It just isn`t possible. water can`t burn, water is a god damn product of something burning, hydrogen and oxygen burning CREATES water in gas form.
it`s so sad seeing so many people who think they know what`s going on, when in fact they don`t have a damn clue what they are talking about.
no, but if i poured boiling water on you it would be burning...your skin
That said, I could be wrong. I haven`t tried this myself, so I don`t have enough direct evidence to back my theory up. From the science I know and have seen myself though, I find this highly implausible.
Then why did you even post? If you don’t have the time OR feel like reading everyone else’s, then don’t assume for a moment that everyone else has time or feels like reading yours, especially when your message has no substance, being previously stated several times before.
Maybe when you graduate from Reading Class, you will then have time AND you will feel like reading.
Reading is fundamental.

There you go being contradictory, just as I predicted.
I thought it was a way to remove hair from legs, and if you combine that with salt water it`s painful.
There are two batteries in the water for 40 minutes (for better results wait longer, and make sure the batteries are new.) Because water conducts electricity and the batteries are electrical a reaction happens causing the hydrogen to become separated from the oxygen.
Since both hydrogen (which is highly flammable) and Oxygen (a fuel) are both gases they simply float away.
However, since the glass is shaped the way it is, some of the gas is trapped inside of the glass. Thus, when you light the match there is fire. Unfortunately you are not technically setting water on fire. You are just making a reaction that allows you to burn hydrogen above water. (which is clearly visible in the video.)
his man clearly owns an alcohol dispensing fridge. i gotta get me a fridge like that.
i mean if you boil water and stick your finger in it you probably yell "ahhh! that burns!!!"
then i saw the vid and wished it had been some idiot dipping his fingers in boiling water beacause at least it`s not something completely fake.
oh, and a big thumbs up to patriotpappy. way to completely screw someone up.
And when you don`t repost, it will be because you don`t want everyone to know that you did exactly what I said you would do.
Hahahah! Pure brilliance :-D! Probably sweating bullets knowing he is screwed either way ^_^.

I didn`t realize you were such a slow reader that it would take you all day to read through 2 pages.
But you found time to revisit the thread that you had already read to see if anyone had responded to your earlier post? Now you`re contradicting yourself.
And you will contradict yourself again when you find the time to revisit and reply to this post.
Only about 10 times, you twat. I know it`s a challenge, but try reading the previous posts before you write.
It`s educational and fun!

dangit bob, ya beat me too it....it scalds. not burns.
So, FAKE! You can tell it`s alcohol burning by the blue flame. Yes, it`s yellow/orange at the top, but at the surface, it`s blue and nearly invisible. Burn some rubbing alcohol. Same look.
Yes, boiling water burns. Real bad, too. As in blisters time.
Water takes over 40 Kilojoules per mole to change it`s phase from liquid to gas
So basically when water puts a fire out it is taking more energy away when it changes to steam than the fire can produce.
Burning is extreamly fast oxidation. Its like rust but in a much shorter amount of time
I`m pretty sure Electrolysis is a way to plate metals. Works best with salt water really.
really thinking abut it though water itself is confusing, hydrogen alone is flammable and oxygen is as well, so combining the two should make an extremely volatile explosive, but thanks to some odd twist of physics it actually puts out fire instead of combusting into a horrible mess... freaking backward liquid.
anywho... off to try it!"
Look at table salt.It`s sodium and Chlorineboth when alone are extreamly unstable.but together it make salt that you put on your food and eat!
It`s educational and fun!
Also, sticking your hand in boiling water isn`t a burn, it`s a scald.
For hydrocarbon fuels:
Fuel + Oxygen + (heat) --> Carbon Dioxide + Water + (energy)
E.g. CH4 + 2.O2 --> CO2+ 2.H20
For carbon only fuels
Carbon + Oxygen --> Carbon Dioxide.
C + O2 --> CO2
if you get rid of the C or the CH4, burning cannot occur.
Burning is the common name for a combustion reaction, two examples of which are displayed above. A burn as a medical term is something entirely different.
H20 is -NOT- capable of burning. O2, sure. H2, sure. NOT WATER. Water is the *product* of a combustion reaction (burning).
It is possible if he was using damaged batteries that some of the battery acid escaped the casing and being lighter than water settled on top of the water layer. Battery acid is flammable so the top layer could have been lit. If this is how it was done, I suggest you don`t try it as the fumes could be toxic.
It is also possible that the liquid was substituted for flammable liquid.
Electrolysis has nothing to do with it as any hydrogen gas released would float away from the cup, nor would it light this way.
And if its not the hydrogen that burns, the batteries have something which disolves in the water, or floats to the top like most oils.
If its not one of those, it`s fake imo.
Now you just burn the hydrogen in the water.Basic chemistry guys....
i`d say thats pretty LAME
Here`s a trick to make water burn:
Add a smidgen of gasoline or oil. Shh! Don`t tell!
LIKE i can make water turn into wine.
"Beaker full of water add a mystery chemical wait 10 minutes and look at water woohoo WINE!!!!!one!!!111"
if you don`t believe me go ahead and try it yourself.
stick your finger in that boiling water and see if it burns.
anywho... off to try it!
I was like "well of course water can burn, hence boiling water!"
That`s how I get my water to burn.
The guy obviously changes the liquid in the so called `30 Minute` Break.
