I use BIC Lighters every day and Never Smell "Burning Plastic".
So if you folks really smell something, than something seems to be up.
Now that I think about it, I never smell my lighters fumes.

So the snow is interfering so much that it actually changes the flame to cold ?
Methinks more to this than meets the eye, it is like trying to believe jet fuel caused the towers to explode and act as if they had been burnt for years.
I can say that here, snow does NOT burn like in these videos.
Something is clearly different, and noticeable , JUST LIKE the CHEMTRAILS, errr CONTRAILS that people started noticing much more often, it is because something changed to cause more formation, and that something is being held out of the debate, just like here.
Currently it is snowing here. I just scooped up some snow and brought it in. I used my lighter and tried melting it, it did turn black and nothing dripped from it. If I let it melt in my hand, there was plenty of water in it. I am GUESSING the black is from the butane, I BELIEVE since snow is something like 80% empty air/space it evaporates quickly and also melts back into itself (wicks) rather than dropping. This MAY be just a kind of illusion, I don't know. Strange but it may have a logical explanation.
If anyone else chooses to make a video, then I am with a few others that have mentioned placing it in a pan on the stove. Try melting it at variable temperatures starting with Low Heat up through to High Heat, of course note any odd odors (when is smell-o-vision officially hitting the market again?) ...I digress...
Please try a test using varying temperatures NOT from a direct flame. I would do my own test but alas Clearwater, FL didn't get the snow this year.
Looking forward to any videos as mentioned

That's theorytically fine, But he held such long enough and his body heat still did not melt such and create a drip of water.
Apparently...up north (Michigan/Cleveland) the snow is acting pretty questionable...There are several of these videos circling around and I have a friend up north who confirmed this for me...he was a bit weirded out by it and I can see why as this is not like ANY snow I have ever seen...
Tested this where I am here in CO (snowed recently) and it doesn't do this...it melts and acts as expected leaving water behind...
Anyone else know whats up with this?
