@Stephen - I completely agree with how the process works, but you didn't say anything that was not demonstrated in the video. Why Crisco? Because I have seen demonstrations of paraffin, beeswax, Vaseline, and many other fuels used as fire starters, but I have never seen shortening used. So, I shared it with those who might find it interesting.
Now this usage was definitely known by some, probably known by many, possibly known by most, but most definitely not known by all. It is for the people who don't know the information that I try to demonstrate and inform. I try to do it in a way that avoids sounding pompous and as a know-it-all and hopefully in a manner that is interesting.
So, here is what I find silly: for someone who believes they know everything about the subject to waste their time watching a video; for that person to compound their wasted time by posting negative comments about it; to recount the basic principles demonstrated (as far as I know learned from the video) as universally known truths, but then blast the video for showing them.
Again, quit eating the cottonball firestarters and the shortening absolutely positively will not clog your arteries (by the way, your obsession on this topic is a bit bizarre).
If the information in my videos is of no interest to you, rest assured it wasn't meant for you. If you think the information is presented poorly and you can do better, please do so. I may or may not watch it. I may or may not find it useful. However, what I absolutely will not do is attack you for sharing information with others. The point of an online community is to share information and stimulate conversation. Ridiculing those that share ideas doesn't help anyone.
