Icon of cool

The Zippo lighter has got to go up on the list of cool things you must own. It's in no way perfect. You fill it with gasoline by removing it from the case and dripping gas (petrol) onto the cotton absorbent filling. The gas will evaporate eventually, so you have to check it every now and then. If you fill it too much, gas will leak out, onto your leg. This hurts!

Anyway, once you get the knack of this, you have one cool lighter. Now, spend some time watching Hollywood movies to pick up new ways of flicking it open and lighting it. Preferably in a lightning-fast onehanded fashion.

Funny how the Apple logo added to a Zippo would just fit it in the current product range.
