I'm sorry, i'm an 11 year fire breathing veteran. This is not a safe way to do it. I have a group, Brotherhood Of The Flame, and we teach the proper way to firebreath. First rule is always have a safety watching at all times, second is do not try this without a professional around. thirdly use a fire rod.. not newspaper. a Coat hanger with a thick 1inch ball of cotton on the end tied securely with Kevlar thread is at the least what you should be using. Please do not try this at home unsupervised. Us actual firebreathers have a hard enough time trying to show people its not dangerous, having something like this kinda makes it hard on us..
Here here! These posts are breaking my heart. Especially the ones that suggest the wrong fuels for breathing! I do hope that people are not relying only on instruction from a site. But this very well could be Darwinism in action. I wish people would understand that fire performance is a skill and not a trick.

I agree with crim, this is a dumb way to do it. Please go learn how to do it and then teach others the way to do it properly. This is asking to have your mouth burnt.

i believe powdered sugar will also work although it might dissolve in your mouth
thermite works too... if your mouth is 9000 deggree proof
