Elon Musk Makes $4 Million After Joke He Made On Twitter
Elon Musk has flogged over $4 million worth of flamethrowers because, well, he’s Elon Musk innit. That’s how he rolls.
The Boring Company is selling a flamethrower for $500 and Musk, being Musk, is tweeting their milestones.
He sold 1,000 units within three hours overnight on January 27 and 28, and sold a further 2,000 during the day. This morning, it hit the 7,000 mark. He only needs to reach 8,000 to bag himself the $4 million mark, which he’s surely done by now.
If you’re wanting one, don’t worry. There’s a total of 20,000 flamethrowers. You can find out more about them here.
Hey, speaking of Elon Musk did you hear about that new book detailing the seedy side of Silicon Valley? It includes the businessman ‘accidentally’ turning up to a sex party.
In an extract from her forthcoming book Brotopia, about the private side of the tech industry, journalist Emily Chang recalled a June 2017 party at a venture capitalist’s house that turned a bit over-familiar.
Elon’s people denied him having any sexual involvement at the shindig despite confirming he had been there. And why didn’t he get stuck in, as it were? Old Musk thought it was a ‘corporate’ costume-themed party, apparently.
He spent his time talking about technology and business before leaving at 1am, a representative told Insider.
Elon was at the party for a couple hours and left around 1am after talking with several DFJ-funded entrepreneurs about technology and building companies.
His impression was that it was a corporate party with a costume theme, not a ‘sex party’, and there was no indication that it would become one after he left.
