I turn down the flame, as if it were a little alcohol stove, as low as it will go.
Then it explodes and that is my idea." Ernest Hemingway

This definitely has the potential to hot up into an interesting contest....

Hey Ivoire - the cash is replaceable, but your car too. Man, that just sucks!
There is only one treatment for a witch like that...

Great idea!
Challenging, as I live in a pretty flameless environment.
I'll have to start some myself

You have no idea what you have unleashed upon an unsuspecting world...

Not only am I a photographer, but also a pyromaniac.

Actually, I know more about fire safety than most people, thanks to a misspent youth setting things on fire SAFELY. Pyromania is under-rated.

I dunno, I seem to have stumped all you aspiring pyros. I might have to go through my archives and see if I can get this started off.

#2 is indeed spectacular, Catriona.

Seems like I'm going to be the first to follow.
