Boring Company Flamethrower Is Ideal for Crème Brûlée, Bizarre Rules Claim

Elon Musk does not want you to burn your house down.

Elon Musk has a top tip for the Boring Company’s backers: Don’t use its $500 flamethrower to impress romantic interests. The product officially known as “not-a-flamethrower,” apparently in a bid to thwart bans from customs agencies, comes with a stringent set of terms and conditions that were revealed on Thursday by preorder buyers.

A Twitter user called “Everyday Astronaut” shared images of the bizarre conditions, which asks people who ordered one of the 20,000 flamethrowers to fill out a Google Form agreeing to conditions. These include agreeing not to harm others, not putting anything flammable in its vicinity, burning things, pointing at a spouse … basically doing anything likely to make the buyer a contestant for the Darwin Awards. The best use, as suggested by the form in a Dr. Seuss-like rhyme, is for making a crème brûlée. While most chefs would probably use a slightly cheaper torch to harden the caramel, it’s interesting to note that the Boring Company has by implication started selling kitchenware.

( of the kitchen, the Boring Company is making big strides. Musk shared a video Thursday night of the tunnel-digging venture’s two-mile test tunnel in suburban Los Angeles. The company plans to offer free rides to the public in a matter of months, with work already underway on a route between Washington, D.C., and New York City.

Looking further forward, Musk has ambitious goals for the Boring Company. Musk revealed on Thursday plans to build a “true hyperloop with pressurized pods in near-vacuum tunnels” between San Francisco and Los Angeles, a distance of approximately 350 miles. The hyperloop, first outlined by Musk in a 2013 white paper, can theoretically transport pods at a maximum speed of 700 miles per hour, meaning the trip could take around 30 minutes.

It all starts with the “not-a-flamethrower,” which along with branded hats — and around $100 million of Musk’s own money — has formed the basis of its initial funding. Shipping dates for the device are unclear, but the official website lists a spring delivery window.

Musk’s hot new company is about to get a whole lot hotter.
