Okay so I should start this one off by saying that this is UNSAFE FOR CHILDREN!!! All caps because it's important. This is a neat little trick a friend of mine taught me earlier this evening, and I want to share it. It's a way no make a little fireball that you can hold in your hand, throw it around, juggle it, whatever. But since you will be playing with fire chances are you will get burned.

Disclaimer, this is for informational purposes ONLY! Trying this at home could result in severe burns, loss or damage of property, or even death. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. DO NOT THROW YOUR FIREBALL AT ANYONE OR ANYTHING!

Read that last bit again it's important. Now on to the good bit.

Things you will need.
-3x5 inch piece of cotton cloth (an old piece of t-shirt, napkin, etc.)
-A needle
-A thread (black works best but it's not vital)
-Lighter fluid, or rubbing alcohol
-Lighter or matches

Step 1. Roll your cotton cloth until it forms a nice little ball.

Step 2. Tie the thread to the needle.

Step 3. Poke the needle through the cotton ball, and then wrap the string around your ball so that it stays tight. Once you're almost out of string poke the needle through again, so it won't get untied. Rip off the excess. (The reason black works so well is because it's easy to see where you still need to tie.)

Step 4. Go outside and find somewhere safe, somewhere where there is nothing flammable.

Step 5. Douse the ball with your lighter fluid (or rubbing alcohol) Avoid over soaking and getting any on your hands or they will light up, and it hurts trust me.

Step 6. Light the ball if you added enough lighter fluid it will be hot but not hot enough to burn you.

Step 7. Close your hand on the ball to smother the flame when you're done.

The reason this works is because the lighter fluid get burned up before the cotton that makes it almost safe. Chances are good you will drop the fireball the first few times due to the sheer shock of fire being that close to your hands, but with enough practice you should be able to impress your friends, and scare your mother.

Be safe and have fun.
