I second dryer lint. Definitely easy to light with a flint and steel (and a good demonstration of why you should clean your drier!)

comment Technique for lead solo climbing with rope
We don't forbid questions about potentially dangerous activities like this. Answers should just emphasize how dangerous it is and probably discourage anyone who has to ask/read about it from trying.
