There are inquiring minds out there who ask themselves questions like: "What would happen if I drop red hot nickel into various substances?" Fortunately, we now live in an age where people who have such thoughts have access to video cameras and Internet connections, and can share the crazy results with the rest of us.

YouTube user carsandwater is one such person, and he's carved quite a viral niche for himself with his red hot nickel experiments. This time around, carsandwater heats up a red hot nickel ball to drop into a cup of honey, which frighteningly begins hissing and popping all over the place. On the second attempt, a plastic jug is placed over the red hot nickel-infused honey cup, and the results are even more compelling as the jug melts and contorts because of all the smoke inside.
