When You Put A Gum Wrapper And A Battery Together Something AMAZING Happens

Even if you’re not an outdoorsy person or the survivalist, this 40 second video can end up saving your life (or make a camping trip much more comfortable). It’s a way of starting a fire using two common items you probably carry with you all the time – an AA battery and a chewing gum wrapper.

I’ve seen enough Bear Grylls to know that starting a fire is a priority when you’re lost in the wild, but rather than getting blisters on your hands by rubbing two sticks together, this method takes only a couple of seconds and it works every time. Feel free to try this when you go camping with your friends too. It will blow their minds.
