I was going to guess #2 was the end of a CFL, but then it would be a spiral instead of concentric circles.

What it is -- Post #4

Fire, a handful of fire.

Here are a couple more shots taken very shortly after the one in post #4. In the first picture, you can see the silhouette of his fingers. In the second picture, the light is enough to see his profile and his hand and the ball of fuzz which contains the glowing ember.

Watch what happens on the next breath in the next post!

What it is -- Post #4, part two.

In the next breath, the ball of untwisted sisal rope bursts into flame! Now's a good time to get it away from your face, don't you think?!

These were started with flint and steel. The flint scrapes off a little sliver of steel and the energy of that scraping heats the minute sliver to incandescence, a spark. When this spark lands on a piece of charcloth, it glows like the coal on the end of a lit cigarette. The coal is enfolded in the nest of sisal fibers and blown into life, like you see here.

I'm sure you've all seen such pictures. I have fun looking at them and guessing what they are. Maybe you'll have fun guessing what these are.

I have a straping deal in shop. No crimper. You bend it over and tap closed with hammer. But I really did know what it was. Bah.
