Or maybe they can forget flaming bar shots, and just start firing a real gun in the air. There shouldn't be a law for that, huh? ....oh....there is? Damn police state!!! Infringing on our second amendment rights again. I know, they should let alligators run loose in the place........oh.....that's against the law too? Damn you, Obama!!!!

They should have at least got a warning to stop first. I wish that the government would just publish 1 huge list of things we absolutely cannot do so we can at least be sure.

Like instead of the 10 Commandments we can have a 10,000 commandments.

The government produces 70,000 pages of regulations annually.

Many of which can result in fines or imprisonment if violated.

Without government to run our lives for us, we might actually be forced to think for ourselves and be productive. This would be an utter tragedy resulting in the monopoly men facing startup competition from young motivated entrepreneurs.

Heaven forbid someone starts a business these days. The government will regulate them into the ground for our own good.

You're right, if there is even a minute chance of something hurting someone else, we should send people who do these things to prison for life.

You people who yammer on about how laws need to be upheld don't even understand what laws are for apparently. See, there is this vague, abstract concept called Justice. Now, I could take my time explaining this to you but considering I could write a thesis paper on it, I'll pass on that. But it's this really cool concept that is amazingly a central aspect of our system of law.

Sadly, as it has become apparent amongst the people in this thread who think this is alright, law isn't about justice anymore.

I jaywalked in front of a cop car the other day, do you want to know what happened?

Absolutely nothing except I crossed the street.

The point? Between legislation and prosecution there is a little thing called enforcement. Not all laws are enforced even if they are on the books.

Now our OP anarchist friend might want his local bartender to burn down the bar with a pyrotechnic trick, killing everyone inside, but maybe, just maybe, that might not be the best idea.

I know common sense should prevail, however, looking over our OP's threads, it makes me wonder if common sense actually exists anymore.

Yeah, I want the bar tenders to kill everyone on a wild alcohol fueled arson spree.

Where you on the other hand want people who have harmed no one to be imprisoned for life.

Who is worse?

Tough call.

I'll say it again because you obviously missed it...

Some people's anarchist children.

Just remember, you are free to do whatever you want, you just have to deal with the consequences of your actions.

It's putting someones life in unnecessary danger that could result in death

Do you want to me repeatedly twirling around with an axe near people, seeing how close I can get the blade to their head? Or would you be against that.

What if people realized that, if there was no law against it, they could do this freely. Armies of crazy guys with axes wildly swinging them, kind of dangerous no?

Sir, I think its clear that instead of banning radio tuning while driving, we would all be safer if we just banned cars.

This whole driving business hurts the gia and puts lives in danger.

Tens of thousands of people die on our roadways every year. Its time we put a stop to this needless death and destruction by shooting everyone that owns a motor vehicle.

I've done fire dancing and fire breathing for over 10 years, and I wish to add that it is exceedingly hard to light anything except the fuel on fire by fire breathing. Unless the bartender were

A. Breathing the fire at a big ol bucket of Everclear or gasoline

or

B. Breathing the fire at somebody's face

nobody was in any danger. Things don't just magically light on fire even if you do breathe fuel onto them, the fuel won't burn unless it is fairly well atomized, which means there ain't that much of it in any given volume of space, which means that the fuel burns out before it has the chance to light anything else fairly but not extremely combustible (i.e.wood) on fire.

Sir, I have reported you to the DHS as a potential terrist threat.

Expect armed black suited jackboot wearing police enforcers to kick down your door at any moment.

You are a threat to society.

You should be ashamed of your violent criminal actions.

Shame on you and may god have mercy on your soul.

In your world it would be perfectly fine for the bartender to not only blow fire into someones face but to also shoot the burning victim afterwords. I know, Anarchy is your way of life.

I still think you should move to Detroit, it's pretty much what you want the United States to be like, Anarchy everywhere.

In your world, you are so scared of fire breathing bar tending tricks that you would have jackbooted thugs haul off entertainers in handcuffs and charge them with 45 years of felony offenses.

I know its a big scary world out there, but trust me, fire breathing bar tenders should be lower on your list of concerns than being struck dead by lightning.

Of course, not only are you paying for their imprisonment and court costs, you are demanding that I pay for those costs as well - which is ridiculous in the extreme.

Actually no, I am not afraid of fire breathing bartenders, I am afraid of drunken morons who think that a pyrotechnic show inside is a good idea.



I know you think that common sense would win out, but people are idiots.

Should I post videos of traffic accidents?

How about scary videos of terrists?

As if one night club fire is supposed to mean we should imprison all fire breathing bar tenders.

The men did not hurt anyone - unlike the people in your video. If someone is hurt by the tricks, they can sue. This is why we have civil courts. We don't need to imprison bar tenders to keep society safe.

This is utter nonsense.

Its double nonsense that I am being forced to pay for the imprisonment and trial of such bar tenders at gun point. This is the biggest outrage of it all.

It amazes me that you are willing to come into this forum and openly admit that you are so scared of fire breathing bar tenders that you are willing to commit your own money to see that they are safely behind bars.
