Yep! I sent that out to folks!

The one I dug?

Make emergency light sources out of an Altoids tin, cardboard, and wax.

That's genius, and less expensive than the "emergency candles, PLUS? If the wax MELTS? It doesn't leak so much as is absorbed by the cardboard.

Some are cool like the tea tree oil and water as a tick deterent... But I prefer DEET! I know it's bad for you, but danged works like a CHAMP!

The Mountain Dew lantern appears to be a hoax.
