Just discovered these in a gas station near my hometown Celle in N-Germany. If you are not familiar with BIC: it's a French company always good for cool cult-designs. You could say, BIC is the Swatch of lighters...

I can't see anything other than the fortune city logo plastered all over the place on the two links that you supplied. Plus, it tries to get people to run spyware (gator) on their computer which I won't do.

Forget it. I already embedded a picture of the lighters in my own reply mail.

People read the first post and click on them before they even see the lighters in the second one.

If you clicked on the link and think you have the spyware ad-aware is a good free program to remove spyware.

Very cool. Or maybe hot?
I wonder if Canada has those styles? BIC is the main lighter brand around here.

BIC is, of course, HUGE in the good ol' US of A. As a matter of fact, there is a plant right up the road from me in South Carolina that makes some of their pens.

Haven't seen any of these babies yet but I'll keep my fingers crossed! I've got a Pink BIC in my pocket even as I type (I find it to be the perfect color to carry constantly when you attend many social gatherings involving consumption of alchohol and tobacco).

Thanks for the Head-Up, Professor!

Doesn't look like they have the government mandated child protection on them, so we probably won't get them here. (thanks again bureaucrats) Safety first you know... Anyway, those are the bombay, and would be perfect for lighting some torches. Hope to find them here someday.

Hey, these are cool!

You just have to know Japanese to order.

you can run it through babel fish, but even then it doesnt look there's enough info to order them. the characters in the item titles say "raita." (say it out loud.)
