How to amuse yourself ... With a flamethrower

After years of being in the scouts, I can officially confirm one thing:
We love fire.
And we'll do a lot with fire to amuse ourselves. Like building a flamethrower. This weekend, I was at a trip with the leaders, and we've conveniently bought several liters of flammable liquids (though no gas, although we've used that before, to great effect) and poured them into a pressure tank with a hose to spray the liquid through. Then we put a burning cloth in front, and sprayed everywhere with fire. Yay!
Okay, not everywhere. We just used it to burn some wood that was left behind. So we didn't start a fire, though some (stupid) guys have done that for a couple of years ago. But we're at least semi-responsible.
This trip didn't end with us sitting inside and gaming Red Alert 2 from the morning, totally forgetting about breakfast till about 16:00. But that time, we did play with gasoline. And that was very awesome indeed.
