FWS – Destroying my xbox360 with THERMITE!

Myles xbox 360 gave him the red ring of death so he decided to take revenge on it using 1.5kg of thermite. Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of a metal powder and a metal oxide that produces an exothermic oxidation-reduction reaction. When aluminium is the reducing agent it is called an aluminothermic reaction. This reaction is extremely dangerous and Myles advise that you not to repeat it.

Missing Safety Glasses
Every effort was put into safety (fire extinguishers, flame retardant clothing, isolated location etc.) so some of you may be wondering where Myles safety glasses are. He was so excited about the reaction that he stupidly left them in myhis lab coat pocket and did not realise until after the reaction was complete. He apologizes for this is a stupid mistake and doesn’t plan on repeating this mistake.
