The physics of fire, gasoline, and sheer unbridled idiocy

This is what it looks like when you set a bucket of gasoline on fire, toss it through the air, film it at 2500 fps and then slow down the footage reaaaaal slow. It's totally dangerous, highly inadvisable (don't attempt this at home, etc.) and absolutely awesome to watch. Plus, as Fuck Yeah Fluid Dynamics explains,… » 1/24/13 2:20pm 1/24/13 2:20pm

The video is of an effect known in fluid dynamics as the coalescence cascade, which can be observed (provided you have access to a video camera with a sufficiently high frame rate) when a drop of liquid is deposited very gently onto the surface of a layer of the same liquid.
