Step 5: Feeding Time

Feed the non-lighting end of the wick through the hole. You may have to cut off the knot to do so. If so, retie it when the wick is fully through.

This is basically a classy Molotov minus the rag and replaced with a string and oil. Very good reimagining!

the only thing in common between this and a molotov are the bottle and fire... Don't evere missuse the one for the other. Don't evet even make a molotov
