I got a Zippo yesterday and have barely put it down! I've learned one trick so far cuz its the only one I know of. You just hold the lighter in your hand, two fingers on top coming from the side, thumb on the bottom, then you pull your fingers down and your thumb slips up so you're gripping the bottom half of the lighter and the lid should flip up.

SO FUN!!!! I havent put it down, my mom is going crazy with the constant CLICK!

So do you think lighter tricks are fun? Whats your favorite?

I'm attracted by the potential for reckless abuse of power.

I have a few lighters... My favorite is one that is silver, shaped like a raging stallion. Push it down, the stallion opens its mouth and more or less is now a mini blow torch. Hee hee frickin hee! *twitch*

I really don't like the rickety little disposables... I'm always paranoid that they're going to break in my hand.

Yeah, it's sort of like a snapping motion. Another one that I used to employ would be snapping your fingers at the flint and lighting it. Sorta neet. But, I've run out of fluid for mine. Plus, you get that fluidy taste when you light your smokes.

I dont know any (and don't smoke) but I can do the thing where you light a match and flick it in one smooth motion. I just had to prove someone wrong, because he couldn't do it and was blaming the matchbox, so I grabbed the box and proved it could be done on the first attempt except that the match landed on my housemates jumper (sitting outside a pub, not inside or anything). unsure.gif

(No jumpers were harmed in the making of this post - the jumper concerned fortunately survived unsinged)

I can do the thing with the Zippo where you flick the lid open by swinging it at your thigh and then on the upward swing you brush your thigh again and light the wick.

Hmmm - does that make any sense to anyone other than me?

Seeing as the amount of accidents you have with anything flammable, Snugs, I think you should put the Zippo away...

Am I the only person who thinks Zippos smell disgusting, by the way?

They really dont smell that bad. Its not as bad as having to go to a gas station, grrrrr. I love my zippo!

Yeah!! Wee! I tried to do that, but, my pants didnt like it so much, not to mention the fact that it was out of fluid and wouldnt light....
Hehe, I need to go buy fluid otherwise my bro is gunna pitch a fit for stealing his!

I dont think I've seen that one.... I dont smoke either though, lighters are just fun. happy.gif

I can do the snappy finger lightly thing.... (sorry I just woke up, cant word things the right way) but it doesnt work much when you have to do it six times because you've run out of fluid and it takes that long to get it to light up.

Thats easy though. I'm not sure about the fluidy taste o.0 I wouldnt.... think it would make it taste fluidy, and if it did not long enough for it to matter. It cant be worse than a match, can it? Matches are sulfer-y gross

Oh my, that sounds scary! But my mom has like a mini nokia cell phone and when you press the antenna down it lights and makes annoying ringing sounds forever. .... Its not really a cell phone o.0 Heh. Just a lighter. An annoying one!!

QUOTE

I've never had one break.... except when you keep it light for more than 30 seconds like it says on the warning label and the little top parts fly off.... *cough*

Other than that it's all good. They're just ugly and annoying though.


Wee!! That was alot of quotes I had to do....

True - although as yet, none of my accidents have been Zippo related.

I don't know any tricks, but burning things is fun. I keep one of the junky little BIC lighters in this nifty little pocket on my favorite hat all the time.

I've noticed that most people who I know carry lighters, and not a single one of them smoke.

And that carrying a box of matches with you wherever you go makes an annoying racket.

And that everything burns.

I need a cup of coffee.

Oi. I have no lighter yet, but I do enjoy flame. I have a bunch of candles in my room anyway...we were never really taught to light matches at our house. I learned from a friend of mine. tongue.gif So I don't have a lighter, but someone I know has one from New Orleans that says "F*** YOU!" when you open it. laugh.gif

I had a dream last night that I was in a room of propane mist and I was lighting those black and red stick lighters everywhere, just shooting them off like guns. And it was all because of this thread.

Can you personalize those talking lighters? I want mine to say "crap" every time I open it. Don't ask me why. It just sounds like something I would say after opening a lighter.

Zippos are really cool.

I like the one that John Travolta has in Pulp Fiction.

I like my Zippo.. its fun... like when I use it to make loud banging sounds by blowing the lid open... all I do is light it and then close the lid... the lid doesnt shut right so it burns and slowly builds presure inside so that it blows it open! Its so cool.

Have a friend who collects things that produce flame. I'd never actually SEE her take anything at the pub but when we arrived back at the apartment she'd produce 4-10 lighters/matchbooks. It was like magic. We had a fishbowl at the front door for her "finds".
Would she be a pyroklepto maniac ?
or is that someone who steals the fire itself rather than the firemakers?

That was all she'd nick. As far as I know only her now-ex caught her at it. Only because his favorite lighter was magically found in the fishbowl a couple times and he got a bit paranoid about it.

my friend did this one thing where you take the lighter

oh i should explain a few things first..

ok..look at the top of the lighter

the little wheelything is like eyes

then the hole is the nose

and that cracked out half circle thing is the smile

anyway..

i have no fircken clue wtf he did..

but like you turn the fireyness on and imprint a smilie on yopur arm..or..somewhere

um...

i know the other one..\

where you cup your hands,then someone holds down the lighter fluid button and then you light it and open your hands and its like holding flame

thats it.
