I will teach you the "art" of holding fire, and even "throwing it"
*WARNING* although it is very hard to actually hurt yourself doing this, it IS possible. Be warned. I take no responsiblity for what you do with this knowledge.

What you need:
1. Two hands, only got one? sorry I cant help you.
2. A Bic lighter. You can get one for 25cents at a gas station.

ready? Go on to the next step.

Step 1: The correct hand position.

Picture of The correct hand position.
First things first, go get your lighter. Now, hold your left hand (opposite if you are left handed) like the pic below. The goal is to make a little pocket for the lighter to put gas into. try and make it airtight except for the hole at the top.

Got it? Ok, on to the next step!

i did it once, cant do it anymore D:
since we are getting more dangerous (but I must say creative) by the comment why not take a whole gallon of lighter fluid, dump it on our heads, and run around naked humming the ice cream truck song???
i'm peeing my pants laughing hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah
another cool thing is to open the botom of your hand up and squeeze your hand. Flame bursts out of each end.
hmm, i will try that tomorrow :-)

if u dont want to burn your back of da hand like mr.inventforlife2234 did(though i doubd it) put on some water on back of ur hand, and theres 100 precent chance u wont get burned...unless water evaporates.......
k instructable by me=) with same techniques u can make faming bottel
get GLASS BOTTLE(!!!) overclock ur lighter and put some gas in da bottle, hold the hole closed with ur thumb and when u are ready to bour it, light a lighter, take of ur thumb and IMMEDIATELY but flame to the bottle, looks cool =) be carefull though, dont burn ur thumb like i did when i was 9 =P
I used a potato shooter, sucked up some gas, lit the lighter, and blew the gas though it. =)
awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always wanted to use a squirt gun but don't want the squirt gun to start on fire... that could get ugly. If you're ever feeling brave, you should try it and reply to this comment.

well we know this guy is totally brave
Or, How about you coat the palms of your hands in a lightly flammable liquid, light them on fire, and go around touching everyone :D
omg i love doing that. lol i freaked out my friend by throwing fire at him (from a distance so he wouldnt get burned)

how do u throw the fire, ive got the "holding the fire in hand" trick but i dont know how to throw it. Also can you tell me some other cool fire tricks (I can almost do the mouth trick to)
you can't throw the fire more than like 2 feet.... and thats if you are extremely talented.
2 feet?!?! Thats awesome!! i was expecting something like 2-3 inches!
that what she said
try overclocking the lighter-this will let the gas out å lot faster
not really i put rubbing alchol in a like spray bottle and it shot out like 30 feet
maybe it seemed like 30 feet at theh time but it was probably only 7-10 feet. my house is 30 feet wide. if you could get that size of flame with a spray bo†tle they wouldn'† have bothered with flamethrowers
no i did tests it was 30 feet but i did motify the bottle
nice. XD
i'm not outwardly christian my computer is just screwed up and some of the "t"s come out as cross symbols.

at first it took me a while to figure out what you were on about. I have burned myself countless times doing this and its still great fun =]

However, the gas lights and my hand burns less than a second later. Any ideas?
You probably have very soft hands, there's not really much you can do about that.

How could I make the fire fountain burn longer without it burning my hand?  It burns the web between my index finger and thumb.  Thanks
Also, how long should the fire last?
