Look How Fire Gracefully Slides And Dances Down This Bottle

Here’s the classic science experiment of mixing fire and alcohol in a large empty jug. It’s always fun to see the perfect layer of flames slowly dance its way down the cylinder, like a slow drip of fire as the alcoholic vapors combust. Of course, the best part is that ‘whoosh’ sound it makes.

Melting A Lock With A Torch Is A Great Way To Break It Open

Video: Locks are meant to be broken. Torches are meant to wield fire. So it makes total sense to use a torch to melt the hell out of a lock to bust it open, right? Exactly!
