As told by Batmare…
“I was bored one day, and I read on the internet that if you covered your hands in rubbing alcohol, you could hold a fireball in your hands without getting hurt. So, I emptied three bottles of rubbing alcohol into a big bowl and soaked my hands in it for three hours. It stinged so bad.
When they were nice and coated in rubbing alcohol, I had my friend throw a lit match onto my hand, and it worked! I was holding a fire ball. I felt like a fire bender.
One of my friends said, “Can you toss it from one hand to the other?”
I said, “Let’s find out!” I could. I did that for a while, and then, I wanted to try more fire bending. I tried to do this elaborate twisting movement with the fire. In my mind, it was going to turn out really cool. Really, it burned my arm.
I didn’t want to tell my mom that I needed to go to the hospital because I knew that I would get in trouble, so I got this big vat of ice cream that we had in the freezer and stuck my arm in it. My mom walked in on me hunched over the ice cream with my arm still in it, and we had a tense moment like on Kill Bill with the dramatic look. My mom looked at me, and I looked at my mom. So I asked, “Do you want some ice cream?”
She said, “No, you keep that.” I think that she just thought I was being awkward.”
