Lighting a Match With a Rubber Band Is a Handy Trick

If your five o’clock shadow isn’t rugged enough to light a match with, and there’s no where else to strike one, a rubber band and a second match are all you need to get a fire started. This one’s going to require some practice to master, and some amateur sniper skills, but MacGyver would be proud.

how is this HANDY exactly? In what world do you live where you have two matches and a rubber band and nothing else to strike match against?

I have seen people light matches against clothes... glass.. striker side of match box etc... this is hardly a trick.. never mind a handy one
