Here's Elon Musk's $600 Boring Company flamethrower

• https://www.theverge.com

SpaceX, Tesla, and Boring Company CEO Elon Musk is known for making bold promises on deadlines he often can't keep. That's why this one from last December sounded more like an Onion headline than anything: "After [we sell] 50k [Boring Company] hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower." On Christmas Eve, after selling said 50,000 hats, he tweeted that the flamethrowers were coming "soon!"

Mark this down as one of the promises Elon delivers on, apparently, because it looks like the Boring Company flamethrower is here. Redditors in a few SpaceX, Boring Company, and Musk-related subreddits noticed earlier this week that the URL "boringcompany.com/flamethrower" started redirecting to a page with a password box. And at least one user was able to guess the original password, too: "flame." (It's since been changed.)
