This is an simple and relatively safe method of firebreathing that can be learned and perfected in under an hour.
My other instructable on firebreathing is different in a few ways.
-First, and most noticeably, the method used in my original Instructable yields much more impressive results. Many of the fireballs achieved using the original method were 10+ feet long. Most of the fireballs created in this project average around two or three feet.
-The other, less noticeable difference, is in safety. If you screwed up using the original method, everyone you've ever loved or cared about would die a horrible painful death. Whereas using this method you are only putting yourself at risk.
-The materials are also much easier to come by than the things used in the original project. There are only two things needed, both of which can be picked up at your local bodegs.
Without further ado, here are 23 fireballs in 10.5 seconds.
Step 2: Procedure
There should be a slightly tapered plastic or metal nozzle about two centimeters long. If the can is upright and the nozzle is pressed directly downward, the can will release butane gas. If the can is upside down (or at a sever tilt) it will release liquid butane.
Gather around some friends and family (they will be safe, you will be not).
Tilt the can at a slight angle above the horizontal. (The angle will change depending on the amount of butane left in the can, but the goal is to get a mostly gas / small amount of liquid mixture in your mouth.) Interestingly enough, it is more likely to get frostbitten than burnt while attempting this firebreathing technique. Rapidly vaporizing liquid butane is very cold. Wear a sweater.
Take a nice deep breath (OF AIR!). Hold the tip of the nozzle in your teeth and wrap your lips around the shaft (stop crying, you want people to like you right!?) Press the nozzle into your teeth, and let the butane fill you mouth. Try not to let any escape your mouth (either through your lips, or down your throat). This will be hard because the bit of liquid butane will be rapidly turning into a gas and increasing the pressure in your mouth.
Hold a light lighter about 10 inches over your head, and spit / blow the contents of your mouth upwards at the flame.
Warning: The only way this can go bad (apart from loosing some hair) is if you released too much liquid butane into your mouth, and it does not all escape from your mouth in the initial blow. If this happens the flame might travel back into your mouth, and if this happens than you MUST NOT INHALE. I have had the flames travel back into my mouth because of excess butane, and the best technique to extinguish the flames is to simply close your mouth.
