The Boring Company's Not a Flamethrower is a joke compared to actual flamethrowers

I own a propane torch, so I know one when I see one. The Boring Company's Not a Flamethrower? It's definitely a propane torch… which, I suppose, means that Musk's marketing department is pretty much on the mark.

To drive the point of the Not a Flamethrower's not being a flamethrower home, the folks at subjected the Not a Flamethrower to the Pepsi challenge against a Vietnam-era M9 flamethrower and a XM34. Seeing how much more destructive these two weapons are compared to Musk's torch makes me glad that it's definitely not a flamethrower that the Boring Company was selling.
