    But it doesn’t mention how to start a fire under the Republican Party.

    Bunch of wet noodles.

    The most important way was completely ignored. All of us are aware of this simple truth:
    Simply tell a mouthy Liberal that Cangress is going to abandon all efforts at Gun Control.

    Not even thermite grenade enemas would do the trick with that bunch.

    interesting article. If you’re going to pack a firesteel throw a couple of cotton balls saturated with vaseline into a zip lock. They’re surefire if you fluff them up and hit them with a spark. Only the hardcore carry char and they spend more time freezing.

    @5 – macko – Browsing YouTube, dryer lint is good with a firesteel, too.

    If you don’t have fancy kindling, and you’re out in the woods, YouTube suggests finely shredded birch bark.

    This guy even does WET birchbark (jump to the 10 minute mark):
