YDI for learning that ice cubes do not cool down hot oil, instead it explodes hot grease all over your parents' kitchen.

I once threw water on a grease fire. That shit went everywhere haha. It coulda been worse

this reminds me of when I was little and put a burger still wrapped in aluminum foil in the microwave.

48-my friends fiance set my friends kitchen on fire because he was cooking her a romantic dinner but the grease caught fire and he tried to put it out with water but it like exploded (not literally) and the cabinets were all black lol :) but they are still together today lol :P

Oh goodness. you should have thrown flour on it haha:) it cools down the oil and doesn't have it splatter everywhere:) I learned that trick in my food and fitness class. :p haha.

dam op retard but this couldve made some awesome fire works if you watch mythbusters 8oz water....BOOM fire ball <3

This reminds me of the time I was heating up my hot chocolate in the microwave, and my hot chocolate just blew up. It was so depressing, I had used up the last of the powder to make that mug, so I couldn't go and make any more. =(

@241 1) there is a MAJOR difference between the effect that some residual water has in a pan with hot oil, and putting an ICE CUBE in over heated oil. Imagine you lil pop and sizzles Ten times more extreme. Something, say, you can't jus step back from. 2) how the eff do yo think grease fires start?!? Someone puts water in oil, or something that makes it splatter badly, it touches open flame, and then spreads or jumps and reacts with more oil amd bam, you have a fire. So, 241, you seem to

227 "do not copy" on a copyrighted photo just means you can't take it and have it reprinted by anyone except the original photographer.

It seems that most of the people calling OP an idiot or saying that water and oil do not mix fall into 4 categories 1) they cooked with mom and dad as a child and were told this 2) they played with fire as a child and were given a lecture 3) they watch mythbusters 4) they've done it before Now if you want to see a real explosion you should have made thermite instead and watched that fall on ice.

Actually, 306, I knew this from logical deduction. First, even a small amount of water added to hot oil causes oil to pop and splatter. Second, suddenly exposing an ice cube to high heat causes it to explode, crack, and splatter in a much more violent fashion. I learned this in 8th grade science class. Dry ice vs. ice cube on a hot plate. The ice cube explodes. Combine the two together and you have something worse than just one or the other. And look at that, I didn't have to do somet

Someone did something like that where I worked. They put an Arby's roast beef in the microwave with the foil on still and it burst into flames.

*points and laughs* and everyone learned a lesson. Well all but those who r now laughing at u! *laughs some more*

don't you watch mythbusters? 8 oz of water can make a 20 ft fire ball when poured on a grease fire.... it goes to say without the fire it'll just explode everywhere

Didn't you take any sort of science class in elementary school? You don't need to be a physics major to know that water, solid or liquid, and oil NEVER EVER GO TOGETHER.

Water and oil do not mix ever, but perhaps OP though the ice cube might transfer its cold to the oil. Then again, the sudden shock between the two temperatures would cause an explosion.

Reply

It's not because water and oil have different densities, dumbshit. It's because the hot oil melted/vaporized the ice and the released steam blew oil everywhere.

you stupid son of a bitch! why would you post this for the world to see you have no common sence? you deserve a darwin award

#17, you know what they say about being able to laugh at yourself! Actually, I'm not sure what they say about that, but it's good. I hate to admit it, but I only learned not to put water on a grease fire like 3 years ago. Luckily, I learned it before I started cooking.
