We’ve all been there. You’re sitting at your campsite trying to light a match for a fire only to have the wind blow it out. Or worse, it just burns and doesn’t catch anything. This young survivalist may have a solution to that. In this video you’ll see how handy matches, q-tips, and oil can be. By soaking the q-tips in oil and glueing them to matches, set just under the top of the match, you’ve created a survival torch that will burn up to two minutes. These could definitely come in handy.
Our hearts go out to the victims and their families that were affected by this horrible explosion at a Fertilizer Plant near Waco, Texas yesterday. A man and his daughter were watching the plant burn when it exploded. The fear in the young girls voice really brings to life the severity of the situation. The explosion occurs at the :30 mark of the video with a thunderous boom and the young girl repeating “Please, get out of here, Dad, please get out of here”.
