Maybe you remember my recent post “Schwanau on Ice” with walking on the frozen Lake Lauerz? I mentioned in that post that there are natural gas bubbles caught under the ice. There is a long (and dangerous!) tradition to burn that gas. That this is really dangerous shows this a short video going viral on ‘WhatsApp’ today:
Luckily, nobody was really hurt. But you can imagine that this can end badly, so don’t try that!
Usually the gas needs oxygen from the air above the ice to burn. More videos are from 2012:
Impressive, but dangerous: don’t play with gas!
Happy Methaning 🙂
