This is a question Have you ever started a fire?

I went to sleep with candles burning - woke up to a circle of flame on the rug. Thought, "Tits. Better put the rug in the bath and turn the taps on." TIP: Don't put a burning rug into a fibre glass bath. I caused about £5000 of damage to the house and was coughing up smoky black phlegm for a few weeks. Can you beat that?

I used to go up to the woods with some mates...
we generally started small fires...
untill i realised what a goldmine my garage was for explosives/fuel

i began ocasionally stealing an old coke bottle ful of petrol or meths to muck around with (producing some pretty walls of flame and some interesting firebombs)

this eventually lead to one occasion when i found a tin of propane/butane - the sort of can you get for a blowtorch - the one with the concave base that was a seperate bit of metal..

we started a fire and threw in the can - nothing happened - so when the fire had died down i was given the task of retriving the thing. by this point the base was well and truly convex... having being pushed out by the expanding gas. we decided to make a purpose built fire in the middle of the path...

this resulted in a huge bang and a 4m diameter fireball. enough said.

/Edit - just so's you know. i was 14 at the time.
