Nobody majors in science. They major in physics or chemistry. Science is all of everything ever.

Except religion.

This is the effects of the enthalpy of a reaction. The reaction of the compound on the stick releases enough energy to light them match when taken out of water while the reaction is still occurring.

perhaps....phosphorous?

I'm thinking it's something like this:
>orange stuff you see in the water is some sort of oxygen compound being dissolved from match coating
>reacts with water to produce oxygen, hydrogen, and water (probably something like 2H3O3 + 3H2O -> 3O2 + 3H2 + 3H2O, might not be properly balanced, can't brain today)
>match reacts with oxygen to burn

could also be KOH.
