Man Tests Insulating Foam With Blowtorch To Hand

February 2, 2012



Seen here about to do his best Human Torch, a man prepares to demonstrate the incredible insulating properties of the magical foamy goop he's developed, using a 7,000-degree flame. Then, after his hand amazingly doesn't melt off, he eats some of the stuff. So I guess it's non-toxic. That or he's already absorbed enough of the toxins that he's immune to them. Ooooooor he's a crazy person. Shit, I'd eat another handful of asbestos for $100.

Hit the jump for the please line my belly with that stuff and start pouring down the hot sauce!

Scientist Tests Super Insulating Foam By taking a welding torch to his hand and then eating it! [reddit]

Thanks to Khisk, who agrees there's no product demonstration more convincing than risking serious bodily injury.

    Anybody remember in the 90's when some british guy invented this stuff exactly like this that he called 'starlite'? That survived a nuclear blast? Yeah, that stuff disappeared pretty quick...

    I do wonder if they'll also be recipes for this very practical foam? Insulating foam nachos anyone?

    you know that shit tastes nasty.

  • I'm pretty sure it's just melted Twinkies.

  • how did they melt it in the first place then?

  • rockerhud

    Of course it's edible. Isn't that the stuff they use to make Chicken McNuggets?

  • I wonder how many people wanted to try this to see what it taste like... can you say fireproof mouth?

  • But does it taste as good without cooking it?

  • That old man is a boss!
