Make fire with just a pencil (and a transformer and 220V) [Lifehack]
posted January 26 2013 15:30.03 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Why i post this? I don't really know. For there has to be a very awkward reason why someone wanna make fire with this way, when he is at home. Nevertheless you can do it if you like as long as you don't fry yourselves...

OH! Here is a good idea where you can use it! Suppose that you're camping somewhere in the middle of nowhere and you wanna smoke a cigar, and you discover that you forgot your lighter. You can use your car's batter and a pencil... But... Damn, cars have lighters. Ok, suppose that the car's lighter is long dead, then you get the pencil... But... Damn... A pencil in the middle of nowhere?

Anyway, enjoy.

    • a 400V 10 miliF cap w a manual charger would be more useful and portable than this, although as deadly as using the mains atleast you can take it to somewhere you might need to make a fire
