Tiny potassium pellets are held within a pressurized chamber of inert gas. A trigger mechanism isolates one pellet in a breech and then jets the pellet out of a bore on a small burst of gas. The burst propels the pellet a small distance on a trajectory that you've planned carefully, as it ignites on contact with air.

       Makes me want to start smoking! Probably best to learn with a pipe, so you have a larger surface to catch the ball of potassium.

       I can highly recommend smoking. It's really, really nice. These days, it also marks you out as an affluent rebel.

       Smoking sewage marks you as an effluent rebel.

       ^That's ok, just rub turmeric on the adjacent sides of your index and forefinger, no one will ever guess that you're a non-smoker..

       Nitroguanidine is better, the yellowing penetrates several layers of skin and lasts for ages. Easy to get, it's in many types of airbag. 2,4 - DNPH is just as good, but don't let it dry out. Or picric acid ... easy to make.
