Sandwich Bag Fire Starter

Grant Thompson - the King of Random - teaches me how to start a fire with a Sandwich bag. And we tried to melt glass in my backyard:
Check out his channel:
The intensity of sunlight on Earth is about 1300 Watts per square meter. When you focus the sun's rays using a magnifying glass (or in this case sphere of water) you can increase the intensity roughly ten thousand fold. This increases the temperature of wood to its autoignition point starting the reaction with oxygen in the atmosphere. By protecting the hot embers and adding more energy and fuel, you can get these hot coals to start a roaring fire.

Cool.. But, I'd rather do what John Plant does in Primitive Technology.. Because I would want the plastic bag to carry edibles or water or things that I don't want to be dirtied.

Stick a cylinder on top of the fire eg a can opened from both sides and avoid all the spinning. You gotta know all your thermodynamics. {conduction, convection, radiation} :) I think though that it is more likely to have about you a lighter and a penknife rather than a zip-bag! Though careful at airports: they tend to be confiscated. :( Sorry to learn about Grant like this. RIP
