This Teacher Just Lit a Student on Fire to Make a Point

Wait, what? Did this junior high student’s hand just explode? And no one even called the school nurse?!

This gutsy young teacher clearly knows how to engage his audience. He had a volunteer come to the front of the class and dip his hand into a mixture of methane and soap. Then the teacher did what any good educator does, right? Lit the kid on fire.

Of course, he knew a little something his class didn’t — methane bubbles rise when released.

Thanks to science and a clever teacher, the youngster left class burn-free. (Can you imagine the conversations at lunch that day?)

Breaking rules is kind of CaseyNeistat‘s thing. He was featured on last night’s evening news, and his cinematic, first-person edit of the excursion surfaced on YouTube this morning.

The BEST Colorized Photos From History You’ve Ever Seen

In The Wizard of Oz, one of the pivotal moments is when Dorothy suddenly steps out of the shadows of black and white into a colorful land. It was literally a whole new world for her, and for all the viewers.

The same can be said for old photos. We see them in black and white, and it’s easy to forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today.

But thanks to the people of Reddit, specifically the r/Colorization subreddit, we no longer have to wonder what it might look like. The principal contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers and restorers that bring historic photos to life through color, and while we can’t be sure that those hues are exactly as they were at that time, it’s close enough to give us a solid idea.
