    Lol. I've got 99.9% Isopropanol (typical drug store stuff is 70%, IIRC) at work, in 55 gallon drums. ;lol Too bad I don't drink wine!

    In a pinch I have used homemade corn cobs out of the quicker picker upper, very absorbant paper towels. Dip them in a little lamp oil. Lamp Oil burns more slowly. or use some veggy oil.
    Easiest cheapest best quick fix when your in a jam option.

    Hmmm . . . wondering how that would burn . . . I'm betting no smoke and little to no flames to clue you into whether it's on fire or not. ;)

    I'm sure it would be blue and hard to see, impossible to see outside. I lit my hand on fire with the 91% stuff when I was a kid, didn't realize why my hand was hurting because I couldn't see it. I shook my hand and the flame grew and got a little yellow which is when I realized my mistake. I quickly wrapped my hand in cloth and it went out pretty quickly. I was lucky and only got a small blister on my palm, rest of my hand was perfectly fine. That was the day I stopped playing with fire...

    I was given some mimeograph copying fluid a few years back when a school switched over to using a photocopier . . . firefighter gave me the fluid to use in my extiguisher classes. One day I decided to test it out to see how it would burn before using it in an actual class -- poured some out and put a flame to it . . . and didn't see anything. Fortunately, I have moments of sheer brilliance (often with long stretches of being a complete idiot in between) and I tossed some loose hay in the general direction of the fluid only to see it burst into flames . . . completely invisible to the naked eye. I opted to not use that fluid in any of my classes as I feared my students walking into the flames.

    That was probably a good call.

    Ha, you got me. Though my fire play is now limited to pellet stoves and the occasional campfire or fireplace.
