Elon Musk Denies Rumors He's Secretly Creating a Zombie Apocalypse

Another one of the SpaceX founder's projects, The Boring Company, has just started advertising flamethrowers on its website, after Musk promised last December that would be the firm's next product.

To go alongside your new flamethrower, Musk is selling an "overpriced" fire extinguisher - good idea - for $30 (£21), the item has the description: "Buy an overpriced Boring Company fire extinguisher!"

Who even knows - but please, Elon, roast as many nuts as you want, just don't attack us all with this Boring Company flamethrower. It may even be classed as a unsafe weapon, but at least The Boring Company will let you have a refund if the flamethrower is restricted or made too costly by customs fees in your country. It's not really a flamethrower so much as a very large torch, but it's shaped like a flamethrower and gets what looks like a few feet of range, so we'll throw Musk a bone here.

"Guaranteed to liven up any party!" the company's website mischievously proclaims.

Japan-South Korea ties are also connected to Japan's relationship with China, which has recently shown signs of a thaw. Mattis also plans to meet with South Korea's Minister of National Defense Song Young-moo, who's also on Oahu.

For those who missed the reveal of The Boring Company's flamethrower over the weekend, allow me to bring you up to speed.

Elon Musk - the enigmatic billionaire who cut his teeth by founding PayPal before giving the world Tesla Motors and SpaceX - is now burning up the Internet with the promise of selling a flamethrower! "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!" The shipping begins in Spring. City officials there have met with Musk's team and say they're open to "exploring options that improve mobility for residents and visitors to the nation's capital", according to a spokesman for Washington's Department of Transportation.

Musk launched the flamethrower on Saturday, posting photos, videos, and - most importantly - links to order it on social media.

4,000 pre-orders for the weapons were made within the first 24 hours they were on sale. The Boring Company's previous offering was a simple black baseball hat with the company's logo.
