Can you REALLY start the Egg with Rubbing Alcohol or is someone pulling my leg?

I just tried this. Used about maybe a 1/4 and waited about 45 seconds before lighting. I'm using the standard 70% USP Isopropyl. I did in fact light, but didn't seem to be able to STAY lit.

Am I doing something wrong or is this an urban myth that I've just fallen prey to?

If true... just what is the "trick" for starting a fire this way?
