Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
There's no way that works. Reminds me of the dish TV antenna with the real telescoping antenna hidden behind.
Ted Taylor, a physicist at Los Alamos, used a home-rigged version of this to light a cigarette with the flash from an atomic bomb. http://awesci.com/nuclear-bomb-cigarette-lighter/ A rehash of this where the Big Damn Action Hero lights his victory cigar from the flash of the bad guys getting nuked would make for a pretty good movie ending.
Bic lighters cost less than fifty cents each, and work in the conditions you need fire most.
