The coolest thing ever is to buy some cheap cologne and spray it into a flame.

I've done that millions of times. Old spice burns the clearest, but tag is much more flammable. :-)

Nice. I remember A while back I bought a 100 pack of book matches at a discount store, poured lighter fluid on it, dumped bug spray on, lit it and ran like crazy. It made like orange-blue fire and gigantic whoosh

Instead of wasting 50 matchbooks, buy a real flare that will last longer, and that is windproof. :P

goeon (author)bumpus2008-07-19

match books are cheap though

JamesRPatrick (author)goeon2008-09-01

You should experiment with KNO3 smoke bombs. They're also cheap.

goeon (author)JamesRPatrick2008-09-01

still need stumprot they cant sell it at all where i live so i have t go out of town to get it

Spectrace (author)2008-07-20

you cant see anything in the video. Try to have better lighting and the thing you are taping visible.
