Okay but what sort of a -hedron is that?
Technically speaking, it's not a polyhedron at all, but I would argue that it's a monohedron.

I'm impressed the sphere didn't fall apart while burning. I expected the glue to melt or some other structural failure.
He said in a comment elsewhere that he attributed that to the glue being low on the match stick, which didn't burn.
If that dude ever goes camping, I hope he takes a course on how to light a match and use it to start a fire first, because otherwise he might catch a really nasty disease from not being able to boil his drinking water.

I was disappointed that he used an additional match to light the ball, rather than striking the side of the box against the ball itself.
Dang it, Tristan already said that. Guess I should read the comments before posting my own...
