       [Dillon], do you have a citation for the name change? Or are you just making fun of [technobadger]'s spelling?   

       I know someone who burned themselves very badly trying to show off by pouring methanol on themselves and igniting it. Tip: Take off your shirt first.

       UB: Depends upon the fuel. Back in college, your Uncle Nutsy would set his hands on fire every Halloween, as part of the haunted house attraction for local kids.   

       As I greeted people in my guise as a drooling, disfigured hunchback (no different from normal, right?) I surreptitiously dipped my hand in a tub of water, then a jar of butane. Then, as I grandly motioned them onwards, my hand touched an open candelabra, and poof! blue flames.   

       It doesn't hurt- the water acts as insulation, and butane burns cool- as long as you don't have any hair on the back of your hands. If you do, well, it won't hurt the *second* time you do it.

       Sounds good [Uncle Nutsy] - see link for how water will similarly protect your hand against molten lead.
