You have one match, and are trapped in a cold dark room, you have an Oil lamp, a gas heater and a gas stove, which one do you light first? (All of them have to be lit)
The match, then the oil lamp so you can see, then the heater so you can be warm, and then the gas stove.
Right, I use my one match to light my ciggie. My ciggie in turn can light the oil lamp, which I need to see if there is a way out.
After a while, I light the heater, because I am cold and I am pissed off because my cigarette is finished.
I light the heater from the flame of the oil lamp.
Finally, I light the gas cooker because I am hungry - hey I've been here...like...FOREVER....without another ciggie and no way out, but I am warm and comfortable, but I am also hungry.
So I find a cockroach....as they tend to live in dark places.
But I won't eat it raw because cockroaches spread diseases so I have to cook it first.
So I use the burnt out matchstick to prong the cockroach and hold it over the gas ring..
I've got this all wrong, haven't I? FAIL FAIL FAIL!!! lol
(and - on top of it all - you get increasingly agitated that you don't have another match that would let you smoke the cockroach or anything else in the room you could possibly smoke). A cold, dark, room ain't pretty - but a smoker without a cigarette is real ugly!
oil lamp, so you can see how to light the other two.
You cant light any of them because they said you have one match, an oil lamp, a gas heater and a gas stove. They didn't say you had anything to light the match with. LOL
u light the oil lamp. Then you can light the rest of the two things with the flame from the oil lamp. Duh.
If you want any of the other things lit you would first have to light the match.
a cigarette, while I think about it.
That's a smokers point of view anyway
Izzy, besides feeling a whole lot better about being in a cold, dark, room; you could use the cigarette to light one or more of those other things - or else just start a fire in the couch (and both warm up and brighten the room). Your answer is definitely the wisest.
Is the pilot light in the gas stove on, and does the gas stove have an electronic ignition? (But I think Izzy's answer smartest - no matter what the real answer is... )
Well, it looks like we have a winner within the first few posts.
Oh well, I guess we can close the thread to reply.
I don't know about FIRST, but LAST would be the stove and heater. Those suckers are *dangerous* in an enclosed space!
What a choice I'm left with--hypothermia or carbon monoxide poisoning!

What is the speed of dark?My husband found this question in his fortune cookie tonight. Neither one of us knew how to answer it. And we certainly didn't know how it related to fortune. So, I thought it might be interesting to throw it out here and see others had to say.

A problem I see with many hubs is that they don't answer a question. So my top tips:-Your title is THE most important part of your content for SEO. -Choose a topic that's low competition (not a lot of other articles ranking in Google for the exact same thing.) -Answer a question. Or even put a...
