Damn... i'm getting some of those.
Where are the controls? Fires started by burning things in malfunctioning toasters are nothing new...ask the local fire department. Is there any reason to think a pop tart is anything special compared to anything else that burns in a toaster?
You forgot the warning:
Don't try this at home!!!!!!
i would bread would work better, since it's full of holes that would make for better ventilation than a dense poptart. maybe the poptart is made of a more flammable material.
Its the sugars, which make it burn so well.
And don't forget all of that ammonium nitrate that they used to fertilize the strawberries. :tongue:
I hope the military doesn't see this. They will be stuffing those pop tarts into incendiary artillery shells. and pop tarting the enemy into submission.
For some reason bread just turns black and sets there and smokes.
REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE TOASTER BEFORE DIGGING OUT THE BURNT TOAST WITH A TABLE FORK!
Actually I did try it a few years ago. (Outdoors of course) As the link stated if set on the highest setting some toasters, mine included, will start the pop tart fires. Even worse, my son and I put an extra coil spring under the pop up mechanism and the toaster actually tossed flaming pop tarts out onto the sidewalk.
edit: I no longer have that toaster.
This is a physics website, I would hope that people know this
If not, natural selection, here they come...
but...we're in the dungeon...:uhh:
Nitrocellulose also has this effect on toasters.
I was not aware that Nitrocelluose was a popular breakfast snack.
Well you're not aware of alot of things, are you? :grumpy:
It's not a snack in itself; it's a common filler in certain brands of breakfast burrito.
