Tip of the day : How to Start a Fire Using Carrots

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on October 8, 2007

How to Start a Fire Using Carrots
Learn how to start a fire with carrots, strawberries, and other combustible fruits.

Steps

1. Cut a 2 inch section from a carrot.

2. Slice the carrot into 4-6 lengths.

3. Form a tee-pee shape on a microwaveable dish.

4. Take a 1/8th of a cotton ball and and stretch it over the top of the tee-pee.

5. Put the plate in the microwave on high for 10-15 seconds.

6. The carrots will arc and cause the cotton to catch fire.

Tips

* If the after 15 seconds the carrots do not catch fire, stop and retry. Make sure the carrots are cold and fresh. If the initial arc (spark) does not ignite the cotton, retry with new carrots and cotton. More time in the microwave will not improve the result.

* If unable to form a tee-pee, chopping up the carrots into little pieces works a whole lot better.

Warnings

* You are playing with fire (albeit a small one). Make sure that you have some baking soda nearby to put the fire out, or even better, a fire extinguisher. Don’t burn up mom’s microwave. Start small and keep the flame small. Do this only with parental supervision.

Tip of the day:How to Shotgun a Beer

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on September 30, 2007

How to Shotgun a Beer
Trying to impress those drinking buddies? Here’s how to shotgun a beer from a can in less than 5 seconds.

Steps

*Hold the beer horizontal. If you don’t do this, the next step is going to make a mess.

*Take the can opener and puncture a hole on the side of the can, near the bottom. NOTE: If you think about it, when holding the beer slightly horizontally, there will be a small air pocket near the corner of the can, if you can puncture the hole in the air pocket properly, no beer will shoot out…

*Quickly place your mouth over the hole, so that you don’t spill any of the beer, and turn the can upright.

*Hold the can with your mouth on the recently made hole at the bottom, suck on the can until little or no more beer will come out and then open the can at the top.

*Start drinking as fast as you can.

*The ability for air to get in from the top of the can will force the beer out of the bottom at a very intense rate.

Tips

*Tip the beer at a 45% angle, so the top is facing down. Then poke your hole. This helps reduce most, if not all, of the spray when you first puncture the can.

*Alternatively, you can start sucking on the hole until you feel back pressure and THEN open the can.

Warnings

*Do this outside or over a sink, wouldn’t want to ruin someones carpeting

*Drinking beer this way can get you more intoxicated faster. Drink responsibly.

Things You’ll Need

*1 Can of Beer

*1 Can Opener, Pen, Knife, or any sharp object to puntcure the can.
