Condom + Water = Fire
Kinda. This is a quick 'survivalist' technique for makeshift solar fire-starting. Harness the power of sun. And at the same time you can make use of all those condoms* laying around.
*Recycling scumbags is either gross or eco friendly. We are not sure ourselves.
Inflate the condom and fill with water. Use a basic one. Ribbing and neon colors make a true survivalist look silly and may interfere with fire-starting.
The inflated and water-filled condom now functions as a magnifying lens, focusing the sun's ray onto the kindling. Combustion should come fairly quickly.
Not sold on the fire-starting powers? Don't worry. We were skeptical, too. That was until Mike showed us an article on the recall of Hallmark plastic snow globes due to their proclivity for arson.
Please perform away from combustibles such as gas tanks, hay fields and Southern California.
