Steelwool + 9V Battery = :)
« on: August 02, 2009, 11:21:19 PM »

I orignally saw this on some show on the Discovery Channel, if you rub a 9volt battery it'll start sparks which if you blow will start a fire
I also saw this on http://www.youtube.com

So, have you got your own 9 Volt and some steel wool yet?

the real challenge is making fire out of naturally found objects.  unless genetic engineering has really taken off since the last time I paid attention, 9 volt batteries do not grow on trees.  a pity, because the countryside is overrun by steel sheep.

I don't know about that; my family farms 9 volt batteries, and makes damn good living doing it too.
