Great. L do this in my next training camp

it is great

wow,, so amazing!!!!!!
gonna try this..
nyehehe...

where can u get the ligher fuel, please tell me

1)get a 100% cotten
2)tied with string without needle
3)put zippo lighter fuid and burn it..
4) it burned my hand

i'm going to use this in my film, thanks

does this work on zippo lighter fliud?

sorry for the double post..but i burned my hand doing this experiment
...so can u explained wad did i do wrong?
1)get a 100% cotten
2)tied with string without needle
3)put zippo lighter fuid and burn it..
4) it burned my hand

dude just take note that the STRING is a COTTON string. NEVER forget that.

did you make sure to dry your hands after soaking the cotton in the fuel . if there is any fuel on your hands it will burn you.

Hey magnus fate,

Sorry u got burned -
i didn't make the video but I'm told that zippo fluid burns too hot too quickly to be used in this. You want to use normal lighter fluid (butane?) that doesn't burn as hot - and also make sure you keep your hands moving try using cold water on your hands too.

Could u dilute the fluid using water?

no the water would insta boil and explode kind of like testing the temperature of oil on the stovetop

dat was cool but when i tried it i got burned i used odorless charcoal lighter fluid

This does not work. I used the exact lighter fluid he used and it burns very hot. You will definitely burn your hands.

Try using a mix of lighter fluid and pure spirit,,,you can buy spirit in a pharmacy...try doing a combination of 60%spirit and 40% lighter fluid. Also do not put too much of the mix onto those clothballs, try putting a little at first and if everything works out, then you could scale it up.

Awesome. Combine this with the colored fire tutorial and it'd be twice as good.

Btw find the colored fire tut here:

HoHo CooL!

That's pretty cool bro, thought there was going to be more to it but amazed at the simplicity.

Great effect! I'm a professional magician and can use this idea, thanks. Years ago as a kid we put the fluid on our hands. Didn't get burrned, just warm. I am not suggesting anyone do this without knowing the limitations and handleing of fire props.

wow that cool
i wonder if it burn ur hand

It worked like a charm! :))

Really? How?Not for me...

mix lighter fluid with pure spirit (ethanol)...you can buy spirit in a pharmacy...I don;t think that rubbing alcohol will work too good, so try to buy alcohol (spirit/ethanol) that is used in hospitals to disinfect wounds and medical tools. It should be 96 or 98 % alcohol. When you acquire spirit from the pharmacy, mix it with lighter fluid: 60% spirit and 40% alcohol, should give you a more gentle flame.

Hi I also tried this the exact same way and it to burned hot, could hold it for a while till the ball got hot then had to drop it, anyone know if butane works better for this?

you do the lords work

hi.. i'm not good in eglish , so can u please explain what is lighter fuel?

thats a liquid that you put in to a lighter...

shut up dickhead he just said hes NOT GOOD AT ENGLISH, not everyone grew up speaking english, and nest to madrine is the hardest second language in the world to learn.

lol now that's just stupid as well... English is by far not a hard language to learn......maybe look at finnish or hungarian

WRONG. it is the hardest second language in the world simply because of the amount of exceptions and weak rules there are. no other language is as contradictory or circumstantial.

sheesh. I know mandarin and English and trust me mandarin is much harder... I bet disel45645 is just trolling.

You jackass who do you think you are the guy who said that said he wasent good at English.


Bitch.

sorry for double posting but that was directed toward disel45645

i think i'll try this

I made it using zippo lighter fuel and it's hot. I couldn't keep it in one hand for more than 3 or 4 seconds...

awe-some!!!

this site, and this vid..gotta try this!!!!

ouch !!! ffs i jus tried this and i burnt my hand to #$%@....i rly shud have read the comments shudnt i?

LOL OWNED

haha

soak your hand in cold water before you hold it. its obviously gonna be somewhat hot but i think its more of a mental than physical heat. Holding a ball of fire isn't a normal thing for most of us so you have to get used to it. also, DO NOT soak the ball too much otherwise the flaming fluid will drip onto your hands which does burn htem :P

Okay, I tried it. Couldn't wait. Got burned. Even soaked my hands in cold water first. After reading the comments I thought "Oh, these people just THOUGHT they would get burned because it probably does get a little uncomfortably hot but not enough to actually get burned. If I just start with cold hands & keep it moving etc., I'll be fine. I can take a little intense heat. Blah, blah..." - WRONG! So, you're obviously leaving something out of the equation here. Come on now, you've had your fun. It's been posted about nine months. What's the REAL secret? My fingers still sting!

People, the only reason you think it burns is because the slightest heat you feel makes you think you WILL burn. It's instinctive that you immediately drop the ball(the fireball) but it doesn't burn. It's in your mind. You gotta think positive & you can't let the ball rest in one section of your palm. You have to move it around. Trust me coz I tried this last week with plain household rubbing alcohol & it works. The blue flame feels warm so I'm assuming it's the orange flame that burns. Try rubbing alcohol instead although it burns shorter than lighter fluid. Have fun!

dude i wqas trynna say tye same ting but in a different way i did mit with mythalated spirits(add water to ball 4 blue flame no water for orange)it doesnt actualy burn to bad the orange flame is a little hotter though

You WILL get burned if you follow the instructions exactly as in the vid! There is some additional secret to this that isn't included here. Probably a chemical protectant for the skin. Please God, I MUST know!

uhmmm i heard that petroleum jelly on your hands makes it not hot, maybe try that if ur willing to lol

dude, petroium jelly is made from, and into oil.

that doesn't sound so non-flammable

make a 50 50 mix of rubbing alcohol and water dip your hands in it then do then light the fire ball

blade93, dude, "try to buy alcohol spirit ethanol". 60% spirit and 40% alcohol, don't you mean 60% lighter fluid? If spirit=ethanol=alcohol
Repeated, generously shared, but still unfollowable bro

well, spirit = 98% ethanol & 2% water
Ethanol=100% ethanol
alcohol=40-60% ethanol & the remaining percentage is water.
All of the above are fuel, just of different concentration of actual ethanol.

i can't belive u were stupid enough to try it man, all of u read this it is absalutly stupid but it may look cool but still dangerous and never do this if u live near a peral station or oil refinery!
(p.s i may have spelt a few words wrong but please try and work it out)

...you would have to be like inside the refinery for ot to catch,..

haha......never ginna try this cause after reading da comments......NO WAY!!!

how u get a pink thingy as ur photo

i never got chance to try this T_T..i want to try it too!!!

i realy burned your hand ?!!!
daaaaam i think im not going to try this one !!
teeh ! ...........no chance ........

never done it b4, but i can tell its awsome

Back in elementary school I did this trick where you soak cloth in water, add alcohol (for fuel) and lit it on fire. You get fire but it doesn't burn the cloth. Try soaking the ball in water and then add the fuel. If that doesn't work, you have a fire ball that doesn't burn and so what if you can't hold it. You shouldn't be playing with fire anyway. :)

burn the #$%@ out of your hands. i spen 10 gay bucks on the materials. waste of time.

Maybe his hands or fingertips were covered in that clear liquid bandaid stuff? Nuskin or something... It seems like that would provide a little protective layer maybe.

i tried it and i added my own thing after reading the comments, i found out that you can use non flammable styling gel, just rub it on your hands like lotion, it worked great for me. Go Pyros!!!

decent

this is awsome i wanna do it but i dont wanna get burned any tips???

its okay i did this ages ago your to late i already do it perfectly

wow dude, he tries to help you and you're rude to him...

got burned xD I used liquid gas from a lighter

???????????

There is another video on metacafe
Just like burticus said, soak de cotton on water (you can use a normal cotton for wounds), and put some water on your hands. I used common alcohol (ethanol 95%).
cheers

ok ta for da info it will help

btw i used cotton like the medical stuuf an i wet it with water but i used methylated spirits in it instead of lighter fuel. but it burns quickly and runs out but i didnt get burned although it is a littel hot

Spirit evaporates quickly...thats why it ran out very quickly in your case...mix lighter fluid with pure spirit (ethanol)...60% spirit and 40% alcohol, should give you a more gentle flame and a decent amount of time to play around...when you start feeling the flame getting warmer...close you hands to cut of oxygen supply to the fireball and add more spirit to make the flame gentle again.

sweet thanks dude i never thought of usin 60-40alcohol as i thought it would really raise te temp alot

damn this blade guy has way to much time comment so many times saying the same thing

i made my own one and it burnt the cotton so i pussied out, problem is i cudnt put it out lol, can to like stab it with a knife and put it in my fish pond xD

blade 93.....you really should stop commenting repeatedly, posting the same wrong information.......at least get your basic chemistry right....alcohols are a class of organic compounds....ethanol is an alcohol....ethanol forms an azeotropic mixture with water which means it's harder to distill pure ethanol from its mixture with water.....your whole spirit alcohol thing is annoying and wrong

that must suck did you try puttin non flammable hair on your hands and it onlys burns the cotton slightly

well, I suppose the secret is the amount of fuel you use. If the fuel remain inside the ball, the flames won´t burn you. I shall made a try.

Sounds reasonable!

What is this spirit stuff??

spirit is used in medicine to disinfect tools, wounds and other stuff. Spirit is basically a mixture of ethanol and water, 98 or 96 % ethanol (alcohol) and 2 or 4 % water. When you acquire spirit from a pharmacy, mix it with lighter fluid: 60% alcohol (spirit or ethanol or call it which ever name you like its all the same stuff) and 40% lighter fluid, these proportions should give you a more gentle flame.

Ok. What pharmacy did you get your spirit from?

that is sick!!!! so awesome!!!!!!! i fooled my friend and i said that i could not get burned when i touch it!!!!! i love the idea!!!!! A+++

looks cool but the comments arnt to good

ur not wrong there

If I'm going to try this, I would like to know the following things:

What is the best lighter fluid to use?

Should I rub something on my hands?

If so, what?

ok
1)i used mythelated spirits instead
2)try rubbing non-flammable hair gel on ur hands
put some water on it first aswell

methylated...this is why something like this shouldn't posted for the whole web to see.....what if some dumbass troll buys methylated spirits and thinks they're just alcohol and drinks it then dies...i'm sure there's a bunch of underage people roaming around these websites

This is so awesome..i love fire play and this would be awesome to use..thanks!

i burned my house joke hahaha my hand hurts

Use a pair of non flammable gloves hehe

The point of this trick is to hold the flaming ball in your hands, anyone can put a fireproof glove on and play with fire.

Okay, i signed up just for this and ill probably never visit this site again, but anyway...

I did this a different way but it works better in terms of not getting burnt. Make the same cotton ball in this video or you could use a scrunched up tissue (but BE CAREFUL, at the end it may catch on fire).

You have to make a mix of 1/2 methylated spirits & 1/2 water. You may have to experiment using a bit more methylated spirits because sometimes there is too much water.The water stops you getting burnt.

You have to do this at night though as the flame is invisible during the day. Have fun :)

ok mthis is what i did but i used cotton not tissue it gives a kinda smallish blue flame but leave out the water and its bright yellow-orange colour and its big
i did this ages ago and i put some water on the ball then myth spirits instead of mixing it

my hand was burnt really bad,then i'd used regular lighter fuel and burnt myself again

dude you should hav thrown them

y man y throw them?

I found the secret you must dump out some lighter fluid from the bottle and fill the difference with water. like two parts fluid one part water. I tried and it works but I don't know the exact measurements but I know that it takes dumping some fluid out adding some water and mixing it.

dude, that vid is so freakin' awesome. The only question isj for me, " Does the fire at the bottom at the ball burn your hand? Please email me at jewishguy96. Please consider this because i amj extremely interested in this vid. Thank you.

rubbing alchohol definitely wont work. Trust me, i tried it.

I thought it would not thats why i said, "I don;t think that rubbing alcohol will work too good"

What i got from all these?
1)You have to use a 100% cotton cloth
2)Make a mix of water and lighter fuel(or alcohol), approx. 3/5 fuel, and 2/5 water,
3)Put non-flamable gel in your hands, or cold water
4)Keep the ball moving, and don't touch the red high flame, otherwie you'll get burned
5)To put the fire out, close your hands so there is no combastion.
6)Don't put too much of the mix on the ball, or it will get in your hands too.
I hope this will help you understand what this is about. :D

Yep, you just summed it up right there. At least some people read ALL the comments before putting down the same thing as the person before them. I got burned the first time, i will try the water/lighter fluid combo, and the cold water. Thank you.

Could someone please tell me what is methylated spirits? I don't know what it is actually in my language... Btw, mental work could help a lot. Cheers

you dont really need methlated spirits just alcohol thats mixed with water 3/5 alcohol and 2/5 water (more info above)

this is so cool and simple im gonna do it for my science fair!

i wish i could try it but my parents r so gay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tell your parents to go to #$%@ off and let you experience the world around you...tell them you are learning about physics and chemistry...

where can you buy lighter fluid?????

Hardware stores,gas stations,places like that.

or where do you buy methylated spirits???? how do they look like?

Pharmacy's and hospitals.XD

dude i lost my hand, doing this trick jk lol but it worked when i did it on the second time, it depends on how much lighter fuel u put

true just enough to make the top wet... if you notice in the video, the guy put a bit too much, so you can see some of the gas residue burning :P happened to me just close your hand and wipe it on your shirt

blade I don't undestarnd you. common alcohol is ethanol and spirit is also ethanol, so you're burning 100% ethanol. Unless "spirit" is something else - I live In Chile :P
I used ethanol 80% and cold water in my hands first
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxXvIkn2PK4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxXvIkn2PK4

spirit is ethanol that is used to make vodka...Mixing spirit and lighter fluid will give a different substance that will burn longer and the flame is going to be of normal size and gentle to touch.

Dont forget, that both liquids, spirit and lighter fluid, evaporate and those evaporates actually burn. Spirit evaporates much faster than lighter fluid and spirit also burns much more smoothly than lighter fluid...If you look closely at the video, you will see that the color of the flame is blue next to his hands, white in the middle and orange at the top...Do some research concerning the chemistry of spirit and lighter fluid. Also try to read about chemical equations and how the two mix together...look for "chemical equations calculator" http://www.trimen.pl/witek/calculators/wspolczynniki.html
it should help you determine the best proportions for the mix.

Used to make vodka.lol

i just added a little water and it helped alot

ive only got some wood alcohol, will it still work? and were doo you buy butane?!?

all I have is wood alcohol, will it still work? and were can I buy butane? would parafin work?

what's the point?

i never thought of holding a fireball lol:)

cool dude.. I'm fro the Philippines and I've seen someone trying this but it was damn hot.. i now know the secret of not getting burned.. tanx dude 60% ethanol den 40% butane..

wicked sick!

dude this thing kicks ass!!!!

i had fun making this(:
i burned my hand a bit but later i realized its because i used too much fluid.
thank you for posting this(:

Would white spirit work?

for more safety, before burning use some acetone on your hand.

acetone ??? are you insane? Acetone is flammable...

aceton : the simplest ketone; a highly inflammable liquid....

tthatt waz great!! wont try it cos my parents won tlt me but wil sugest it to my head of science... he might do it for a laugh... a level chemistry is so fun in yr 8!

yh im a level standard, gcse is so borin!! EASY
A* all the way

all my results were A*!!! all 20 of them and my A levels were A* and im only yr 8!

noobs

yh im great! im starin degrees and phds on tuesday! im soooo great!!!! im smarter than all of u

YH well u know i have 20 GCSE A*'s AND % ALVEL A*'S AND IM STARTIN DEREES IN 1 YEAR

you have to make the ball have no loose ends. or it will catch on fire. its the gas thats suposed to burn not the cotton.

about that dude who burned himself:
wet your hands a LITTLE before using
too much will douse the fireballs
just a suggestion, havent tried it yet
i love this tut
love
? it
?
(? and ? found using charmap type into start menu to view)

dang heart and smiley face not working...

Acetone... yeah...
VERY SAFE.(sarcasm[duh])

u lot r so dumb!!! u should try askin mii for advice, im in yr 8 and im stuin at university level aready!! u lot are all so cheap and rubbish!!! ur idiots! no offence. now respond to this message or i will keep typin stuff up

i did the achohole thing whith non flamible hair gell and held untill it burt it self out i did get hot but did not burn

Threw it to my classmate :D

i did the same :D but they thew it and nearly burnt down the school haha

saw the clip, the #$%@ was tight. also tryed it worked for me. dont see why you cats cant get it.?

OMG WOW dude listen to this guy he knows what he is talking baout. i lit ball and fire and left on table and kept poking it, it felt real hot and i was sceared i later got a little braver andf after letting it burn 50-70% i put it in my hand and kept it moving and i din't get burned just don't move it in one hand for to long.

For those of you who got burned, thats ur own fault. Be smart and dont try it on ur hand first, thats just retarded. light it on sumthing plastic or sumthing. it its tooooo hot then the plastic will melt. that means dont do it. BTW it doesnt work

HOLY CRAP! it worked!! just make sure you put ur hands in COLD water every so often. but i was holding it for like five minutes!

I thought that blue flame was hotter than orange or red and red is the coolest?

Does this really work?
Or is it a video trick?

If it does work then please explain to me WHY it works. What is the science behind it?

If noone can explain that then why would I waste money to try something that probably won't work anyway?

Why does the bottom of the flame not burn?

blue is a cold color in nature...red or orange is a warm color in nature... Look at a faucet and check which color represents cold water and which hot water...

thing is my parents luv me, i hav a life so i dont wish to waste it on making somethin that sounds lik it will do more harm than gud to my wellbein , but i couldnt care less about my life so ill give it a shot, lets make a massive cotton ball and light that, that will scare the neighbours...muwhahaha

dat was awsome i still dont knoow how u did dat but dat was still cool

So, can I use medical spirit (the blue colored one used to rub wounds to prevent infections) as a fuel? Maybe combine it with water?

hey guys, great video. its awesome. i use zippo lighter fluid. First i started of burning the ball when it was on the ground and when i put my finger close to it it was reallt hot, but after a few trys i just picked it up and it worked. the smaller u make it, the less hot it is and same with the amount of fluid u put onto it. I sometimes put my hands and the ball in water first, then put the fluid over it and it works just as well and isnt as hot. you've gotta keep moving them around in your hands otherwise after a few seconds it starts to get really hot. but otherwise its awesome. heaps of fun. thanks for the video.

thanks for the video it worked great the first time i did it

and for people who want to know why it doesnt burn its because the fuel isnt what fire runs on its the fumes from the fire

so you shouldnt need any fire protective

Worked Awesomely! I didn't have the same type of lighter fluid so i went with some Tiki Torch fluid and that seemed to work just fine!

i have a degree!

no one cares boob

it did not work out for me,
But it might gone wrong with de fuel;
I used "Zippo fuel"

Please help me out!

I tried again and the flame didnt stay long...

i tried it it was greate!!!!

woh!!!! love this video....great .....gonna tune my sitar rit now.

what other kind of flamable fluids can you use other than, ethanol,spirit, or lighter fluid?
please answer..

This worked for me thanks for the vid looks cool.

hey guys i need to know how to make a serious stink bombs
i tride 13 kind of stink bombs none are realy stinky
so plz guys any sugestions

JUst put fresh fish down the back of an radiator/heating vent.

Or, somewhere that no-one will find it.
Works better if you do this on the last day before a break,or on a friday. (the classes get cleaned every day Mon-Fri, it might get found)

Hope that helps

either use you hair or anybody elses... or cat hair works to and put that in your bomb

its pretty much hair in a newspaper, wrap it up, stick a firecracker fuse in it or a store bought one and light the puppy up

i tried this years ago, i used normal alcohol and some cottonballs and it worked like a charm, its pretty awesome! well it looks great this way, u people should try it, maybe u will get burned but its not like " OOOHHH IM BURNING ALIVE" its like when u get a hot plate and u say, ouch its hot! no biggie

is there ne other liquid which we can use other than lighter fuel

Is Loaf da only one with un-burned hands?

Dont play with fire ;) ill try this out

cool

WITCH CRAFT!!!

yo blade 96 dude
shut the #@&! up
how many times u gotta say the same thing...

i want to try, but it looks to dangerous, i dont want to burn myself! is there a better way to do this??

to the people that got burned:

i guess u need to be touching blue flame to not get burned. obviously u weren't. and if its a first time doing something dangerous, shouldn't you test by barely touching to see if its warm enough to hold?

dose it have to be lighter fluid can i use gasoline.

lol youll kill yourself gasoline spreads quick and can get in the air on hot days

dude this guy probably smoked a $#!% load of weed and probably has been smoke ciggeratees his entire life so he dosnt feel a thing on his hands

dats as mad as a bag of spiders!

so u can use butane gas and or ronosol instead of zippo gas

great effect, i mustve done it correctly cause i was able to hodl it for a while w/o getting burned

It is an awsm trick dude..... I jst love it...

AWESOMEEEEEEE

is compressed butane work? I have most of a can of BLAZER butane left over from refilling some torch lighters.

nice, im going to make some of those soon

I really Like it !!!!!

do we NEED pure spirit to make this work??? or will it work without?

can you sub the lighter fuel w/ charcoal fuel?

how did you do that why will it not hurt

seriously u #$%&ing retards listen to blade and u wont get burned it tells u a thousand time

hey i did this but mine is different i didnt use lighter fluid i use alcohol and cotton (not dress)it is not hot but its cold didnt use any string

really it felt cold like not the slightest feeling of warmth?

Maybe, we should try different fuels. When trying them, burn the cotton first. If it is OK, we can try to touch... And... I haven't tried, yet. ^ ^ I've not had the idea about what makes fire but heat.

Duh,no need for mixing ethanol and lighter fluid,only alchohol (70%) will do

does gasoline work

does gas work

no thats over the top it spreads quick and very hot thats why they use gasoline for cars and not lighter fluid..

can u make giant fireballs too
that would b awsome

dud i burned my hand last nyt..

dude just use 70 percent alcohol and it will work
starts out slow and warm then its big and same temp

whats the other 30 lighter fluid or water...?

idk if i should tri it or not

Thats a cool little trick and it dosent burn at all?

woooow!wonderfulllllllllllllllll

the lighter fluid burns you but if you use rubbing alcohol you get the same affect but without the pain. i mean its hot but it doesn't burn you

ur all friggin thick. either way ur gonn burn your hand eventualy. jeez... thank go for me the 1 wiht a degree... hahhaha im smarter than all of u and im in yr 9 now.... ahhahah

Yes, you are so incredibly smart. You smartness overwhelms me with jealousy! God, I wish I was as smart as you.. if only I knew how to use terrible grammar and spell like a 7 year old.. ahh, that would be great!

Yes, this works, lighter fluid burns better and has a better effect, but keep your hands moving because it will get hot after a while. Trick works, just have a wet cloth around in case something goes wrong and don't drop it if you are near anything that can catch fire.

It works extremely well to just use a sock as the ball and use rubbing alcohol. This is such a cool effect!

Oh yeah try rubbing corn starch on your hands before you do it so it can coat your hand..that way you wont burn it since corn starch doesn't light on fire. And just keep it moving in your hand..which should be the obvious part of this.

alright im here at my house on the verge of trying these and im just pretty freaked and just need some insuruace to see if my hand will burn or not

can you use kingsford lighter fluid?

god you guys im 15 years old and i manged great. i can even hold mine on my forehead

maybe y'all overfilled the ball with the lighter oil.

Dont ya love how everyone says :

mix lighter fluid with pure spirit (ethanol)...you can buy spirit in a pharmacy...I don;t think that rubbing alcohol will work too good, so try to buy alcohol (spirit/ethanol) that is used in hospitals to disinfect wounds and medical tools. It should be 96 or 98 % alcohol. When you acquire spirit from the pharmacy, mix it with lighter fluid: 60% spirit and 40% alcohol, should give you a more gentle flame.

And no one listens...lol

WOW... THAT'S JUST SO COOL, IT'LL BE LIKE LIKE MAGIC, BUT MAN, "SHOOT" I MEANT TO SAY THE OTHER WORD BUT CHANGED IT IN THE NICK OF TIME BECAUSE THERE'LL BE LADIES TOO, WELL, ANYWHO, I ACCIDENTALLY, BURNED MY FRIENDS HOUSE DOWN, BECAUSE I ISTINTIVELY DROPPED IT! "SHOOT" IT WAS BAD. BUT THAT WAS HALF A YEAR AGO, SINCE I JUST GOT BACK MY COMPUTER YESTERDAY, GOT IT GROUNDED FROM THAT INCIDENT. BELIEVE ME, SOMETIMES, JUST NEVER TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS, BECAUSE THEY SURE CAN GET ONE INTO TROUBLE. BIG TROUBLE...

that is so cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!!!!!!!!!

cool i'll do that too.
thanks for the tutorial :))


thanks for showing me that ill use it on my enmys

COOL IDEAS

I LUV MY NEIBOUR FLANDERS HE IS A GOD LOVING FREAK

JOKE LOL I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE GOD GOD BLESS GOD

i used zippo fluid and dipped my hands in oil and it worked the same and it was really fun till the part a burned my dog{he tried to bite the ball on fire}

you see him constantally movin it around and passin it from hand to hand plus he blows on it t one point its fire its going to be hot but not hot enough to burn you its just like passing your hand over a lighter also make sure the string is wrapped tight but not so tight that the fluid is squeezed out

Im gonna get a bunch of small cotton balls and put them all together,yah thatll be awesome.

wait that might not work.

wow, im gonna try this for my science projcet :D

Howwww funnnn--Iz it normal for yer hand to still be on fire three dayz later?

wow u guys are way too complicated. all you need is rubbing alcohol. as long as you transfer the ball from time to time, its a comfortable, warm blaze, not hot. even though rubbing alcohol doesn't burn for exceptionally long periods of time, its a good substitute 4 fuel. if you still dont feel comfortable with handling this, soak the ball and put it on the garage floor then light it. take your time getting to know the flames and getting comfortable touching them. simple, without leaving your house to buy special liquids.

and hey, i'd be interested in finding out if vodka worked. anyone willing 2 try it and hit me up?

Can you use white gas? such as coleman camping fuel? Because I've used it to eat fire but i don't really know how it does when your holding it...

try using ethanol alcohol and always keep the ball moving

wow it is to cool and great.
but where to get lightning fule
