    I am without a lighter. Simões keeps pilfering mine. I am currently sat with four. None of which are working.

    I'd like to build a small fire and keep it aglow in my ashtray.

    Anyone skilled in SAS survival techniques?

    And remember I want something manageable ... for e.g. the one below is more than I need ...

    Is the sun shining?  Get your magnifying glass out and aim it at a piece of paper in the ashtray.  Don't let Kevin see.

    Oh yes. I forgot about the Dragon. He's rather a handy cigarette lighter.

    However - there's a technique to lighting your cigarette from your pet Dragon. Which in fact I possess.

    However - he likes to try and scorch me. For fun.

    He's a laugh huh? neutral

    NB - The sun is definitely out smile

    If you have a lighter that has 'run out' of gas, you are in luck.  Firstly, take the metal flame guard off it, so that the gas jet is exposed. Hold down the plundger and at the same time flick over the flint wheel to ignite the gas that (you thought) had run out. You will find that you still have about another 10 - 15 lights left!

    Haunty - err neutral Is there something wrong with those guys? And was there a point? I suspect it was heads shaved all round afterwards ...

    Eagle - I'm currently non-submerged. On dry land. Feet on floor. The opposite of wet.

    RK - Yes but not through a lighter. I'm going to buy one now.

    I'm fed up with magnifying glasses, Dragons, sticks and flint rock.

    The smoke's non too good either neutral

    Darkside - nope. I wanted a lighter. And bugger the laptop. There's more chance I'd catch on fire.

    Janetta - just creates nicotine crumbs.

    I thought this question was answered about 10,000 years ago??
    No worries, other than the mag glass, I don't know the answer, either.
    Janetta, that's a creative idea.
