People are already torching things they shouldn't with Elon Musk's flamethrowers

The devices, priced at Dollars 500 (approximately Rs 33,700) apiece, are being marketed and sold through Musk's other company, The Boring Company, which was set up in order to set up a subterranean transit network under Los Angeles to beat the city's endless traffic.

At least a thousand people gathered in front of SpaceX's California HQ, on Saturday, to attend the sale launch of the "Not-a-Flamethrower".

Musk named the device "Not-a-Flamethrower", in order to get around shipping regulations.

Musk said the device was renamed Not-a-Flamethrower, "due to recent regulatory/customs rules enacted to inhibit transport of anything called a Flamethrower".

The SpaceX CEO's tunnel construction firm, The Boring Company, delivered 1,000 of the 20,000 limited-run flamethrowers sold previous year. It also suggests having a fire extinguisher and a bucket of water on hand when using the Not-A-Flamethrower.

Musk tweeted "Flamethrower obv best way to light your fireplace/BBQ".

Musk tweeted what he claimed was the terms and conditions for the machines, some of which were presented in the style of the USA children's author Dr. Seuss.

The clever idea behind these flamethrower pick up parties originally stemmed from the fact that shipping these devices proved to be quite hard given the fact that they contained propane.

Choosing one of his favorite communications forums, Musk took to Twitter to post some photos of the flamethrower customer pickup event, accompanying his tweets with enthusiastic comments. These guys flame-roasted steaks.

While others used the device to toast the top of creme brûlée... I will not use this in an unsafe way. She accidentally burned a section of her garden's artificial grass when making a cooking video.

And that's all well and good, but still ... our world just became 20,000 flamethrowers richer, and it's only a matter of time.
