We’re at the point in life where we’d rather not have a birthday candle to represent every year we’ve been alive. But members from the Sri Chinmoy Center turned their cake into a bonfire with a whopping 72,585 candles on top. CO2 fire extinguishers let the cake remain edible.

We’ve seen plenty of smoky burnouts, but these guys took things to another level by spinning the tires of a dragster in a pool of flaming gasoline. It’s a short clip, but like the old saying goes, “The flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long.”
