1101: Tell me more about the flamethrower . Any good for those impossible to kill weeks & plants ?

A friend of mine sent it over from the US: http://amzn.com/B002LH46M8  

You attach 0.5kg disposable cylinder like this one: http://www.equipoutdoors.co.nz/contents/media/coleman_lpg_bottle_465g.jpg  

You use an adapter like this to refill the cylindars: http://amzn.com/B000AMC5WO

Refilling instructions: google refill disposable propane bottles or similar.

People have been seriously hurt refilling their own cylinders (doing something foolish when filling). I only half fill mine (reduced pressure in the disposable canister).

Playing with any form of flammable fuels is of course entirely at your own risk.

My Mrs thought it was a stupid idea.  About 10 minutes later she wanted a turn.  She gave it back eventually.

I have always been hopeless with physical stuff so I leave that to tradesmen and/or the landlord.

I am sometimes agressive with other people, but only if there is a personal dispute of some sort. I don't like getting aggressive with people in customer service situations because I usually figure that they are probably overworked and underpaid.
