ehm, okay? does it really explode that much? They must have hidden something else in it.
Stupid to stand so close when lighting it up though ;)

Rapid combustion can do that.

A large amount of fuel burns up (and releases heat) in a very short period of time. Conclusion: It doesn't take 100 litres of gasoline to light a fire.

Gasoline evaporates fairly quickly, and gasoline vapor is more dense than air. So it settled in all the cracks of the structure. As it reached combustion temperature, it expanded, and then exploded.

The guys were too stupid to realize that even though gasoline burns well, it's not lighter fluid.
 
The gasoline fumes are what did it. Gas fumes can ignite at something like .4% atmosphere, so it didn't really explode, it just burned the stuff in the air.

Can't get the link to work, but gasoline vapor is much more volatile than liquid. A gas can that is 1/3 full is much more likely to explode than one that is full. A bucket of gasoline in open air is not that dangerous. Lock in an enclosed room and let it evaporate, and the room becomes a bomb waiting for someone to light the fuse.

Ah, lessons learned from youthful indiscretions...

Those two were lucky that they weren't instantly and painfully flash fried. The only ways it would have been worse is if they'd used kerosene or rocket fuel...the end result would still have been a resounding flash-boom followed by screams. I don't understand why people are so fascinated by fire.

why we are fascinated by fire? stupid question! :D
Fire destroys life, fire gives life, fire looks nice, fire is a freaking skill tree in d2 (ehm), fire is also a song by scooter. Do we need more arguments!? :D

Nah, i guess its a part of human nature to like seeing things destroyed in noticable ways. Fire and explosions have always fascinated mankind, the difference is that we nowadays (most people at least) dont think its work of the gods.

Well the page was from Iceland...

I think that pretty much explains the fire obsession. They try to stabilise the elements.

Sure the video was from Germany or at least the text in it. But it is appearing on a icelandic homepage and that was my only point. :)
