For those that can't watch videos... :glare:   :biggrin:

Experiment with mixtures, Styrofoam and gasoline or diesel, or both, gas is by far more flammable.
Pour the gas over Styrofoam, the gas will turn the foam into a gel, pour off excess gas, and whats left is napalm.

Ah, yes --- Sterno. The vagrant's friend. Strain it through bread and the fumes would rip your head off. (I saw that on 60 Minutes. The stuff those journalists dig up!)  :lol:
