Starting a fire with a paper clip
« on: June 15, 2006, 07:44:09 PM »

As most computer hackers know, some people actually go into the woods and
spend the night (this is called "camping"). Since most hackers have no idea
what this entails, I will skip to the important part.

The most important part of "camping" involves gathering wood in a pile,
igniting it, and then poking the burning pile of wood with a long,
cylindrical stick periodically. Usually this involves sitting next to or
crouching down near the fire. The hardest part of this unexplained ritual
is the initial fire ignition. Use the following steps to perform ignition
of your ritual fire:

 - Place wood in pile near a rock you can sit on.
 - Make sure there are small dry twigs at the bottom of the pile.
 - Place battery among the small dry twigs.
 - Bend a small paper clip into a "U" shape.
 - Using insulated pliers, clutch the bottom of the U shape of the paper clip.
 - Move paper clip until the two points at the top of the U touch the metal
   strips of the battery.
 - As paper clip catches fire, try to catch twigs on fire by moving paper clip
   around. You may have to repeat this step a few times.
 - To assist in ignition try adding leaves onto the twigs.
 - Once fire is started, drop paper clip and remove battery from fire with the
   insulated pliers.
 - Sit on rock and poke fire with stick periodically.

this seems like fun, but paperclips dont burn...they are metal...maybe one could wrap the clip in paper?

Nice plan, but you also run the risk of the battery exploding. 0_0

Seems like it would be a better idea to bring the two ends of the paperclip together and see if you can get an arc going on for fire purposes.
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

Paper clips WILL burn. The current is enough to bring it to the needed temperature. I've done this count less times in school with staples.
