Wow, the nation'* finest, for sure. My guess would be lighter fluid or rubbing alcohol..somthing flammable but not too potent. If that had been gasoline, it would probably have blown up in his face as soon as he lit it. Dumbasses..

They probably used homemade napalm. It'* basically gasoline (or kerosene) and dish soap mixed until it'* like a gel. Burns easy but doesn't explode, yet when spread out thin it can really go! ......I used to use the stuff in boy scouts

Haha, we used to make that stuff too when we got bored...we never had a real use for it though. We dissolved styrofoam in gasoline to make ours. We let it float on top of our pond and lit it....burned for quite a while. Not the smartest stuff to make, but most guys go through a pyro phase at some point growing up

Hmm.. styrofoam you say? I gotta big bag of that stuff. Do you happen to remember the ratio of styrofoam to gas? And possibly a ratio for soap and gas?

Just start adding soap and mixing carefully until it is a mild gel. If you test it, be sure to use a very small amount... last thing you want to do is blow something up, like yourself.

There really wasn't a ratio that we used. The general rule is that you keep feeding the styrofoam into the gas until it doesnt dissolve anymore. Keep in mind though that using styrofoam will leave a hard plastic crust behind once all the fuel burns off...it doesnt burn away completely. I've never used soap before, so I'm not sure what the after effects are...

I don't know man.. they were smart enough to mix the stuff up. Whatever it may be exactly.

Plus they could cut the melon open. Some people are too retarded to do that.
