Emergency Tuna Can Oil Lamp
About The Video

Using a can of tuna in oil (the cheaper the better - as there's less fish and more oil that way), you can make an emergency lamp that will burn for several hours.

If care and hygiene is observed while making it, there's no reason why the tuna can't be eaten afterwards too!

That's right - If you use tuna packed in water, instead of an Emergency Light, you'll make an Emergency Dark.

I'm guessing this works better with tuna packed in oil rather than tuna that is packed in water ... but that's just a guess! :)

This really a great survivalist hack, not to mention when there is a power outage
