I've heard that magnesium burns so hot that it separates the hydrogen and oxygen which is why water doesn't work and is so dangerous. I'm not sure if this is correct however I've tried it and it definitely does something

When I was in AMT school one our Instructors said that you could tell which fighters in the night during WWII were American or German when they went down by the color of the Engine Burn. The Crankcases (Engine Blocks) Were made of Magnesium on the Germans side while the Americans used other metals.

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*
