F: Fantastic Fireknife Dancers

The Samoan art of fireknife dancing, which is accompanied by the sounds of traditional Polynesian percussion, is very exciting to watch.  See for yourself here:  2011 Fireknife World Championship.  I cannot imagine twirling a baton that fast - nevermind sticking knives on each end and lighting it on fire!  The annual world championship competition is held here on Oahu, so if you are on the island during the month of May go check it out.
