Dangerous: Colin Furze's Homemade Thermite Launcher

April 4, 2016


This is a video of Colin Furze demonstrating his homemade thermite launcher. Don't know what thermite is? Let me copy/paste something for you while I yell at my coworker to stop drumming on his desk: "[Thermite is] an especially nasty chemical composition made of metal power and oxide that burns as hot as 2,500 degrees Celsius." Damn, 2,500 degrees Celsius? That is hot. For reference, a witch's nips are -2,500 degrees Celsius. The other end of the spectrum. I wouldn't want to touch either. I'm lying to myself, I dream about touching witch nips all day every day. I'm daydreaming about them now. And now. "And now?" Yep. I've got witch nips on the brain. Just kidding, it's an inoperable tumor I've got five seconds to live somebody destroy my computer and take care of my dog byeeeeeeee.

Keep going for the video, as well as a video of the build and how to make thermite rounds because we're all going to try this at home.

Thanks to Joseph A, who agrees fun and danger go hand in hand like best friends skipping through the park.

    Hope he knows he can melt steel beams with that, keep this guy away from tall buildings

  • Bling Nye

    WOW is that guy annoying.

  • archer923

    I'd love to see this in Fallout and Overwatch.

  • How is he not dead yet?

  • GeneralDisorder

    He's more careful than he looks. Granted that fireworks batch ignited by thermite launcher is pretty close. He may have burned himself a little there.

  • Jeedai Infidel

    Science has decided that he lives... for now.

  • Pong Sirioput

    Someone should mod this into Fallout 4.

  • He should be an NPC in fallout 4.
