Same trick as fire walking, lets see him try that with a hot metal bar.. see if he's still smiling after that.

#7, when walking on coals you move pretty fast, you don't wand to stand still on them, it's different

Wood gives off heat very slowly. Without any calluses at all, you can pick up a hot coal and chuck it back into the fire within half a second, and just start to feel that it was hot - no damage at all. If you have a bunch of calluses, which seems likely for this guy, then it's not a big stretch to hold one long enough to light a cigarette.

He should quit smoking. But on the other hand.......

#8 The principle is the same; Wood and skin are poor conductors of heat.. Metal is a really good conductor, hence my comment.

You can turn your oven up to 220 degrees C and put your hand inside without burning it. But pick up a glass or metal dish at the same temperature and you're going to blister..

#13 but thats still different, putting your hand into the heat of 220C isnt touching something that is 220C...

Somebody should tell him smoking is bad for his health.

It helps to have really thick skin like he seems to have (from working with his hands). Not sure about idiopathic neuropathy as he doesn't blister (nerve damage doesn't prevent blistering).

#14 thats my point.. different materials have different capacities to conduct heat.. touching wood at 220C is different from touching metal at 220C.
