Science teacher lights fire with the tip of his finger at Australian school

A science teacher started the fire on a bunsen burner with his finger by using 100,000 volts of electricity at a school in Gosford, Australia.

The teacher, Jacob Strickling, was inspired by an act he had seen on Australia's Got Talent to use sparks from the silver Vandegraaf generator to light gas coming from the burner on August 20.

Jacob commented on the experiment saying "It was quite painful as the sparks [were] a little bit like sharp pins being driven into my finger."
