I So Want To Try This...

....as soon as I see someone else do it without getting hurt. I may have been a bit of a pyromaniac when I was a kid, but I'm still not comfortable about holding things on fire in the palm of my hand. 

(via Cynical-C, among others)


Update: I've tried it, and it was indeed cool. I'm not as brave as the guy in the video and the ball was more of a square with some string around it. I'm guessing the closer to a sphere you get the less likely the string will catch fire and burn your hands. Lemme know if anyone has better luck / gets injured.

Smurfs. And links that open in a new tab. And more links. And more smurfs. And wheres Giuliani on the poll? I dont care that he dropped out. And Nader too.

I love Bush. I wish that he was my father.

Genius. I can't wait to hurt myself. Lighting pretty much anything on fire is good, but this is greatness.

It was round until you stepped on it. Next time make your own flaming fun balls.

I might be able to have links open in a new window, but no Smurfs for now. As for the poll- I was limited to 6 options and took the frontrunners. Nader says he may very well run, especially if Hilary gets the nomination. I'm glad you love Bush, rick. When people give me a look of disgust when I tell them I'm from the 'States I usually tell them I'm Bush's best friend forever. As for this post: let me know if you try it knifey and sorry roundy for stepping on your flaming fun ball, and thanks for actually making it because I wouldn't have been able to find thread.
