4-23-12 flammable ping pong balls

A little plastic, collected in and near the school yard on the corner:

one-half SPORTCRAFT® ping pong ball MADE IN CHINA. For more than a century, ping pong balls have been made of celluloid, the earliest form of synthetic plastic, created not from petroleum but nitrated cotton. They will supposedly catch fire pretty easily, which was one of the drawbacks of celluloid for wide use.
