baron-pierreIV Posted October 22, 2013 Author Report Share Posted October 22, 2013 (edited) /\/\ Good article find, JMark. Indeed, it's very possible that the back-up system may have been used. But they had to time it so perfectly that it would be seamless. And from where we sat, there was no indication that unseen burners were indeed lit that night. (I did cite that the Official Account claims it was the arrow that lit the cauldron.) But again, whatever that first Wikipedia account was and going by the Joan Bozzo Mullet link you found, I think that so memorable and iconic was the moment that (1) something is always lost in translation (from other Spanish/Catalan accounts such as this one); and (2) anybody even remotely connected with the stunt, magnified their part in the whole deed...and then conspiracy theorists who refuse to even give primary credit where due, tweak the minor accounts and expand otherwise supporting roles to greater importance. I blame the Illuminati. There must've been a dip in the usual Illuminati activity that summer of 1992; so spinning the cauldron lighting story was as fulfilling an activity as any.
