Posted:WOW! what a day today has been for animosity towards moderators, misundertsandings and a few more serious issues.I'm not here to attack defend or do anything to get me flamed anymore (although I do stand up for what i believe in)This is just to announce that i have blocked and am about to delete a potentially dangerous thread.Before doing this I have emailed a complete copy of the thread to the person who started it, apologising for my actions, and allowing him/her to read all relpies and get the emails of each person who responded to continue the discussion by email.The only reaosn this was done to the thread was to prevent those individuals who we all know are presnet on the web, either children or irresponsible adults, who may ahve used the ideas in it to seriously endanger another person's property, other people or themselves.I consider the topic to be a valid one to discuss between sensible adults, but not suited to being on the web for all and sundry to see.If this situation arises again within a reaosnable context as this thread was, i will do the same thing, so that the information is not lost but given to the individual who started the thread to continue it in another medium.Many thanks for your time...------------------Charles (INFERNO)newdolbel@hotmail.comhttp://juggling.co.nz[This message has been edited by Charles (edited 25 January 2002).]

Posted:Having made and used the device in question, I agree that it is insanely dangerous.I agree that the idea should not even be discussed. The name itself is provocative. Misuse could could have grave repercussions for all fire performers.I applaud your decision to kill the thread.One does not teach killing techniques to white belt beginners.Maximus

Posted:Damn, Now I going to have to come here and read more often than I do now so I won't miss anything. *grumble*------------------Blessings to all, Peter "In motion, move like a thundering wave. When still, be like a mountain.Rising up, be like a monkey. Land swiftly and lightly like a bird. Be steadylike a rooster on one leg. One's stance is as firm as a pine tree, yetexpresses motion. Spin swiftly and circularly like a wheel. Bend and flexlike a bow. Waft gracefully like a leaf in the wind. Sink like a heavy pieceof metal. Prey like a watchful, gliding eagle. Accelerate like a gusty wind." Wushu Proverb

Blessings to all,
Peter
When you find yourself in the company of a halfling and an ill-tempered Dragon, remember, you do not have to outrun the Dragon ...you just have to outrun the halfling.
