Sure, most people will never need a homemade flamethrower. But who knows? Let's say you're ten beers into a Saturday afternoon and discover a hornets nest on your property. Or, you're the victim of a home invasion with a strict scorched-earth policy. Or, you've watched one-too-many horror movies and have begun losing sleep over the coming Zombie Apocalypse. Well, thanks to Ivan Owen's dangerously instructive video, you no longer have an excuse for being unprepared. All you need is a leaf blower, some corn starch, a blow torch, and a complete disregard for fire safety.
This is one of those videos that makes me thankful that YouTube wasn't around when I was young. Because if I'd seen Ivan Owen's invention at twelve, I may never have lived to see thirteen. And if I somehow did, I probably would've celebrated my birthday in a burn unit. That said, as an adult with absolutely no need for a cornstarch flamethrower, there's still a part of me that would love to have one. A surprisingly big part. Thanks for blazing a trail, Ivan!
