    This is the third in Colin Furze's series of homemade X-Men abilities (previously: Wolverine claws and Magneto boots). This time he made Pyro's flamethrowers, capable of shooting 12-foot long flames from the wrist. Definitely not the kind of homemade superpower you'd want whe... / Continue →

    This is a video of one of Vat19's 5-pound Gummi Bears producing a fireworks extravaganza in hot potassium chlorate. I remember my high school chemistry teacher was going to perform this same experiment. The only problem is he was going to use Watermelon Sour Patch Kids, and I... / Continue →

    Mazda has recalled all 2010-2012 Mazda 6's with 4-cylinder engines because spiders can crawl into the fuel tank, spin webs that can cause a pressure build up, which can lead to cracks in the tank and fires. And nobody but a stuntman wants to drive a car that's on fire. As b... / Continue →

    Wow, we get it, God, you're angry. This is a video of firefighters conducting a controlled burn at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal wildlife refuge in Colorado when a dust devil forms and starts throwing around flaming tumbleweeds. The footage doesn't even look real. As cool as co... / Continue →

    This is Youtuber COOP3RDRUMM3R covering Ellie Goulding's 'Burn' (appropriate) with flaming drumsticks. He warns everyone not to try it themselves, but I've already got my drumsticks soaking in kerosene. I'm gonna sprinkle my symbols with gunpowder too for EXTRA EFFECT. I wan... / Continue →

    This is a video of drummer Tyler Williams of the Beau Hodges Band demoing a bunch of Firepixel flamethrowers that respond to different drum beats via attached MIDI controllers. Cool, but I want voice activated flamethrowers. IN MY CAR. Each FirePixel is capable of 256 differe... / Continue →
