    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

    match books are cheap though

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

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

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