so not all my experiments today worked. this one failed: lit tea lamp in ceramic coffee cup. pour a little liquor around it. any 40% stuff should work, I used tequila. clip 3 small carabiners around the edge of the cup, and put a stainless steel cup on top. theoretically, as the heat builds up, the alcohol should be forced out of the water and ignite, heating whatever's in the cup all the faster. but it didn't work. the water only got to a little over 100 degrees F from the tea lamp.
