Gluing two matchsticks together will show that the sticks will not be parallel to each other since their heads are thicker. Keep gluing the matches together and eventually, you will produce a giant sphere. The sphere will be able to produce a chain reaction if you light a single match in it. A man glued together 42,000 matchsticks after spending months on it and then set his efforts of months on fire using a single match.
It took few seconds for the giant ball of matches to turn into ash as soon as the fire spread from all the sides. It would have been depressing to watch the burn if it was not so satisfying to watch it burn from three different angles.
