That's Nice, That's Safe: Backyard Scientist Builds A Molten Metal Squirtgun

July 28, 2017

This is a video of Backyard Scientist Kevin demonstrating his molten metal squirtgun (which looks suspiciously like a gun from Fallout). In this case, he shoots 170-230 °C (338-446 °F) molten pewter (aka Terminator juice) trying to melt various objects (the most interesting of which is probably the pewter pitcher at 4:10). Then when he runs out of pewter he uses ketchup and mustard to make a couple hotdogs. Then he turns the gun into a flamethrower and starts torching the dogs and his backyard. I don't know, you act like this was supposed to make sense.

Keep going for the video, but feel free to skip around because it's ten minutes long and that's just not right.

Thanks to n0nentity, who agrees this guy is in the fast lane for mad scientist status by the time he graduates college.

  • Meh

    It must be nice get rich of youtube. Damn.

  • He's like a Batman villain.

    Not like a new, cool one. Like one of those super lame, one-issue 1950's comics villain.

    Safety is this fuckhead's middle name. He's Kevin Backdoor Safety Scientist lastname (I don't know or care what his last name is).

    Can't wait for the inevitable "I'm backyard scientist. Here's how I lost my eye" video.

  • Draco Basileus

    This guy is on an NSA watch list, for sure.
