Banbury, 1981, November 18th. Boom! A sneak Soviet attack rebelling against the START treaty talks started that day? No. Custard powder. Nine people were injured that day and heaven knows how many people startled, perturbed or jolted. Those people should not be moderately upset for nothing. We should use the effect demonstrated by the good people of Bird's custard. A lighter sprays an upward aerosol of custard powder into the air, electrical ignition.... fireball... If something creates a fireball, it is, by definition a lighter. In a pinch, you could also use it to make small amounts of custard.

       Seems to me that if you metered the flow properly you could get a nice flame instead of a fireball.
