Hawaii 5-0 teaches THINGS

thing I did not know: the family and I watched Monday's Hawaii 5-0 and saw this - a fire made using a battery and the foil paper from a pack of cigarettes.

Next thing I know, my 15 y.o. puts a battery in a glass bowl, grabs the foil wrapper from her pack of gum and rips two strips off, holds each strip to the ends of the battery, pushes the other end of both strips together and hello, instant spark, smoke and then fire. Maybe y'all know about this, but it's the first I've seen of it:)
