    If you were trying to make it big and bright, why in the world wouldnt you have broke it down into powder as best you could, and light THAT instead of lighting a solid bar? Would have yielded a much better reaction.

    Lit up some magnesium thermite with liquid oxigen on top of a pile of dry ice, INSIDE THE DOME where you tested the flame thrower. The smoke would be awesome to see.

    Is magnesium in the expensive motorcycle wheels like Marchesini, OZ Racing that were made from forged magnesium also as flammable is that if I lit on fire?

    *The Magnesium Is So Dangerous Because It Gets As Bright As The Surface Of The Sun, And Can Light Nearly Anywhere Including Dry Ice Because It Is So Hungry For Oxygen And Gets Very Very Hot*
    *And The Result Of The Magnesium Burning Is Magnesium Oxide And Magnesium Nitride*

    Mix magnesium powder with iron oxide powder and aluminum powder in equal 1/3 quantities. Then put it in a small bag with a solar igniter and a battery and switch and get it burning and try to put it out.

    You can use water to put out metal fires because ( if you manage to saturate everything ) only the metal structures will be able to burn, and a general building only has a couple of % of metals in it. The exception would be a mining or metal warehouse and perhaps some sections of a hardware store. There are other factors why water is avoided, like the weight and cleanup and to not ruin expensive machinery in Industry fires.
