    Hmmm..... the nazi that is a low rider. Will he never leave this community. I think not, I shal provoke him. I will poke him with a stick and let his wrath pour down on my like rain from the gods. why is he so angry? He most have been hated by his mother. The poor tormented soul that he is. I feel his pain and it saddens me, may he find peace somewhere down the line in his life. He makes me sad. |-(

    I think Nazi is having a midlife crisis cause someone else cut off his dong long before Ninja did. Being the mornoic White Power guy he seems to be, it was prolly a pencil sharpner.

    Seems the critical element here is sunlight. So its about as useful as an ashtry on a motorbike here in the UK. Cool concept though.

    I agree Mat. I was hoping for some sort of chemical can essentially start a fire with sunlight and any shiny object.

    this kinda exagerates it, though....
    first of all, it has to be one hell of a sunny day. the concave reflecting surface of a pop can would work better than a flat mirror because the convex mirrors use their parabolic shape to aim light at the focus of the mirror (which you should probably find mathematically to make this task easier)...
    secondly, this still takes a long time to do and is pretty much insane to start a decent fire with. notice that they are lighting a combustable fungus (i assume to be similar to lycopodium)...however, only a small amount of this may be ignited at one time....and the resulting flame is very short lived...

    if you`re going to need a fire....just take matches or a lighter.

    OMG, why the hell would they use Toblerone? That sh*t is heaven on earth; you don`t use it polish a f*cking can!!!!!

    Also, those instructions could`ve been cut in half, cuz it kept repeating itself. The first half of it was telling you to polish the bottom.
