Despite watching beakers explode and dangerous chemicals catch fire in almost every movie that takes place inside a high school, I was never once placed in a terrifying or life-threatening situation in the lab. And I’m absolutely grateful for that.
This high school class, however, seems to come straight from the teen movies. In the video, a group of teens pass around a flaming ball of propane — essentially playing hot potato with a ball of fire.
While the students look like they’re having fun, a few of them do seem to be in pain, (as you would expect after catching a fiery propane ball in your hands and tossing it to your lab partner.)
This is definitely a dangerous activity, so enjoy the video, but remember what your mother told you about playing with fire, (and don’t try this at home!)
