    That’ll teach him to try to trick them. I see he has his clothes back.

    Well, they’re not idiots.

    That’s how they do it in the Boy Scouts.

    (You didn’t really think you could start a fire with two sticks, did you???)

    Actually, you can, if you know what you’re doing (and have incredible palm calluses). Better to use a bow drill, though.

    There was a scene like this in last night’s “Arrow”, except the guy with the lighter let the guy with the stick go on for two hours for the entertainment value.

    You know what works really well? A 9volt battery and steel wool. Just touch the prongs to the steel wool and viola! Flame on! Try it it’s pretty cool……Steel wool also works for flint and steel as well as the stick method…

    there is evidence that ancient humans used fire but didn’t know how to create it, they would find a wild fire, take it back home, and then never let it go out. There are cases where cavemen relied on a single fire for centuries, until they got displaced by their own ash pile.

    In Eastern Canada a mall had a contest to see if anyone could start a fire by rubbing two sticks together. It was an annual event and eventually a Scouter managed to. He’d entered many years in a row trying and finally succeeded.

    Oh, no! I fear that Monty has altered the timeline for us all! And why was he carrying a lighter in the first place, since we have not seen him as a smoker?

    So that when they return to the present, Pee Wee Herman will just have been elected President.

    You can use two sticks to start a fire. Just make sure one’s a match.

    That was the premise of the 1981 movie “Quest for Fire”.
    <>
    {Spoiler Alert!} Humans eventually learned how to create fire. (Perhaps you already guessed that — in which case it wasn’t really a “spoiler”, was it?)
