Start a Fire With Aluminum Can and Chocolate

I would have never thought you could start a fire with an aluminum can and some chocolate.  This steps in this video are actually quite easy as long as you have chocolate and a pop can.  It starts with simply wiping the chocolate on the bottom of the can, then wiping it off.  Repeating this process will make the bottom of the can polished so it reflects the sun.

Although using the can and chocolate to start a fire isn’t near as powerful as using a lens or magnifying glass, it will certainly work if those are the only items you have.
