Just watched an Interesting video of a guy making a fire
with a lemon and few nails..
Thought i would share it for all you survivalist types..

Enjoy...






Lemons have a secret capability to provide one of survival’s most crucial elements, and you would never guess what it is. With proper supplies, lemons can make fire. Yes, you read that right – fire. Whether you are out in the wilderness, or want to test this out at a bonfire, it works incredibly and is sure to impress. All you need is a lemon and the following supplies: six copper clips, six zinc nails, a piece of wire, and some steel wool.

Cool....but not very practical. Wouldnt it make more sense just to carry matches or a lighter ?

You could probably make sparks by rubbing the steel wool and nail together using friction. But if you have a spare lemon you don't want to eat.....

Don't forget 6 copper clips, 6 zinc nails and a moderate length of wire.

You know, things you carry around all the time!

Really neat. Funner than rubbing two stones together when you get lost. Keep the phone charged so you can look this up when you are lost. The phone will also give you directions to get to the store.

He has an orange cake video on his site. I have to try that next summer on the firepit.

Neat science trick but totally over engineered and pointless.. If no modern methods of making fire are available, you can rub 2 sticks together, it's as simple as that. It's a tried and tested method for thousands of years.

I've seen lots of "survival experts" try and fail miserably to start friction fires.

At least this appears to work.

A couple ordinary batteries from almost any source would be simpler.

9v and steel wool is the easiest combo.

Just a matter of what's available.

Rubbing wood together can easily start fire, the problem is most people who try it don't really understand how it works and they fail.
Get a wooden ruler (they were wood when I was at school), now use it like a saw on another suitable piece of wood and it takes only about 30 seconds to create fire.

Not if you live on a windy lemon farm in a SHTF situation.

These are not items I would normally stock, but still, it's a really cool thing! Thanks much for sharing this info. As a survivalist, I want to always have this kind of info under my belt.
