Yea, I heard about the cancer thing, are you feeling better, hopefully you are. I am worried about chemical pneumonia, it is the only thing that has really and truely "scared" me about fire breathing.

Long before the cancer, I was diagnosed with COPD. (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)so for the last 15 or so years. Shortness of breath, unable to do stairs, poor circulation and finally an electric wheelchair. I hope it makes you think...
A NOTE: Practicing with water for what we call the blow, (Fire Breathing) will do you no good when you use fuel! The densities are very different and the control you think you have with water turns into a spluttering spraying drool, most of which will wind up flaming on your chin!
Note 2: When I began professionaly eating fire, the fuel of choice was gasoline "appropriated" from the Ferris Wheel. Different strokes...

***, that really sucks! Yea, water and fuel are NOTHING alike, at all, I practiced with water and got nothing out of it. So I bought 32 oz. of fuel, and used that to practice with then, finally actually blew.

I also had full dentures ,top and bottom, by the time I was 22... I don't think all this stuff was related to the acts, but it's common among old timers.... Jeez, I'm not much of a poster boy for sideshow, am I? <G>

My advice...FORGET IT !!!!

Oh yes slim, the perfect poster boy, haha. Yea, smoking woulnd't help you sotp having emphysema, I have made a sincere pact to myself to stay tobacco and drug free, so I have nothing to really worry about in that area. Personally, I would rather have dentures, sure it would get in the way of a few things, none really come to mind. But they are soooo much easier then real teeth, or at least they would seem like it. What do you think Slim?
