Understood.

I'm not familiar with "Fire Alarm".

If you're inclined to PM me, I'd love to know more about it.

Thanks.

Rachel, et al, Never let your torches burn dry, and never soak them up! When the fuel is gone, as you've learned, your equipment suffers... Stay focused and you will have a lower chance of getting burned. (It's always ready to bite you)
I quit using Coleman's and other "camp"fuels for a lot of reasons (read bad burns) including portability. Why lug a potentially explosive and spillable gallon of fuel around when you can just bring a couple of cans of Ronsonol fluid in your pocket, pour it into your soaking pan and go to work? Since it's also smokeless(nearly) it works well indoors and out...

Juggling fire is far different from fire-eating. Lit torches behave far different.
If you try this, be very aware that unlit torches will move in a different manner. If you want to learn fire eating, jjuggling is not the best way... I hope I understood your question correctly.

Default my fire update

A retired animator friend is having a TGIGF BBQ soon ("Thank God it's Good Friday"). He's allowed me to perform my "act" there (mostly comic, ending with a teeny bit of fire eating). It'll be mostly collegues. They like me. ...it'll be a comfortable audience to test this out on. I'm far more afraid of the jokes bombing than the fire.
After that, I do it at a wedding in August. I'm a bride's maid. I'll have to tell them not to use hair spray on me, lest I explode. ...or implode?
I've come to realize that government building parking lots are not a good place to practice fire eating. They've really pumped up security at all federal buildings since 9/11.
Anyway -- just wanted to update what's come of my fire questions.
yayay. ...I'm starting to be not such a chicken! yay!
