Posted:If your a crack head without the need for crack then does that mean you shouldnt do poi?

Yeah ignore my shenanigans...

I set myself on fire once... It was just a tiny bit of my top (the fuzz on a cotton jumper)though nothing scary...

Ciao, Drome

Posted:crack and poi go together very well, you should try it sometime. It is even more fun when you light yourself.

We should do another poll while we are at it:
Who is a pyromaniac? Is that why you spin fire?

Posted:Define "set yourself on fire".....



How about, "I can't count that high"

or "I stopped keeping track after about 20 times"

It is not catching on fire that is bad, it is staying on fire that is bad. Seriouse burns? Just one, cause I didn't spin off my wicks.... dumbass

Posted:Only singed my hair once, never really actually set myself ablaze (Thank Jeebus), I have watched quite a few people start themselves on fire though. Had to save a friend once when he was going through an alternating butterfly routine and got his lit poi hoplessly tangled up in his dreads It didn't help that he'd just put some beeswax in beforehand; kinda made his hair into one giant candle.

I saw a fire juggler on the tellie accidently light his dip bucket on fire, he panicked and kicked his dip bucket and caught the whole room on fire.

And I spun at an open stage fire performance last year where the Orginizers went on without a safety guy (after hours of insisting that everyone else have one) and during a poi routine, directly following a fire breathing routine, some white gas dripped off his poi and set the stage alight and their dip bucket. Those only noticed after we screamed at them for a few minutes (apparently they thought we were cheering, but I don't know where they got that from us screaming "Safety" along with a string of odscenities). Some of you may remember my irate post......
But no, I have never set my self on fire, why do you ask?

Posted:What makes you ask why I ask Tlight? I was curious. I don't remember reading an intro for NeoGeo. Tis all. Like I said it wasn't a diss.

However you define "set on fire". I've never been burnt whilst spinning (and I've been doing it for a while).

Posted:I've never actually set myself on fire, but I've had a couple of singes.
I've done a couple of butterfly double wrist wraps by mistake and ended up with my hands inside a ball of fire, but that just took off the hair on my hands and forearms.
I've smacked myself in the face and head a few times too, usually because I get a bit complacent after having a couple of burns with no problems. I end up stinking of burnt hair with a very thinned out eyebrow, or something very similar.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Drew there swords and Shot each other.

Posted:BEWARE!

All contact staffers who use two wicks! I have seen products of a split second contact with a fire head on my friend's upper arm... Second degree burn znd it was only on there for a second (well maybe two)...

Be careful whith the placement as you might get burned...

Otherwise I havent heard of many BIG incidents with fire...

Follow safety precautions meninos!

Much love and hugs, drome

Posted:so NeoGeo.... all those times when I was on fire, (but the flame went out befor it hurt me) Don't count? And those times I got burned by the metal on my poi and staff don't count either?

That is good to know, now I don't feel so bad.

So, in that case, I've only caught myself on fire once....on the back, got a nice 2nd degree burn, big too.

But there are four occasions that are the most memorable, The first one where I caught my hair on fire...(stinky)
The second where I caught my pants on fire..(showing off for hot guy...Instant karmic kick in the butt ego girl!!!)
the third where I grabbed the stick right at the end with a poorly judged catch...my hand had nice 2nd degree burns. (didnt twirl for a while after that one)
and the fourth where I stood on a red hot poi just after a twirl in barefeet!!!! Didnt see it... OMG that hurt!!! Right on the soft part of my foot...got called hopalong for a while....
