History of the match began to fade.
History became legend, legend became myth, and for two and half thousand years the match passed out of all knowledge until, when chance came, it ensnared a new lighter ... Santa.
*blah blah blah
blah blah blah*
and, to make a long story slightly longer, that is the tale of how I single-handedly saved a large group of little people from Santa's sadistic elvish genetic modification experiments.
But seriously, why spend time making a coherent intro when I know you're all here for one thing
I was, of course, talking about pictures of me.
Step 1: Match sizing
The dimensions of a regular strike anywhere match are 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm x 57.2 mm.
The actual match head itself is 4 mm long and 3.7 mm wide. This means that the actual match head is .6mm thick on one side of the tip (3.7 - 2.5 / 2 = .6).
The ratio of the length of the match head to the length of the entire matchstick is 14.3
Scale this up to a 96 inch long 4x4 and we have a match head that is 6.71" long and .84" at its thickest point on one of the sides.
