Expert's answer
Enough to experience a mixture of red phosphorus and potassium chlorate (salt and pepper) in half a match head. On a dry finger with a piece of paper placed a grain mixture (no more than a match head), then another finger produce sharp friction (make a click). If the fingers were dry, there was an explosion, momentarily visible flash of yellow flame. For mixing using crushed separately red phosphorus and potassium chlorate salt.
