Here you go, Joe.  No matches?  No lighter?  No fire starting magnesium sparker?  This trick actually works like a charm.  I've done it personally many times.  This little wizardry can save your bacon in a backpacking emergency.  If you have toothpaste or even some chocolate and can find an aluminum drink can with a concave bottom, you're good to go within minutes.  Simply polish the bottom shiny with the paste or chocolate.  It becomes a small parabolic mirror.  With a tiny bit of sunlight it can ignite dry tender in seconds when focused on your target.  Pwooof!  Let there be fire!  Why didn't cave men think of this?
