Miss your chance at getting your hands on one of Elon Musk's "not a flamethrower"?

As the promotional device started to land with customers, Musk posted a safety warning to customers on Twitter, stating: 'Please use as directed to avoid unintentionally burning things down.

It's unclear how much a round-trip would cost, but the Boring Company said it will be "comparable to or lower than current public transportation fares".
