    You will pay for it when you get the monthly bill.

    You are correct it is sticky like what you find in Flooded cable.

    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.

    Never tried that.
    In my emergency pack I have a gallon zip-lock bag full of these with a striker and flint. I can have a fire using green wood in less than three minutes.

    While camping these things are better than lighter fluid for starting fires. My oldest grandson thought I had lost my mind when I was pulling drift wood out of the lake to start a fire but he sure thought it was nice around 4AM and the temperature was down to the low 40s. He said, ďPa my belly is full of cat fish and my back side is warm, this is like heaven.Ē

    Now donít ask me how we went about getting those cat fish as some person wearing green might be watching this site and I sure donít want them to know my methods.
