  1. Tesla fanboys be offsetting their cars’ eco-ness by using dat flame’thrower’ (it sorta looks like a blowtorch?)

  2. Speaking of ancient flamethrowers, you forgot a couple of examples. The ancient Greeks had a land device that consisted of a pot full of fire and a bellow on a long tube mounted on a long pole with the pot at the end. They used this thing to burn down the wooden walls of another small town. A bit later, the Byzantines perfected the flamethrower by making it small and portable enough for a single soldier to operate and carry. They were deployed on the front lines in a land battle. It was called Greek Fire.

  3. Elon Musk’s Gas flamethrower maybe good for barbecue, but useless as a flamethrower compare to conventional flamethrower which use liquid fuel.
