sweetness

aidan said...

did it burn you badly?or did it just feel hot?

doomshot said...

I've found that the best to prevent burning is to keep the ball in constant motion. Also don't use yarn to tie up as string. Bad Idea, the yarn melted and I then had a large flaming cloth over my hand

If you run your hand under cold water then do it you can do it twice as long

Awesome. I've got to try this.

But I want to know how exactly it works first...

(I'm the above poster)

I just tried this, and my ball burned to a crisp...
(Fortunatley, I wasn't holding it)

I might have messed up because I used too much lighter fluid, too little string, or because I had a rough type of cotton. Idk.

Anonymous said...

the directions say use 5 feet of string, but in the video, it looks like he only uses 5 inches. which should i use? or does it matter?

Anonymous said...

can you ue hemp too?

Anonymous said...

Does it matter if the cotton is colored or does it have to white, and can you use anything else besides lighter fluid?

Anonymous said...

P.S don't use Meths, really quite hot!

do u have to keep refueling them

Anonymous said...

do i have to refuel it every time?

Anonymous said...

Great - Use a Tshirt and regurlar sewing thread. Still a little tricky but once you get the hang of it pretty cool, juggle three but be sure to catch them open handed (kinda) to keep on the cool flame. SWEEET

Anonymous said...

dont jack off while performing this trick

Anonymous said...

ive got to do this ii just have to talk my dad into letting me try it

Kitty said...

I've been doing thise on and off for a few months now, perfecting techniques. Yes, you do need to refuel the balls - the elves won't do it for you.

The secret of being able to hold it longer is to not be a pussy.

Hope this has helped. :D

OK, so this is the bottom line. I haven't tried it yet because i just need some ronsonal. You have to have 100% cotton tread and 100% cotton cloth. Because other materials such as polyester are synthetic, will melt and burn your hand.you can also rub soap on your hands and that SHOULD help. The soap thing is soemthign that i have ONLY HEARD NOT tried MYSELF! if you want, try it and post back.

i made one exactly like the viedo but it burnt up in like 3-4mins and was too hot to hold like the video any tips?

Anonymous said...

i was wondering can you like leave it on your hand? like still cause in the video he's not doing that he's always moving and and i think its cause it would burn your hand if you left it there soo there was no point of this video cause it would hurt and you can tell thats why when i made one it automaticaly burned my hand as soon as i touched i cause i used a white 100% cotton under shirt twas that why it burned or what i said up there ^??

i find that rubbing alcohol works pretty good and it doesn't burn as hot

Anonymous said...

screw fireballs, just cover your hand in lighter fluid and set your hand on fire and then try to shake hands with the closest guy to you...

OK, this is to help everyone out. YOU CANNOT JUST USE ANY OLD LIGHTER FLUID!!! The lighter fluid you use must be "Naphtha" lighter fluid. THAT IS NOT A BRAND, IT IS A TYPE. Use that, and it should work out perfectly.

James said...

Wow, there are a lot of dumb comments on here from people that just won't read. I'll reiterate what has been said in the comments:
-Use 100% Cotton shirt, 100% cotton thread, and naphtha lighter fluid.
-Wrap it up really tight, so there is no loose cloth to burn because that will cause it to burn itself up.
-The reason it can be used over and over is because it is just the lighter fluid burning while the cloth acts as a dispenser (exactly like a lighter)
-You can not hold it in your hand without moving it because it is flame... combustion is hot. Fortunately, lighter fluid burns fast and turns into a hot gas which rises; therefore, causing the top of the ball to be exceptionally hotter than the bottom.

thank you guy above me for all these answers... hopefully less annoying comments now... Looks Cool and im usually pretty good with heat so i just gotta keep looking for fluid and then im good to go

FyroPyro said...

u can tell if its needing more lighter fluid if it looks like the cotton is burning

Anonymous said...

can u use dyed or colored cotton cloth

Nuko22 said...

Gotta talk dad into doing this

pyroguy108 said...

iv u juggle get a frnd to get and spray the top wile in aer

"If you run your hand under cold water then do it you can do it twice as long"

Actually, running your hand over any temp water would work. The evaporation of the water cools your hand.

SomePyroGuy said...

I think you really have to soak it in Naptha for it to not burn the cotton.

White T-shirts are OK, you can easily tell if it's combusting itself than darker colors.

In regards to not burning yourself, try using a washed and wet leather glove first just to feel the excitement without the threat of getting burned.

I also heard that if you rub a little petroleum jelly in your palms it will take a little longer for heat to transfer.

Question. Can u use rubbing alchahol or axe?

WOW Gold said...

There is the best to prevent burning up is to maintain the golf ball within continuous movements. Furthermore avoid yarn for you to connect because chain. Negative Thought, the string melted and I and then stood a significant warp speed material over me
