As many people know, Elon Musk has quickly become a household name, he boasts some of the world’s most impressive companies including Tesla, Solar City and SpaceX. However Musk has shown that he’s more than just a tech mogul, but a funny and sarcastic entrepreneur as well. His latest venture, The Boring Company, was originally created to solve the urban problem of congestion on the roads by digging tunnels underground.
From boringcompany.com: “Tunnels are weatherproof, out of sight and won’t fall on your head.”
The above? Evidence of a logical and sound mind. Musk also makes sure to address the possibility of flying cars, which has been a topic of fascinated discussion ever since Marty McFly transported himself to the future.
“Flying cars have issues with weather, noise, and generally increase anxiety levels of those below them.”
Amidst the launch of a secret SpaceX satellite and the growing concerns over the future of AI, Musk and the Boring Company have been hard at work. While the development of the tunnel systems are still in the early stages, Musk has moved forward with other endeavors within the company. His announcement of the world’s most boring hat for sale saw unit sales of 4000 hats within a day.
He was quick to use his business acumen to start promotions of the hat.
If there are any doubts of Musk’s follow through on his promises, let it be known that on Dec 10, 2017 Elon Musk tweeted : “After 50k hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower”
On January 27, 2018 a life changing announcement occurred, The Boring Company started selling the flamethrowers.
This photo was posted on Musk’s own Instagram with the caption “Great for roasting nuts”
(Pre-order on boringcompany.com for $500, also available for purchase, a Boring Company Fire Extinguisher for $30 that comes with a sticker.)
Of course this generated a lot of buzz on twitter and it makes us appreciate the human genius behind some of the most advanced technologies in the world.
This caused some rumors and conspiracy theories to begin flying around the internet.
So let’s take a moment to appreciate this man who has committed his life’s work to making the world a better place.
