Dear God my head hurts just thinking about what it may take to do that. I mean, I don't find it very difficult to imagine that flame propogation rates would increase with helium injection. Who knows what else may change?

Just make the pain stop! :shock:

I'm sorry! Here, have some Ibuprofen
Herm... I wonder how adding powdered ibuprofen would effect flame propagation rates...

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
