You don't need a matchbox to get lit.
With one lowly office supply and some amateur archery skills you can light a match.
Tie a rubber band around the matches, pull the match back and fire for fire.
In one instance, the match stays nestled in its rubber trap — but in others it appears to fling free.
The question remains as to whether the other match is also lit across the room — so maybe don't try this in a dry desert or at a gas station.
Or maybe just invest in a lighter.
