karandras, I smoke the occasional cigar so I know what you mean about needing a light sometimes. But, I've even had other situations where a light was needed. Good example: I was taking a Hapkido weapons class and the instructor decided we should use the wooden practice sword, the Mokgum, to extinguish a candle flame without touching the candle. (I know, this sounds easy ... but it's not, especially with a downward stroke). Anyway, he had the candle all set up on a wooden stand ... but no lighter or matches. Seventeen people in the group ... no lighter or matches ... EXCEPT I had a trusty Bic and some matches in my truck.
