    Yeah, but they DID get a plane to take off of a treadmill when everyone said they couldn't do it...

    I wonder how fast you would have to pass something through that heat without it getting too much damage. The whole pass your finger through the candle flame trick.

    At the speed it took to melt the steel, I don't think a finger would fare too well, even if it was just a "flick".

    It was going faster than the treadmill. What a crock

    What a bummer it would be to walk in front of this thing at the wrong time!
