This is an incredible science trick with smoke and a flame. Try it at home.
that is the best lighter trick I have ever seen. Great work
There is not a single bit of trickery here, its fire science pure and simple. Smoke is a result of incomplete combustion, meaning its un-burnt material. All smoke needs to catch on fire, or to burn, is the proper amount of oxygen and an ignition source, in this case the lighter. The fire triangle as itâ€™s called must be met, and once that is done, you have flame. In this trick as someone would like you to believe, the blown out candle produces smoke for a moment, which becomes thinner and cooler as it rises, then as you can see introduces and lowers the flame until the right parts of the fire triangle are met and bam, the flame will travel the source, meaning the smoke back to its origin, the wick.
Still cool to see if you never have, but a trick its not.
i call shenanagins
Just because you understand how something is done does not mean its not a trick. If that were the case there would be no “tricks” at all. trick as defined is this :A sly, dexterous, or ingenious procedure fitted to puzzle or amuse. This is a great trick
That’s why forest fires are so dangerous. Until they are completly out and stop smoldering, like the candle, any lil flare-up can restart the fire.
