    This is a video from Arlington Heights, Illinois of a fallen power line electrifying a metal swing set, as well as the metal fence surrounding the yard. It sparks and tries to set fire to anything it can. I LIKE ITS STYLE. Now if there's one thing I learned from those dubbed... / Continue →

    Nice, and right by the end-cap of lighter fluid. This is a video of an entire fireworks display at Wal-Mart going off because two jackasses set it on fire. Now I love fire and fireworks as much as the next man who wishes he had giant Roman candles for arms, but you can't go a... / Continue →

    This is the Game Of Thrones inspired Hatching Dragon Candle available from Firebox (~$44). The candle egg melts to reveal a porcelain dragon inside, which you can keep (or smash to bits in a fit of rage) after the candle is entirely melted. The dragons are packed at random an... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a whoosh bottle. I think there's alcohol inside. I used to do this with lighter fluid and a 2-liter plastic Coke bottle but that was not nearly as cool. The sound this thing makes is incredible. Apparently it's dangerous though and the bottle can ex... / Continue →

    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 →

    To advertise their giant Jenga set (it's 8 times as large as a regular set and costs a staggering $120), this is a video of two dudes playing the game after setting the tower on fire. They don't get burned thanks to a special flame retardant goo they've covered their hands wit... / 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 →

    Because everybody's trying to figure out how to make some of that Youtube money, this is a video of a three tier, 7,000 match domino chain reaction (previously: a 6,000 match rectangle). Next week there will be an 8,000 match video, and the week after that a 9,000 match one. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of copper loving Youtuber Tito4re pouring molten copper on a giant jawbreaker. I'm pretty sure the jawbreaker wins this round too because the copper doesn't do much damage. I remember when I was a kid growing up in Alabama my brother and I both got giant jawbr... / 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 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 Inferno, a short video of people blowing fireballs captured in bullet-time using fifty separate cameras. Per the makers: "48 DSLR camera array + RED Epic (120fps) and GH4 (96fps). No CGI Animation or VFX. All imagery in this video was created in-camera." It really is... / 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 →
