Simple pyromaniac fire starter.

A plastic soap box or other similiar airtight container,a baby food jar is good too if you have space.

A handfull of cotton balls.

Pack your container with the cotton balls and pour in some used motor oil,let it soak in and add some more.

Now you have some hot burning tinder to use in those less than ideal conditions!

I'm bad to use what I have plenty of.

Another great fire starter is those cheap birthday candles,I've seen them recently for a quarter a box!get the wick wet?break off some!
Great concept!
one addition I would make is sloshing a little liquid parrafin into the can and forget the candle. :)
