Christmas! FUCK YEAH !
You can do the same thing with a real Xmas tree a few weeks after the holidays…
Without tamping it’s mostly flash and no punch, but what a nice flash it is, and it certainly does a great job demonstrating how det cord can “cut” objects when wrapped around them.
I want to see this man do a menorah… heh. heheheh… Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! BOOM!
This is a celebration of Festivus (for the rest of us).
No kidding. I was shocked at the slow motion video and how it showed how much flame there is. At real time speed it happens so fast it looks like just a quick puff.
Thank you for mah new christmas card image…
I knew det cord was fast, but a burn rate of 4 miles a second is beyond fast.
That’s no way to treat a perfectly good Festivus pole.
That was awesome.
It’s fast because it doesn’t burn - it detonates. There is a definite (and Quite Interesting) difference between deflagration and detonation. The short version is that “burning” happens slower than the speed of sound, and detonation happens faster than sound (which causes a proper shock wave). In the slow-mo shots, you can actually see the shock wave (that blurry bit that looks like heat shimmer) emanating from the cord as it detonates.
Hot damn! Needs GIF.
charizard use firespin!
A neighbour of mine once attempted to dispose of his six foot tree by slowly feeding it into his living room fireplace.
love the footage and tree design. no ornaments!
A good pine tree in the open hearth is fun for everyone! Soots the flue, but damn those things go up quickly.
