Camping is a one-of-a-kind experience that can teach us to be life-smart and resourceful at the same time. While we may spend days thinking what to pack, it is inevitable to forget essential things like a lighter or matchsticks. In these cases, we are forced to use our critical thinking to turn whatever is available into something useful.
If ever you find yourself stuck in the cold wild and forgot to bring your lighter, you can try this simple trick to start a fire and get all warmed up. With just a chocolate bar, a soda can and some naturally-occurring materials in the forest, you can make it happen. Do this to survive or simply impress your friends with this life hack!

Legally Blind Artist Creates Cracked Log Lamps Bursting with Light
Can you believe that a blind artist created these beautiful art pieces?
At the age of 18, Duncan Meerding began losing his sight. In 2005, he was diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition that left him legally blind within 12 months. Now, he retains 5% of his vision in his peripheries.
Despite this ordeal, this didn’t stop him from appreciating the beauty of wilderness in Tasmania. In fact, he graduated from the University of Tasmania with a degree in furniture design.
Inspired by outback wilderness, the furniture designer uses light in his creations to help him convey how he sees the world. Meerding’s most popular creation, the cracked log lamp, emits soft warm light from its cracks.
"My furniture is obviously influenced by my vision impairment but I want it to be nice to look at, nice to touch. I don't want it to be bought out of sympathy but because it is good."...
He Couldn’t Afford an Air Conditioner, So He Made This $8 Cooler Instead. Brilliant!
Now don’t you think that’s a really cool invention?
As much as I look forward to summer season, the idea of enduring the unbeatable heat really upsets me. Surviving extremely hot days means turning on the air conditioner 24/7 which leads to higher electricity bill by the end of the month. Just the idea of it is making me sweat like a pig right now.
This is why Household Hacker came up with a good alternative for expensive brand new air conditioners. For only $8, they were able to create a make-shift air conditioner using a $4- styrofoam cooler, dryer vents which cost $2, an old but functioning electric fan, and frozen bottles of water.
According to the video tutorial, the temperature of the house dropped from 78 degrees to 60 degrees after running the make-shift conditioner for a couple of hours. Now don’t you think that’s a really cool invention?...
