The Watermelon Aluminum-Art Safety Checklist

  • Step 1: jeans, casual shoes, and molten metal? Check.
  • Step 2: lack of fire-safe enclosure? Check.
  • Step 3: slam kitchen knife into table? Check.
  • Step 4: cut through tough watermelon husk by pulling knife toward body? Check.
  • Step 5: flail knife around dog and sister? Check.


Redditors make a good point.

Do you remember the molten aluminum fire ant colony?

This video reminds me of that. 

Also, don't you just love that he's in Florida?

floridaman is at work again!  safety schmafety.

i love artistic experiments!

I like the word schmafety. :)

It really did turn out surprisingly well.
