"Most people on this forum know the dangers of Fire Breathing and have made their own choices concerning whether or not to do it.

For any random people who have stumbled across this thread I think it's important to be aware that there are safety issues with breathing so here's some good links to the official HOP article on fire breathing, and a recent thread on some of the medical implications: -

Lastly, I'd like to say that one of the most important things when Fire Breathing is a very good level of mental focus and concentration, obviously these are compromised to some extent when breathing is done in conjunction with another activity, such as spinning.

So be careful, and, if you're new to this, check out the above links."

That way you don't have to worry about the stick getting slippery because you'll be finished after the breathe.


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.
