Relighting Trick

(YouTube link)

This looks way cool. You can ignite the particles in a stream of smoke! It's not so cool when you think about how this would work in a burning house. -via reddit

I've shown this trick to many people, but I've always done it with a match, not a candle. It's the fumes, not the quality of wax on the candle. Pretty neat close up though, and scary as hell when you think about what can happen under the right circumstances.

I think this is a good demonstration of a phenomenon that has been showing up in TV crime shows for a couple of years - "flashover?" - though in that case it is addition of fuel (oxygen) rather than both that and more heat.

Ha! Saying that something is older than YouTube is a pretty weak analogy (5 years).

My apologies, GinePanino. I suppose I was the only person who is not familiar with this trick.
