Well, the experiment was attempted. Have a look at Boardritz playing with the things in the picture gallery.

Simply wire together two metal hanging baskets, to form a sphere about the size of a football. Pack the space with old t-shirts, attach some handles, douse with about 2 litres of paraffin, and away you go. Silly Poi.

If you put these things down, the flames reach about head height. They will singe the hair from your arms and face without coming anywhere near you. They are too heavy to have any control over, and 2 days later I still can't raise my arms above my head. If you hit yourself, the rather hot metal grid (the heat coming off these things melted the solder from the fixings!) will print a neat "chargrilled" mark on your skin.

Have fun.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Those pics are really cool by the way.
