With the help of Anna Sitek, Sammye Sigmann and Rob Toreki, we've added a web page to the DCHAS site discussing how "flame-jetting" relates to the rainbow demonstration and other uses of flammable liquids. The effort was inspired by the incident in New York City last month, but adds information from the NFPA, Not Your Turn to Burn (an organization supporting burn survivors) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. You can find it at

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
