    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 →

    This is a video of a "professional" demonstrating what happens when you step on a lava flow. You don't actually sink, it just gives a little before trying to set your shoe on fire. But what about the even hotter, redder lava in the crater of a volcano? Would a really light p... / 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 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 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 →

    Mazda has recalled all 2010-2012 Mazda 6's with 4-cylinder engines because spiders can crawl into the fuel tank, spin webs that can cause a pressure build up, which can lead to cracks in the tank and fires. And nobody but a stuntman wants to drive a car that's on fire. As b... / 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 →

    These are the remains of a Roomba from Austria that allegedly turned itself on, ran onto a kitchen hotplate, and burned to death. Robot suicide? We can only hope. I like how you can see the ash tire tracks from when it was running around in circles while on fire. That makes... / 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 →

    According to eyewitnesses, this is a video of a Hummer waiting in line at a gas station when a woman in a Grand Cherokee, fed up with the line, decides to take her road rage off the road and into a service station to cut in line and take the next pump. Aaaaaaaand that's when s... / Continue →

    Some kids learn by reading. Some kids learn by listening. And some kids learn by watching their idiot father drop a firecracker down a manhole and almost lose his head when it ignites all the trapped gas down there and sends the cover flying. But what did they learn -- that'... / Continue →

    Is that a flamethrower in your pocket or is your penis on fire for no reason? This is a flamethrower in the form of a handgun. So it's small. There's a video of the thing failing to melt snow off the top of a grill (try the propane tank!) after the jump, as well as a link to... / Continue →

    Because get-rich-quick schemes have officially hit rock bottom, a man from Northern Ireland was recently arrested after his doodoo-into-gold experiments set his apartment block on fire. Smooth move, Rumpelshitskin. It is thought that as part of the bizarre experiment Moran ... / Continue →

    This is a Wiimote-controlled fire-breathing robot pony being put through its paces (turning head, breathing fire) at the recent Detroit Maker's Faire by its two mohawk'd creators. The pink one clearly stealing the other's thunder aside, there is absolutely no reason why anybod... / Continue →
