#201: Start a fire like a caveman.
Due Date: 7-20-2015
Resolution: When I was a kid I was fascinated with the idea that you could start a fire by rubbing two sticks together. I would often try by grabbing two random sticks, holding them like a crucifix and rubbing them together like a mental patient.
I never even got a spark.
I thought this crucifix technique was a common convention in cartoon. Yet, when I went to find an image for this post all I could find were images of this spinning technique.
That must be what I was doing wrong.
Either way my goal for the year is to start a fire naturally without the use of a lighter or a match just so that I'll know that I can.
Update #1: The Conclusion.
I think the big problem with this resolution is that I'm an indoor person and have yet to find myself in a situation where I needed to start a fire since setting this resolution. Up until I moved I lived in an apartment and don't even know where I would have made an attempt.
Now that I'm living in a house, I guess I could try to light a fire with sticks in the backyard BBQ, it just never really crossed my mind.
As always, I will try this soon and let you know how it turns out.
