"On the 6th floor of a condo I was working at. I checked all the floors, and they're all like this."

"Disconcerting" is the word we're looking for here...

Instructables user PDRWLSN created this pocket-sized flame thrower not because it's freaking awesome, but to as a way to start a quick fire when you're camping and only have access to wet wood. The gun uses materials readily available at any hardware store with butane lighter fluid as a fuel source and a BBQ ignition switch as a trigger. Below is a video showing the machine failing to melt snow. If any of you are crazy enough to try this, please, be safe.

"Spotted in a parking lot of the Goodwill store. The driver who walked up a minute after I took the photo had coarse hair that looked like it had been coated in a cracked burned substance. Either fire or aerosol spray foam seems to be a repeating theme."

Hey, don't judge now! Ladies love dudes with minivans that have had close encounters with volcanoes... right?

Wanted hot water, but had unpleasant company downstairs. So I decided to heat it using what I had in my room at the time.
