    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 Stay Puft Marshmallow Man candle available from Firebox. It looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, costs $29, and smells like marshmallows. I'm not what the total burn time is, but hopefully a fair amount of hours. Is there some kind of rule for candle pricing... / 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 Hatching Dinosaur Candle available from Firebox. It costs $45 *spit-takes Sunny D* and reveals a porcelain baby raptor as it melts. Plus Firebox points out you get to keep the baby dinosaur after the candle is finished, just in case you thought it was just on loan... / 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 →

    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 →

    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 →

    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 →

    These are several photos of a smoldering rose bouquet that's been covered in ash. It looks like a scene straight out of God Of War. It's not though, it's a real picture. I don't know, something to do with dreams or something. A quote that reads like a way-too-long motivatio... / Continue →

    This is the Viking ship fire pit available from Etsy seller ImagineMetalArt. It costs $400, which is a little bit (technically a lot of bit) out of my fire pit budget at the moment. The ship measures approximately 40-inches long and 16-inches wide, so basically imagine my pen... / Continue →

    This is a red-hot knife built by certifiable crazy person Colin Furth that can cut and toast bread at the same time. He built it using a modified microwave transformer. Could you imagine sawing your own arm off with that thing? Do you think it would it cut and cauterize the ... / 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 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 →

    This is a short video of a flamethrower and fire hose doing battle. Who wins? SPOILER: the fire hose. The water wins. Although it did cheat and get a head start. Also, now I want to see a four-way battle between earth, water, fire and wind. Who do you think would win that... / Continue →

    The XM42 is allegedly the world's first commercially available handheld flamethrower. Is that true? No clue, I've never been in the market for a flamethrower before. Jk jk, I have never NOT been in the market for a flamethrower. I have dozens. I basically sleep on a pile o... / Continue →

    These are the mouth and ear candles made and sold by Etsy shop uncannyartshop. They cost $18 apiece and come in 15 different scents. Sadly, burning flesh isn't one of them. The ear one kind of reminds me of Sloth from the Goonies. HEY YOU GUYS! Who else was jealous of Slot... / Continue →

    This is the Gummi Bear Skeleton Candle. It's a 3-pound, nine-inch gummi bear shaped candle that melts to reveal a skeleton (previously: these very similar cat ones). They're currently a Kickstarter project, but already funded, so $40 will get you one in red, blue or pink, and... / Continue →
