“Plasma is the clear, straw-colored liquid portion of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components are removed. It is the single largest component of human blood, comprising about 55 percent, and contains water, salts, enzymes, antibodies and other proteins.”
Wow…these are like…vampire lighters?? Do they drain people’s bodies to get the plasma for these babies? For the purest lighters, do they use plasma from virgins??
@eeterrific It is fair price, no? Eternal supply of spark in exchange for occasional virgin plasma. It becomes less troubling as the centuries pass. And provides endless entertainment in sunless coffin. Mwahahaha…
@eeterrific Plasma Physics - The degree of plasma ionization is determined by the electron temperature relative to the ionization energy (and more weakly by the density), in a relationship called the Saha equation. At low temperatures, ions and electrons tend to recombine into bound states—atoms—and the plasma will eventually become a gas.
@amillar7 No liquid fuel means that the TSA might let you carry this onto a commercial flight. For bonus points, leave the USB charging cable plugged into it; that’s a universal marker meaning “some weird computer doodad”.
@finalremix The only major drawback I’ve found is that the button on the side is easy to accidentally press and there is no cutoff for when the lid is closed, so putting these in your pocket is a bit scary. While the lid will protect you from burning yourself, I don’t think they were designed to be run continuously for long periods of time.
Really these fucked up lighters again ? really?How many of these crap lighters did you idiots buy?very disappointed here on twofer Tues. you shove this crap at us?hope not to see any helicopters of any kind either i need stocking stuffers get it? people don"t want to put welding plasma torches by there lips get it dummies?stocking stuffers ty Meh
@mellowirishgent My apologies i see 300 ppl. proved me wrong…I’ve bought almost everything you have offered in the last few weeks why post the same item 3 times in a few weeks?think the negativity here is 5-1 at a minimum…
I don’t see how they could fire a one-hitter, not that I’m an expert weeder or anything, but if they could they probably would never have had to dump them on meh. Anyways, there goes the great stocking stuffer for my reeking sons and nephews.
In the picture with the cap opened, that’s literally the widest it will open, so that means that unless it’s cigarette shaped and sized and can be fed through the side, it ain’t getting plasma’d. It’s less versatile than a lighter, and heavier, and more expensive, and, and, unless you got a serious cigarette habit or only light stick candles (good luck getting this thing down a jar), it’s not worth getting.
I ordered these the last time. They’re okay. Make a hideous but low-volume high-pitched squeal. Apparently there’s also no safety interlock, which means that they can fire off even with the lid shut.
Neat novelty, but the urge to see if it’ll shock the shit out of me if i stick my finger in there is frankly almost overwhelming me. Have to figure out who I don’t like enough to give away the second one as a crappy christmas present!
@msujp OK- let me get this right. IMHO a domesticated fox is basically a young cougar, with a nice set of cans, that can cook and clean. Why would you need to build an enclosure for that? Are you afraid she’d run away? That would be great for a two-for-Tuesday deal. I’m all in, add that to my list also.
@darksaber99999 No. The plasma looks oddly different. This could be due to the photonic phase differential phenomenon. In the normal spectrum of visible light (not IR), photons excited by the plasmon resonance and subsequently subjected to polarization filtration in a typical SLR scenario result in a distorted, almost surrealistic aura not detectable by the human optic array. Also, these lighters suck!
@darksaber99999 I guess you can go with Mr. Wizard’s explanation above which is truly bullshit yet so elegantly expressed, or you can just youtube Rechargeable Plazmatic Arc Lighter It’s obvious that the picture meh used was edited with a simple purple drawn ellipse. And these lighters are pretty much bullshit (gimmicky)- I do agree with Mr. Wizard on that.
@gak0090 Calling my post bullshit is somewhat insulting…to cows. I literally pulled those words together from the place only a proctologist would know. In fact, I should have included the optical polyp theory in my explanation of plasma physics. Simply stated, the optical polyp can exist without visual confirmation and yet still create an aberration when photographed in certain unique circumstances. For example, deep within the internal confines of the human body, say, the Colon.
@accelerator I’ve had a polyp in my colon only to discover, that in fact, it was a tiny portal to a lost dimension. A place where only a 1970’s Ginger resides on Gilligan’s Island, post breast augmentation to 42DD proportions. I sit and ponder the universe and how wonderful it is, if only I had a fucking charged plasma lighter to make a fire.
@gak0090 Too bad your alternate Gilligan’s Island Universe (GIU) can’t accommodate the Professor. He certainly could devise a generator of some sorts made from the static electric charge created from Gingers fantastic augments rubbing together. I could certainly see myself “helping” to generate the needed electricity. In fact, I’ve got to go now and ponder this concept…stand by.
@accelerator Genius-Right on! But perhaps we need a lightning rod of sorts to manifest the charge generated by those augments. I will kindly dedicate my staff so as to create my own plasma beam of ecstasy that will rain down photons all over her…truly creating a surrealistic aura and lighting a fire in a whole different way. Thank-you for your insight!
