    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 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 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 →
