Introduction: How to Light a Matchbook With One Hand

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.)

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!
