After reading the grill topic, I had some memories of past incidents. Has anyone else here had a fascination with fire? I've had the fire department in my town's nearby forest numerous time, though never getting caught.

Well, one time I stare in front of a big fire more than one hour. It was ipnotic.

I have started neumerous fires, mostly on camping trips. In a firepit.

When I was a kid, my parents hd to hide the matches because I was always setting things on fire. Even now, fire fascinates me.

Shouldn't the topic title be pyromania?

I like candles, and that's about all. I play an RP character who's a pyromanic pyromancer though - Eferas.

I can look at fires for the rest of my life, tuning everything else out. To put it simply, I'm a pyromaniac. Runs in the family, my grandpa once lit a fire as big as a barn and didn't call the fire department.

I hope said fire was not in a barn. :P

On another note, your name reminds me of Beowulf.

My most recent project into this, excluding the arguably functional work on the charcoal starter, was candlemaking. It was a rousing success, though I have not had a chance to light the large one proper; that is mainly because I am worried about whether it still qualifies as a candle under the law.

How petroleum candles work is fascinating as long as you have an appreciation for the chemistry of the whole thing. Also, petroleum jelly is a great alternative to wax if you find that high quality products of the latter are too expensive.

I like fire. I like it's warmth, the pop and crackle, the dance of the plasma, and most of it's smells. Four out of five senses agree, fire can be a plesant thing.

I love fire. Fortunately, my parents don't hide the matches. I save old school projects that I didn't enjoy doing and set them on fire.

BURN! BURN! BURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, though, I like burning stuff. It's fun to throw firecrackers into a box, and watch it burn. Or the classic "hold plastic soldier under flame". I do that all the time.

Fire's kind of fun, I guess, but I wouldn't call myself a pyromaniac. I tend to hate needless destruction, so I've never liked melting plastic soldiers or whatever, but I love building a fire and keeping it going.

Five out of the five senses, Gizmo - sparks from a woodfire are actually kind of pleasant-tasting.

I once burned my plastic trash can. It was unintentional, actually. I didn't expect it to start melting, but then again, I was just a kid. I had some papers and I figured it'd be really fun to burn them. So I put them in my trashcan. To avoid most smoke I put the can outside my window (there was a large enough ledge there) and lit up a fire. I did get scolded pretty badly about that.

My father also confiscated my house keys after setting up fire in the oven there. But that particular oven is meant for it! I think I just forgot to open the .. thingie, you know, for the smoke? I don't even remember what it's called in Finnish, sorry. :\

But since then, I don't find it particularly exciting. I could light up, well, maybe 15 or so different candles I have, but frankly the possibility of a fire hazard just takes away all the fun. Hmh.

I suppose I'm fascinated with fire. I particularily enjoy playing with candles and campfires, but nothing ever really large or dangerous.

Dikiyoba doesn't like fire on beaches, however, ever since Dikiyoba stepped directly into a pile of hot coals that someone had thrown just enough sand on top of to disguise it.

Go got bored and had a massive fireworks war a while back. Long story short after people getting reasonable decent burns and bruises and a rubbish bin catching fire the police turned up. Trying to flee down a beach while drunk and in the pitch black is way harder than it first seemed.

I've got some cards I'd be willing to dispose of.

And I've always kept myself from setting things on fire (usually with video games or reading non-burning books). Even just thinking about burning things requires me to keep myself from laughing maniacally.

But, if I ever end up as an outlaw anyway, things WILL burn.
