Fire and water: mortal enemies? Not so fast! Here are 5 ways to start a fire, using water.

I figured out how to make fire and water work together. My friends at Volkswagen, who made this video possible, figured out a way to make a German-engineered car, that's a blast to drive, also a smart choice.
Every new Volkswagen comes with no-charge scheduled maintenance for the first two years or 24,000 miles. #NowYouKnow

In this video you'll see how to;
- Start a fire using an old light bulb and water
- Get tinder smoldering using plastic wrap and water
- Make a hands free liquid lens with a picture frame and plastic wrap
- Ignite tinder using a water bottle
- Start a blazing fire by reacting water and sodium
WARNING: Under certain conditions, an open flame can grow to an uncontrollable, blazing fire. This may result in serious injury, burns, property damage, forrest fires, grass fires, and even death. Use of video content is at own risk.
WHO READS THE VIDEO DESCRIPTION?? Let's find out? If you're reading this, let me know by posting a comment about the video involving the word "elephant", and let's see who we can confuse! :) On October 3rd, 2013, I'll randomly pick one comment as the winner of a pair of "Rattle snake eggs" Buzz magnets. For an example of what they are, check out: http://youtu.be/m2Wc32y-gKU. (This is not a sponsored giveaway. It's just for fun)
UPDATE: Congratulations to jeffhrose who was randomly chosen as the winner of the buzz magnets! (Chosen randomly on October 3rd, 2013) Thanks to everyone else who participated in the "elephant" challenge!

Project inspired by: My own creative adaptations to previous projects, and the picture frame lens was inspired by www.greenpowerscience.com with their Aqua lens video: http://youtu.be/f_zKk03CJKU
Projects & pictures that inspired this video:
#1: Original idea adaptation after experimenting with water bottles
#2: Original idea adaptation after experimenting with water bottles (I also demonstrated this method with urine in another video: http://youtu.be/0YAu2Dsh_Zc
#3: GreenPowerScience http://youtu.be/f_zKk03CJKU
#4: Original idea adaptation from experimenting with water bottles, and looking for a bottle shaped like a sphere. The POM bottles are perfect!
#5: Original idea after experimenting with the reactions between water and sodium metal in a previous video: http://youtu.be/kssQlomJB58
I love the idea that simple resources can be utilized to help meet our basic survival needs. Water is about as basic and abundant as it gets. To use it as a liquid lens you just need to find a way to make it round, clear, and hope for a sunny day! Then, your imagination is the only limitation. :)
