In the movie, a cool guy throws a cigarette butt into a puddle of gasoline, it flares up, and the flame runs along the gasoline path. The guy pretentiously turns away, and an explosion thunders behind him. But does this happen in real life? Is it possible to light gasoline from an abandoned cigarette?
It turns out they can. Well, or at least the basis for it or similar fuel. And with the help of protein, which can be found in the most ordinary green algae.
