A matchstick that can stay on fire underwater!! (It looks like it goes out and then lights again when it is brought out, but it is still on fire under water it’s just you can’t see it.)
I’m not quite sure how they do it, but my guess would be that the match stick is made up of some chemical which releases oxygen, allowing it to keep burning underwater. aswell as having some sort of insulating material to keep its heat.
Gunpowder does the same, incase you’re watching a movie and they fire a gun in outer space and someone says “that’s so unrealistic there’s no oxygen in outerspace” just tell them they’re wrong. Gun’s can fire in a vacuum because the gunpowder itself has oxygen in it.
