This redneck life hack will change the way you look at a can of tuna.

When packing an emergency kit, most people throw in things like flashlights or matches in case a source of light is needed. But what about a can of tuna? Surprisingly, in just a few seconds you can turn a small container of fish into a lifesaving lamp. If you are without light in an emergency, here's a cheap and easy way to create a makeshift oil lamp.

The process is simple. Cut a hole in the center of the tuna can and stick a piece of rolled up paper towel or piece thread you might have on hand inside the hole. Next, simply light the end of the thread and enjoy your makeshift lamp.
