What is Wrong With Being Fond of Flamethrowers?

    By this point, most of the other users here should know that I am fond of flamethrowers, and, if anyone previously did not, now they know.

    However, several others users here seem to find this fondness of mine to be weird, and several have even described it as a "fetish," so I wish to ask: what is wrong with being fond of such devices? At thirty-one years of age, I am very familiar with the safe handling of fire and incendiary devices (i.e., devices that produce fire), and, if I ever own a flamethrower (which I hope to do, once I have several thousand dollars to spare), I will always keep it locked away when I am not using it, and use it only in areas in which there are no flammable substances (and well away from any residential or commercial buildings, which may be more difficult than I would like for it to be).

    What does everyone else say about this? What is wrong with being fond of flamethrowers?

    Also, as a side note, I also am very fond of sharp objects, such as swords and knives, but I obviously am well-trained in handling them safely, as well.

    I am very glad that you have such a positive opinion of me; my fondness for flamethrowers is due to their visual impressiveness, not for their destructive capability, which is also why I am planning to invite my girlfriend to Providence Waterfire for our second anniversary, and flamethrowers can also be used to melt ice in winter, burn away insect nests or animals burrows, or start bonfires in the summer.

    Honestly, you are somebody I wouldn't trust with a flamethrower and a perfect example of why we shouldn't just let anyone use them.

    People fear what they can't understand, glad you are being careful with these things cause not everyone is.. It's not really the weapon that causes fear into me but thee who wields it and their mental state of mind. I also like sharp objects though in my case I like the thrill too much thus I tend to keep em near me in my home in case of a burgler attempt hihi.

    Usually it's something you keep to yourself or just leave it at "Flamethrowers are pretty cool hm."

    I'm fond of cheeseburgers, but I don't make a spectacle out of it nor do I see a cheeseburger and go "OOooooo loook Jimmy loook isn't she beautifulllll, some day I'll have me one of them babies!!"

    You like it, that's great, just leave it at that. The bigger of a deal you make it yourself the more it'll come off as... you're a fetishist.

    To melt ice and snow in the winter, to burn away unwanted shrubbery, to burn away insect nests or rodent holes, to start bonfires, or simply for visually-impressive pyrotechnic displays.

    Such items are propane torches are already commonly used for a variety of purposes; what makes flamethrowers any different?

    Im pretty sure there's big difference between a blowtorch and a flamethrower

    But that's beside the point, which is that a flamethrower isn't a toy

    You expect to use a flamethrower to clear snow in a state where fireworks are illegal?

    I am well-aware of that; my father, who is proudly a member of the NRA, taught me and my brother how to store, handle, and use firearms safely, and I will transfer that knowledge to flamethrowers.

    I checked, and the only states that do not allow flamethrowers are , which pleases me, but also surprises me, given that Massachusetts does not allow cane swords, nunchaku or fireworks (usually, the fact that Massachusetts is one of the most liberal states in the nation is a good thing, but not in this instance).

    Also, I feel that I should mention that flamethrowers are insanely expensive; I will not be able to afford one at any time in the near future, so I obviously am hoping that my current job becomes permanent, so that I shall have additional money to spend on such luxuries (after I have my own house, obviously, as I do not believe that my parents would be comfortable with me owning a flamethrower while I still live with them).
