Fire breathing

Fire breathing is the act of creating a large flame by spraying, with ones breath, an inflammable liquid upon an open flame. The flame is usually held right in front of the mouth and the spray should be both powerful and misty. While not a difficult skill, it is a dangerous one, not just due to the obvious risk of serious burns. The fuels that create the most spectacular flames are often extremely poisonous and carcinogenic.
