wrap it tightly around your wrist- works with a hundred dollar bill- seen people say- if you can burn this while it is around your wrist you can have it- it actually transfers the temp to your arm-

I saw this years ago on Mr. Wizard. Although, he used a handkerchief. My son absolutely loved this show and as soon as this one aired, we had to go outside and recreate Mr. Wizard's experiment. Thanks for bringing this memory back to mind.

What can you do paper so that if you drop a match on it you will see flames and not burn the paper?


Pour lighter fluid on your eyebrows, light them with a match, blow out the match and drop it on the paper.

I read all of everyone's posts and think I've thought of something new that makes since to me...

Spoiler for I'm not saying this is the right or even the best answer, it's just different


...the tricky part would be dropping the match just right...

you guys are making this way too hard. the question asks what you do to the paper so that when you drop a match on it, you see flames but the paper doesnt burn? The question has nothing about the match being lit, nor anything about a real fire, so to do something to the paper would be to draw flames or print a picture of flames and drop the match on it. Now you have a match on the peice of paper, you see flames, and the paper remains unburned. Work smart, not hard people.
