Best ways to start a fire

Has this been done? @ChrisK would know.
  1. Fire-starter
    The long nozzle keeps your hand far away from the thing(s) you're lighting. Comforting.
  2. Matches
    You can toss the discarded match directly into the fire. Plus, they smell like birthdays, which we can all agree on.
  3. Ryan
    His cheese pita was effective.
  4. Lighter
    Your thumb gets too hot after a few seconds.
  5. Gasoline and newspapers
    It just gets so messy. Difficult to control.
  6. Billy Joel
    He said so himself. Impotent.
