This shirt is so sexy just strike anywhere to lit.

Quick thought: When you are asked to light a fire, what do you need? Some use a lighter, some might even try striking stones or rubbing sticks. But most people would use one of the perfect ways—with the trusty old matches.

Matches are made from small wooden sticks or stiff paper, with one end coated with phosphorous sulfide, which ignites when friction is applied on a suitable surface. The two main types of matches are safety matches, which only ignites when a specific surface is used, and strike-anywhere matches, which works on any suitably rough surface will do.

In modern matches, red phosphorous and sulfur are used as the most common flammable compounds. In strike-anywhere matches, both are included on the match head. So when you strike it on any surface, the friction activates the chemical reaction, lighting up the match. 

For commercial use, the preference is safety matches. The match head has the sulfur and the striking surface has the red phosphorous. Both also have glass powder, which helps in creating friction to activate the chemical reaction. When the sulfur and red phosphorous are combined through friction, it produces fire. 

Watch how matches work and how matches are manufactured. Get your geek on!
