Pictures of Matchstick Men

What will half-a-million matchsticks, fifteen gallons of carpenter's glue and a couple thousand hours of time get you? An amazing replica of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. One bit of advice, though. Remarks about seeing if the fireplaces are functional are not taken by the exhibit guards in the humorous spirit in which they were intended. And I've got the taser marks to prove it.

Clever little matchstick puzzle games (Flash). I managed to solve far solve, uh, let's see... zero of them.

These kinds of photos are always interesting to me. This Flickr photoset of ballistics includes this one of matchsticks. The entire photoset includes crayons, a bar of soap and more.

For the matchstick puzzles, consider this: the boxes don't have to be in a straight line.

That said, I've only managed four so far.
