A "Vertigo" pipe lighter I got on the cheap from Pipes & Cigars over a year ago has been going strong ever since I stopped buying wooden matches.
Don't play with fire, kid. Only you can prevent forest fires.
As a child, I once accidentally caught the neighbors forest on fire than ran and hid under our row boat. Nobody ever found out.

Not surprised. I'd think unintended death and destruction have followed in your wake all of your life. Row boat was wooden, no doubt?

Be careful with fire, Goose. Scary stuff.

I also used to enjoy playing with cans of Instant Start, turning them into blow torches.

I bought this antiqued silver zippo with insert last year. I figured it was going to get distressed living in my pocket so it might as well start that way.

For some reason, it had a label warning me to keep it away from Jack-o'-lanterns.

No, that's a baby quail or roadrunner. Geese don't have Mohawks.
