matches: use cotton balls, wood shavings or newspaper to make a tinder bundle also use twigs and light that then put small logs on

lighter: pretty much do the same thing as the matches

flint:take a cotton ball and use it to light the cotton ball than put tinder bundle on

fireworks: take your fountain and put it on its side aiming at your tinder light the fuse and stand back

(speed every thing up with lighter fluid:D)

i know this is random- but fun - and dangerous - in my town there is this 2 mile sq. abanndoned brick factory. i took a 1 gal. milk jug and filled it with gas. put a fuse in it, light, and run like hell! it exploded with a 20 ft. radius.
