The boys had never tried this before. They actually thought it might just be a rumor that you could do it.
Everyone was able to do it. A tiny, black, pinhole would appear, then smoke and then....fire! This probably went on for a good hour and a half. Everyone got a real kick out of it. There is a knack to it - but once you have it you can't resist pointing the magnifying glass again and again.
Dangerous? Yeah, and very fun.
