    How to Build a Bacon Blow Torch

    You know bacon is delicious, but did you know it contains enough energy to melt metal?

    PopSci.com has a post about one man’s goal to build a device out of bacon and using it to cut a steel pan in half.

    Theodore Gray basically built a thermal lance (similar to the device used to cut scrap metal or rescue your ass from a collapsed building). A lance, as he describes it, is typically made of iron (instead of bacon) and works by blowing pure oxygen through a pipe packed with iron and magnesium rods. The result is a jet of superheated iron plasma coming out of the end of the pipe.

    He actually used dried prosciutto because “it is a superior engineering grade of meat” and discovered that certain foods are a source of serious amounts of energy.
