Posted:i know most of you will say this is dangerous, but, come on, we spin fire here.

i was rooting around the supermarket today and i bought a can of BINACA breath freshener (its a spray) for when i've just eaten onions and want to go out on the town. Anyway, I looked at the ingredients and saw alcohol and isobutane were the first two. I also noticed that the freshener came out in pulses, minimizing the possibility of the famed "back draft" all the hairspray enthusiasts fear. I immediately put some gloves on(duh) and got my lighter out. I figured out that I could light wicks at 3-4 feet, and that it left a minty scent(rather than hairspray's burning cat smell) I want to turn this into a one handed reloadable deal, using a refillable electric lighter, and the binaca. it would have to be cool, one handed, relatively safe, and all parts would have to be easily refillable. it would also have to be one piece and inexpensive. if anyone wants to try, this could add a lot to the beginning of a show. also could work as a breathing substitute.


Q:What's the difference between the Great Highland Bagpipes and the Northumbrian Pipes?
A:The Great Highland Pipes burn longer.

Posted:hmm i've heard of the binaca thing before the guy who taught me how to breathe fire has breathed fire with that before instead of paraffin cuz he wanted some small blows but i've never tried it before but interesting what your saying.
