Posted:The internet is not the place to ask these questions. Go and see a Doc ASAP. Take the bottle you used with you.



Then, do what Aime said. Don't do it again. Have a look at the fire breathing threads ( http://www.homeofpoi.com/articles/FireBreathing.php
) there and watch "An interview with Pele" ( http://www.homeofpoi.com/articles/firesafetyvideo.php#An
)

Then may I ask why you do it?

If it was me, I'd do it to impress chicks... but it always interest me why people do it...

I personally don't see what's so great about it. "Oh boy.... a column of flame" But with a staff, you get two! Two columns! And if you have large/many wicks, you get phat ones!

And everyone goes ooooo and aaaaa. Plus you're less likely to die.

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."
