    Carrying matches would be a lot less to carry.....

    Northern survival? How often you they have a lemon? Interesting science experiment though.

    Some of the responses are hilarious. You can actually do the same thing using a battery and steel wool.

    Yep. I started a fire last month with steel wool and two wires and one of the batteries from my vape rig.

    I always carry a lemon, wire, steel wool, 5 zinc nails, 5 brass what evers, and toilet paper. I guess it's nice to know you can still start a fire if you forget your matches or lighter.
