I like it

I can't believe it but I like it.

It seemed way to easy to do.

I'm out of oranges :(

Saying 'I have my doubts' is putting it mildly.

No way its real. I used to squeeze orange peals into a flame to show people they were flammable which they are, but to a very small degree. The juice is what is flammable. Believe it or not I have tried lighting orange peals on fire with little to no success so I doubt this method worked. If you watch right before the fire starts the camera pans up and the guy holding the stick starts fooling with something in front of him and gives this "Alright i'm ready" look before the camera pans back down. I'm guessing they used something other than what they claim.

I don't think I'll get an orange in my altoids tin. Maybe a grape? Sultana?  :think:

I thought the same thing, that's why I thought I'd check to see if anyone here had tried it.

I suppose we could do a Mythbusters type thing, remove the variables and just cut open an orange and try to light the hole....

If it were legit, they'd be keeping the camera on the orange, rather than the guy...

The camera was away just long enough to squirt some lighter fluid in the hole :ahhh

This is a bit more legit :)
