Where else can I find a convent way to light my cigarette when I don't have a lighter, but of course the internet.

How to make fire with a potato, in 5 mins / Hell I've even tried that line, when a girl asked me for a light. "Shes like do you have light?" "Yea i got a potato do ya got 5 minutes?" ~_~only problem was I didn't have a potato and the other various accessories on hand to create fire so I just whipped out my lighter. I thought it was a good conversation starter.
My point was the idea of starting a fire with a potato is pretty cool and the reason it works is based on science of how the different chemicals in the toothpaste, salt, and potato react when mixed together. Got some crazy Macgyver type of knowledge that works POST it, <_<

No. I think this is a hoax.

I think that during the timelapse he snuck a 9V battery in that potato or something. I don't see it happening with that kind of voltage.

who knows what kind of shit was in that toothpaste...and besides it depends on current aswell...a fire can be achieved with a low voltage but a reasonably strong current.

Here's a hint: Most of these kinds of videos on the internet are hoaxes.

The more ridiculous and tedious the task is, the more likely it is to be a hoax. cxu ne?

Oh! If you want to see some really amusing projects that are unlikely to work in real life, check your local listings or DVD shop for The Red Green Show. Those Handyman Corner bits crack me up. He builds everything from a robot butler to playground equipment, to making an add-on room for a house out of a bus. All held together with the finest quality duct tape.

If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

And if it ain't broke,
you're not trying.
