Introduction: How to Light a Matchbook With One Hand

About: a long time member of Instructables, I only recently began posting my own. Feel free to check them out, rate, comment, question, and copy!

An old and well known smoker's trick for lighting matches with only one hand. It's easy to do, but I thought it deserved a video of its own. Always be careful with fire, and enjoy.

(Apologies for the poor video quality, my camera is lame.)

    I'm trying this when I get home! It's like magic!

    Lol, wow! The first time I've seen this step-by-step. The first match I tried actually 'broke', it like ripped so I couldn't light it, the second one lit the first time I flicked it and honestly it kinda freaked me out! It popped really loud and I almost dropped it! Cool trick though!
