Posted:Yup i have three times in fact and all while pissed (now theres a lesson for everybody)

I call them
The Bandanna Incident : i messed up a butterfly and was wearing a NYLON bandanna
The Jacket Incident : open jacket with a frayed bits on the inside
AND FINALY
The "I'M NEVER FIRE BRETHING WITH CALITE EVER AGAIN" Incident : take a wild guess needless to say i lost my beard with that one

Luckily for me none of them were serious and i managed to put all flames out very quickly and since no real harm was done i get to laugh about them nowadays and pull out the line "but I've only ever set myself on fire 3 time"


May my balls of fire set your balls on fire devil

Posted:No, I haven't personally, but have seen the results of a friend spinning staff whilst a little bit too high 1 night a while back.



He had burns up his shoulder, side of his face a bit and his doctor gave him codeine's for it for a month.

Never mind he lost some of his long locks biggrin



That kinda made me a bit paranoid for a little bit



Edit: Now we shouldn't be spinning whilst off our faces eh? rolleyes wink


Are you up for it?

Posted:I was spinning off my poi once and got fuel on my sock"twas wearing shorts" And then while duing a low turn i set it on fire. The whole mess resulted in a rather nasty second degree burn.

Posted:Yep... many times. The funniest was when I managed to nock my hat off and create a little flame on my head. i looked like a large candle. It didn't hurt but when my mate finally mentioned it I brushed my hand through my hair, put the fire out and came away holding half of my hair in my hand... It did not smell nice!

Posted:yeah.. infront of 5000 people at the first Levellers festival.. set my skirt on fire.. although.. can I just say.. I was a consumate professional... I didn't stop spinning, just walked over to the fence where my friend undid my skirt and took it off me.. and then I went back to formation - GO TOAST...

the dialog was much funnier than the visuals tho..
her - Stix your skirt is on fire
me - oh yeah, shhhhh don't tell anyone
her - come here and I'll take it off
me - ok.. yadda yadda..
her - cool ok, you're good
me - do you think anyone noticed?
her - naaaa.... course not..

but you had to be there I guess..
lol

the loose weave on the very outside caught and burned right off with the tight main weave was fine
