Posted:Found this link on Spherculism posted by Achluophobia and imo is quite interesting when dealing with "safety" and responsibility for ones own actions. Closely related to the Should Children Spin with Fire thread. Should people play with fire in general?

Insane imho

Posted:If anyone can it's my mate simon. he's a fireman who does fire staff.
Says he feels a bit of a hypocrite on school visits telling kids not to play with fire knowing he's off out later to have a burn ubblol

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
