Miss Information mixes business with pleasure

So, it's the holidays and Miss Information is enjoying some leisure time with her family, specifically her 4-and-a-half year old niece. Miss Information suspects that this adorable little creature has a scary personal agenda and was therefore not surprised when the wee girlie lifted her tiny head after dinner one night and asked what was the best way to set a car on fire.

Miss Information loves dispensing information, that's why she works at the Reference Desk. And while at the Reference Desk she does her best not to wonder why that nice middle aged lady wants books on satanic cults and Chinese sexual body language. She just finds out the information (or tries, at least). Still, she puzzled briefly over what answer to give her niece. In the end she opted for a lit match in the gas tank.

Then she went and hid her own car in a nearby wooded area.

Actually, running over something that gets stuck underneath the car too close to the engine, heats up, melts, smolders and catches fire will also work. Unfortately speaking from unexperience.
