The incredible Singularity Machine.
A jet of fire shoots from a hole in the ground,
while a ring of fans creates an air vortex. Two madmen in silver suits
stand near the base, with flamethrowers, feeding more fuel into the fire.
They can make the tornado grow, shrink, and dance in beautiful twisting patterns.
It looks alive. When they really turn on the juice it can get much larger
than you see here, and incredibly hot, making the
spectators cower and retreat.

This may be my favorite thing at Burning Man.
