Flick of the Bic sir.I would take the gift of fire above all the others on the list
 Quoting: moot

If you do not know how to make fire without a Bic lighter you will be dead in a post apocalyptic world.

So now is the time to start learning some stuff.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22300680


I'm really quite shocked that a lighter is top of the poll.

They won't get far without clean water.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3989578


But with fire one can distill water . . .

From your list, though, I want the Bic Lighter and a pack of cigarettes! If I have to do without other things, I want a smoke!

oh and for the record electrical tape is a better product than duct tape for most purposes.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22269280


Why???coffee4
 Quoting: George B


i use both for work electical tape has bindng/lashing properties you just cant get with duct tape.
also duct tape does not seem to last as long as good
electrical tape in a long term storage scenario

dont get me wrong duct tape is great but lets say you want to fix a water line with pressure on it you will never be able to wrap enough duct tape around it to stop the leak
but there is a very good chance you could with electrical
tape.

try this little experiment BUT DONT LEAVE IT ON YOUR FINGER TO LONG OR YOU WILL KILL YOUR FINGER FOR THE KDDIES AND IDIOTS HERE.

try wrapping duct tape then electrical tape around your finger (one at a time)you will get an idea for the greater bindng abilty od electrical tape.

just my 2cent and dont blame me if you leave it on so long your finger goes blue then drops off.

also there is many grades of electrical
piss poor
bloody good
and the HD shit NASA uses

aim for bloody good and above
