  Fire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fire is not a state of matter: rather, it is an exothermic oxidation process by which heat and light energy are given out.
Fire starts when a fuel with adequate supply of oxygen or other oxidizer is subjected to enough heat, and it is sustained by the further release of heat energy in the process, as well as a continuous supply of oxygen and combustible fuel.
Fire is one of the four classical elements, as well as one of the five Chinese elements.

As a result of these design decisions, a tank group is relatively vulnerable to air attack and needs constant escort by anti-aircraft vehicles, when the enemy is at least partly in control of airspace.
For the same reasons immobilized tanks are also very vulnerable to enemy artillery fire from anything from medium sized mortar to a large cannon.
Some tanks have the ability to fire missiles through the main gun barrel, which gives it longer range and makes it useful against airborne targets.

The shot is usually fired from a smoothbore barrel; another configuration being the rifled "slug" barrel, which is used to fire a single projectile.
When fired, the blanks provide the illusion of a real load, with most of the same characteristics, but no projectile leaves the gun barrel.
It should be noted, however, that it is still dangerous to stand in front of a shotgun firing blanks, as wadding, powder particles, and hot gases may be expelled (not to mention, of course, the risk that the shooter has mistakenly loaded a "live" shell instead of a blank).

 John's Fire Witch review
There isn't a lot to John's Fire Witch; it's relatively short (250 moves or thereabouts required, and much of that is traveling hither and yon) and the puzzles and characters are simple.
John's Fire Witch was designed as a short diversion, and it fills that purpose--and more elaborate descriptions or development of the plot might distract from that purpose.
On the whole, John's Fire Witch is not especially remarkable for anything in particular it does right, a few clever puzzles aside, but especially for a first effort, it deserves recognition for the many things it avoided doing wrong.

A shotgun is a firearm typically used to fire a number of small balls, the shot, from a smoothbore barrel of relatively large diameter.
The energy of any one ball of shot is fairly low, making shotguns useful primarily for hunting birds and other small game, or as close-combat weapons or defensive weapons where the short range ensures that many of the balls of shot will hit the target (see riot shotgun and combat shotgun).
Unlike rifles, however, the long shotgun barrel is not for ballistic purposes; shotgun shells use small powder charges in large diameter bores, and this leads to very low muzzle pressures (see internal ballistics) and very little velocity change with increasing barrel length.

Torches are often used as a prop in toss juggling: they can be flipped into the air in an end-over-end motion while being juggled, in the same manner as juggling clubs or juggling knives, but because of their sound and ´trail of flame´, they can appear much more impressive to audiences.
