Who says that only sexy chicks can set ice on fire, I've got the simplest DIY that you'll ever come across, to say to yours pals "Hey mate, I set some ice on fire!" Mr. Kent, a bloke who just can't get enough of the fiery stuff, took a Pyrex dish and spread some calcium carbide chemical and then put ice cubes on it. Now, as the ice melts the water drips down over the calcium carbide and starts a reaction that produces acetylene gas (highly flammable). Put a lighted up candle (before hand) or ignite a match stick and throw it inside the dish from a safe distance. The match will thereafter burn on its own, literally setting "ice on fire."
