Judging by the kid's reaction, he's not going to graduate as a mage.

I swear if someone taught me science by handing me balls of fire, I wouldn't have hated every minute of my education and would be a STEM student. Edit: I see many replies about how I wouldn't most probably be a good student even if my teacher did something like this and I agree. In hindsight, its easier to blame your failures on anyone but yourself and just make excuses. So I guess most probably they are right. Having said that I just want to add that I am from a small town of a third world country. In science class, all our teachers did was to read the text from the book and declare that chapter to be over. And I am not blaming the teachers here either, frankly they weren't paid enough to care and neither did they have enough incentives to teach in interesting ways outside of paid tuition classes nor enough budget to conduct experiments of these kinds. Hell, from grade 6 to 10, the period during which I had science in my curriculum, we didn't have a single practical. Our teacher just gave us notes and we copied that into our practical copies without having done any experiment. Now I understand, most of these sounds like I am just making excuses for my short comings. The sole reason I love arts or humanities subjects more than STEM ones is because I always understood what I read, I never felt like I was missing something. Whenever I read a chapter from history or literature, I could picture them in my head. That was interesting to me, I knew what I was reading. That wasn't the case when I read a chapter from physics or chemistry. I always felt like I was missing something and I didn't understand shit. And maybe that's what separates the STEM folks from us, they have an innate ability to understand science. I am just saying that if someone did show me even one or two stuffs like this, yeah most probably I wouldn't graduate highschool this year as a STEM student, but at least studying science wouldn't have felt like torture. Sorry for a long, boring-ass rant.

I like how he walks away in the end. "Woah, that's it? That's neat"

Science teacher here, where can I get a job where this is the go? I would get absolutely fired for doing this with a student in class.

What substance is it?

I wonder if anyone holding the fireball has ever freaked out and dived out the window, like that king in Lord of the Rings

Both of these people should be wearing eye protection.

If my science teachers had looked like Jake Ryan, I might have gone into STEM.

That was poorly done on the teachers part regarding safety. He should have told the pupil to hold his hand flat and wipe the bubbles away from underneath his hand. This is likely why the pupil was waving his hand around at the end because the heat from the bubbles underneath his hand was almost burning him.

And then the fire Nation came along and destroyed everything

I love how the professor spins the lighter at the end

No goggles or wet hands first, CLEAPPS would be furious

This was so fun! I did this when I was about 7 and it freaked me out!

That PowerPoint slide is slightly upsetting.

I which I could do cool stuff like this in science

THIS is the type of teachers needed. I had a science teacher in the 9th grade who would teach us things then show us. I remember when he would take a copper penny, dip it in a solution and make it "gold". Then gave us until the next day to figure out how he did it. I didn't figure it out but he told us the next day. Was pretty bad ass. honestly wish i could contact him to tell him that I know the periodic table because of him.

aaaand he is a pyromancer. it doesnt require any int points or faith points you only need a fiery hand.

We did this back when I was in high school. It’s how I got one of the coolest pictures of myself

That teacher is hot AF

This is a chemical reaction reaction gif actually.

We did this in my HS science class, but when my buddy did it, his became a huge fireball and he lost a bit of his eyebrows.

I didn't know Geno was a teacher too!

I read the title and clicked without checking the sub. I was so sure it was going to be instant regret or nononono or something.

Methane bubbles. I remember doing this in high school, singed the hair off my hands.

I wish my science teacher was that cool.

Can’t wait until he tries to replicate this at home!

Nice tide pod

Ahh the good old gas pumped into dish soap...

My chemistry teacher lit a chemistry book on fire instead. He was also my physics teacher and he demonstrated how a concave lens worked by lighting a cigarette (this was the early ‘90s). One of my fellow students said “Mr. ____, I didn’t know you smoked.” “Not cigarettes,” he answered.

Isn't standing in front of a projector dangerous.

This is so uncanny because I'm the president of chem club at my school and we literally just did this two days ago but instead of methane we used butane. It was hilarious because there were only a few people who knew what would happen so when I lit my hand I screamed as if it actually hurt and everyone jumped.

Nice. Just don't try that with napalm.
13 Jan 2018 20:27 - +1
And I was terrified I might get fired for setting students desks on fire..
13 Jan 2018 21:19 - +1
this framerate is painful to watch
13 Jan 2018 18:28 - +1
What's the gas here?
13 Jan 2018 21:22 - +1
Fire Nation schools be like!
13 Jan 2018 19:52 - +1
Yeah, my teachers were way to big of a fuck up to trust them to not kill me with something like this
13 Jan 2018 21:27 - +1
Not the fireball I thought you meant.

I was just watching a video of a woman frying fish with fire ball hand haha
