As I was looking at the home page I saw there was a contest happening for those wishing to share their know-how on the subject of simply staying warm. Looking through my library of knowledge for anything interesting, I remembered a little trick I used to use to start some of the best fires. These Fire Starters work so well I have been able to even light waterlogged pieces of wood, so BE CAREFUL.

Step 1: What You Need
-2 small paper cups NO PLASTIC, plastic is bad all around to burn, so no plastic coating on the cups, try to stay away from wax coating, you can use it if you really need to, but I advise against it
-A disposable Knife
-2 to 5 cotton rounds
-A fire starter
-Alcohol for those of you to lazy to wait an extra 5 seconds for the cup to catch on fire
Step 2: Step 1
*Note: while you can use up to five, it is not recommended because the jellied cotton rounds will, after a certain amount, become to dense and slow down the rate of their burning, and, sometimes even smother themselves.
Step 3: Step 2
Step 4: Step 4
Step 5: Lighting
(This picture was taken out in the open on a cold snowy day, no alcohol used. It burned for 20 minutes straight.)
