Video: Colin Furze, the internet's favourite inventor who always puts awesome first and safety second, has created what certainly looks like the largest man-made fire tornado ever built. Combining two of nature's most destructive forces seems like a good idea, right?

Video: I'm not going to call these guys total idiots because if I had access to big fireworks, an empty street and a camera, there's a non-zero chance that I too would light those fireworks up, blast my friend in an awesomely stupid fireworks fight and record the whole damn thing so that other people could call me an idiot. This wild, Harry Potter-like fight filled with colourful explosions happened in China during Chinese New Year.
Hot damn. This 260kg firework basically fills the entire night's sky with explosions so ridiculously huge and, like, everywhere that it's almost unbelievable. One second you're just watching normal fireworks go off, and then the next, you're being blinded with the most insane 5-second light show your eyes will probably ever see.
Today is New Year's Eve, so it's time top celebrate — and the best way to do that is by lighting-up a sparkler and holding a little bit of fire in your own two hands. But what's in that sparkler that burns so bright? That would be the eternal flame of freedom. (Also incredibly hot-burning chemicals.)
Over 60 people have been injured after an explosion occurred at the San Pablito fireworks market in Tultepec, Mexico, a city north of Mexico City. The blast is especially terrifying because the thick smoke plume covers the entire market while fireworks were still catching fire and going off in every direction. Nearby homes were also damaged in the explosions and the scene remains dangerous, according to National Civil Protection Coordinator Luis Felipe Puente.
Video: Peering at the world through a close-up macro lens reveals tiny details that normally go unnoticed. It can also make the smallest of things appear completely grandiose. Steel wool and a battery makes for an easy way to start a fire, but zoom in as it burns and it looks like the entire world has become engulfed in a raging firestorm.
Video: Every year around July 4 (surprise, surprise) the US Consumer Product Safety Commission puts on a graphic demonstration of why you should be really careful when setting off fireworks. The video of the demo arrived late this year, but if you're a fan of horror movies, it was still totally worth the wait.
