Bow ties have been around for at least two centuries and have recently become fashionable once more. Unfortunately, unless they were quite the nerd in high school most people in today's society do not know how to tie one. This is unfortunate because not only will they miss out on the opportunity to use this accessory in conjunction with their wardrobe, it is likely that they will eventually be required to wear one to a formal "black-tie" affair such as a wedding, funeral, or business meeting. Fortunately, tying a bow tie is as simple as tying your shoe. It will take a bit of practice before you can get it just right; however it is like riding a bicycle: Once you learn how, you'll never forget.

If you have the knowledge of how to build a fire using only what you can find in the outdoors, you'll never have to spend a night without a source of light and comforting warmth.
