Okay, about the eating torch...let's back track a bit. Take out the screws. They will heat up and hurt you *when* (not if) it touches your tongue, roof, lips, etc. Mouth burns suck. You can wrap the rope in a way that tightens down and ties off so you don't have to worry about metal bits. You can also coat the entire thing in white school glue. It hardens in heat which means the more you use it the less likely it is to fall apart. Also, be careful when Fire Eating. Wet your lips enough so that they are protected when they close on the torch for smothering. Aluminum heats up ****really**** well.

Good luck!
