    That is friggin` awesome. It looks like the water comes out with no real interference from the fire.

    I`d shower with the lights off too, so I could better enjoy the fireball I ignited as it exploded from the showerhead over and over again.

    Except this story happened a few weeks ago here in Colorado, lol.


    and you could drink the water safely, the gas was just in the pipping of the water so if you held a flame to the faucet it would ignite briefly but be put out a second or two later as the water rushed over the flames.

    It was neat, but nothing too big. Not like any huge explosions and flamethrower-like faucets.

    Glad to see IAB is so tolerant of other, more correct opinions. You know, there was probably also water in that water. Its not as dangerous as you think it is, otherwise we would have seen a lot more when the man lit it.

    "I was eating a slice of pie and accidently dopped some on the carpet, at that moment i realised my dream home had suddenly became a nightmare"

    Id have a massive grin on my face knowing i could get some compensation out of it, hell id light my kitchen on fire, maybe even throw little jimmy in there, "injurylawers4u" would have a field day.

That fateful day my world turned upside down, my life became a grim nightmare, I lost all hope in humanity... I sank into a great depression and tried to suicide twice. Because, you know, this is the worst that could happen ever! *cries wildly*

    If the gas is flammable, it`s not absorbed in the water--which means if you were to pour some into a glass, the gas would immediately float away leaving only (clean, drinkable) water behind.

    I was just about to mention that, bit offputting but the water would be totally fine. You can even see the gas is above the tap when it goes on fire.

    "If the gas is flammable, it`s not absorbed in the water--which means if you were to pour some into a glass, the gas would immediately float away leaving only (clean, drinkable) water behind."

    Um, I`m pretty sure they are talking about gas as in gasoline, as in what you put in your car. Even if it was gas as in the state of matter,that `gas` could be heavier than air, thus it would not just float away.

    Norsak, no, in order to continue burning there would need to be a supply of oxygen, and in the faucet there just isn`t enough, so it would burn out right at the nozzle most likely. Plus there is a special pipe to keep gases from flowing through the system in either direction.

    Uhhhh...no. Gasoline (what we fill our cars with) is a liquid. Natural Gas is just that...a gas or vapor. Let me put it in terms you understand...when you fart, that smell is methane...a natural gas!

    Yeah which dumbass said that? Water contains proper gassy gas in it. That`s why if u drink boiled water it tastes flatter

    And thats how fish breathe, they don`t break down the h20, they used the oxygen that`s "dissolved" in the water

    to who ever said this:

    If you`re bored one day, take a glass of water and stir it fast enough until you see air bubbles. Then put the glass in the freezer for a day. When you take it out look at all the air (gas) trapped inside the ice. To make a long lecture short, water can dilute 20 cc of air per cubic inch. (or something close)
