    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 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 →

    In today's real visions of the future segment, here's a video of a quadrocopter with a flamethrower attached, roasting a turkey and presumably starting a forest fire (previously: the quadrocopter with a gun attached the same guy made). Although it's not so much roasting the tu... / 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 →

    This is a video from Youtuber PowerModz of Tickle Me Elmo getting blasted with a jet engine. You know, because some people have jet engines mounted to the back of their trucks and like to experiment with them. Poor Elmo never stood a chance. Now I totally get why they named ... / 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 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 the green flame jack o' lantern made by a high school chemistry teacher. It presumably distracted students long enough to look up from their phones for a second, then back at their phones to take a picture. Want to make your own? We're in luck! Well, I'm completely ... / 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 a video from a family escaping a wildfire in Lake County, California. The fire destroyed 95-square miles, claimed one life, destroyed hundreds of homes, and displaced some 13,000 residents. That is awful. This is what it looked like driving through the fire while the... / 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 →

    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 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 →

    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 →

    This is the 80's style music video for David Hasselhoff's new song 'True Survivor', the theme to the crowdfunded film 'Kung Fury'. The song is pretty awful, but the music video -- the music video was decent. It's got everything: dinosaurs, fire, sick graphics, more fire, futu... / Continue →
