The 'pocket lighter' was patented on this day in 1865.  Since that time they've come in all shapes and sizes, colors, band logos and more.  Pretty much everybody has owned a lighter whether they've smoke or not.  So have you kept it basic, or have you stepped it up.  More after the jump.


I can think of three really cool lighters I've owned.  One looked like a hand grenade, one was an electric start Calbri lighter than looked like something a pimp would own, and one was a Zippo that Driver game me.  What about you?  "Have You Ever Owned A Really Cool Lighter"? Answer here!
