    This typo in the article is probably closer to reality:

    Anyone paying someone for the privilege of walking over hot coals deserves to be burned.

    From my understanding, walking over hot coals is done a certain way. First, you are supposed to use some sort of poress stone or rock like lava rocks. They are set on top of hot coals and after it sits for a while, then you walk over them.

    While the rock or coals are still hot, the pores in the stone on top of the coals are much cooler making it easier to walk across. What it seems like these people did was walk over the hot coals without the lava rock on top. Plus, if you watch those who have done it many times, they don't walk but almost jog or run across.

    I most likely wrong on this though and haven't looked it up.

    I believe that if you're stupid and get hurt because of that stupidity, you deserve it.

    You must be a wingnut, walking over hot coals is physics.
