    Pinecones make great kindling for a fire.
    Vaseline on cotton ball kept in a 35mm film can. A few strands of soaked cotton act Like a candle.

    i bet that 35mm film one is not going to be useful anymore because hardly anyone uses film anymore

    i know you can eat the leaves on dandelions. they are supposed to be bitter but good for you. just don't eat the stalk or flower, if i remember right

    Use a whistle over hollering or whistling if lost. Uses less breath, energy and loss of fluids.
    An acorn cap can be used as a loud whistle.

    ohhhhh, like whistling a blade of grass. the way that page says to do it is exactly how we use grass to whistle. i geuss that is for people who cannot do the loud whistling with their fingers in their mouth, though?
