How to make a light bulb from a pickle

If, for some reason, we end up in a Mad Max-like scenario where light bulbs are in such high demand that they become a new form of currency, take solace in the fact that you now know how to make one from a pickle, two nails and a cord from an old expired lamp, Macgyver.

Oh, and you probably shouldn't try this at home.

Update: Here's a video!

Hot diggity, did you do this? That's cool, but yeah the electrolytes and stuff in the pickle complete the electrical circuit, and it lights up I guess.

Anyway, visit me at my new advice column.
