You remember how in Home Alone when Joe Pesci’s character gets his head lit on fire with a blow torch for like 10 seconds straight?
What would actually happen to a human if that happened in real life?
The intrepid Mark Rober used chicken skin, a styrofoam head, and a beanie to find out.
Spoiler: the head gets absolutely wrecked.
If the blow torch scorched you like that in real life, in less than a second you’d get a third-degree burn.
In two to three seconds, your skin is burnt all the way through.
