    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 →

    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 Youtuber COOP3RDRUMM3R covering Ellie Goulding's 'Burn' (appropriate) with flaming drumsticks. He warns everyone not to try it themselves, but I've already got my drumsticks soaking in kerosene. I'm gonna sprinkle my symbols with gunpowder too for EXTRA EFFECT. I wan... / 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 →

    In much more exciting fire news, these are two videos of amateur Russian stuntman Alexander Chernikov being set on fire and leaping off the roof of a five-story apartment complex into a snow bank. Which, for the record, there's actually no such thing as amateur stuntmen, only... / Continue →

    This is the crystal ball that was sitting in a window sill that refracted a ray of sunlight AND set a home's curtains on fire. Or was it the work of the sorceress trapped inside? "It was probably just the ball." Sure, but it COULD have been the sorceress. Mick Boyle, fire... / Continue →

    In a heroic act of idiot bravery, a Kansas man returned to his burning home to save his XBox. No word if the rest of his family survived. Also, there's no mention in the article whether it was an XBox One or 360. Would you risk your life for a previous generation console? ... / Continue →

    Ninety cows busting serious ass in a cow shed in Germany caused the shed to explode after a static discharge ignited the methane gas, starting a fire that damaged the roof and caused one cow to require treatment for a burn. When reached for comment, every single cow vehemently... / 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 →

    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 →

    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 →

    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 a video of Traddino, a 51-foot, 11-ton, walking, fire-breathing dragon robot that was just named the new Guinness World Record Holder for "world's largest walking robot". The winner before that? Who cares. All I know is it looks like that thing is about to crispy-fry... / Continue →

    Batman and Captain America (who one firefighter sadly mistook for Robin) were teaching positive life lessons to a group of children at their local American Legion post in Milton, West Virginia, when Batman noticed a nearby house fire. So they two sprung into action, breaking a... / Continue →

    The title says it all. Whatever the title doesn't say is best kept a secret between you and I. You do know what I'm talking about, right? That thing I told you the other day that I made you promise you wouldn't tell anybody else? You still haven't told anybody, right? Good... / Continue →

    Jesus, Optimus, WTF did you eat?! Note: Turn the volume down on your speakers, this thing sounds like a tornado. This is a video of a jet-powered rocket truck unleashing what can only be described as the gates of hell before blasting off to 210MPH. I felt the heat THROUGH MY... / Continue →

    This is a video of an Ammonium dichromate volcano erupting with a couple mercury thiocyanate tablets hidden inside. Mercury thiocyanate is commonly sold as those "Pharoah's snake" fireworks. So between the volcano erupting and those tentacles spilling out it looks like the Kr... / Continue →

    This is a video of a brick oven full of 2,538 ping pong balls being lit. The flame burns so hard and tall because ping pong balls are made out of celluloid, a highly flammable plastic. Mmmm, I love the smell of burning ping pong balls in the morning. Smells like...burning pl... / Continue →

    This is a video of glassblower and skateboarder Robert G. Burch riding his skateboard through a puddle of molten glass. Why? Presumably to combine his two passions in life. Like me when I'm laying down AND playing video games. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →
