Give me fire

Can you  make fire from scratch with no matches?   Some local boy scouts were showing off at a local mall, trying to pass the summer boredom away.  They demonstrated fire making techniques.  Then they let people try. Damn.  I couldn't do it, not even with a flint striker.  I gave up.  I tried today to use my glasses to get it going. Couldn't do it. I guess I'll pass on trying out for these survivor shows.

Back when I was in scouting our method of fire making was to wait until the scoutmaster wasn't around and use matches. Worked great.  We always had the best fires.  Now I sort of wish we'd actually learned how to make a fire.
