Today, I found out that the built in lighter in my car does NOT in fact glow red when hot. I now have circles burned into my finger. FML

It's black hot, but I guess you learnt that the hard way :S feel sorry for you that would have hurt like a bitch.

Happened to me when I was 8. I feel your pain OP.

How can he? Your's is too small!

Wait, circles? Plural? Did OP not learn the first time?

Car lighters have a series of circles in the middle or at least mine does. I think that's where the multiple circles come from.

Well, I did the same once. Of course I was maybe 10. Doing it as an adult is rather more stupid. But, I still have sympathy as I remember how much it hurt!

Haha, I was going to say, "I wish I knew what #2 had said" -- but I think I can get the gist of it from the replies. :P

I'm thinking 2s comment went a little like this: "I'm number two, now suck my dick."

I've done it before. I burned my fingerprint off. Not exactly fun.

#65 is an untraceable criminal now.

I literally did this 3 days ago!

#77 As long as he commits crimes with only that one finger.

#97 As only the best crimes are.

its black hot the first time, push it again, it becomes Red. At least mine does, its still pretty hot both ways. As I touched it for a fraction of a second when it was black, it just turned my very top skin layer very dry and it peeled off with ease. when I did it?? Never burned myself to where I felt pain..you guys..you guys must gave held it there too long or put too much pressure onto it. Anyways, once I realized it was not red hot like in the movies, I pushed it again. When it popped back up it was Red, Smoking, Seemed Rather scary. I would not touch it Then..a warning to all of you who got burned and would think, well I wonder how hot is out now??

Wow now thats special. you deserved it

Some people have to learn the hard way.

how was op supposed to know? #2 is the special one

Lol number 2 is the special one? Pls this is lighter it is supposed to be hot. Op should have tested it with something that won't hurt

Or, when you go to touch it, you notice the peculiar sensation of HEAT COME OFF OF THE HOT LIGHTER!!!!!

Is Un cool the same as hot? No? .... *shuffles off*

What in the world made you think it was a good idea to stick your finger in there?? Especially if you don't know how those things work...?

Because you used the words "those things", your comment sounded so dirty to me lol.

#15 naughty naughty

lol 15. you can't stick your finger in those things.

Unless she lets you.

My thing is, chances are if OP was actually using one of the car lighters, they wanted a cigarette. Why not test it using the cigarette instead of their finger?

couldn't you just feel if there's heat coming out..? YDI man

Regardless, why someone would stick it on their body is beyond me.

LOL I just realized that its circleS. plural. like op kept touching it after he had already been burned the first time. yep, YDI

After doing it for years and having the colour as an indication, when it's black it could be malfunctioning. You feel slight heat but it's not that hot, and you're not really going to place close enough to feel a lot of heat when you're driving.

I know the feeling op :( I hovered my finger over it and could really feel any heat to I touched it hahaha worst decision haha

Ouch! Well now you know for next time. (Who besides you actually uses those anymore?)

Probably people who drive, smoke, and easily lose lighters.

most new cars don't even have the actual lighters(nine just has a cap over it for plugs) or ashtrays.

After searching my car, i found three lighters. If you smoke in your car, you will lose the lighter

I couldn't feel the heat***

You turned it on, you would expect it to be hot, wouldn't you? Instead of putting your entire finger in there maybe feel if there's heat first? YDI.

I've done that. My friend had apparently heated it up and set it down after lighting her cigarette (we were at the park and she forgot her lighter). I picked it up to put it back and burnt my finger.

Did it burn like a disco inferno?
