Torching Gatorade With A Flamethrower Creates Colourful Mini Fountains

Who knew that Gatorade, an elixir of life, would be such a fun thing to blast a flamethrower at? Turns out because the plastic bottle shrinks while the cap disintegrates (since there’s no liquid in it), the delicious hangover-curing fluid starts spewing all over the place. Science experiments that involve flamethrowers are fun.


Can The Indestructible Hockey Puck Survive The Endless Fire Of Thermite?

The strongest material on Earth, fictional substances included, is a hockey puck. It’s true. After surviving against the red hot nickel ball and going toe to toe with liquid nitrogen, it totally edges out adamantium and whatever T-1000 was made out of. Here’s another battle that it holds up admirably to: thermite, which is basically fire transported in from Mordor.


Scientists Have Figured Out The Perfect Way To Build A Fire

Grab your s’mores fixin’s because a professor of mechanical engineering at Duke University believes he figured out how to build and engineer the perfect fire that burns with the maximum amount of heat as possible.


What Happens When You Pour Water On An Oil Fire In Slow-Motion

Video: Really bad things happen. Although everyone should know this, here’s a lovely slow-motion video reminder on what happens when you pour water onto an oil fire in an attempt to put it out: the fire gets even crazier, because the water vaporises into steam, which expands causing it to spit out the oil, which makes the flames even bigger.


How To Build The Only Five Campfires You'll Ever Need

The most fundamental outdoor skill is also often one of the most misunderstood. Learn these five campfires and you’ll be able to cook food, scare off wild animals, stay warm or just have a bonfire on the beach. They’re simple, but everyone can probably learn something here.


Watch Two Maniacs Ride A Motorcycle Through A 120m Fire Hell Tunnel

I found the entrance to hell and it’s this 120m long tunnel of fire. When Enrico Schoeman and André de Kock hop on their motorcycle and burn through the tunnel, it looks like they’re on the surface of the sun. The tunnel reaches temperatures of 480C and you can’t even see where you’re going when you’re inside.


Getting Slapped With A Hand Of Fire In Slow Motion Is Spectacular

Video: There are a lot of cool things you can see in slow motion, but few might be as satisfying as watching a hand on fire slapping a guy in the face. The face gets smushed in all kinds of ways with spit flying everywhere while the flames dance around all over the guy’s face and stays there a frighteningly few seconds too long.


Video: Inside The Fiery Inferno Of A Rocket Launch

Here’s an awesome view of the fiery power that is a rocket. A GoPro camera is strapped inside this rocket test so that rocket scientists can get a view of what’s going on inside. It’s pretty amazing, the fire burns so hot that you can almost feel it through the screen.


Who Wins When A Fire Hose And A Flamethrower Shoot At Each Other?

Rock, paper, scissors. Paper beats rock, rock beats scissors, scissor beats paper. How do those holiest of rules apply to fire and water? Well, let’s blast a water hose at a flamethrower while the flamethrower is firing off at the water hose to find out. Guess who’s the winner?


This Timelapse Of The Sun Is Just Jaw Dropping

Michael König’s Sun is a spectacular timelapse compilation of our star from the Solar Dynamics Observatory from 2011 to 2015. It includes fantastic clips of solar activity, coronal rain, plasma eruptions, planet flybys, eclipses and more in jaw dropping clarity that you feel like it’s alive, in an omnipotent God-like burning orb sort of way.
