    Give it enough oxygen, and you can burn just about anything. This was much more complicated than it needed to be.

    Yes, Oxygen burns. Yes, fire is hot. Yes, hot is the condition required to melt things. So what the hell is the bacon for? Decoration.

    @SnaveNareik, oxygen by itself won`t burn. You need some combustible material to burn with oxygen. Bacon has a lot of fat which, like any kind of oil, has contains chemical energy. It releases that energy when it burns and combines with oxygen. Pure oxygen makes this go much easier, faster, and hotter than regular air which is only about 20% oxygen.

    This is no Bacon Death Lance, it`s just a crummy old Prosciutto Death Lance. I`m disappointed now.

    What was actually causing the metal to melt was the fact that it was being burned with pure oxygen, although the bacon did help initially by heating the steel up to the point where it would burn.
    Still pretty neat though

    Wouldn`t it just be the oxygen making the flame? The bacon didn`t seem to actually burn... this is an awesome lance.
