(and lived to tell about it)

by Ron Kurtus (revised 14 January 2014)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What does walking on hot coals prove?

That you are somewhat crazy

That your feet can take the pain

That you can overcome your fears

2. Is it dangerous to walk on hot coals?

Yes, if the coals aren't specially prepared

No, you can walk on anything, if you hypnotize yourself

Only if you lose your concentration

3. What do people feel after walking on hot coals?

A burning sensation in the pit of their stomach

Elation of doing something so scary

Cheated out of the money they paid to do something so foolish
