fire

This weekend we tried to start a fire without artificial means.  Just to see if we could.  These were our materials:


We made friction until our arms ached and our fingers tingled.

You've got to give it up for our peeps in the stone age.  Yikes.  The idea that you could actually create fire seems really, utterly ambitious.  And ridiculous.  Why would they ever think that was within their power?  Friction into fire.  Huh.  

In the end, we went for a walk and spotted this blaze in the yard:



And then we rested.  Non-friction.
