Fire Breathing

Last Updated on

Breathing fire is the cool thing everyone wishes they could do but don’t because, naturally, it’s pretty dangerous. It doesn’t look that complicated though, right? Just channel your inner dragon and spit on a flame…simple enough. For a glimpse on how the technique of fire breathing works, watch this short video called The Science of Fire Breathing.

Interesting, eh? Fire breathing isn’t something you can just wing (speaking of wings, we have pizza and wings in the West Phoenix area, just saying!). According to, there are numerous factors that fire breathers need to consider. Look at what they have to know just about the fuel they use:

  • Flash point (whether the fuel ignites at a high or low temperature)
  • Toxicity
  • Taste and smell
  • Color and visibility of flame
  • Amount and thickness of smoke

So firebreathing isn’t as simple as you might think. Heck, just getting past the part where you have to endure the taste of fuel in your mouth is enough to deter some of us away. But we’d totally do it otherwise, of course!
