Is lighter flame/smoke/fume toxic?

I was going to make an instructable on mini roasting when something hit me. When you use the lighter to light maybe a marshmellow, is the fire or smoke or fumes from the fire toxic? I mean the gas/alcohol gets neutrilized when it burns up and turns into flame but If i cook with it, it may be a different question. If someone asks me to think about smokes, the I should say to you that smokes are already toxic and anyone smoking shouldn't care. ( I don't smoke, I want to live) If possible you can answer this question and have credit in my next instructable.

Is there a pure knex gun i.e pistol, rifle, crossbow? Answered

I'm looking for a pure, yes pure knex weapon. 100%. I heard that someone made one but I didnt understand the mech so I need pictures. If you show me how to make it and it is good I would be grateful, spread the word of giving it 5* winning a contest and so on. Just post images or instructables. THE RACE IS ON! If you can make one faster than me I will give full credit.I made one but its very weak, it works as if the tension from pulling a connector back shoots forward. Ty for the knex catapaults but i need guns like pistols instead of those catapaults and such.

Disposable rounds for knex pistols, rifles,crossbows and other weapons?

Is there a possible way of making disposable rounds for knex guns? The advantages are: 1.YOu do not have to pick them up after a knex war somewhere not in your house because they would biodegrade if made of paper? 2.You do not have to worry about losing pieces everywhere (doesn't it bother you people that when you shoot the knex, you don't know where it went and you lost a piece?) And the bullets have to fit in a mag loading, i have started making bullets for the okp and it worked, i used those rods from balloons you get from supermarkets. But is there a disposable bullet made for these: (you may request as a comment for other pieces if you wish):grey connectors, green rods, white rods, yellow rods,yellow connectors?

What is the "other" bar in itunes?

 I recently got a new iPod touch 3g 8gb and I u[loaded 30 games and 40 songs because most of my songs are still pending. I noticed when I uploaded a video, updated apps and songs that there was this huge chunk of "other" in the itunes page. There is a photo down there. I have also read about it that I should get rid of contacts (which I have), notes ( which I have) Calender notes ( which I have) and album art ( which I also have). Recently when I synced it the songs were copying form my music into the Ipod for no reason. I have also read about "ghost data" which comprises of songs which do not show but are there... Help me please

Test subjects with working but useless computers needed *please*

 Hi I am looking for some test subjects who are willing to sacrifice their old or junk computer to help me test something very important, please to not feel urged but if you wish to please reply, I will send you a pm with a file if you wish to help. It is a virus but not as you think, it was made fully from a batch file, please hep, I will soon be  pro and may give patches out. THANK YOU if you help. More info: self replicating and running virus which is set to run the first time your computer turns on after you run it, afterwards it needs to take some time to re read the files and re running.1 gb of spce will be filled every 6 minutes so it is kinda deadly but it slows down afterwards, then it self replicates and runs a lot and then you turn you pc off and back on it self replicates again and makes more folders and files until your hard drive comes to a halt, on the slowest computers it can fill a 360 gb drive in 3-5 hours depending on cpu usage. Because it uses to much processing power it is extremely detectable so please help me I will also post a file to stop all of this. Name: qwerty virus
