Read what fire tornadoes are and have done.

Please note, if you burn down your house creating one, DU takes no responsibility for your actions. In fact, this post was a figment of your psychotic, pyromaniacical imagination.

    “Bored By Fireworks? Make Your Own 4th of July Fire Tornado!”… but be very careful. Do not watch your fire tornado for more than 5 minutes or there is a real danger of actually dying from boredom.

  2. Look at the guy’s impish smile
    “Record player does not play records anymore but fine for this purpose”
    “For adults only”
    ( what kinds of adults – i know of one adult who while drinking Vodka in the North End of Winnipeg” reduced a perfectly new and bank vault dust free computer to stick sticks of ram only , cleaning the computer while running with a can of air )
    Reminds me of the parable of the two Jewish businessmen who meet every winter at Miami Beach and review the past year
    The punch line is “Sam something is bothering me how did you make the Mississippi River flood.
    The device is perfect for long weekend lightening
    I wonder what the arson squad will think of the device and if they track it back to this video
    Who knows how many adults in the world had fun making the toy

    Meh, maybe if it were bigger & faster. I am thinking industrial induction motors and the rims off a Peterbilt. And remember, it’s not really a party until someone gets naked or loses an eye.

    My brother in laws brother had a 52 inch fan…I wonder if he still has it…

  5. bbjester says:

    That’s the spirit deowll! A 52″ fan would be even better. Extra points for lighting it with a Roman Candle. Just be sure to have your insurance card ready for the ER and you are good to go. And if Gene Simmons comes to your house and breathes fire while surrounded by belly dancers too. Well, then you my friend have just achieved legendary status.

    (And for those who don’t understand what I am talking about. Just watch Animal House, Bachelor Party, and PCU. That should get you up to speed in fairly short order.)

    This is interesting or exciting???

    Not even a close 4th or 5th place to a dozen small firecrackers, let alone 4 or 5 M-80s.

    What am I missing?

    I’ve had more fun nuking CD’s in a microwave for 5 seconds.

    Rise up, gather round’ burn that stack of Def Leppard albums to the ground.

    Drivin’ round dropped a roach, hope my knickers don’t go up in smoke…Rock On…Rock On…Sumthin, Sumthin, Pyromania…No fire brigade, no TSA, just the Pyromania…

    (Oh Yeah! And this just happened while I am still sober…)

    While nuking a CD in the microwave is kind of like a twinkler and cute in it’s own right if you have a lot of old CDs you want to get rid off just stick a stick in the ground and stack them up, a little lighter flue and a twist off paper and those suckers will burn. Best enjoyed after full dark. The fumes are most likely mildly toxic so stay up wind.
