Yes, but that doesn't describe why wet ground impedes fires.

Actually he makes a good point. You can boil water in a paper cup held over a bunsen burner, without the paper cup bursting into flame...
You can actually boil an egg in a paper bag over an open fire. It's an old Boy Scout trick, requiring much finesse and fire skills, yet can be done. The trick is having the right amount of water, in a well made paper bag, that will hold up from hanging with a stick through it's top. Then, it's just a matter of applying the right amount of heat, for the right amount of time and presto, a boiled egg... or may be 5 minute egg, or maybe a mess. At any rate, it takes some practice.

I'm sorry, I'm a bit new, why would I want to hardboil an egg in a paper bag?

"No no honey, turn off that stupid stove and put down that pot: I have a paper bag and boy scout training."

It's a Boy Scout thing. I mean when I was in it we wore knee-highs and garters. There's lots of strange traditions there.

I think I probably get where you were coming from. Something about how difficult it was to do this apparently pointless extension of the original use, boiling water in emergency situations, was hilarious to me. I pictured this 12 year old working day and night to be the best paper bag egg boiler in the camp and trying to justify it in his later life.

Any kid that can hard boil an egg in a paper bag over the campfire should get the keys to the bus.

Gun Powder? LOL, whatever the case may be I look forward to it. Don't hurt yourself AT!


You know I look back at the many fun and funny times in the bush camping out, and almost always we'd get in arguements while starting the fire. Eventually it ends up "I'll get the fire going, you go get branches."
