You can also use a block of clear ice during the winter...just shape it into a lens by rubbing it against some rough a treat :-)

Instead of carrying all that paper around (which is a fire hazard!) just take a photo of some black paper on your iphone (doesn't work on androids) Pull up the picture and using the same water bottle method... Works a treat. Alternatively (if space is an issue) take a photo of the bottle >:)

Thats also a reason why many "surivalists" or outdoor people carry a few condoms with them..they are multifunctional. You can carry a few liters of water in them, you can do the trick shown in the video to light a fire, if you hurt yourself you can cut off the bloodflow to the wound for some time and many other things you can do. A condom is like the addon to a swiss army knife =)

Great, another reason to label water bottles as potential weapons at the airport.
