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.

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.
