Those of us who are avid hikers or campers probably wonder how useful we would be in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Even if you are not someone who regularly partakes in outdoor activities, this particular life hack will still come in handy someday, which is why everyone should take a moment out of their day to watch this helpful clip and commit this trick to memory. Few feelings are worse than the one that arises in the pit of your stomach when you realize you made a trek into the woods without bringing the proper equipment. Without matches or a lighter, your lighthearted hike could turn into quite the dangerous endeavor. While you could always take it back to the good old days of rubbing two sticks together in an effort to create fire, you could decide to try this proven life hack instead.
Did you know that you can start a fire by using a battery and a gum wrapper? Even better, all it takes one gum wrapper to create three helpful fire starting tools. After you have carefully separated the gum wrapped into three sections, it is time to cut them into an hourglass shape.
Once you have done so, simply press the ends of the wrapper onto the each end of the battery, but do so carefully, as you will be creating fire. Tricks like these never stop coming in handy. Being stuck in the woods without a method of creating fire is a nerve racking experience, one that should be avoided at all costs.
Tricks like these are helpful in any number of different situations and should not be considered the exclusive domain of the outdoors-man. For example, this life hack could help to provide light if you have experiencing a power outage.
Or perhaps you are looking for a way to impress your friends at your next get together. Just imagine the amount of bar bets that you can win by learning this trick. If you play your cards properly, you may never have to pay for another drink again in your life! The point is, you do not know when you will need (or want) to do a trick of this nature and all it takes is a few moments to become a pro.
Since you do not know when the need for this life hack will strike, your friends and family will also be unaware, which is reason enough to share this helpful clip with as many friends and loved ones as possible.
