What's your favorite fire emitting device?

Sykes's picture

I was thinking to myself about how I love to play with fire, and how about all the times I have gotten burnt were either by the oven, range, or the dumbass 'science' teacher in a private school I tried that put water in a closed circuit and boiled it: it popped open and sprayed steam all over my hand.

So: What's your favorite firework, candle, lighter, special fx, magic trick, axe can, or anything else you can think of?

Me? I like a lot of stuff as long as it looks cool and I can do set it off relatively close (anything from flame in hand tricks to setting off smoke bombs/relatively small fireballs)

I'm not a pyromaniac, but I'm a fan of butane lighters. Most useful devices when it comes to lighting a chimney.

I like throwing things in the fireplace, spraying alcohol on them (My dad has alcohol in spray bottles for killing bugs with.) and throwing a match in. :)

Fire!

I love matches. And candles; it's so much fun to stick stuff in them and watch it burn...
Campfires are awesome. Um...I will always be fond of oxyacetylene torches.

Lets go down the list.

Campfires, because they're fun to play with
Bonfires, because they're just awesome and huge-gantic (at least mine are...)
Candles, because they're fun to burn things with, and hot wax is fun to play with. And they smell good.
Matches, because the sound from lighting them is exiting.
Lighters, because they're just sooo useful.

I really just love fire in general.

How does a knife qualify as a fire-emitting device, though?

Yeah!

I agree, which is probably why I have a Buster Sword in my windowsill, a Kokori blade in the corner of my room, some pocket knives scattered around my room, and a pocket knife/shank thing my friend gave me for christmas b/c it 'reminded her of me'. Lolz, I'm such a pyro freak!!!

Mine to! its not fair! My friend set off her fire alarm and she didnt even have anything lit, she was asleep, in her bed. I think she secretly jumps on the bed and breaths fire in her sleep.

I love candles

In addition to that, I like bonfires, fireplaces, oil lamps, torches, campfires. . .uh. . .everything I guess. 'Cept I think gas stoves are boring, but. . . To me, lighters and matches are just a tool.

I'd love to have a flamethrower.
