Watch a real life Human Torch create fire with his bare hands

Who knew that one of the easiest superhero powers to get (at least on a neutered, pathetic human scale) is the Human Torch's Flame On power? If you're Russian and/or drink a lot of vodka, you can use a hot wire and a debauched sense of pain to create fire with your bare hands. Just pour fuel on the ground, hold a hot wire in one hand and place your free hand over the fuel to complete the circuit. Instaflame.

Uh, don't try this at home.
