Um, Kathode. As far as I know, Alcohol burns hotter than gasoline.
Don't think that's right. We did the experiment plenty of times in high school chem class where you soak a dollar bill in alcohol and light it on fire, and it emerges unharmed every time.
Of course, that was rubbing alcohol... Either way, guys were giving him high fives and he wasn't exactly screaming in pain afterwards *shrug*
