Did y’all know that today is the most boring day of the year when it comes to pro sports? There’s no NBA, NHL, MLB, PGA, and the Tour de France even took a day off after the riders climbed to Andorra! Actually, as a Tampa Bay Lightning fan while I might not have live sports on today I have been able to watch the Stanley Cup Championship boat parade. So that’s been nice.

Alas, the Champa Bay Boat Parade 3.0 has ended for now and I’m sitting here cruising YouTube for clips to share with you bros. What I’ve just stumbled across is this clip that demonstrates why you should never start a bonfire using a gasoline tank.

The clip demonstrates this by using a gasoline tank to start the bonfire and I think you can see where this is headed. Big. Badda. Boom. The best fireball you’re going to see today.

Do not try this at home:

At the last big bonfire I went to they started the fire using that flame thrower sold by Elon Musk. It was awesome. I highly suggest using a flame thrower next time you’re throwing a bonfire. If you don’t own a flame thrower you should go out and buy one. Don’t build one because that might end in disaster, leave the building to the experts.

If we’re being honest here, it’s never occurred to me to start a bonfire using a gas tank. I remember an episode of MythBusters where they shot one with a rifle and it was pretty obvious that they’re insanely combustible. It’s just not a great idea to mess around with those.
