Making Fire With a Chocolate Bar and a Coke Can
« on: June 09, 2011, 11:48:33 AM »
Fire from a Can of Coke and a Chocolate Bar
Yes, you CAN make a fire from a can of coke and a chocolate bar! It really does work -- there are emails at the bottom of this page verifying this.

This idea was originally proposed by Andre Bourbeau to Rob Bicevskis about 6 years ago. I don't know if he is the one that came up with it in the first place. But thank you to Rob for bringing this method to my attention. The original concept was to investigate unique and unusual ways of making fire using everyday objects that one might be carrying around, should one be unexpectedly stranded in the wilderness. Of course, prudent hikers will probably be carrying a lighter or matches! :)
This sounds sort of weird, and I'm trying to figure out a situation where you'd have a chocolate bar but no matches, but whatever.  Apparently lots of folks swear this works.

I think Mythbusters did this a few years ago.  Basically, anything that polishes the can will work.

Yeah. A polish that I don't want to eat might be more likely to be around when I need it.  ;)
