Supposedly the "trick" is that by the time the person walks on the coals, they're covered with ash, thus not so hot. I wonder if the fire tenders stoked the coals too much.
You’re also suppose to run across them fast, sort of like the candle trick...If you run your finger across a candle flame fast you don’t get burned. But in another article I read these geniuses walked across them slow, as if Robbins gave them magical powers to become fireproof. “Hmmm...wait a minute..I smell smoke! Like something is on fire! And that something is...ME! YAAAH!”
I’d like to see Tony pull his ‘cool moss’ stunt by walking on steel plates placed over a bed of hot coals. Simple physics at work here...put your hand into a hot oven and you’ll have no problem; grab the hot rack and see what happens.
It actually happens more often than one hears. Some folks don’t keep moving so they pick up embers. With as many people as were at this one it could well be that the ash got kicked loose by previous walkers.
I just think it is stupid as all get out to pay money for this kind of crap
