Hyggelig!

Hygge or hyggelig ... from Danish, meaning pleasant, snug, cozy, and comfortable, like sitting by a campfire and staring into its flames.

The first 40 seconds of this video are pure hygge. Then ... not so much.

PS
The "Tsar Bomba" reference made me laugh out loud. The whole thing is a terrible idea yet, admittedly, something I've wanted to see ... all in the name of science of course.

Nice pyro work - but minor league.

In college, we put a half-full spray can of engine starting ether in the bonfire. When it went, it made about a 10 meter fireball that rose into the sky...

Fun!

Everybody make it out with all eyebrows intact?

My brother-in-law recalls how he and his buddy hid behind a berm and fired shots at a propane tank. The resulting boom was apparently very impressive ... and equally sobering when they heard shrapnel whistle over their heads. You could almost hear a mother's advice "It's all fun and games, until someone gets hurt!"

Well, I did lose my eyebrows and some hair in another incident, which involved gasoline, and some delay while I looked for the matches. Kind of cool when I struck the match and the world turned orange...
