    Default Did you know - musings.

    Did you know that you can light a candle without direclty touching the wick with a flame? What you do is light a candle, blow it out, then carefully put a flame above the column of smoke rising up, the candle will magically light up

    Is logic acceptable on this thread? Just want to ask before posting...

    I imagine one could put lighter fluid on the wick and not have to light the candle twice.

    Philoctetes, this is not a fire starter thread, too many of those lately .
    I'm just keeping my findings light hearted.

    Did you know that celebrating your birthday is healthy? A study shows that people who celebrate the most birthdays, live the longest!

    It's not exactly magic, though. merely relighting the last volatile components from the heat of the previous flame.

    Sorry, I'm being more a disillusionist than anything. Everything has an explanation, though, in terms of Science, except perhaps the continued popularity of Eastenders.....
