For example, if you are in the middle of a heated argument over a parking space, give it up. How did you get in such an argument in the first place? It’s not worth it. Don’t worry, you’re not less of a man if you step back. If you obey basic rules of prevention, it is relatively unlikely that you will be threatened. However, it is possible that even though you try to stay out of trouble, it might come to you. What then?

Ever since the dawn of time the ability to make fire has been one of the man’s greatest achievements. Fire was a tool that drastically influenced the quality of life. In today’s modern times there are a lot of tools that can help you start a fire, from mechanical to fuel based tools. This may be the reason why we take fire for granted. We are so infatuated by technology that when it comes to simple things like making a fire in a technology free environment, we can only speculate on how one can start a fire, especially in the wild.
