flamethrower, branded and sold via The Boring Company, his new tunnel digging venture, is now all sold out. That means 20,000 buyers have secured pre-orders, and at $500 per, that adds up to $10 million in committed funds heading to The Boring Co’s coffers.

Musk started selling these via The Boring Company’s website just a few short days ago, on Saturday, January 27. He noted that 15,000 were sold just yesterday, and now the remaining 5,000 are all claimed, per a tweet from the serial founder.

 

Flamethrowers sold out

The sell-out of flamethrower stock follows The Boring Company’s first successful merch venture, which involved selling 50,000 branded hats to fans. Musk must be feeling magnanimous after doing so well with these tangential revenue-generation tactics, because he’s also giving away a “complimentary” Boring Co fire extinguisher with each flamethrower sold.

 

The Boring Co. had been retailing these separately as $30 add-ons, but maybe some of the criticism levied against Musk and his company for selling something that potentially dangerous got through, or maybe no one bought any of the fire extinguishers and so they had a bunch of stock they needed to be rid of.

This doesn’t mean Musk has raised $10 million free and clear via the sale of the flamethrowers for his young company, but the markup is probably huge so the total sum of funds generated this way isn’t anything to sneeze at, either.

 

All sold out...

Will probably become a collector's item from here on out if he isn't making them anymore.  

No updated news on zombie apocalypses yet so I guess he stands by his last statement.

I'm going to use mine to trim the bushes and heat the pool. It's been a bit balmy here in Florida lately. 

What other uses can you think of?

Travis could use it for his hairy back.

Stray cats.

Instantly warm up the house on a cold winter evening. 

Mormons at the door.
