When I'm not programming, I like to work in my garden growing vegetables. (If my site loads slowly, its because my hosting sucks. I'm working on fixing that soon.)

comment Primitive fire starting in northeastern Brazil
Sure. A lighter, match or magnifying glass is easy, but I have no idea where I can find flint in Brazil. But that's not the point. Survival situations are often those where you are completely unprepared. You have no resources. Learning about survival is about learning to make do with whatever you have around you, and in many circumstances, you might not have a lighter or flint or whatever makes fire starting easy for you.
