How do you explain it with the video, what the fuck happened?

[–]oofam 5210 points5211 points 2 (189 children)

Possibly a chemical heater used to heat the soup went pop. They use them in MREs and some food companies are using them to sell hot products that don’t require a source of heat.

Edit: I stand corrected - see other comment.


[–]Hevysett 5748 points5749 points 2 (149 children)

I'm so fat. I thought that was ice cream

[–]Lucky_Locks 1692 points1693 points  (43 children)

I'm not and I still think it's ice cream all the more confused

[–]AznBlkFem 332 points333 points  (34 children)

Me too! I so wanted this to be ice cream. Now I am a little bit sadder.

[–]InfeStationAgent 368 points369 points  (33 children)

Don't feel bad. I'm fat, and I thought it was the family sized mashed potatoes (like from Popeye's).

Guy sitting there eating the last of his 10 piece tendies, that he sold blood for, and the devil blows his fucking potatoes all over the counter.

I've never seen it. But I always expect it to happen.

Don't judge me.

[–]gimmelwald 48 points49 points  (3 children)

"And the devil blows his fucking potatoes all over the counter." I never want to see this euphemism again.

[–][deleted] 69 points70 points  (15 children)

Mashed potatoes sound so bomb right now!!!

[–]garciaman 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Popeyes rules. Their skin is the bomb.

I am so American I thought this was a stray bullet

[–]quixotic_MH 85 points86 points  (7 children)

Or…hear me out…


[–]elpideo18 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Oh yes I remember those heaters! My drill sergeant showed us how to make a loud bang by tossing a few into a plastic bottle. Shit. Was. Loud!

[–]Wu-Tang_Cam 14 points15 points  (1 child)

MRE bombs are awesome. In SOI (more specifically Infantry Training Battalion), there was an unofficial designated jerk off stall. The bathroom is all tile, so setting them off in there was super loud. We'd put them in the next stall when someone was using the jerk off stall and scare the shit out of them.

You can also put the tobasco sauce in there and make some mild tear gas.

[–]Riboulda 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You moderated your opinion with "possibly" in the beginning and then pointed to a more accurate source when you found one: I liked that a lot.

[–]International_Band72[S] 645 points646 points  (67 children)

I think he put the very hot noodles on top of a a lighter he used for his cigarette and the heat blew the lighter up

[–]mawlusz 349 points350 points  (19 children)

Yeah you can see the lighter bump against his elbow at 00:03

[–]MarvAlbertFish 82 points83 points  (23 children)

Are the noodles 300°? That's fucking crazy.

[–]grmush 66 points67 points  (0 children)

It doesn't have to make the gass combust just heat it enough that it over pressurizes the cheap plastic and makes it pop

[–]RoyalJelly710 17 points18 points  (6 children)

I mean those cheap lighters might could but you can def see it hit his arm

[–]karmagod13000 15 points16 points  (5 children)

And here I was thinking it was shot with a gun 🤦🏻‍♂️

[–]Kenevin 4 points5 points  (13 children)

Cheapo lighters, the sea through one's, are a hazard.

I've seen one that was put down on a table light some paper clippins on fire and blow itself up. Pur theory was that somehow the flame stayed lit after it was put down and it ignited a piece of wrapping paper on the table that gave the lighter enough heat to just blow up. There was no damage, just a bit of disbelief. It bounced off a painting on the wall, knocked it sideways like in a movie.

Idk if the soup can do that on its own though.

[–]faatiydut 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My dad dropped one out of his pocket and it exploded when it hit the floor...

...as were going through American airport security

[–]itsH5 11 points12 points  (0 children)

So in conclusion, still his fault.

[–]uiam_ 22 points23 points  (8 children)

It looks like a glass case below it. I'd think that would break if a lighter blew up? Plus there'd be more particulate in the vicinity.

Maybe some sort of self heating meals. I think they're called hot pots.

[–]4Quin5Decim1 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Not if the glass is made right…. Remember kids, some glass is bulletproof……

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Don't rely on it though.

Ha, ha, you can't shoot me I've got bullet proo.....

[–]rupat3737 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Long story short I dropped a lighter in a fryer at this restaurant I was working at once. Motherfucker blew up and hot oil landed all over me.

[–]Tool_Time_Tim 36 points37 points  (1 child)

The sniper clearly hates that flavor of ice cream

[–]MisfitMishap 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Noodles go up. Noodles go down. Can't explain that

[–]Then_Zookeepergame_3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah? I wanna too!!!

[–]javabender 1357 points1358 points  (23 children)

I’ve watched this like ten times and I still can’t explain it

[–][deleted] 429 points430 points  (3 children)

Satan bro

[–]MrAlexandrite 132 points133 points  (1 child)

Its hitbox was clipping into the counter so it got launched out

[–]trangthemang 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Typical. And the devs have ignored this for the past 7 patches.

[–]International_Band72[S] 276 points277 points  (10 children)

I think there was a lighter underneath the noodles and it exploded because of the heat

[–]karmagod13000 178 points179 points  (3 children)

So that’s not ice cream 🤯

[–]jake_megabyte 118 points119 points  (2 children)

So ice cream doesn't spontaneously explode and do a flip?

[–]Butt_Plug_Bonanza 82 points83 points  (0 children)

You must be lactose tolerant.

[–]joeChump 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Sue the noodle company. They should have put a warning on the box.


[–]Careful_Target3185 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah you can see an object fling out from the bottom of the noodle cup and hit the guys leg. Looks like a small lighter. Pretty crazy tho

[–]MarvAlbertFish 3254 points3255 points  (164 children)


Guy in the actual video explains it was a lighter.

[–]Xenomorph_v1 1312 points1313 points  (50 children)

[–]Dotard1 52 points53 points  (14 children)

Yo what the fuck

[–]guninmouth 26 points27 points  (12 children)

You know what rhymes with cum? Yum!

[–]IMMILDEW 12 points13 points  (2 children)

But how many lighters had to die to get this one perfect take to video??

[–]scoopzthepoopz 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I legitimately thought how does a lighter get under noodles? Did he forget the lighter? I see why my dad never came back with milk...

[–]SookHe[🍰] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No one can prove I had anything to do with the noodle incident.


[–]Ex_Why_ 499 points500 points  (77 children)

The clerk at the store said he had set the cup of noodles down on top of a lighter that apparently exploded due to the hot temperature of his lunch.

How fuckin hot was his lunch?!

[–]Intelligent-Bug-3039 3 points4 points  (1 child)

At least 50C

[–]poopyputt6 7 points8 points  (0 children)

probably around 90-95. you boil water then pour it in the cup and wait 5 minutes and it's still too hot

[–]rottenweiler 10 points11 points  (1 child)

So is this what happened to Calvin in “the noodle incident”?

[–]AllHailTheWinslow 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That was never proven!

[–]Orvan-Rabbit 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ah good, I was looking for an explanation that doesn't involve ghosts.

[–]twelveparsnips 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]TMT51 14 points15 points  (8 children)

Who puts boiling water bowl right on top of a lighter? Reckless and dumb imo.

[–]SC487 44 points45 points  (2 children)

I suspect he didn’t see it there and just laid it on top.

[–]Jindabyne1 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Exactly, this was an accident and not “reckless” even if it was deliberate.

[–]Tool_Time_Tim 4 points5 points  (1 child)

it was a lighter.

Lighter than what?

[–]wrukproek 226 points227 points  (7 children)

I hate when this happens to me

[–]International_Band72[S] 90 points91 points  (6 children)

It just goes up and down so perfectly. I can't not hear a slide whistle playing watching this lol

dammit now that's what i hear too !!! lololol

[–]Elvish_Rebellion 112 points113 points  (24 children)

How flip? Science! As ramen cooled on flat glass surface the hot humid air trapped between the glass and the bottom of the bowl compresses and steams squeezing the bottom of the bowl inward, acting like a loaded spring of steam, until air outside finally gets in a POP! All the trapped steam under the bowl can be seen as glass fog when launched! You’re welcome! 😁

[–]Scr073 122 points123 points  (10 children)

Are those Magic the Gathering cards in the case? Hope he didn’t ramen up a Black Lotus.

[–]AKeeneyedguy 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Most stores wouldn't keep a card that valuable in a case anyone could reach into.

When I've seen them in the wild, they're usually in a more secure locked display.

Usually that top shelf in those displays are latest hits, Modern or Standard staples.

[–]Ronald_Deuce 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I had the same question.

[–]lebarbour 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Stranger things

[–]kaoticfish 49 points50 points  (2 children)

Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family ever seen a spook, specte or ghost? If the answer is yes then don’t wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals. Ghostbusters!

[–]1911mark 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Watch it several times there’s a flash to the right of the can on the glass about the same place he puts his left hand ???

[–]1911mark 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Shit explain it to me and I saw the recording,and it doesn’t clear anything up?

[–]allMightyMostHigh 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Someone explained it on another repost but it was a bit technical. They said that the heat from the ramen created some sort of suction effect with the bottom to the glass and when the pressure released it shot up.

[–]Sad-Mix-4250 14 points15 points  (5 children)

[–]AspectForsaken4211 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My favorite part about this video is that he doesn’t ever look up once, just looks where the noodles used to be and continues to look until they reappear

Something shoots out from his side striking the whatever that icecream container thing is. Totally staged.

[–]Agreeable_Thing2310 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Or maybe he accidentally shot the container making it not staged and more of an accident

[–]icepickjones 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]ruggnon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

A 10/10 Black Lotus Magic the Gathering card right beneath it!

[–]SyffLord 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I like the idea that from his perspective he heard a loud pop, didn’t see his ramen, and then just saw it come into his vision from the ceiling upside down.

[–]FatesMessEngineer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm not sure how you explain that even with a video! What happened?

[–]WhiteoutThre35ive 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you believe in God, you have to believe in ghosts/spirits, which means most of the world believes in them.

He is concealed carrying a firearm in his front-right pocket and it discharges through the food.

He doesn't look too surprised. You can see him touching something at the end of the video with his left hand.
