Why fighting wildfires makes wildfires even crazier and harder to fight

Here’s an interesting argument from MinuteEarth saying that we should stop fighting wildfires so vigilantly because we’re actually making wildfires even worse and harder to stop. Why? Because by stopping fires it allows trees to grow closer to each other which makes the forest denser and more flammable and the next… »9/28/15 8:45pm9/28/15 8:45pm

Fire breathing in bullet time looks so completely bad ass

It’s a universal rule that even after all these years, everything looks cooler in bullet time. Time stops! Perspectives get reversed! And when this dude is breathing fire in bullet time, it looks like a maniacal orange fiery beast is being excised from the guy’s body. It’s a really bad ass look. »9/22/15 5:55pm9/22/15 5:55pm

Driving through a fire looks like going through hell

This is crazy. A fire broke out in Lake County, California and devastated nearly 95 square miles. One elderly woman was killed, 13,000 people have been displaced and hundreds of home are now gone. It’s a total tragedy. Here is footage from inside the fire and it burns so hot it’s really unbelievable to see. »9/14/15 10:30pm9/14/15 10:30pm

Crazy man drives a car over a fiery ramp that jumps straight into a lake

I don’t know if a car stunt can get any crazier than this. Car on fire? Check. Man jumping out of the car on fire? Check. Car plunging into a lake while the man is jumping out of the car on fire?

A bomb of matchstick heads exploding in slow motion is like fire rain

What happens when you light 6,000 matchstick heads (that is only the tip of the match)? Basically a huge fire bomb explosion that looks like it’s raining fire. The match heads all ignite and burst a super tall flame in the air and then the match heads start flying everywhere and when it falls to the ground, it looks… »8/23/15 9:00am8/23/15 9:00am

Amazon Yells, "Look Over There! $69 Fire Tablets!"

Whether this deal had already been planned, or is meant to distract from Amazon’s interesting weekend, I don’t know. What I do know is that $69 is the cheapest price they’ve ever offered on a Fire HD tablet, and a hell of a deal for anyone who could use an extra screen in their arsenal.… »8/17/15 9:05am8/17/15 9:05am

Carving candles to expose hidden designs is absolutely beautiful

Carving decorative candles is such an exquisite art because not only does the end result look great but the whole process requires a lot of planning to get the right mix of colors and demands a lot from the artist, because there’s a time limit as the candle hardens throughout the carving process. Here’s a few videos… »8/12/15 1:00am8/12/15 1:00am

Help CA Gov. Jerry Brown Deliver Climate Change Memo To GOP Candidates

The climate is changing and no state has felt this more acutely than drought-plagued California, where 100,000 acres of forest are burning today—including one fire that’s 100 square miles. Today, the state’s governor Jerry Brown asked for help posing a question to Republican leaders: “What is your plan to deal with… »8/05/15 2:45pm8/05/15 2:45pm
