    It went on kinda long, and they could`ve lowered the music while he was explaining which steel wool pads to use, but still looks pretty impressive; just be sure to stand VERY far away from anything and anyone. The middle of a parking lot or desert should be fine.

    I don`t think you could set anything on fire by doing that, the sparks just dissipate too quickly and aren`t actually burning anything (with a fire, little chunks fly off. With this, nothing comes off, just sparks).

    3 of the best quotes ever.

    1)"Ow it burned me".
    eeehh...what did you expect.

    2)"just use a little bit of lighter fluid and it will be fine".
    and if you really want to burn it up get some liquid methane.

    3)"The large coarse ones are too compact".
    yeah there not very good for killing yourself.

    I once took some steel wool, lit it, and dipped it into a Snapple bottle filled with oxygen. It burned so brightly that no one could look at it directly and the bottle had to be filled with water at the bottom to absorb the heat or else it would shatter. one trick to get it to burn brightly is to stretch and fray the steel wool to get more surface area, so that even thicker steel wool will give a nice burn. Oh yeah, and it`s kinda dangerous, so don`t do it outside a lab--not that anyone would actually listen to that. Now it`s time to throw some chunks of sodium or potassium into a bathtub!

    Cool effect, but what the hell is with the music? These guys must be GAY if they used this song. Most people like this song just because it was on The Wedding Singer, but the truth is, this song really is extremely gay. it was written and performed by a fag, to be played in fag clubs. Most people dont know that. Everyone on here who is not gay and likes this song because it was on The Wedding Singer is ignorant.

    I learned about this from girls scouts... we used a 9-volt battery to light it and then put some kindling/tinder around it and *poof* that was our fire for the night.
    so yes, burning steel wool can light other things on fire.

    love it. I`ve known about the steel wool thing for a while though... we used to muck about with it in chemistry... and magnesium and anything else we could find to dump on the bunsen burners... good times...

    The first song is called you spin me(right round) or something like that. the second song is `ring of fire` by johnny cash

    trick from when i was a boy scout, if you dont have a lighter just take a 9v batter and put the terminals on the wool, the electricity goes the the wool it hates up because its so stringy and skinny it can`t dissipate the heat, and will ignite, it was soposed to be used to help start camp fires, we used lit the crap and threw it into the shower stalls. :)
