Re: The Ongoing Man Made Opiod Catastrophe

It is an inherently complex problem to solve, as each individual in the equation brings their own set of variables to the table. By individual, there are varying levels of pain perception (for the same condition), varying efficacy and suitability of drugs, varying availability and efficacy of non-dr...

Re: The study on collapse they thought you should not read – yet

I think that there are at least a couple of things that we are fighting against, and which I don't see changing anytime soon. There could be more groupings as well, depending on how you want to break them down or add others, but two that come to mind: 1. Growth: Defined as economic, lifestyle, and p...

Re: Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink

I'm a daily coffee drinker, but I have a good stock of tea at home, and I take tea with me on camping trips because it packs easier than coffee and associated paraphernalia. Both are relatively inexpensive ways to get your daily dose of caffeine, and also to just provide a nice warm drink, which occ...

Re: Heat inside a vehicle

Thanks, NT2C! Since burning anything in an enclosed space presents ventilation problems, and ensuring adequate ventilation will often result in significant heat loss as well, I am wondering if we could explore non-burning or alternative heating options.

Excellent report on what was certainly a harrowing time for you all.

This may be ridiculous, but can you roll your own chips? I admit it would require more knowledge than I currently have, but I bet someone could make a plan and post it.

I'm sure any industrially-accepted (NIOSH et al.) respirator will do you just fine, but for my $0.02: 3M is my usual go-to standard brand to compare against (safety glasses, adhesives, medical supplies, abrasives, etc.), and I oftentimes end up going with their products anyways.

So your plan is to use an unlicensed nuclear reactor to meet your energy needs? Does not seem solid to me. If the guy's designs get licenced and are as efficient and effective as advertised, that could produce a lot of clean energy and solve a lot of carbon issues. That would be pretty cool. While ...
