That is AWSOME! Get enough of these potatoes and you can power stuff.

The question is....for how long?

This didn't work for me i don't know why

Also if you take brake fluid and mix it with bleach you'll get smoke

glad you guys like it.

the cool thing is that when tshtf the items will mostly be overlooked by scavengers and they should be available almost anywhere


Its like 'ninja technology', you could have it all right there in front of everyone and noone would know it...

"whats that dude doing?"
"i dont know, trippin out i guess"
5 minutes later...

Easily one of the coolest things i have ever seen/learned.

Seen this post earlier, went and did it, came back.
I would like to see and learn more of these...

kudos brother. good find.

Aint Chemistry Cool?

This is just another reason why science is one of those necessities of the true survivalist.

Its funny to think that the people that will be literally roughing it successfully when tshtf will likely be made up of some of the smartest people in the world.

Just think, you need knowledge of hunting, tracking, entomology, chemistry, mathematics, construction, tailoring, geology, topography, ecology, horticulture, martial arts, weaponology, and more. It is insane the knowledge needed to survive in a world gone mad, but know this, the more you learn the more prepared you will be.

Besides being a nice gimmick, it's really quite redundant.

Since this is in the survival section I assume maybe you could use this to start a fire if you don't have matches.

So you don't have matches or a lighter but you do have a potato, salt, toothpaste, wires and toothpicks??

yeah that makes sense...

reply to post by Chadwickus

from what somebody said any type of fruit may work although maybe not

You never know where or what will be around you when you may need fire and dont have matches. I think its highly possible to find those items and not find a match.

I call BS on this - these `improvised` batteries do produce a voltage - but its < 1 volt and just a few micro amps , certainly not enogh to ignite a tinder

or for that matter power a cell phone - or fulfill any of the other claims made in other ` wonder videoes `

That sort of reminded me of the Anarchist Cookbook. Very cool, thanks for posting.

But remember: when you're cutting the 'tato open, cut _away_ from yourself, not towards.
