Re: What Would Happen If Humans Suddenly Disappeared?

I have a DVD box set of the History Channel's series 'Life After People'. Its an interesting show and sounds similar to this one. It's not survival, its what happens to everything on earth when there's no more people to interfere with or maintain it. Watch here https://www.history.com/shows/life-af...

I would say we should plan a meet, but there's a good chance I'm like 8 hours from CG.
If you're Aggie-land-ish, only 5 or 6!
Practically next door! I figured you were out in the BFE.

This tsunami was apparently caused by an underwater landslide, rather than an earthquake. Although I doubt that distinction matters much to the many, many victims.
It might make a difference in the ability to warn people...if they've got any warning systems in place.

Well Lil says keep the dog, I keep the dog. Dog (whom I am growing very fond of by the way) does not like my Father, Mother or Lil's Mom and will not let them in my work shop/shed/garage.
Depending on the people...that could be a very good thing!

I'm pretty certain that the point of YOLO is not to make the only once as short as possible.

Re: Buying Brand New Truck?

Hubby ends up driving on lots of sand (delivering to sand plants). He has a 4x4 dually and said it works fabulously on the sand, but he's also generally got a pretty good amount of weight in the back because he's hauling tools and a compressor.

Re: Freezing Water supply?

We use plastic Topo Chico bottles. The bigger ones are about 1.5L. Hubby takes 2 of them in his ice chest every day, and they're normally still pretty frozen when he comes home, even after longer days in 110F. He comes home and switches them out. I take a smaller one in my little lunch bag with all ...

I carry an OTF knife at work, and I have gotten some odd looks from people around here, but since I have a good excuse, I just ignore it. IF HR ever asks, yes it is legal here, and it is the only knife that I can open and close one handed for when my other hand is occupied holding on to a ladder, o...

Re: The Day of EDC Victory

I helped with the delivery of cups at the theater. Pallets, completely plastic-wrapped, higher than my head. "Anybody got a knife?" Uh, yeah. So I pop out my knife with a 3-4" spring blade (it is now legal in Texas), to which one of the guys goes, "I'm kind of embarrassed to take out my knife now," ...

Re: Heat, and How to Survive It

It's not as hot where I live as you, but I struggle badly in summer regardless. What helps me is basically cutting out hot food. Hot drinks too, but I don't really go in for those anyway. I also try to find ways to eat/drink cold things (cold as I can manage anyway, I have sensitive teeth :P). I im...

Re: Anyone have experience with green goo?

Calendula, plantain, comfrey, yarrow, and myrrh are often used in herbal recipes for salves. I have calendula-infused oil in the fridge for when I make my next batch.

I'd definitely be interested in a product like this if I ran across it in a store and could buy a single travel size one.
