After Dinner Smoke with Paul Horan

As a follow up to Jailhouse Cuisine parts one and two, Paul shows you how to light up an after dinner smoke without matches, a lighter, or rubbing 2 sticks together. Smoking seems to be pretty big in the bmx world these days, so I’m sure a lot of you will find this trick handy.

Paul is a professional. Do not try this at home. You could get electrocuted or die.

What you’ll need: an electrical outlet, 3 pieces of pencil lead (1″ long), toilet paper, a Q-tip, and your smoke of choice.

Step 1: Take 2 pieces of pencil lead and carefully put them into the electric outlet. Don’t touch both at once or you’ll blow up.

Step 2: Twist some toilet paper into something that resembles a cigarette and pierce your 3rd piece of pencil lead through the end. Then take your Q-tip and fray one side. Roll up a loosie, put it in your mouth, and get ready.

Step 3: You’re going to complete a circuit by touching the 3 pieces of pencil lead together. When this happens you’re going to create a big spark that will light the Q-tip. Ready?

Step 4: Ignite!

Step 5: You should now have a flaming Q-tip. Only one thing left to do…

Light your spliff, relax, and thoroughly enjoy the sweet sweet smoke which is surely killing you slowly. What the hell, we all gotta die sometime right? Speaking of, you can check out Paul’s introductory edit for The Make right here.
