Florida Man Turns Water Into Fire

Yeah, it would be "something." In fact, it would be, in another choice John Kanzius word, "neat." Although the Miami Herald picked up this story from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, it attributes this most amazing discovery to a Pittsburgh man when in actuality, Mr. Kanzius is a semi-retired modern Prometheus living on the west coast of Florida. It seems one day when Kanzius was trying to discover a way to fight cancer and desalinate sea water with an RF energy field in his garage, he accidentally set the water on fire. To see water turn into fire and to learn more, please click here for the most amazing science lesson of your life. Kanzius rockets straight to the top of the field as a nominee for MVB's most prestigious "MVB Big Idea of the Year Award." Way to go, John Kanzius! And remember this: the idea that saved the world came from a guy who lives in...Florida.

The thought that Kanzius might have actually stumbled onto something that may save the planet makes us want to get up and dance. It also makes us think about Arthur Brown-- a Brit rocker we're sure Kanzius danced to when he was a much younger man. Although he was a one-hit wonder, he influenced bands like Kiss and Alice Cooper. His sole hit was way back in '68 called "Fire" and, thanks to modern science and YouTube-- the same kind of alchemy Kanzius is working with in his garage-- we get to see it in all of its surreal weirdness. If you're like us at MVB, we will use any little positive sign that things are going to get better for an excuse to dance, so please, get up and shake your thang.

This is absolutely amazing. Mr. Kanzius needs to start calling people at MIT or locally at UM to study this a lot more deeply and commercialize this ASAP.

Armando, according to this article, Kanzius has already met with the Dept of Energy and Defense.

I remember watching this on tv. I had no idea he was living in Florida.
