Posted:Dear all, I recently saw a question in a russian poi community in live journal
The question was - quote: "There is a very interesting history of poi on HoP, but there is nothing about the hidtory of fire fans, staff or fire breathing".
Is it possible to create something similar to "the history of poi" about those?
Thanks to everyone

Cheers =)

Posted:couldn't it be traced back to the origins of certain martial arts that use impliments such as a quarter staff?

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:Well, I'd start with the history of fire... Who invented it, where it was invented. Then work my way up from there.

Posted:Fire staff was derived from an ancient Klingon rite of passage I believe.

The origin of fire fans has been linked to the feminist movement of the 60's where women would burn their bras and dance wildly with them. Ah, if I could only go back in time.

Fire breathing came from Japan back when men would dress in hideous dinosaur costumes and crush tiny cities while, you guessed it, breathing fire.

Of course these are just my theories, I could be wrong.
