    Yeah. I didn't. At the bowling alley my buddy threw a couple packets in an ash tray and I lit it. Wow, what a flame. Scared the living shit outa me. Good thing we were in the far corner so we didn't draw too much attention, but a big poof with a decent sized flame is hard to hide.

    The next morning I looked at my lighter and it had white chunks of that powder like fused to the metal base of the lighter. I damn near needed a chizzle to get them off.

    I tried just holding the flame there for a longass time hoping they'd melt off but it just made it worse. I'm so awesome.

    I'll never forget 4th of july this past year. Pennsylvania has these ridiculous codes for firework usage and sales, so our selection sucks. We got so bored we took the remaining pile of fireworks, doused them in lighter fluid, and lit them up. Now THAT was entertainment, but also scary. I was in the back yard about 50 feet away and one fired up in the air and came right at me.

    I also wrote my name in lighter fluid in cursive writing in the driveway and lit it. Now that was f'n cool.

    I like fire.

    So I was at my buddy's today, sittin on the back porch with a beer and a cigar. MMMM great night. Anyway I lit a stick on fire until it was red hot, and watched the flame go out. I gently blew on the stick, and it magically caught fire again.

    I'm a magician.

    Sweet. Love playing with fire. I say it's more fun to roast a stick than a marshmallow anyway.

    I had a lot of fun dousing live fireworks with lighter fluid and watching them go boom all at once last July. :)

    I actually have one big burly unibrow.


    Well, not really. But wouldn't that be the shit?

    I actually have never been severely burned when playing with fire. You see when I lit the pile of fireworks on fire with lighter fluid, I was kinda smart about it. I sprayed a straight line of lighter fluid on the driveway about 15 feet away and lit that and ran like hell. By the time the fire ignited the rest of the pile, I was a goooood distance away... but I still got a few spinners and shit that blew straight up, landed by me, and spun around with these disco lights.

    Fun stuff.

    As a kid I liked to put just a little carbide in a whiskey
    bottle put an ounce of water in it put the lid on fast and throw it
    it was like a hand grenade going off
