    I can't be sure that how stuff works is such a reliable website after this:


    Lightsabers to light cigarettes, slice toast, serve cake? It it's hot enough to light a cigarrete, won't it burn your food itemsTrim hedges? your hedges would be dead.

    Howstuffworks is a realiable site with correct information. But that article is a joke. It is supposed to be funny.

    I have seen mistakes in How Stuff Works. Most notably (even after I sent in suggestions that they change it) the proper operating prionciples behind tandem rotor helicopters.

    I saw the lightsaber bit too. It was a joke. I got a chuckle out of it.
