Don't try this at home!
|Drunken backpackers getting burnt on the fire skipping rope.|
Generally speaking, as the night wears on and party goers get more and more drunk, people gradually get less concerned for their own personal safety, so you often find that the number of volunteers increases later in the evening. You also find that as people get more drunk their co-ordination skills go downhill, so if ou enjoy watching people get burnt then the best time to watch the fire skipping rope is later in the evening!
In all seriousness it doesn't take a genius to work out that although it's very entertaining, the fire skipping rope can also be dangerous. If you're considering giving it a go, I therefore recommend watching the following fire skipping rope compilation video as a warning of the potential dangers involved...
