    First there was a Photoshopped Death Star fire pit, then there was a fair looking real one, and now, the best one to date. Apparently somebody bought the pit at auction and gave it to their friend and Redditor alphacodemonkey as a gift. It must be nice to have such a good fri... / Continue →

    Charmed Aroma candles are $27 natural soy wax candles that each have a ring inside. You just melt the candle until you see the foil bag, then tweezer it out (or bare-hand it if you're a badass), open, and put your new ring on. The rings come randomly packed in sizes 6 - 8 and... / Continue →

    Because fire is one of the few things I still care about in this world, this is a video of The Slow Mo Guys capturing a 50-foot flamethrower in 4K definition and ultra slow motion. It is glorious. You can actually see the fire chasing the fuel mist trying to ignite it. The g... / Continue →

    In news that makes me infinitely sad you can't smell Youtube videos, this is a video of 6,000 wooden matches being lit. Both the sound and visual provide for a very enjoyable experience. I just want to smell it so bad. I guess I could get 6,000 matches myself, but that sound... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber NorthSurvival demonstrating how to start a fire with a lemon, some copper clips, zinc nails, wire, steel wool and toilet paper. So if you're ever lost in the woods with a lemon, some copper clips, zinc nails, wire, steel wool and toilet paper, you c... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of Elide fire-extinguishing balls. You just toss a ball in the fire and POOF, fire goes out (previously: these tossable fire extinguishers from Japan). I'm not really sure what makes the fire go out, but I'm assuming a proprietary blend of dragon... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garbage truck exploding in (where else?) New Jersey. Apparently the truck finally exploded after the fire reached one of the vehicle's natural gas tanks, which shot off "like a missile" according to local police captain James Stevens. Thankfully, nobody w... / Continue →

    This is the flame-powered lightsaber built by electrical engineer Allen Pan. It even makes authentic sound effects when turned on and off. The blade is a little thin to look like an actual lightsaber, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. Obviously, I'm going to... / Continue →

    This is the six and a half foot yellow jacket wasp nest spotted in Tampa, Florida. The buzz of all the wasps flying by the camera is terrifying. You know, last week a friend of mine fake-punched me in the stomach and told me I'm getting a belly, and I told him actually it's j... / Continue →

    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 →

    Did I get it? This is the surveillance footage/video news report about a man who spotted a spider on his gas tank when he was about to pump gas. So what did he do? What any other person who I can't believe has lived long enough to be able to drive a car would do -- he pulled... / 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 →

    Moment is a candle holder (available soon from this online store) created by designer Lars Beller Fjetland that extinguishes a candle's flame when it starts to burn too low. A neat idea, but you should still never leave a candle unattended. Or a child. Both were practically ... / Continue →

    These are The Jacks, ceramic candle holders that look like they cry wax as the candles burn. They are currently a Kickstarter campaign but have already met their funding goal. They come in deer head, rabbit head and human skull varieties and cost $28 and up. Refill candles w... / Continue →

    Note: Higher res version HERE. Because your nightmares are my dream-come-trues, this is the photo taken by Redditor Jancer16 after seeing a large spider wash down the drain in his bathroom. Are those spider eyes peering back? Well it's definitely not a kitten, that's for sur... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red hot ball of nickel being placed on a Nokia 3310 brick phone. It catches fire immediately, presumably because there was no SIM card installed. You gotta install that SIM card. I actually used to have one of those phones. I dropped it so many times an... / 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 →

    This is a video of a red-hot ball of nickel melting a block of floral foam. For those of you who didn't take a floral design course in college with your then-girlfriend, floral foam is a block of green absorbent foam you use to make flower arrangements so the cut stems can sti... / Continue →
