Well, I made a home-made "torch" using two basic items. What you will need to make a "torch": -Newspaper -Candle Wax -Some type of lighter (Matcher, lighter, electrical outlet, etc) -A safe place to burn -Water, just in case Optional -Camera First take an old newspaper and cut it out so the dimensions are about eight inches by half and inch, four sheets thick. Take all of the sheets at once and continuously fold them in half. After you are done with that, soak them in candle wax for about ten seconds, making sure it is completely covered. Wait until it is completely dry. The paper should be like an accordian and be able to stand up on its side. From there, simply slight the corner. Here are the results, each picture was taken at twenty second intervals. Please note some frames were deleted to conserve file size. All together my torch lasted for about four minutes, not too shabby. attachment.php?attachmentid=20955&stc=1

I frequently burn things. I am always coming up with new ways of burning things. :evilgrin:

Lint works good for a fire starter, I'm not sure how bright it will burn.

So do cobwebs, they smell funny, though.

Yes... burning things :n0e:

My way is better.

Mr. Matt's Guide to Making a Torch -- Edited for Lazy People Such as Me

1) Pick up a wallet.

2) Take some money out of it and give it to the Woman (your mother, wife, slave, whatever).

3) Use a string of words which go something like 'buy me a torch, woman'.

4) Wait.

5) Receive the torch.

6) Put batteries in and switch it on.

7) Wave it around and make a 'cooo' noise. No, wave the TORCH around.

I prefer fire, it is potentially more dangerous.

I only burned off a bit of my fingernail, it really isn't as bad as you think. I'd show you a picture, but it isn't going to change your mind. :cry:

What scares me more than the fire is that as an American, you're legally old enough to sit behind the wheel of a vehicle.
