Not my cuppa (wot with my views on fire breathing an'all)...but I got this e'd to me and I thought there'd be a few firebugs out there keen to do this....
nice one

Hi everyone

At Stonehenge, in two weeks time, there will be an attempt to set the world record for the largest number of fire breathers to breath fire in the same place at the same time. The attempt will be filmed and broadcast as part of The Guinness world records show 50th anniversary episode. The show will go out Internationally and is expected to reach 10 Million viewers!

If you breath fire, and want to be a world record breaker please let me know and I will pass your details onto the right people. This should be happening on August the 26th, so you need to let me know soon if you want to be involved.

What you get:

A great day out in Salisbury, in the company of other fire performers.
A small expenses fee (10).
A certificate from Guinness to say you are a record breaker.
The chance to appear on International television.
The right to call yourself a world record holder!
It is hoped that Guinness might also provide T-Shirts for all the performers to commemorate the occasion.

If you are interested email me on:

From what I heard from Ivan of Ash Circle is that Guinness wont accept attempts for fire breathing because of how dangerous it is. Or something to that effect.

The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."

I believe there's an attempt to break this record being orchestrated at Burning Man this year.

(This is next week!)
