Man may not have created fire, but in times even before antiquity, humans mastered the art of fire starting. Fast-forward to the fast-paced hustle and bustle of modernity. Somehow, our highly efficient and evolved brains lost that that ability. Not everybody can start a fire in a timely fashion. A world filled with complicated child-proof lighters, flammable chemicals and quick-start briquettes have neutered our nature-sense. A simple backyard barbecue can be an exercise in tedium resulting in cold coals and hungry bellies.
