Posted:last night i had a very large urge to spin fire...so i did and i had fun. but that bairly makes up for my own stupidity. after i was finish i had returned my fuel to the can and the little left in the pitcher i was using to soak i dump on the driveway and lit it on fire. that was all good till the fire jumped back into the pitcher. and for one reason i though it would do good to blow into it to make it go out.....and thus is why i am stupid. it did the opposite and blew back into my face. and now about 12 hours later my face is still kinda stinging. no i did not really hurt myself but i think i lost most of my nose hair...just a little warning for everyone that fire is weird. the flame had to have jumped at least four feet is why i was so freaked out. but im okay and should have my pics up of my fire and glowsticks. i got a few really good ones, but at a painful price....

Posted:ok the fire wasnt being weird, for fire you need fuel and oxygen and a flame/spark. you had the flame and fuel in your cup, if you add extra oxygen by blowing air into it ......

on the plus side nose hairs are unsightly so yay

if your face is still stinging after 12 hours you must have burnt yourself really really bad, u did add something cold to your face for a while after right? ive been engulfed by burnoffs on several occasions and ive only ever had the stinging last for 4 hours at most and that was when i did one without throwing the stick up and having the wind change direction with big wick .... for future reference if you burn yourself really badly leave the burn body part under running cold water (cold shower if u have to) for atleast 10 mins then put a cold damn rag on the burn body part and leave it on for atleast half and hour after (keep redampening it to keep it cold) its annoying to have to do it but it majorly reduces the severity of the burn.

if your at a remote location and you burn urself really badly water on a piece of clothing over the burn and sit in the back seat of the car with the windows down (assuming you have a driver) and the cold air flowing over your body will help (not heaps)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:I too made that mistake when I started doing fire, a fuel tin caught fire, so I blew on it to put it out and got engulfed by a fireball.

Really scarey stuff...

Sharing the story (like you have done) is the best way for us to help prevent others making the same mistake...
