Have you ever just wanted to burn down a house or a barn? Have you embalmed the nicest looking lady on the block, for no reason other than to burn her?
I made this thread to talk about your collective Pyro Activity.
When I was young, I used to play with gasoline, after I was finished torturing the grasshoppers. I never thought about burning the insects, but I was more so for mutilating them.
But I digress
I'll get this started:
I was about twelve, before I became a real man at the age of thirteen.
I was playing in the back yard with my lighter. We had a wooden gate. I noticed a dry wheat crop poking through the fence. I lit it. It was like a fuse. After I lit it, it ran through the fence and onto the other side. The other side was nothing but dirt and dead wheat plants.
The fire started almost instantly and engulfed the fence. I didn't know what to do so I hid the lighter in a corner of the yard and went inside.
I told my brother that something was burning.
We got to play firefighter and sprayed the whole thing down until the fire was out.
The house I lived in was by the highway, so no doubt a few people saw.
A biker came by to make sure everything was ok.
He left, and it got blamed on my neighbor, who was probably smoking cigarettes

You embalmed a woman and set her corpse on fire?

You only play with yourself

I was sick one time with the flu. I was making eggroll and lumpia in a frying pan.
the phone rang. I went up stairs to answer it because the phone downstairs had the wire cut in a fight that week (save it for another time)
anyways, a wall of smoke came upstairs.
Though Unintentially.. I set the entire fucking kitchen on fire. fucking the Afghanistan neighbors were gone except their women who didn't speak english.. and yelled at me.. and one did that LALALALALA thing with her tongue or something close to it.
Some mexican guys working on a roof nearbye came over, grabbed my favorite security blankie I had from my childhood and was sleeping with it on the couch and he wet it and slapped this entire fire out on the wall.. but the fire got inside the wall and started burning the fucking roof.
Firedepartment finally arrived (like 20 minutes later) and cut into the roof and yelled at me. "There is a fucking lid right here.. what's wrong with you.. put the fucking pid on the pan next time".
I was telling him I was sick, wasn't thinking clearly. I ran out of the house. My flu got worst probably from the smoke.. got bronchitis.
The kitchen cost like 18,000 to replace along with the entire roof.
Other than that.. you're a fucking dick, Mash.

I may or may not have made several hundred thousand dollars in the course of arsonist for hire in my late teens/early twenties.

I may or may not have burned down a hobo campsite by accident
I may or may not have also burned down the woods next to one of my previous places of employment playing with fireworks, also by accident

Once I tried to make easy mac in the microwave and I forgot to add water. It didn’t end well.

Someone mentioned to me mixing cooking oil with powdered sugar. Used cooking oil by itself will get hot enough to melt steel quite easily if supplied with oxygen. Not the easiest shit to ignite. Maybe mix it with R-Candy powder? Karo Syrup + nitrate + used cooking oil.
I've made fires with it and it can be pretty scary. Maybe add some grated wax for smoke and to make it more sticky. Smoke screen + super hot flames. Chunks of thermite/RCandy and wax might also be useful.
EDIT: if your goal was to destroy a building, this mix might be good. It's hard to accidentally ignite the oil, and it's not going to evaporate like gasoline.
