Re: Robot Uprising - Or, what to do when AI Does All The Job

Just because science is able to create these horrible things, does not mean they should be built. History is rife with TPTB having control of the masses; with all this crap it's just going to get easier, and so many people seem to just hand their control over. I don't understand it. All those sci-fi...

Re: Alternatives to Chapstick?

I like SunSmacker, one of the LipSmacker line.
Lasts me a long time, not waxy, and has an SPF of 24.

Yes, if you're in a knife fight you can pretty much guarantee you'll get a few cuts.
I'm not sure I've ever come through one completely unscathed.

Re: Anyone interested in a Boring Flamethrower

Re: Long Term Storage Spices

CG to stay bushy, basil must be plucked and have enough light.
Try plucking the top two leaves. It should sprout two branches there.
If it does, you know it can get healthy.
Then try plucking another spot down farther to see if it branches out there as well.

Make sure you give it a little food too.

Re: Reusing salt

I believe the smokehouses would have a saltbox to keep the salt dry, but also to keep it handy for curing. I did a search for your answer; and really there isn't any agreement among meat smokers. I know the USDA doesn't allow it, as it hasn't been proven to be safe. Personally, I would discard the f...

Frankly, for me, it's the people behind them.
For too many people it's "me, me, me and the hell with anyone/everyone else".

Oh, I just realized your #4 - If you order from them, keep in mind the boxes are very, VERY well marked. Like 'you can read them from a block away', basically. Well packed, good prices, and good quality, but no OPSEC. https://providentliving.lds.org/bc/providentliving/content/welfare-operations/grai...

Depending on your relationship with the neighbor, can you go over and offer to take the dead wood down?
Often people want things like that gone, but there's always a long list of stuff waiting for the money with others taking priority.

Re: Top 20 preparedness items for bugging in?

If you find the canned meat fatty, slice it thin and fry in a dry skillet.
That will help render the fat out.
Canned mackerel can be very stinky. Better check a can before you stock up, to see if you can live with the smell.

Re: Challenges to raising self-sufficient kids

Before tablets and phones, part of the problem around here was they took away recess and added PE instead.
During PE the uncoordinated kids just sat there while the talented ones did their 'sports stuff'.

Re: Challenges to raising self-sufficient kids

Climbing trees. When I was a kid, a dad or older kid would climb the trees trying to break any weak branches. Then we were allowed to climb as we wanted. If we fell out of a 45 feet tall tree (and I have) we were more careful next time. Now? OMG, IT'S 7 FEET HIGH! THEY COULD FALL AND KILL THEMSELVES...
