This is an amazing trick. These are items that we can all keep handy. Most of us have batteries, and gum can be picked up at any store. Not all gum comes wrapped in foil anymore, but Wrigley still uses it for some of their gums.  Just keep them in your glove compartment, purse, or backpack. They are small enough to not take up room or add too much weight. Simple survival help.

I wouldn’t use this as a replacement for matches. Let’s face it, the method does come with some side effects. Burning your fingers is probably going to happen. Not seriously, but enough to hurt.

All in all, this is a handy, crazy little trick that just may save your life. Something everyone can keep on hand and perform easily. Eveready takes on a whole new meaning!
