What I'm telling you is that your wife is technically right. The blue part of the flame is the hottest, not the white part. But a manly man is more concerned about the real world – as we saw above (show her the graph), there`s more total heat in the tip of the flame, so that`s the part you want to use to light the fire. In other words, while she`s got a better grasp of theory, you`re going to get the fire lit sooner. I`m not saying you won`t get an argument as far as your bet goes.
