If you were a fan of the Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, or Avatar growing up, you probably wished at some point in your life that you could hold fire in your hands without getting hurt. Well, luckily for you, now there’s a way. Well, technically there always was a way, but you probably just weren’t aware of it.
Thanks to science and one of our favorite experimenters Taras Kul, your dreams of manipulating fire in the palm of your hand can now become reality. In the video below, he shows you exactly how to replicate his experiment, but PLEASE make sure to be careful if you decide to try this at home. Fire is NOT a toy.
For start, you’ll need a bucket full of water. Mix in some soap and spread it around with either your finger or some other device if you don’t feel like having one finger be cleaner than the others.
Now comes the secret ingredient – butane. Take your spray can of butane and turn it upside down, submerging it in the water. When you spray the butane, it should come out in the form of bubbles. Now a combination of soap, butane, and water, the mixture is now pretty darn flammable. So flammable that you can light it on fire without it even burning your hands.
Check it out below, and remember if you’re gonna try this at home, BE CAREFUL. In fact, you probably shouldn’t be trying this at home at all. Either way, enjoy!
