I always misplace my lighters. How about a candle that lights itself. Not the candle per se but a glass holder/jar with an elegant built in lighter in which you could just plop candles, hit a button and they light themselves. No matches/lighter nec.

       "self-lighting" camping stoves are Baked. This wouldn't be too hard to do.

       What about those joke candles that you put on birthday cakes that light themselves again after someone has blown them out?

       Those only retain heat; they don't supply it

       why does everyone just want to //hit a button//? Using a lighter is sort of just *hitting a little button* anyway...[see link for lighter leash]

       Have a look at the linked fire piston. I'll have to make one of these. I wonder how hot they could go using different designs and materials.
