Amazing, but with that gasoline, if the flame had gone up, the whole can would of exploded!

I agree with #2. That was immensely irresponsible. The can could have very easily exploded, covering the dickhead and the cameraman with burning petrol. Stupid. :|

Not sure if cooking an egg on porous concrete that you've had chemicals and molten metal on is a good idea.

#1 Yup! Solar powered grill! Only if that surface (#7 was clean ;) ) could absorb enough heat, reserve it and spread it evenly.. I think that could be a nice idea :P

Wen I dismantled my old laptop I kept two pieces I thought looked cool. One of them was a layer of the screen and it looked exactly like that!
Maybe I should go out and test it! (famous last words) 8-)

That's what people get for watching too much TV, only in slow motion.

#2 Unless it was in a Michael Bay movie, the gasoline can would have not exploded.

Anyone else calling fake on this. It melts glass but doesn't cook an egg straight away cause the egg is to reflective . (the glass though that doesn't reflect the light or allow it pass through it. And its burning wood and metal pretty quickly but he lets his little kid eat off the concrete right next to it with a spoon. Call me a cynic but...

Isn't it illegal to destroy money? Maybe they were old coins or something else.
