    Another trick is to throw flower on it, that is what we did on more than one occasion.

    In case of a fire remember to sing "BAKING SODA, I GOT BAKING SODA" because baking soda will put out the fire more safely than water.

    I wish they'd try recording the crack of a whip. I think Tested tried it, but they ended with "we can't prove it's there, but it seems like it should be."

    Wow, good thing Dan was behind a table and had the face mask on!

    If you have the lid to the pan you can put that on as well to smother the fire.

    Other great ways to put out the fire is to pour baking soda on it or (if you are able to) place it in the oven. the oven is basically one big hot box and eventually it will go out in there and be away from harming others. My sister used to work in a burn unit and saw many people who ended up scarred for life because they did not know how to properly put it out. Stay safe guys!

    After watching this I was put in the mood for watching cool, interesting science-y videos on YouTube; end up watching Red Hot Nickel Ball videos for over an hour, goddammit.

    I thought Dan was going to pour the water while wearing those shorts, and I was convinced he was gonna die xD Luckily, there was a table.

    A lid, cutting off the air supply, can be the safest way to put out an oil fire. but AWESOME video. TERRIFYING video.

    That fire looked amazing... It was so intricate and detailed... And the wind made it look like A FREAKIN' DRAGON'S BREATH. Moral of the story, do this if you want to make the most dangerous dragon cosplay in the world...

    It's really cool that you can see individual water droplets boil away as they are propelled through the air. It also makes me want to watch the movie Sunshine again.

    Great job getting the propane out of the way, but what about the other flammable item placed by the table that you are using as a shield?

    Using a lid or baking soda works better than a wet towel... but the point was there.

    also on another note, sometimes I'm amazed these two are still alive.

    No one ever explains or shows why you should not do this - only that you should not.
