I just got an email about the rapidly disappearing matches we all know and love. I was told that due to "provisions" in the "Patriot Act" ( I love the ACT part!), that the matches are being discontinued due to their nature, being able to "light" fairly easily, they are now considered to be "hazardous material"? Anyone heard that before? What a CROCK! Now, I just went to the diamond match companies site, and lo and behold, they have changed ( green, and srike on the box now!) and if you research them even on Amazon they are saying no longer in stock and my not be able to get any more in the future!??? What the hey? I mean seriously ,...they are really outlawing matches? What next? Toy balloons? Ok, I can see where the matches may be hazardous, BUT if that stupid, moronic, freckled faced kid, loading the boxes would learn how to STACK and NOT throw them, then maybe the problem would be a LOT less? Most of us (older juvinile delinquents) know all about matches, making rockets and even clothes pin guns....They are matches and they BURN after all. Next they'll take away the clothes pins and paper clips too! My instinct is simple: Some old guy ratted us out! NOW, They know what can be done in the way of making shall we say ( a tad bit cynical here) specific items with those match heads? They can be ( and it has been tested) used to refill those old used primer cups too! Next....?
