How can a book published in 1881 have described the situation in 1884? Unless it was by Jules Verne... (talk) 20:20, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Seems to say 1834 to me... —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 20:51, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Nope: "A book from 1881[6] notes that back in 1834 an editor had predicted[7] that despite the advent of "lucifers" (matches), the tinder box would likely continue to be common in the household, but that in fact, by 1884, it was only seen in museums." is what's on the front page right now. Clearly claims that a book from 1881 talks about 1884. NateEag (talk) 05:20, 15 June 2010 (UTC)


I think there should be a mention of Amnesia: The Dark Descent (a horror video game set in the mid 1800s), perhaps in a Popular Culture section. Wikipedian192 (talk) 08:08, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

In world cultures[edit]

This article deserves expansion into other cultures, e.g., Tibetan/Mongolian chuckmuck, Japanese hiuchi-bukuro, etc. Kortoso (talk) 17:02, 14 August 2015 (UTC)


Merge with fire striker? Lots of redundant material here. Kortoso (talk) 22:05, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
