Posted:Firebreathing is very cool, easy to pick up, very hard to do skillfully and extremely dangerous. Do not teach yourself, get someone experienced to show you the ropes and do comprehensive research on where other performers have gone wrong with it (who are now dead or have permanent injuries). Good luck

Posted:I agree with Byron. Fire Breathing is very dangerous and although is impressive, you need to be careful.



Well done though! I remember the 1st time i did it and i felt so good from doing it. But since spenidng more time looking at the dangers of it and stuff i have only done it one night and never again. I feel much happier just spinning biggrin

Just buy your self a staff, and do burn offs. Same thing, and less "yo dude! You're dead!"

Posted:your appreciation is most encouraging. i have done some research on the topic and it is still under way. im trying to contact two or three people in pakistan who might be able to help. but the problem is that there is NO ONE here in pakistan who does ANY FIRE ART WHATSOEVER. i am aware of the dangers and do my best to take all necessary precautions.

THANKS PEOPLE! hug

Posted:I used to do things like 10 M tall explosions every weekend for most of my teenage years , but when it comes to fire breathing 7 spits over 2 nights was more than enough to decide to quit while I'm still alive. True, it feels great to have done it, but the acute danger and long term health effects just are not worth the risk.



Try fire walking instead, it's a stronger adrenalin hit and it's safer, and you dont have to shut your eyes to do it so you get to see it yourself , not just see a red flash of light.

Posted:petrol is severely explosive dude, will never try that. i use kerosene diluted wid ethanol and water which lowers the flash point of the fuel and is also less toxic.

u did petrol????
scareeeeeee

Posted:Some people have interpereted my previous (now edited) post to have refered to having breathed fire with petrol . This is not the case as any such activity is 100% gaurenteed to set yourself on fire and is totally unsafe , and is totally imposible to make safe iether.

The 10M tall explosions mentioned involved the still highly dangerous practice of imersing an epoxy coated explosive device into a 4L bucket of petrol and detonating it electrically from a distance of about 30M away. There was ment to be an explanatory picture but it did not attach properly.

This was to provide a somewhat safer practice to compare the highly dangerous activity of fire breathing against, definitly not to imply that I safely breathed 10M collums of fire with petrol for many years, this is definitly not the case at all. The small amount of fire breathing I did involved D60 and kerosene, fuels that reduce the least signifigant health threat of fire breathing, namely burning alive, but attenuate none of the more serious dangers such as the fatal or permanently debilitating consequences of inhaleing fuel .

Sorry for any confusion, fire breathing with anything at all is totally unrecomended. As for explosives, if you use safe equipment and know what your doing (assuming you survive getting that knowledge in the first place) then your fine untill you make your first mistake, but the consequences of that mistake will be fatal, in the case mentioned above, death by fire.

Take the advice of a semi reformed pyromaniac and if you cant escape an adiction to playing with fire, take up fire twirling as a way of living a little bit longer as it's the first step in overcoming a fixation with fire. That said , I can give up any time I want to, it's just that I dont want to give it up.

Posted:My first firebreathe went quite well until the guy who taught me set his face on fire after applying Vaseline to his beard area to prevent chapped skin.



My first thought was 'Hmmmmm. 'Vaseline? As in 'Petroleum Jelly'? Is that wise?' But he claimed to have used it before. So I didn't say anything. 10mins later I was chatting to others at the poi meet when someone shouted 'SOMEONE'S FACE IS ON FIRE!!!!'. I turned around and there was the guy his beard was alight and he was furiously trying to smother the small flames with his hands. Suddenly the flames engulfed his face and I was frozen to the spot and couldn't think of how to help him (with a calm rational mind I would have undid my coat and tried to smother it with that but I wasn't calm and rational then).



I can't remember how we managed to put it out but I remember Lee (dragar/fire fairy liquid) ran to him and did SOMETHING. The guy deserves a medal or something for staying calm and know what to do when the rest of us looked on paralysed in horror.



In the end all he had was a slightly red nose and a case of the shakes but he was fine (he had a bit of a smoke afterwards as he clearly needed it!) but a visit to the A&E was in order just to make sure.



I would've just gone with the chapped skin myself...
