Flame Throwing at 2500 FPS [Video]

Combine an ultra-slow motion camera, a flaming pan of a gasoline, and a blatant disregard for personal safety, and you’ve got the makings of an awesome slow-motion video.

It goes without saying, don’t try this at home kids.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I don’t think that is gasoline in the pan. It would have exploded when lit. Must be kerosene or diesel.

    These two performers just show their ignornace or foolhardiness.
    First, gasoline can (but not always) ignite from static if poured from a plastic container without bonding to the receiving pan.
    Second, we all know that plastic hoses tend to kink and stop the flow, so if you want to prepare to put out a fire you lay the hose out without loops.
    Third, lab coats are not good for playing with fire, like kids nighties, they provide a flame path that can seriously burn the wearer. Apparently these guys are also not good at repairing torn coats.
