The red hot nickel ball has destroyed many foes, but it seems to have met its match ... in molasses.
Wile E. Coyote always used matches to light his ACME rockets. He wasted a lot of money. Turns out, you can cut out the middleman and use matches to make your own tiny rockets. Just don't try to ride them.
Yesterday, a huge fire destroyed the Internet Archive’s San Francisco scanning center, which digitally preserves all manner of books, films and microfilms for future use.
Seeing things that shouldn't be burned get melted down to nothing by fire is weirdly titillating. You don't even have to be a pyromaniac to enjoy the perversion of the flames. Just look at how this tooth slowly disappears! It's gross and weirdly wonderful in all the right ways. So bless the master torch wielders of Cars and Water for taking a tooth from their childhood and blasting it with a hydrogen/oxygen flame. I thought I would never know how a tooth burns. Now I'll never smile the same again.
Red hot nickel ball of fire meet your toughest opponent yet: aerogel. In fact, aerogel is such an amazing material and excellent insulator that the eternal flame of the nickel ball does absolutely nothing to it. Like, seriously. It affects the aerogel as much as the normal air around it (or in it too?). But hey. We’re in the business of seeing destruction and in order to destroy aerogel, the nickel ball brought in reinforcements in the form of an hydrogen and oxygen flame. Everything burns eventually.

This isn’t the motorcycle you need. It’s the motorcycle you deserve. You’ll be able to conquer Bane and the morning rush hour commute aboard this insane Harley V-Rod mod. And yes, those are dual flamethrowers and shotguns up front.
When you’re heading out into nature with nothing but a backpack, the long hike ahead of you is going to be far more enjoyable if you pack as light and minimally as possible. But that doesn’t mean you have to completely rough it. A hot meal at the end of the day can keep a camping trip tolerable, and you’ll be hard pressed to feel this collapsible camp stove weighing you down.
There’s nothing quite like the destructive beauty of fire. And that crimson chemical reaction is even better in slow motion.
The dancing orange wisps of fire looks like choreographed chaos when seen in slow motion. It dances, it burns, it shines and it’s easy to get lost in it. But seeing burning fire is a lot different than actually holding it. The guys from Beyond Slow Motion used a nice little trick that never gets old to sprout fire from their bare hands. In slow motion.
