Re: $40 for a Case of Bottled Water? 'Preying' on Oklahoma T

(Shakes his head) Some folks just don't seem to look very far into the future when it comes to making decisions... Legislators can see: 1. The next election; and 2. How easily the public's emotions can be whipped up for political use. In this sense laws are well-written to serve their purpose: gett...

Re: $40 for a Case of Bottled Water? 'Preying' on Oklahoma T

Nearly every store I've been to (I live right by Moore, OK) that sells the stuff has had pallet-fulls of water, diapers, sanitation items, and other disaster related things at the front door ON SALE. Whoever had the bright idea to charge $40 for water is a freaking moron and deserves to go out of b...

If the price is constrained then there is no incentive for other players to transport water into the problem area.

Re: Liquid Light Revisited

I'm curious if anybody has any WT Kirkman #2 lanterns out there and what the weight of their globes are... are they 18.5 oz or 10 oz? My #2 Champion, ordered and shipped in April 2009, has a 15.1oz globe and is marked: W.T. KIRKMAN REG'D U.S. PAT. OFF. This globe feels distinctly overbuilt; I think...

Re: .22lr or .223 for non-PAW?

Shooting at people is not deterrence, it's either defense or attempted murder. If you need to shoot at someone, you don't need to be "keeping their heads down." Where does suppressive fire fit into this definition? I can say from experience that it was not barbed wire that was keeping my head down ...

For most practical, real world uses I'd say a KLR or DR. When I plunked down my $$$ it was for the DR650.

Re: Pickling Eggs: The definitive how to *Picture Intense*

Looks great! I'll try it out, but will leave them in the fridge per the official propanda. Risk of botulism is probably low in such an acidic solution but it can happen with unprocessed, unrefrigerated pickled eggs.

Re: Pressure Canning

I would suggest the canner and cooker are similar animals that differ in mass. The rub is that USDA/NCFP testing was done using the more massive canner which takes longer to heat up and cool down. These thermal cycles are part of the canning safety testing process. Using something with less thermal ...

as far as canning meats, how do you can raw meats without adding stuff to it? It's called "raw pack" and is pretty simple. In broad terms: cut up the meat and put it in the jar.
