This is the nature of war. By protecting others, you save yourself. If you only think of yourself, you'll only destroy yourself.

I have worn a steel flat trying to start a fire. Finally got it going with frayed sisal as tinder.

One of the American preppers who posts on Youtube always advocates have a small piece of bicycle inner tube, because it will always light, regardless.

I noticed this when watching videos about fixing cars.
Youtube: Remove old part just like that with your fingers and attach a new one from the box
Real life: Find out your car has a slightly different version of that part, soak in WD40 for a few hours, eventually remove the old one with the help of an angle grinder and oxy acetylene torch, realise yer man at the shop gave you the wrong replacement, spend hours online trying to find the exact version you need and wait weeks for it to arrive while you have an unusable car sitting in the shed

OK, this might be an obvious one, well actually it most definately is obvious! Watching vids does not equal skills.
Case in point, feathersticking for firestarting with a firesteel. I got together a considerable pile of feathersticks yesterday and couldn't get them to light with just the firesteel.
