      I’ll say! But our security isn’t something our government is all that concerned with these days unless you’re from some protected special interest group. God save us all.

    Obama is the divine sign our radical Islamist enemies have been waiting for. From Al Qaida to the Shiite mullahs of Iran; from the Wahabis of Arabia to the Moslem Brothers and the Taliban, one and all see Obama as a heaven sent gift from Almighty Allah to bankrupt the US and destroy the Pax Americana, thus setting the stage for the restoration of Islam as a great world power.

    And so then what? We are supposed to sit and wait until the barbarians attack us with these things?
    What is the white powder and red liquid? We need to know to defend ourselves. Zerobama isn’t going to raise a hand to help us.

    there is good reason for the producer of this clip not going into detail about what substances will make this work. if it was widespread knowledge some idiot will surely try it just to see if it really will go “BOOM”

    Um … Wait a second. The watermelon is vaporized? It appears to disappear completely. No splatter on the camera lens? A WATERmelon vaporized? Sorry. This looks like a fake to me.

      You’re jumping to conclusions here, and I’m afraid they’re wrong.

      If you were taking THOSE images, would you be standing close enough to the object to get splattered, or would you be far back shooting with a telephoto lens in order to protect yourself, and your equipment ?

        Yeah, but some evidence of the settled watermelon mist might be nice just for proof… you know. Just sayin’ that’s all. I do believe it, but I like some sort of scientific proof, too.

    Notice the “fire” i.e. sparkler on the right side of the melon just before it’s vaporized…at the same time, the pen/fuse/binary is totally intact, hmmm

      I just looked at it a few times in a row, and even in slow motion, I found it impossible to detect the time sequencing that you’re suggesting.

      Is there some kind a software that you’re watching this through that slows the video down far more than the slow motion replay in the video ?
