The definition of “late capitalism,” as far as I can tell, is all around us. It’s in the trees (which produce the fruits that wind up in your monthly-issued Juicero packs), in the water (pods, that is, which you pop into a different machine on your countertop), and even in the music (that pauses dramatically as Kendall Jenner solves police brutality with a Pepsi). But if you were hoping to get your own taste of it in the form of a flamethrower sold by a billionaire CEO with ambitions of turning humans into a multi-planetary species, I’m sorry to say that you, dear reader, are too late.

Elon Musk’s Boring Company, which currently more closely resembles Supreme than it does a transportation infrastructure outfit, sold its 20,000th (and final) branded flamethrower today. Musk officially put the flamethrowers on sale Saturday evening for $500 a pop, so his company has since raked in roughly $10 million in around 100 hours. Buyers will also receive a complimentary Boring fire extinguisher, Musk tweeted late Wednesday evening.

The flamethrowers, which are quite literally roof torches strapped to Airsoft rifles, are slated to ship this spring. There is already a politician trying to stop Musk’s idea by introducing legislation, which is adorable.
