    This is a video from the Slow-Mo Guys of a homemade fire tornado filmed in ultra slow motion. Previously: a natural fire tornado in (where else?) Australia. It was pretty mesmerizing to watch. You know what's even scarier than a fire tornado though? A LAVA HURRICANE. I lik... / Continue →

    This is a recorded livesteam video from some guy who sets fire to his room while trying to perform lighter tricks. Actually, I have no clue what he was trying to do. It wasn't safe though. Now he'll never get the fire smell out that room. Plus when he tries to sell those bo... / Continue →

    This is a video of rocket propelled grenades blowing through layer after layer of bulletproof glass. There is no stopping them. So if you were thinking about bringing bulletproof glass to an RPG fight, I would reconsider. I'm also reconsidering giving my elderly apartment ne... / Continue →

    This is the five-foot Barad-dûr fire pit created by ImagineMetalArt. It's for sale on Etsy for $690 if you're interested. I like the dragon flying around the bottom, I thought that was a nice touch. Still, you know what the first thing I think is everytime I see something li... / Continue →

    This is a short, worthwhile video of stunt couple Spark FireDance 'painting' with flames in slow motion. I think I might have seen a dragon around the 0:25 mark. Or -- OR -- was that a Pheonix RISING FROM THE ASHES? Hmm? Hmmmmmmm? It was just fire, I know. I was just hopin... / Continue →

    This is Sky Ladder, a pyrotechnic display created by Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang to celebrate his grandmother's 100th birthday. It was achieved by igniting a gunpowder-covered wire ladder danging some 500-meters (~1,640-feet) from a weather balloon. The result is spectacular,... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Human Torch drone built by marketing firm Thinkmodo flying around a firefighting training facility in New York. It looks pretty believable. So, who's going to see the new Fantastic 4 movie this weekend? What's the premise of this one anyways? Isn't it... / Continue →

    These are the Alien and Predator fire pits welded together by metal artist Burned By Design from old propane tanks (previously: this Lord of The Rings Witch-King version). They make the perfect fire pits for the person who already has everything. Or the person who doesn't hav... / Continue →

    This is a short video of 3rd Marine Logistics Group, 9th Engineer Support Battalion demonstrating how to breach a concrete wall using explosives. They protect themselves with a ballistic blanket, which looks like a scrap of carpet but I'm assuming is not. Would you be the bla... / Continue →

    This is a video documenting what happens when you pour water on a grease fire, filmed at 2,500 frames/second. It basically produces a massive, face-melting fireball. Which is exactly why you should never try using water to put out a grease fire. You should also never use a ... / Continue →

    This is a video from very amateur madman TheBackyardScientist showing you how to make your own propane rifle. It's pretty simple. So simple you could easily do it in your garage after school with zero adult supervision. Not that I'm encouraging that, because I'm not. As muc... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Youtuber odog8888888888888888 (who may have fallen asleep on the keyboard while picking his Youtube name) using a leafblower to stoke the fire in a chimenea. Apparently his mom wasn't too happy about (you have to hear her yelling at the end of the vide... / Continue →

    Just keep drinking, Jen -- that bouquet is mine. Because who doesn't want to drink out of a bottle that fifty other people's lips have touched, this is a video from a GoPro attached to a bottle of Fireball (sweet, cinnamon flavored candy liquor designed for children) being pas... / Continue →

    Oh boy, a circus! This is the Weldon Springs, Missouri home being covered with fumigation tents to kill the 5,000+ brown recluse residents. Apparently the spider problem got so bad they were "bleeding out of the walls," which is particularly terrifying imagery because WALLS B... / Continue →

    Not gonna lie, I did think those were shit stains at first. 13-year old Ariel Tolfree of Texas says her Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone allegedly "slipped under her pillow" while she was falling asleep one night and she woke up to it on fire. And that's why you never sleep with ... / 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 →

    This is a photo of a firenado recently captured by Instagrammer nicejalepeno (I prefer evilhabaneros) while traveling through Chillicothe, Missouri. Apparently a farmer was burning off one of his fields when the wind whipped up a fire whirl. Previously: video of this one ca... / Continue →

    This is the Pyro Board, a table containing 2,500 flames that respond to the audio pumped beneath it. It's like a real-life Winamp visualizer. Remember in college when you used to get high and listen to your favorite music at night watching Winamp at full screen? Those were s... / Continue →

    Great job painting the house. This is a slow-motion video of CrazyRussianHacker blowing fireballs thanks to the help of a mouthful of cornstarch. Apparently if you blow cornstarch into a fire it flames up real big like a fireball. But I was already aware of that, because if t... / Continue →
