Default Handy little fire starter.

Was at the barber and saw a neat idea in a magazine.
some (or all) of you may have this alreay but I thought I'd pass it on anyway.
simply take a refill for a striker(used for lighting propane and other torches),drill a small hole in the metal threaded part and hang it on your keychain,nail clippers,pocket knife or whatever you carry all the time.
Handy little emergency fire starter.

You have to remember that a great portion of the masses wouldn't have a clue of what to do with an O/A rig....

Sphincter says what?

(Sorry -- feeling a little tango'ish today.)
