The lo-tech Wooden Block of Matches

by ally - on December 14th, 2008

I’m fairly sure we can all agree that matches are a fairly primitive technology.  Even if you put them on a wooden block in a fairly attractive positioning, they’re still outdated.  Yes, they do have their occasional uses, but not enough to constitute spending $48.  Yes that’s right, spend almost $50 on 100 matches.  Sure, they made it interesting by making it one solid block of wood.  However, they’re still just little sticks of wood that flare up when struck properly.

    Not that I’d enjoy blowing $48 so quickly, but it’d be fun to light one of the matches, then put the flame to one of the still-attached ones and watch the fireworks.

    An accidental slip could be fifty dollars up in flames.
