What do you use.
My brother is quite partial to making explosives out of shot gun cartridges and accelerant.
His friend who burnt down the local scouthall likes just accelerant(petrol, kero, etc)
And I like to just burn things being grass in a field and then go 50 metres away to watch or things in garbage cans that i stay to moniter.

So when you start fires what do you use, where do you start them and do you use accelerants or mild explosives?

I once wrapped my sisters teddy bear in knewspaper and set it alight - It burned quite well but she wasn't very impressed!

I set fire to my friends history text book in class.
And in year 7 i had a tin of wax and wick in my room that i lit iften enough to stain my walls.
In year 8 i got into trouble for starting fires in bins at school even though it was mid july and had a wind chill factor of -11C and we still weren't allowed inside the schoolbuildings during lunch or recess mad.gif

Er... Does anyone else think that perhaps this isn't a very wise thing to be encouraging each-other to do? Petrol is nasty stuff and the fumes have a habit of getting places that you don't expect, resulting in big explosions when you weren't anticipating them...

I've set myself on fire before, both intentionally and unintentionally.

I've attempted firebreathing, but now actually know how to do it. I lack the neccesary tools to do so, so stay tuned.

Back in the day, we used to make napalm out of gasoline and styrofoam, toilet paper and gasoline, spread it on a ramp and launce off of it with our boards.

I enjoy making controlled fires. It's best done in an open area on dirt in a pit of some kind.

I find deisel or kerosene work better for most pyromaniacal pursuits.

I can make bombs out of household items, however lack the desire to do so.

Gasoline is dangerous stuff, best not to mess with it. Unless you like not having eyebrows.
Some fun things to use are trioxane and sodium. Trioxane are these bars that you can buy at almost any backpacking store, they last 5-10 minutes each and can boil water. Sodium is a metal that lights up when it touches water.

I just like to sit and watch fire. I mean, it's so... random? I mean, in science we've been taught about the whole solid/liquid/gas thing (they've managed to miss out plazma...) but then, I don't get what's the deal with fire... Ummm, I like to light matches and then burn them until it touches my fingers and then I'm like woo and then I sniff the air because the smell is oh so good...

One time I set my hair on fire for a bit and so I had to cut a chunk off becaude it was all smelly and frazzled.

I haven't really had a chance to do much with fire, although I'd like to. My parents are pretty strict about that and if I did anything at school then I'd be pretty dead. But I do get the offchance to set alight newspapers and stuff.

I really want to start doing poi though. I mean, I've seen pictures of when they've been dipped in kerosene and set alight. I have to actually buy some poi first though...

Fire poi are fun, but I have seen more people set themselves on fire with them than anything else (including Jonman), after that it's fire nun-chuks. Get _very_ good at poi before using fire ones.

Yeah I like fire. Wouldn't go far enough to tell people what I do/have done with it incase anyone tries likewise. I may like playing with it and have done for years but i but I still fear and in a way respect it.

Make sure to tie your hair back. All of it. And for the love of nutmeg do not wear a shell suit whilst doing fire poi!


Voices, you can make some easy home made poi with a pair of knee lenght socks and either two tennis balls, or two jugling balls.

Here is a link to Home of Poi & Fire twirling, where there ae lessons and stuff.

Oh, and growing up, we blew a lot of stuff up with M-80s. Hell, fireworks in general were the best thing in the world to us, that and rubbing alcohol.

Here's a good quote from last week: "Set your chest on fire! Set your chest on fire!" I had no rubbing alcohol so it didn't go over well.

Oh, and if you want to use rubbing alcohol, it's best to use alcohol of 70% purity or higher. Otherwise it won't light.

I used to use fire poi, I was also a part of a group called "Fire Bugs" we actually got paid several times for our performances. But I spooked myself when i blacked out from lack of food halfway through a performance and set my trousers on fire. to this day I have no clue how i didn't end up with scars from that.
and i had the most ab fab fire stick made for me by hayden who ran the local performance art company it had the most perfect wieght but it was conficated by the police along with alot of important stuff when they raided the home of Sarah (who's a Goth *spam*) because she was growing weed and they were trying to set up a case around that and the fire stuff to proove that she should have her kids put in care.
and these days i don't play with fire at all cos the rest of Fire Bugs have left town and i don't think it's fun to twirl alone, i don't have shoes the run away in so i can't start grass fires and i don't like to melt the plastic bins near me and the only place that has metal ones is either the high school or the mall which has surveilance cameras mad.gif
ho hum rolleyes.gif


edit another thing to do if you're being safe with fire twirling or poi. Wear a beenie cos you can cover and contain your hair with them and most of them can be pulled down over your eyebrows.

I don't play with fire. EVER!!

I'd love to learn fire twirling and breathing but, as I'm sure I've mentioned before on the forums, I have an uncanny ability to set myself alight.

Uhm....yeah....

When I start a fire it's with good old matches, the wooden ones not booklette ones, and I have some sort of fire pit. I like the smell of burnning leaves or fire wood in the fall but I can't say that I light anything on fire for just kicks and giggles. Although when there is a fire pit going I poke at it with a stick sometimes. Or set my roasted marshmellows on fire.

Is that at burning man? I love fire tornados.

I do fire devil sticks and poi. However I did set my arse on fire spinning poi while drunk.
And I mean my arse, burned a hole in the butt my fav jeans. However getting drunk and putting a lit cig in my pocket was way more funny.

NEVER EVER EVER DO THIS, but my old buddy Phil once drilled a hole in the engine of a model rocket and pured out the powder. He lit it with a long match and the powder blew up in his face. He lost his eyebrows in that incident.

No, if you want to make a really big bang, Francium is the way to go. Although it is one of the most reactive metals, and radioactive. unsure.gif

Are you sure? Unless I'm getting my metals mixed up, sodium only produces hydrogen rapidly when placed in water, and actually needs to be ignited. Potassium downwards is self igniting. As for Francium, I can't say I've had the privelige of seeing some of that go off. Rubidium was mightily impressive (exploding on contact), as was caesium (smashing the large trough the water was in), but frankly, Francium is asking for it.

Right. Now I'd expect that from someone with a cornucopia of hair like you. I've managed to set my hair alight doing fire poi. And my shirt.

Anyway, fire poi is for big girl's blouses. Firebreathing into the wind is where it's at. You didn't need those eyebrows anyway.

Or those corneas.
