This is how you start a blazing fire using only a lemon

Despite its long outdoorsy heritage, childhood Scouts meetings were mainly excuses to play football and trade Pokemon cards outside the jurisdiction of watchful teachers.

A few rope knots here, a few camping trips there (but not too far over there - well within driving distance of paranoid parents), but no real wilderness experience or know-how.

Which is a damn shame, because not only are survival skills badass, but they can ultimately prove life-saving.

For example: what would you do if you were stranded in sub-zero terrain with just a lemon and a bunch of copper for company? You don't know, do you? You pansy.

But this man knows, and he's willing to show you. Check out the video above, if you want to live.
