Tar Barrelling: A Pyromaniac's Dream Come True.

Until today, I didn't realize there is such a sport/festival called tar-barrelling, where people run around carrying a *burning* barrel of tar.

From the website:

"In the weeks prior to the day of the event, November 5th, the barrels are soaked with tar. The barrels are lit outside each of the pubs in turn and once the flames begin to pour out, they are hoisted up onto local people's backs and shoulders."
