    I made one of those with my friend for Science fair one time. It could go much faster, but that`s because there was a lot more pressure in a smaller space.

    30 meters is about 98 feet. The candle didn`t go out. The sub shops one was blowing out candles at well over 120 feet. I call this one lame. It may be bigger, but bigger isn`t always better.

    ^^^ Agreed. 21m is just under 69 feet. The sub shop one blew out candles at 180 feet and generated much faster air movement in the process. This one completely fails.

    Giant smoke rings are still FTW, but epic fail for trying to blow out the candle.

    ^ I was thinking the exact same thing.

    I was kind of hoping Godzilla would drop by and grab his Rubber Johnny. We don`t need more of those things running around.

    THE WIND DID NOT PUT IT OUT it was whatever gas was used to create the effect (probably CO2 in dry ice form, condensing the water vapor in the air, and putting out the candle)

    but at least it looked cool

    Interesting how the American way is to be as powerful as possible and the Japanese way is to get a candle as close as possible without it going out.
