Better to light a nut than curse the darkness.

I was going to post the "edible candle" science-magic trick, but I see another commenter on TFA beat me to it.

Many foods are high in vegetable or animal fats, and such fats are flammable. To the Romerocopter!

Fritos also burn extremely well.

So there is a use for my least favorite part of the mixed nut bowl besides compost? Good to know.

Here in Michigan, we don't need new ways to burn things on Halloween. We invented Devil's Night. Once upon a time, Detroit, Flint, and Saginaw (City) were ablaze the night before Halloween. These days, it's not as common, but that's only because most of the neighborhoods in Detroit are already burned down, Flint isn't worth burning anymore, and the City of Saginaw is too dangerous for the arsonists to roam around at night.
