There's a whale of a difference between a broken match and one that isn't.
You KNOW the broken match is out. You may not be quite sure about the other.
But THIS is sure:
If a blazing match lights on an inflammable forest "floor," you have the start of
another forest fire. In five years ending in 1939, there was an average of
79.069 forest fires in the United States every year. More than three-quarters of
them were man-caused.
