So, today is Wesak Day and we get to go see some devotees devoting. Ha ha.
Anyway, before we reached there, I had a brainwave (while in the toilet). Knowing that a lot of joss sticks would be burnt and people quieuing/jostling to light them from the candles, I thought, why not make those joss sticks self-ignite?
Just like the matches, where the tip is dipped with some chemical, you can do the same with the joss sticks. Strike them on the matchboxes and they light up!
But then again, we can see some tough monks striking the joss-sticks on their face to light them up ala those cowboys you see in the movies.
