Ever seen this guy on TV? He's this crazy Canadian inventor who made this incredible fire paste. There is no doubt that it can match the insulating capabilities of NASA-grade ceramics. If you watched him on TV with his fire paste, you will know. For about a year already, I've been dying to know what it is made out of. Clues: Troy: "If I told you what the ingredients were, you'd laugh" (suggesting household, easily obtainable materials) Wikipedia: Tests revealed that the substance contained bromine and lithium. Wikipedia: He revealed one of the ingredients as Diet Coke. Troy: "I take a look at what's going on in Harvard, (and several other Ivy-league institutions), and I apply them over here" (not verbatim) He puts it in the microwave to prepare. As for the lithium, this might suggest the presence of clay, since some clay (but not all) contains lithium. The Diet Coke can serve no other purpose than to increase the porosity of the substance. Any further leads? Let's crack this guy's secret open.
