Light ‘Em Up

Flamethrowers are not covered by any federal firearms statute, nor do they appear to be covered by any state law here in Texas. You may not be able to shoot bullets, but you can spray flaming liquids about!

I bring this up for absolutely no reason at all. Really. Well, other than it gives me an opportunity to mention two of my favorite quotes ever.

It is better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.

As I recall, the quote is Terry Pratchett from one of the Discworld books. The other one must be sadly unattributed.

If you build a man a fire, he’ll be warm for a day. If you set a man on fire, he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.

So, on that note, I leave you to contemplate the wisdom of strapping a pressurized container of napalm to your back and spraying it around willy-nilly.

Don't want the Obamanation knowing our little secret.
Those napalm backpacks don't react well to bullets, unfortunately.
