I've seen this done with candle wax: melt down a white candle, you can use tealight candles if you wish, and coat the match stick in the wax
wax somewhat waterproofs them like maybe 2 of 5 done will work right.

Now here's one better; clear fingernail polish: take your match sticks and coat them with the polish then let them dry, ive seen matches dunked and sit in water for 2 to 3 minutes and still light almost every time!
*****EDIT***
i just tryed to do the nail polish trick on normal matches, like you get from the liquer store, it DOES NOT WORK! use stick matches for this to work properly.

I like these ideas and will have to try them out. Especially the nail polish trick.

ya, i didnt even think of the copyright stuff! if people put stuff on the internet they "should" expect it to get used elsewhere, but if you look at scientology, they sued wikileaks for putting up the operating thetan scripts, dont think they won though.

It seems odd suing for copyright on "religious" material. I have always been under the impression that people are supposed to share their religious writings.

I will look in to that. I am interested in different religions and what makes them tick. Some I don't understand.

Yes he did. Not too sure where he was looking though.... Maybe the same place as Joseph Smith Jr.
