    Based on the location in the video, I would have used ice to start the fire.

    Re: Starting a Fire with a Lemon

    The chances of me having a lemon, copper nails, zinc nails, some wire, steel wool, and toilet paper in a survival situation are pretty slim indeed. But I would probably have my survival nive and a Magnesium striker. Takes some effort, but it works in a tight situation.
    This aside, the science is interesting. I am pretty sure we did a similar experiment in my chemistry class when I was in High School. Maybe College. Can't quite remember, but I've seen this before.
    Interesting stuff.

    Thanks for the Post OP.

    I can't say I would be carrying a lemon and the special nails but I do normally have other fire starting supplies with me . . . .
