A few days ago Russ Roca mentioned in an online forum that he'd really grown fond of Fritos. In response, someone commented that they are not only tasty, they make great emergency kindling. This in turn prompted me to draft my son Eric into shooting this video of me verifying that Fritos are, in fact, rather flammable. The easy way would be to just use some matches, but that's not how I roll. So here in all it's unedited glory is me starting a fire with my Swiss Army Knife, some Fritos, a scrap of paper and a Magnesium Fire Starter. The witty banter reveals the great respect my son has for my efforts.
