Posted:Ok, it had to be done, so I am doing it.

YOU MIGHT BE A FIRE SPINNER IF:

*You have set fire to your clothes more than three times in your life.

*(Men only) you have hit yourself hard in the nads at least five times in one day.

*You are no longer bothered by the puzzled look on the cashier's face as she rings you up for three cans of white gas and a pack of bic lighters.

*You always have a lighter on you, even though you don't smoke.

*Your idea of a good time is to spend a night making strangers stop and stare at you.

Any others?

Posted:I got a few more,

you've ever set your hand on fire trying to light something else then used your burning hand to light what you were trying to light before ( doubble points if you suceeded)

you've aske your dentist if the fillings/replacments would hold up to exposure to kerosean, staff/ poi blows and high temparatures.

seen a friend blow a fire ball using a bic lighter, then responded by blowing a four foot colum of flame with keroseane and a torch.

compared the taste of vodka or other liquor to the taste of keroseane.

know which liquors burn the best ( double points if you've purchsed alcahol bassed soley on that.

it just isn't christmass untill one of your relatives says "you mean the fire marshals havent arested you yet?"

Posted:You just can't sit still.

I never could, my parents used to take me to classical music concerts and the like and I just fidgetted all the way through. I try to always carry some footbags around to play with if I'm ever waiting for a bus or something. As a last resort, coin rolling.

I remember once (ages ago) juggling in Brixton was cancelled and it said everyone had gone to the pub instead so I headed down and as I sat there rolling coins and fidgetting I was talking about this with a guy called Malcolm. I was saying that I had been totally up for juggling and it was so frustrating being sat here in the pub, how could he just be sitting there so serenely. He just said "look under the table" and sure enough, under the table his feet were beating out an insanely fast rythm on the pub floor.

ubblol I read that as 'fire marshmellows'...it confused the hell out of me why marshmellows would want to arrest us..well other than eating them of coarse but I really don't think they mind all that much anyway.

You might be a firespinner if you have the inability to keep a thread on the topic of spinning for longer than 5 posts...

Posted:i justabout managed the same thing the other week, a newbie spinner was using them to learn with, so i had a go at hyperlooping them to see what they were like to spin with. he now doesn't use them, as he chipped his tooth with them a couple of weks back!
