A thermal lance made out of bacon

Bacon: the Other White Heat | Popular Science

I recently committed myself to the goal, before the weekend was out, of creating a device entirely from bacon and using it to cut a steel pan in half. My initial attempts were failures, but I knew success was within reach when I was able to ignite and melt the pan using seven beef sticks and a cucumber.
The trick is to use pure oxygen!

What a wonderful, wonderful world we live in.

Oxygen is some powerful stuff.

Maybe I am a bit of a cynic, but I suspect that somewhere there was some sort of alcohol involved in this.

Makes sense, fuel is fuel. Myth Busters made a rocket motor that
sort of worked out of a tube of salami cored out.

I would never imagine that we can use oxygen to do that it is amazing but it could be dangerous if you don't know how to used it.
