    I hear this works better if you use a fresh dog turd. Just mold it into a ball with your hands, push your nut into it to make a void then put the rock inside, and by the time you`re done licking your fingers clean, you have fire.

    Shenanigans! They put lighter fluid in the orange when they panned away from the "experiment."

    It is not fake. The skin on the orange contains paraffin. It is not the citric acid that is flammable :P

    smaus : Ha-haa! spot-on!
    I now understand why they have all those wild-fires in the states.
    When the wind blows through the fruit-bearing branches in an orange grove, all them oranges kinda rub against each other, and the infammable vapor caused bah thuh frickshun starts a-flamin of the fruit. (etc...)

    If you have a lighter, you can set fire to other things with less preparation...

    The camera person was noisy. And somehow I actually feel dumb from watching this video.

    He forgot to warn the viewers to wear proper eye gear to protect us from the showers of sparks created after you rub a stick on a wet rock for three seconds.

    notice how the orange was out of view when it caught on fire? im betting that either the camera guy or the "host" (for lack of a better term) poured rubbing alcohol or something similar into the orange and then lit it on fire while it was out of frame.

    There is a chemical in the orange skin of an orange peel. It is flammable, but there is no way putting a rock inside and 3 seconds of friction with a stick will start it on fire.

    dude, ya gotta let your audience off the hook at some point.
    "tee hee, we don`t tell them that we added a flammable substance while the orange was out of view."
    Andy Kaufman, you are not.

    "Using Only An Orange" .... and a knife, and a rock, and a stick.

    Oh, and a syringe filled with isopropyl alcohol, and a strike anywhere match head on the end of the stick.

    In all honesty, the theory is sound. Execution would be difficult, but if you are somewhere and in a situation where you need fire, and only have an orange, a rock and a stick, well I guess you make it work.
