This Crazy Stunt Man Slid Through a Fire Unharmed

The folks at NRK Viten are up to their usual nutty antics in their latest experiment. The concept behind this video is that it takes a lot of heat to evaporate water so if a crazy person soaked himself in water and then slid down through an extremely huge fire, the water would provide a sort of protective layer that would prevent said crazy person from turning into human barbecue. Physicist Andreas Wahl tests out this idea... on himself. He’s the crazy person.

The things you do for science.
