Video: Neil Strauss makes a knife from a cigarette

Neil Strauss has a new book, "Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life", which reveals the secrets of people who in a hypothetical apocalypse will be roasting your femur over oil barrels. He made this video showing how to make a knife from a cigarette for Danger Room. Too bad my cigarettes use cotton filters.

    This is much better with the goat disturbing things.

    Eh, how did that cut the paper? perpendicular to the direction he stroked you say? Now that’s a knife!

    Kudos to the goat on the catch…

    Ooo, are we stuck in italics today!

    This video makes me want to get a goat. When the hypothetical apocalypse comes, I’m going to need something to entertain me. I think goat will work perfectly.

    Thanks,

    In one video post, you’ve convinced me not to waste money buying his book.

    Congrats.

    I’ll take a cotton filter over a plastic and fiberglass one any day.

    #3: I had a pet goat and believe me, they’re more trouble than they’re worth. The novelty of having a goat perched on top of the roof of my car during a blinding snowstorm was far outweighed by the annoyance of having hoof prints chipped out of the paint.

    And don’t get me wrong, I will try and make a knife out of cigarette filter because of this video, snarky internet comments aside.

    Today’s take-home messages:

    1. Plastic can be melted and formed into any shape you please.

    2. Goats don’t eat cigarette lighters, although they eat just about everything else.

    I think South x Southwest is bad for BoingBoing gadgets…

    As someone who contributes absolutely nothing to this blog but takes takes takes multiple times per day, I DEMAND MORE POSTS!

    Sorry about that, couldn’t resist.

    That goat is more interesting that Neil Strauss.

    Also:

    I had a pet goat and believe me, they’re more trouble than they’re worth.

    Amen to that brother!

    people who carry cigarettes clearly aren’t too concerned with surviving.

  13. Coho says:

    Or you could just break the glass and use that. The goat gets the idea.

  14. fataltourist says:

    I’m assuming the goat ate the knife before they could get a close up shot.

  15. thechicgeek says:

    Maybe if I had a goat, I could have it trim my lawn. Also, I’d get goat cheese. Delicious goat cheese.

    Shiv’s are cool too, but not as cool as goats.

    …Well, if you can do that with a hard filter cigarette, then it finally answers the question of whether it’s a wise thing to give a Tiparillo to a lady.

    That’s not a knife, now this is a knife!

    That’s not a knife, that’s a spoon.

    “people who carry cigarettes clearly aren’t too concerned with surviving.”

    because smokers are all just trying to commit suicide but are too stupid to come up with a more efficient method…. riiiiight.
