el duco has a simple, and safe self lighting match,
i found that a good way,to light paper, is to use a flint operated flash thumbtip, loaded with a little flash wool,hold it behind a sheet of thick flash papper, ( writing quality),
when you flick the tip, the sheet ignites. drop your hand with the tip down, whist holding the sheet by the non burning side, then ditch the tip, as you throw the last few inches of paper up in the air.
Bongo also has in a lecture, an idea he came up with for igniting a sheet of paper. if i remember, ( and i do hope he wont mind me saying this!!) you baisicly have a match in a standard lit match producer,atatched to the back of the paper, however instead of pulling the match from an atatched gimmic, you stick the match on the paper, and pull away the gimmic, thus striking the match, ,and ignighting the paper.All evedence burns away, leaving you almost 100% clean.
