Were they really on fire? I couldn't see any flames.

hell of a place to do a flaming shot.

I don't think they were really on fire. I certainly didn't see any flames!

The harder he tries to convince me that there is a fire, the less I believe him.

He enters the first corner too fast, but you cannot see it.
They are indeed on fire - hey, you wanna run methanol through your race car, better be ready for some invisible fires. For some invisible fire dance parties on the paddock.

I think the narrator is trying to tell us something.
it's like the kind of essay you wrote when you realized it was due the next day and you hadn't done anything... just restate the thesis in as many ways as possible
I knew a guy who did hardwood floors, I don't remember what sort of stain or whatever they used but if it ignited it burned totally clear, you only knew it was happening when you saw the floor turn black, advancing at you very quickly
Either alcohol fire or j-horror ghost attack, either way probably a good excuse to get the fuck out of there
Methinks the lady doth protest too much

The most ridiculous part of this is that methanol replaced gasoline in Indycars as a supposed safety feature, due to the fact that you can put out an (nearly invisible) alcohol fire with water. It all stems from an over-reaction to a fatal gas fire in the early 60s.

You're not on fire, Ricky Bobby.
During 150/bbl oil it became popular to inject basically vodka into wells to try and improve their performance in some Latin American countries. As far as I know only nationals because the economics worked out well enough for private companies.
One guy's job was sitting at a vantage point to see if anybody starts running in circles for no reason and flailing.
the economics didn't work out well enough
Interesting video, but I wish the narrator had mentioned that in this situation the flames are actually invisible to the human eye, and as such cannot be seen.
RIDDLE ME THIS: If the people are on fire, as the narrator seems to claim, then where are the flames? How can they be on fire if there are no flames to be seen anywhere in this video?

They just all need to be issued brooms.
Nothing is certain in a world of invisible fire. :(
FIRE YOU CANNOT SEE!
BY CROM, THIS IS FOUL MAGIC!
You are on fire but you can not see it! This IS a fire. You are receiving this fire from the year 1-9-9-9. We are unable to burn you through conscious neural interference. I repeat. You are on fire but you can not see it!
DAMN THESE HANDS FOR SQUANDERING STARS THAT WERE SO RIGHTFULLY YOURS DEAR XIPHIAS
I MEAN RAGGAMUFFIN
DAMN DAMN DOUBLE-DAMN THEM
This sounds like a Commieliberal plot to make us question God.

When I was 10 and unsupervised I played around with a rubbing alcohol/water mix in the driveway once. Not only are the flames invisible, it burns at a lower temp than petrol so at first paper and clothing acts as a wick instead of visibly igniting.
My masterpiece was a wet kleenex on invisible fire. I didn't get hurt but I did set the side of the house on fire when the flames hit my fingers and I reflexively tossed it away
"It really is a terrible problem!" The narrator sounds like he is holding back laughter the whole time.
I love so many of these comments.
Cosmic Rays of Deadly Fire!
Invisible fire soon to be featured in an episode of CSI:Miami. Yeah.
Invisible you say?
"YOU cannot see it!" Saturdays at 8, on BBC2.
I can see it.
This seems like a real problem. Someone should write a book on what to do when you are engulfed in flames.
I did write a book about what to do if engulfed in invisible flames. It was pretty in depth, but the main points could be summed up as:
and of course,
goes without saying, but I had to include it for completeness.
