So some of you may laugh at this but the other day I was watching someone make candles on youtube and It made me stop and ponder, wait how the hell does a candle really work. I mean it seems so simple, but without typing into the search bar right now ask yourself the same question.
Wax doesn't burn when you hold a lighter up to it, and a rope will burn up too quickly so how do those two combine to make a long lasting flame?
Take your googled answers elsewhere please I don't want them
Anyway it was one of those moments where a guy goes shit, there are so many basic inventions that man has used for thousands of years that I really don't understand.
