    Oh boy, a circus! This is the Weldon Springs, Missouri home being covered with fumigation tents to kill the 5,000+ brown recluse residents. Apparently the spider problem got so bad they were "bleeding out of the walls," which is particularly terrifying imagery because WALLS B... / Continue →

    Not gonna lie, I did think those were shit stains at first. 13-year old Ariel Tolfree of Texas says her Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone allegedly "slipped under her pillow" while she was falling asleep one night and she woke up to it on fire. And that's why you never sleep with ... / Continue →

    This is a video of one of Vat19's 5-pound Gummi Bears producing a fireworks extravaganza in hot potassium chlorate. I remember my high school chemistry teacher was going to perform this same experiment. The only problem is he was going to use Watermelon Sour Patch Kids, and I... / 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 Pyro Board, a table containing 2,500 flames that respond to the audio pumped beneath it. It's like a real-life Winamp visualizer. Remember in college when you used to get high and listen to your favorite music at night watching Winamp at full screen? Those were s... / Continue →

    Great job painting the house. This is a slow-motion video of CrazyRussianHacker blowing fireballs thanks to the help of a mouthful of cornstarch. Apparently if you blow cornstarch into a fire it flames up real big like a fireball. But I was already aware of that, because if t... / Continue →

    This is a video of drummer Tyler Williams of the Beau Hodges Band demoing a bunch of Firepixel flamethrowers that respond to different drum beats via attached MIDI controllers. Cool, but I want voice activated flamethrowers. IN MY CAR. Each FirePixel is capable of 256 differe... / 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 →

    This is a video of flaming skateboard tricks performed by Jonathan and Jason Bastian and filmed at 2,000 frames per second by the folks of BeyondSlowMotion. I love watching things burn. Especially the homes of my enemies on the evening news. I know there's a warning at the be... / Continue →

    Note: Several dirty words but they aren't nearly loud or distinguishable enough so yell your own as you watch. So if you don't follow Geekologie on Facebook because you're too embarrassed to admit to your friends you and I are in a relationship, my hard drive crashed yesterday... / Continue →

    Note: Not a real fire, I just added that for effect. This is the FlameStower USB charger (links to Kickstarter campaign if you want to order one). It charges any USB enabled device with the power of fire. You just unfold the unit, fill the cup on top with water (no word if s... / Continue →

    This is some weird-ass cartoon commercial from Japan for the Jii lighter, a contact lighter (no flame, just a hot coil) that is USB rechargeable. The commercial starts on a dark and stormy night when a mad scientist creates the lighter Frankenstein style, which then proceeds t... / Continue →

    This is a video from Rated RR of beer kegs being exploded with detonating cord. I'm not gonna lie, it was a little hard to watch all that beer get wasted. Speaking of -- somebody should develop an app that connects people at the bar who can't finish their beer with people wh... / Continue →

    This is the $35 Tactical BBQ Apron available from ThinkGeek. It looks like riot gear and has all sorts of pouches and straps to hold your barbeque tools. It won't stop a bullet though, so you better not f*** up my burger. You know what happened to the last guy who overcooked... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a potentially fired high school chemistry teacher performing the classic 'What happens if you light a fireball right in front of an emergency water sprinkler' experiment. The experiment goes amazingly well, and I'm sure all the students took something ... / Continue →

    This is the interactive fireball-throwing wall that Wizards of the Coast (who, for the record, make way better games than Wizards of the Midwest) had on display at PAX East to hype Magic: The Gathering. It uses Kinect motion-tracking and "real time physics and spacial sound e... / Continue →

    This is a video from Scott Stevenson of a powerful burning laser igniting the alcohol fumes in a series of glass bottles (previously: laser popping balloons and igniting a firecracker inside a balloon). Wow -- lasers, fire and alcohol: three of my favorite things. I'd say boo... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Darth Vader meditation chamber fireplace designed by Dave Delisle. It can be opened and closed to adjust the room temperature or kept closed when not in use. Of course it can't REALLY do anything because it's just a computer rendering and not a real thi... / Continue →

    This is a video of some brobros lighting a bonfire with a homemade bazooka. And by bazooka I mean pipe with a firework in it. Still, the actual bonfire ignition is LEGIT. I think every Youtube video should at least have one explosion this size or larger. Except all the cat ... / Continue →

    Yaaaar -- set sail for smores! That...is a nice setup. To the right of the ship you can even see some swords for roasting hot dogs/marshmallows/squirrels. So yeah, this pirate ship fire pit: you want it, I want it, let's go steal it. Then we can alternate ownership on weeke... / Continue →
