Learn to EAT FIRE!

Brian teaches the fundamentals of Fire Eating on the latest episode of Scam School. WARNING: The ONLY safe way to learn fire eating is under the personal training of an experienced professional ... Which is exactly what our Rev3 hosts do in this week's episode. Just as watching a pilot explain how he flies a plane doesn't qualify you as a pilot, watching this episode doesn't clear you to go trying to eat fire on your own. Learn only from a qualified professional!
