When your beard catches fire while relighting a cigar stub just turn the lighter over and spray water on your face

The butane tank has a flexible membrane joining a separate water tank for emergency use. Flame comes out of one end and water out of the other.

       It makes you wonder how mankind has got so high up the evolutionary ladder without this. [+]

       [+] Yes, but how will I keep my moustache trimmed ?

       If you simply wait a minute, will not the problem solve itself ? By then, your beard will have burnt away completely.   

       Job done.

       Zippo needs this. Windproof lighter + 20knot nor'wester = 8" flame followed by unintentional exfoliation.

       The police should hand these out free to arsonists.   

       ( Klutzy mentally slow arsonists. )

       Or... or, we could have one of those squirting clown lapel flowers that doubles as a flame thrower.   

       That could be funny in certain circumstances.   

       Famous Jewish textbook Taamei Hminhagim written 250 years ago has a chapter with ailments many of which are followed by the signature: BU the Hebrew acronym for Tried and Proven. One of the passages reads: He who burns half his beard is an extreme fool. BU.   

       It is said that the author, upon reading this passage, held half his beard between his fingers, letting the end protrude beyond them. He then lit the tip of his beard which caught on fire, burned his hand, he let go and the beard then burned his face. He then quickly wrote BU and passed out.

       Had he been alive today, he would have been a truly epic halfbaker.

       Ahh, the old days, so this is how the ancients got around the lack of youtube...

       Now if you could build the contrary, a humidifier than shoots out an evaporate flame.

       A little experimentation has shown that it is actually very difficult to get a beard to burn in a self-sustaining way.

       Yesterday I tried a tiny little butane gas soldering iron I've had since last year, but never used for soldering with until yesterday. It has a soldering head and a blowtorch head, and I'd only used the blowtorch head thus far (mainly for heating heat-shrink tubing around wires), and not for too long altogether. For soldering, though, the first few minutes were quite good - quick shiny joints and good flowing of solder. Then I noticed it was starting to burn the tracks off the pcb! Admittedly it was Veroboard, but, still. I had to stop using it, as it was basically burning every joint off the board - seems to be way too hot for electronics.

       Perhaps a paraffin blowtorch would burn cooler, [ian]
