I enjoyed the discussion.


Actually it can, and is more useful then paper as you can make a compass, and other things...

That is of course if you are willing to sacrifice it...

My device is old enough, it does sometimes spark. Now and again, I can even start a fire without trying...

I never really thought of that as a feature before.

I think that would be cheating.. A real Gentlemen doesn't need anybody to tell him which cards to put down next. Even in the woods.. That's why this games are called solitaire (at least in America, it's games of patience in Britain).

In solitaire, ideas come right out of your hands.

So it's a good example I think. Thanks a lot.

I can do one better than that. If you have a watch with an analog dial you've got a ready made compass right to hand. 12 = north, 3 = east, 6= south and 9= west. If it's before noon just keep the sun lined up with the 3 and if it's afternoon line it up with the 9 and you know your cardinal points. It's an old Boy Scout trick.

ERrr... if you can see the sun, you do not need the watch to know your cardinal directions. I guess that is an OLDER boyscout trick though

If you have a Kindle Paperwhite, you can focus the light from its screen on dry wood to start a fire .
