Posted:Any of use fire breathers or fire eaters cos I wanna meet those kind of people for synchronised fire action. I've tried busking and if u do it right u can earn a serious amount of money, simply cos ure risking serious injury. What an opportunity...!

Posted:Are you ok, Pyro?

You don't seem to be making much sense today? People don't care if firebretahing is dangerous or not, that's a decision for the fireperformer to make.

Maybe it's just been one of those days...sorry if I'm coming across all negative, but this and your last post are starting to worry me.

Take care of yourself, and remember, NO amount of money is worth your health...

Posted:There's an article posted here on HoP called "A Season in Hell" . It is about what you are concidering doing and I recommend HIGHLY that you read it. There is alot of information in it. THere is also a Fire Breathing FAQ here you might want to check out.

As for if there are any, sure. And conciderably less since the amount of accident happening seem to be on the rise.
Do a search and you will find more fire breathers and information on the topic than you can shake a torch at.
Overall I am inclined to agree with Charles in thinking this does not sound like something thoroughly thought through.

Regards

Posted:Yes. i'm do a little too much fire breathing but if you are being a little sarcastic i think i understand your drift. I'm currently living near manchester, what's is your plan?
But (don't take this as condecending please) if you think a bit of fire out the mouth and a lot of pounds in the pocket i would recommend you take a step back and look at what you are proposing.
So, please elaborate.

Posted:as i do this for a living, i dont get your point?

what a post, cant understand why its not been deleted....

totally the wrong attitude to fire breathing, but far the most common.
in the real world of fire performance, yeah you may earn more breathing, but you live a lot longer not breathing.

be safe....

It hasn't been deleted because I knew you guys would come in and give some helpful advice and stuff that may give him pause for thought....

Hopefully...He doesn't seem to be around much anymore either...and he might be she, so I'll stop babbling and put this in Social....
