    I am getting so frustrated with Elon Musk lately. I don’t need a bloody hat or flamethrower I need my car to do what I paid for and at least be able to turn most corners without me having to grab the wheel as it beers over the central line for no reason. It clearly knows where the line is as it shows the car going over it on the screen. In fact I could list many Tesla things I need more than a large Bunsen burner inside an airsoft gun.

    Remember that the hats and flamethrowers are from a totally different company than the one that makes your car. No resources have been moved from developing FSD to selling flamethrowers.

    I know, other than the time Elon is spending prancing around with a fake flamethrower could be spent by him on actually working on his business that I have invested in delivering what they have promised.

    If a country had a leader who spent half his time goofing around and not actually running the country people would complain...

    The man is allowed to have some fun. Do you want him not to date, too? Can he have lunch breaks? Spend time with his kids?

    Speak for yourself. I never knew how badly I needed a flamethrower until now.

    Unless you work as many hours as he does, don't even start. As mentioned by others, he is allowed to have a personal live.
    Have you really you looked at our countries current "leadership"?

    Agree with Bonnie. If he wants to build a company to dig a tunnel that gets him to work 10 minutes faster every day - he's earned whatever time he wants to invest it that company. If he does nothing the rest of this life (I really doubt that he is going to stop doing stuff) but if he did nothing the rest of his life, he's already done 10 times more to help the country and the world than most leaders have or will do and thousands of times more than the average citizen (including myself). My contribution was to buy three Boring Company caps.

    Well, he was sleeping at the Gigafactory. That's like standing around watching tech guys build stuff.

    Flamethrowers are for kids. I want a doll that looks like Elon and says "boring" every time you push its belly.

    Actually, it’s “not a” flamethrower:

    From Twitter: “Apparently, some customs agencies are saying they won’t allow shipment of anything called a “Flamethrower”. To solve this, we are renaming it “Not a Flamethrower”.

    Yes... EXACTLY!

    Hopefully he'll get off his rear and stop lazing around only running 4-5 companies trying to change the world solar system for the betterment of humanity and preservation of the species and get some REAL work done!

    I suggest he also take some of these unfair billions he's bilked us out of and buy some energy drink so he doesn't have to sleep so much either. Can we just get him an IV drip so we can reduce eating time as well?

    I just hope he doesn't try to pull a fast one and have a nervous breakdown or stroke so he can get out of his obligations to us.... that selfish jerk.

    Not sure if most Customs Agencies appreciate the mischievous humour. Mailing drugs stating “not cocaine” doesn’t work!
