I have an instrument that can make fire just about anywhere, and it's way more practical and's called a lighter >:) Great video, TS! Things like this are lost on most of today's society, sadly.

To be really true about primitive technologies he should've filmed this with a potato. :)

In the event that I go out in the wilderness I'm going to get a really big backpack and carry this guy around with me. O:)

If I made this this video the hut would look like a car wreckage, I'd get blisters from the wet stick that I wouldn't be able to get dry, as I wouldn't be able to find a rock to dry it out on and anyway it would be raining. The blisters would get infected and I would die and that mosquito heard early in the video would bite my face and neck, the bites would become infected and I would die. The clay outside my car wreck would be soil and would catch fire in the event that I was able to make a fire. So I wouldn't be able to make a little pot to take out of the stream so I would get really thirsty and die or the stream would be directly down stream of a nuclear waste plant making the water radio active which I would drink and I would die, basically if I didn't take the guy with me in a large backpack I would die. I may not got to the wilderness. 8-)

# 5 No please don't go, sounds like you have horrible wilderness skills, and I've asked you before not to die. :'(

#6 I don't think I will, because if I did I would die. :D

My favorite thing to do is very backcountry camping.. but this is slightly more to the extreme but would love it all the same...
