    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 →

    This is the Darth Vader mask wood-burning stove built by Instructables member doddieszoomer. You can go to the Instructables website and follow his directions to build your own. Or you can follow the Google Maps directions to his house and steal this one. I'm kidding, please... / Continue →

    This is the third in Colin Furze's series of homemade X-Men abilities (previously: Wolverine claws and Magneto boots). This time he made Pyro's flamethrowers, capable of shooting 12-foot long flames from the wrist. Definitely not the kind of homemade superpower you'd want whe... / 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 $45 Darth Vader Toaster available for pre-order (they ship in July) from the BigBadToyStore. It toasts Vader's head on one slice of bread and the Star Wars logo on the other. It's basically the exact same as this Darth Vader toaster I posted back in 2008, except t... / Continue →

    Wow, we get it, God, you're angry. This is a video of firefighters conducting a controlled burn at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal wildlife refuge in Colorado when a dust devil forms and starts throwing around flaming tumbleweeds. The footage doesn't even look real. As cool as co... / Continue →

    This is a three and a half minute, ultra slow motion video of a match igniting. In real time matches ignite much quicker. Maybe not as quick as The Flash masturbates, but what is? I've heard he's so fast his penis has actually caught fire before. See how I tied that into th... / Continue →

    The Crausewell family of Dora, Alabama, had their lawn and trees toilet papered over the weekend by neighborhood kids. So what did they do? Clean up the best they could and wait for the next rain to dissolve the remaining toilet paper? NOPE, they decided to burn the toilet p... / Continue →

    Simon Bramhall, a surgeon at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, was suspended and is being investigated after a fellow surgeon discovered 'SB' seared into the liver of a patient Simon had previously worked on. Call me a traditionalist, but I would have seared a ... / Continue →

    This is 'War on Kinkade', a series of Thomas Kinkade paintings that have been upgraded with Star Wars themes by artist Jeff Bennett. I would proudly hang one of those over a fireplace. Mostly just because I want a fireplace. Hey Indy -- say your line. "Huh?" You know, it b... / Continue →
