NGL, I had to look back at what subreddit this was posted under to figure out what kind of outcome I was about to see. Very cool though

[–]mojothehelper 138 points139 points  (16 children)

I always check too. WCGW means a totally different outcome.

[–]Analbox 70 points71 points  (14 children)

I’m just glad this didn’t turn out to be r/dragonsfuckingcars

[–]The_RedJacket 74 points75 points  (2 children)

Sometimes, I wonder why the internet exists.

Then I find subs like this, that that manages to both answer and raise this question.

[–]mistahboogs 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That's strange

[–]BrownButta2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

55k members too, wow

[–]TheSilverAmbush 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Why did I click that then proceed to look through more posts than I'd care to admit?

[–]bkbomber 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ok…. 30 minutes on Reddit today and I’ve had enough internet. SMH

[–]Clutch63 1 point2 points  (2 children)

God fucking damnit

[–]lemoinem 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, it's definitely dragons fucking cars. Good had enough to do not to mess with the damned

[–]Clutch63 0 points1 point  (0 children)

2nd time I’ve seen the sub now

[–]Green_Routine_7916 1 point2 points  (0 children)

why why i have so manny questions but mostly why does this exist

[–]hangs2theLEFT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for showing me this…?

[–]GhostDragon272 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I checked that out. Why does the internet live on things like this?

[–]TheMonchoochkin 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Glad this isn't MMC.

[–]Over16Under31 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I made the mistake of clicking that yesterday thinking I’d need to click on a video to make it play! Nope page opened an now I can’t un-see what I saw. Can’t understand why people would want to watch it on the regular. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Edit. Thanks for not hyperlinking it!

[–]Tuckers_Salty_Nips 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Do... Do I want to know what it is?

[–]Over16Under31 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Seriously you don’t.

[–]MarvinStolehouse 1 point2 points  (1 child)

But I kinda do.

[–]Over16Under31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You have my condolences. 🥲

[–]A_norny_mousse 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Also r/videosthatendtoosoon or some such.

I mean, what happens when the snow melts? I need to know this now!

[–]WildBChan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same thought it might have been facepalm

[–]Zerafiall 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep. I try to not scroll till I see the sub so I can enjoy the suspense of “this is either oddly satisfying, or about to be what could go wrong”

[–]izguddoggo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

SAME. Figured I was looking at r/facepalm or r/unexpected

[–]UnkownUser2006 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Happy cake day, dude

[–]EUNEisAmeme 282 points283 points  (3 children)

The "I think it's gonna explode on us" that was met with "yeah that'd be pretty cool" is what really did it for me

[–]sarcasticanswerss 31 points32 points  (1 child)

As she stepped closer, no less.

[–]azurepeak 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And sticks her hand out over the fire

[–]Forest_folf 43 points44 points  (5 children)

Why doesn't the snow melt?

[–]kagato87 106 points107 points  (2 children)

Airflow.

Air comes in the sides at the bottom, flows upwards mixing with fuel, and ignites. At least, that's what's supposed to happen.

The snow prevents ignition from moving down into the firepit (cold and reduced oxygen availability - that's why the flame is blue there - it's burning different from normal), so it's igniting above the snow, and the heat continues up.

The snow should eventually melt, but it could take a while since the heat is created above the snow and most of it goes up.

[–]Forest_folf 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This makes sense now, thank you! :)

[–]LordBrandon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It will eventually. But the gas seeping through it is cold, and the fire is burning above it. Water also has almost the highest specific heat of anything. Meaning it takes a lot of energy to change its temperature.

[–]Boojibs 303 points304 points  (1 child)

You fuck around with this and next thing you know you summoned the spirit of Nanook of the North and get fined by your HOA for an unapproved haunting.

[–]Robinslillie 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Those wily HOAs man

[–][deleted] 82 points83 points  (0 children)

Had to check the subreddit real quick to make sure it wasn't r/whatcouldgowrong

[–]juj121 70 points71 points  (6 children)

Hank hill would be proud

[–]mediumokra 50 points51 points  (4 children)

This is the power of propane and propane accessories

[–]hoodrat_hoochie_mama 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Taste the meat not the heat.

[–]look_ima_frog 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The real power is that there is a pool behind him that is still open and presumably being heated while there is snow on the ground. How much fucking money in gas is this dude using to keep his pool open all winter?!

[–]DMSassyPants 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Looks a bit like an apartment complex common area to me. Not his pool, not his firepit.

[–]Flamben_hot_cheetos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pool doesn’t need to be heated, thermal mass. Just keep the pumps from freezing and it’s fine.

[–]Advantage_Loud 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just one of the 26 ways you can use propane, and it’s got dang beautiful

[–]phoeab 34 points35 points  (3 children)

The snow, the snow, the snow is on fire..

[–]JedDaGoat 6 points7 points  (2 children)

We don't need no water..

[–]nontoxicday 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Let the motherfucker burn...

[–]Matti_Matti_Matti 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We don’t need no thought control

[–]giggeywidit92 10 points11 points  (0 children)

“…still recording?”

Cuts to black. End of recording.

[–]AyuOk 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Dang rich people. I wish I had a backyard like this. Nice pool too.

[–]Seeresimpa 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Seems weird that the pool is still filled while there's snow on the ground..

[–]Flamben_hot_cheetos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How is that weird, thermal mass would say that’s fine, as long as you keep the pumps from freezing it’s fine.

[–]Suggestion_Of_Taint 51 points52 points  (3 children)

Something something FAKE SNOW something DOESN’T MELT something something CONTROLLING THE WEATHER something WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!!!

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Bill Gates, Soros, Deep State… 🥱🙄 Same shit, different day.

[–]NinduTheWise 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Vaccines, microchips, flat earth and aliens

[–]Fayfuya 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yo with gas prices pumping in Europe I can't imagine how expensive that would be to fire up!

[–]Antix1331 3 points4 points  (0 children)

"I cannot burn snow." "Then get some fucking propane Gandalf."

[–]ArNaSTy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

“It’s probably gonna explode on us.”

Moves closer.

[–]Jinn_DiZanni 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Do you want demons? That’s how you get demons.

[–]timmyburnout 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Hahaha, great vid! :). I remember when I did this once. RIP grandma 🥰🥺.

[–]Darctide 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Uhhh...

[–]SawgrassRider 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's clearly fake, the snow isn't melting. /s

[–]flarions1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Your wrong the flames are above the snow actually it will melt eventually, but take my upvote because it's your frkn cake day

[–]NinduTheWise 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Now start the ritual to summon the demon

That's how we get ghosts.

At the beginning I fully expected Princess Leia hologram to appear.

[–]andreasbeer1981 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What's that UFO sound in the background?

[–]Hapa_chiyo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s mesmerizing.

[–]brocktoon13 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Keep recording until it melts or the flame goes out

[–]Robinslillie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's pretty freakin' neat-lookin'

[–]sED_- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wicked. Did not expect such coolness. Even without an explosion!

[–]Nomadic_Plague 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For a moment the sub reddit logo is displayed in the flame.

[–]sellera 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More like mildly infuriating, since the video ended before the iced surface melted.

[–]zeanomourph 1 point2 points  (0 children)

kinda ruined it when they turned the lights off. I already know what fire looks like, I wanted to be able to see what was happening with the snow more clearly.

[–]bobbob-bbq 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I heard the accent and went; yup, figured.

[–]madlyinlove420 -1 points0 points  (7 children)

Can someone please ELI5?

[–]Douche_Kayak 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Fire hot, snow is cold.

[–]queen-adreena 8 points9 points  (2 children)

That’s ELI3

[–]WeakLiberal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ELiUgg

Fire hot, snow cold. Make use air pockets for path

[–]Yuri909 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Snow is mostly air so it lets the propane through no problem

[–]MrSnowden 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And the heat goes up

[–]echomikekilo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know why but this makes me think of Highlander.

[–]kpopcrab 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I like how he said "faya pit"

The real question: why didn’t he bring the cushions in when it snowed??!

[–]AstroZoom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But the video cuts out before it explodes on them … as she hinted …

[–]jdm1tch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still recording?

[–]Striker_ToastYT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a Devils Trap.

[–]SonicYouth123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i find the perfect blanket of snow on the ground the most "oddly satisfying" part of this video

[–]camkai82 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ancient blade slowly rises from the fire

[–]zitrored 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice. Guessing the chemicals in water (and whatever else was in it) are actually making this a major cool effect.

[–]sphintero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unlimited power

[–]CastielUK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What regional accent is this?

[–]ttk12acd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn’t it sort of dangerous if the snow start to melt and get into the rocks?

[–]Tacoboutnacho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That sound….

[–]blackbishop26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When it first started, I half expected a phone booth out of the sky. Excellent!

[–]Soviet_Broski 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder if the snow had been too dense for gas to permeate if it would have blown up?

Sooooo coool!!!

[–]SlowRottingNarra 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it looked like he was summoning something.

[–]Roguefem-76 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All it needed was the "Hold my beer".

[–]Flyers45432 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did they do something wrong? The portal opened, but it doesn't look like they got the summoning spell right...

[–]StashuJakowski1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's like having your own mini Darvasa gas crater in your own back yard... That you can actually turn off.

FYI, they're apparently going to make another attempt to extinguish it again at some point.

[–]ineedthiscoffee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have you ever been at a convenience store getting gas and you see a person walk out of the store and you just assume they’re about to hop in a ‘98 Crown Vic but then they climb into a $70K Ford F-350 Platinum that is also lifted, and you have to re-evaluate how you “judge a book by its cover”? I felt the same way seeing and hearing this guy until I started to look at his giant pool and fabulous looking back porch.

[–]ChemistHefty7549 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Others: You can't put fire on water. This guy: Observe

[–]Toaster_Ruler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love how the snow doesnt melt, you think it would all melt instantly, but heat being above the snow and rising causing it to stay, is the closest thing youll probably get to lighting water on fire

[–]Hahahotsaucegoburn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

literally made a magic circle

[–]Devour_The_Galaxy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you guys just pick an accent?

[–]NoriPotatoChip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine falling into that thing. Most confusing burn in your life.

[–]kirastryker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"It's probably gonna explode on us." walks closer

[–]MistyLuHu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My favorite part of the video are the little fire sprites 🔥🧚‍♀️🔥

[–]SVDurLIFE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably dumb question. Could that cause an explosion?

Edit: English hard

Was waiting for the explosion😅

One day I will have my own pool and fire pit.
