    Nice experiment, and turned out like anthill sculptures. He can probably begin selling these online if he wanted to make some more money.

    The only thing I see wrong is this kid has no regard for safety. icon_lol.gif I watched a few other videos, and he is walking around with molten metals upwards of 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit... in shorts. Though still dressed for a summer cookout, he did have enough sense to step back from thermite reactions.

    You know... Most towns with an old smelter have a mountain of slag out at the edge of town. You can pick up interesting pieces for free.

    If the EPA hasn't slapped a Superfund flag on it and put up a fence yet. Best bet is in Europe. Shit is laying around everywhere.

    Fun factoid: Spanish for "Slag" is "Escoria."
