Occasionally at my shop after we do machine work on our race motors we will have some fun with the mag filings. One neat trick is to make a small pile (1 inch tall, 2 inches wide) of filings, heat them (not set on fire, just get them good and glowing) with a propane torch, then make sure theres nothing flamable in front of you and kick the pile. The filings will ignite in mid and and give off a brilliant white flash. Might want to wear sunglasses, they flash pretty bright.
Dislaimer: Magnesium burns hot. It sets other stuff (especially other magnesium!) on fire quite easily. Be careful, and it's not my fault if you burn yourself, others, or set something ablaze.
