So some time ago I made a thread where I tested out a myth going around the web called "Fake Snow"/"Chemical Snow". So just as the myths stated,
the snow I tested got burnt without a single drop of water. I was thankful to those who posted scientific answers/theories and discussed it. But I was
disgusted with the majority of people who only decided to bash the thread to death.
I was still left with questions and confusion though.
So my dad tells me today that he went out to fix my uncles ATV that he was using to plow snow (we live in New Jersey).
He told me that he added starter fluid to the bike and that something went wrong. The bike caught on fire. They panicked trying to put it out. My dad
grabbed a shovel and started throwing snow on it...what happened? The snow caused the blaze to erupt and grow. My uncle covered his jacket in snow and
tried putting out the fire only to have his jacket quickly catch on fire. They managed to put out the fire luckily without things getting damaged.
My dad was confused cause he thought that snow was supposed to help put out fires and such. I see his logic, I might have a scientific explanation for
it, but who knows.
What is your take on this ATS? Do you think the snow has some chemical mixed in? Or is there a scientific answer.
(Please don't bash this thread. These are just questions and about things people are talking about on the web lately).
