    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 →

    These are the Alien and Predator fire pits welded together by metal artist Burned By Design from old propane tanks (previously: this Lord of The Rings Witch-King version). They make the perfect fire pits for the person who already has everything. Or the person who doesn't hav... / Continue →

    This is a short video of 3rd Marine Logistics Group, 9th Engineer Support Battalion demonstrating how to breach a concrete wall using explosives. They protect themselves with a ballistic blanket, which looks like a scrap of carpet but I'm assuming is not. Would you be the bla... / 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 →

    Just keep drinking, Jen -- that bouquet is mine. Because who doesn't want to drink out of a bottle that fifty other people's lips have touched, this is a video from a GoPro attached to a bottle of Fireball (sweet, cinnamon flavored candy liquor designed for children) being pas... / Continue →

    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 →
