Re: Easy fix make more flamethrowers

So his Boring company sold 20k limited run of flamethrowers to fund his tunneling startup.

I know lots of people on here don't like the man, but making a simple popular product with the staff, materials, and skills you have in order to find what you want the company to really do, is quite a clever way to fund your startup. Worst case, you restructure and spin out the inadvertently more successful flamethrower startup.

Obviously that ignores the difficulty in achieving the simple popular product step, given that most companies fail in the first 12 months....
