When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Fire with Them

If you find yourself in a pinch and need to figure out a way to make fire, here you go. 

When the apocalypse hits and you need to engineer a way to make fire in a hurry but find yourself clean out of matches, hopefully you can find a lemon tree and few other commonly found essentials instead. You may want to think about moving to lemon country now. Just saying.

In this incredibly clever video from North Survival, you are going to see exactly how to make fire using only a lemon, some nails, tacks, wire, and toilet paper. It’s like the stuff you could find in a zombie’s pockets after you hit them in the head with something!

So you have to give that guy credit. Even if he didn’t come up with this genius method of making a fire with a lemon, he still pulled it off on video. I feel if it was me I would have shocked myself, got lemon juice in my eye, and then still somehow manage to have burned a hole in my shoe, all while on video. People would be watching my lemon clip for an entirely different reason.

Regardless of where you find yourself during the apocalypse, come find me. I’ll have plenty of matches to go around.
