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:Awesome thread!

...if the elevator door opens at work and people stare at you buzzsawing inside it with your keys and your access card.

...you've ever sat infront of a sewing machine for 4 hours making poi for your girlfriend. (they look awesome, by the way)

...you've ever heard your mother bragging on the phone to her friends:'you should see my son's new hobby'

You look at building machinery and think 'antispin'

also...you might be a spinner if most of your holidays are planned around meeting up with people to spin firey things...

(no really...my last three holidays involved common ground 06, christmas/new years 05/06 trip to melburp (included sunday spin), & common ground 05!!) ubblol


do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!
