  • Didn't think it was worth making a new topic over so I'll just post this here. I applaud the new direction you guys are taking the site and I think you can hit a userbase and have a good, active community if you play your cards right. That said, I'l…
  • Thanks, right now there's actually not a glove I had in mind to use as the platform. I was thinking about just getting a pair of good insulating lineman's gloves and using whichever side I thought would seem neat. It's a fairly pointless endeavor bu…
  • Sure, there was tons of encouragement in this thread. Fuck that dude. Those who don't know who will inevitably pour into this thread now should review my first post in this thread. The guy talked about suicide quite a bit and often not on forums and…
  • Today I got the chance to load up on more inner poplar bark which is really handy for holding a coal and turning it into flame. I have a whole garbage bag of it now from bark that had simply fallen off of trees which I'll be using to continue practi…
  • Just saying what I know for what it's worth, to be perfectly honest I couldn't care less what you or anyone else in the thread believes. If DKR is really dead, you'll get what you want.
  • I'm assuming Modzilla = Moddy, but I haven't spoke with him on messenger and can't confirm. If so, it's not Dark Kaiser. He's been around longer than a lot of people in this thread off and on, was involved in the old night ops scene and (still?) urb…
  • ^^^ That is exactly why I dislike faggots. I realize that not all gay dudes are like that but enough are and they are annoyingly obnoxious about it. Back in '07 I was working in steel construction before the economy tanked and this dude started hitt…
  • I don't know the brands used, but I know some people have had success with frozen fruit juices that you're supposed to mix in a pitcher with water. It's possible. For what it's worth, you can also make a decent wine using seedless grapes from the pr…
  • How does that make you a pussy? You get one life. Do what you want with it. If that's not making you happy, quit. You don't have to necessarily love your job in life, but having one you don't mind going to every day and know you're surrounded by peo…
  • Tonight has turned into something of a "play with fire night" for me, I passed out early and woke up around midnight so I got bored and wandered outside with my kukri to make a fire for the hell of it. The ground was frosted over and all available w…
  • Work has started on a new guide, but progress will be somewhat slow. 2012 release planned. There's probably going to be some rehash because I'm not even going to look at WotS, it's outdated as fuck and I've learned a lot in the nearly 7 years that h…
  • Fair enough, man. Good luck in the great unknown, if there's even anything after we're dead. If by some chance there exists a level for life to continue in consciously, make an effort to haunt me or something haha. I default believe in death resulti…
  • I like a pretty wide range of metal, personally. Old and new. The only thing I don't like is when it starts crossing into emo crap or excessive screamo where you can literally flip through about 50 bands on YouTube and every single one sounds exactl…
  • Call me a nerd but Fallout 3 got me really interested in big band music. Since playing that I went out and explored a bunch of different artists from the WW2 era and found the general feel of the songs to be upbeat and good to listen to. I think the…

  • Of course not, China is good for business.
  • Oh no doubt, not on a self-hating anti-US agenda by any means, just find the Unit 731 thing to be particularly interesting.
  • On top of this, the victors of WW2 - especially the US - got plenty of payout from the war in the form of technology taken from Germany and Japan. An interesting point to touch upon as a prime example would be Japan's Unit 731 who committed rather g…
  • James, I'll be blunt. I know you've talked about doing this for years now, it comes up time and again. I've been around to hear you try anything to escape "the grind". Schemes that keep you employed without having to seek employment. Credit info, sc…
  • I'm trying to find a good time to go out and do the survival simulation, in the meantime I've been messing with my equipment. I found a discarded external frame recently that I ghetto'd onto an Austrian webbing rucksack. It actually worked out reall…
  • I'd like to in order to "give back" but my scanner is shit and I haven't come up with a good process to make the scans passable quality. I think it's really important, knowledge to me is worth more than gold. Truly. Digitizing rare books especially …
  • Sounds interesting. Most recent fragment I can remember from last night was getting shot at by someone but I was either lucid or otherwise knew I was dreaming* because I didn't make any attempt to evade the bullets. I knew they wouldn't hurt me. Slo…
  • For what it's worth, I have an ACU version of the last one you listed RemadE. It's just barely big enough to carry the essentials. In my first post of my survival thread in Green Outdoors, that's the pack I used. Depending on what you're capable of,…
  • It all depends on the tolerances of the door, door type, and what direction it swings. If the door swings into the building (away from you) it's often as simple as just jamming the card into the jamb where the bar slots into place and forcing it for…
  • I've got three fully equipped and ready to go haha. It's not so much that I think I need that many, I've just got tons and tons of survival and camping shit laying around so it keeps it organized but useful. There's enough for a fourth pack as well,…
  • With the absurdly huge amount of lists out there, I won't bother trying to go too in depth but I do want to focus on the food and water part a little bit because time and again I see people who sort of miss the point of the bag. Basically, you ne…
  • The past week has been fairly uneventful as most of my free time went into knife making and personal studies. However, I did make a massive improvement on my primitive fire making skills with the bow drill. I learned the Egyptian bow drill method an…
  • I haven't, that's actually pretty clever. There is an open disc grinder I own that I could probably attach conventional sandpaper discs to. Eventually I'll figure something out.
  • I think it's just a matter of battery capacity at this point, really. When the day comes that a battery can withstand years of charging and each charge will get you quite far, it's going to be a good day. There's also the matter of cold weather perf…
  • Ok, time for a belt sander. I'm not going to get a knife looking any better than this without one unless I spend tons of time sanding by hand. It's sort of the steel's fault, as it was exposed to the elements so it's rusty with some shallow pits her…
  • I wouldn't say any of this is good enough to sell just yet, but I'm improving fast, I think. These shorter days are killing me. I started work on a bolo bowie... thing... and ran out of daylight before I could get it past the grinding stage compl…

  • I'm an ectomorph myself and I used to think it was a curse because I was skinny all through high school and looked somewhat frail even though I did tons of manual labor outside of school and was one of the stronger guys (not THE strongest though). A…
  • Wish I could help, I've learned quite a bit about fitness but it's more oriented towards bulking up with functional muscle and maintaining speed, agility, cardio, etc. I'll try to weigh in with what I think could apply. If you're working out - RE…
  • Haha, oh man, I nearly choked on my coffee at that. I think that's actually a comb with a small blade function on it.
  • Yeah I guess that did come across as a little hostile, that wasn't really the intention and I apologize, it's good that someone is trying to balance out the mythical AK-47 that can shoot even after having cemented poured into the barrel and receiver…
  • Another day, another knife. After getting back home a bit early today I quickly started work on a Finnish lapinleuku aka Sami knife. Example shown here: Here are pictures of the work in progress: http://i.imgur.com/SLbGl.jpg http://i.imgur.…
  • I need to find myself a new handset for a beigebox, I had a cheap one kicking around for the longest time I'd use but it's starting to take a major shit on me. Although I do like it, maybe I can try to repair it. It's small and has a silent clicking…
  • I know how this must have felt. I'm really caffeine sensitive, if I drink even a small bottle of Coke late at night I won't be able to fall asleep until a few hours later. One time I made the mistake of drinking a bottle of Redline from GNC - the…
  • That black one is absolutely nothing like mine. There is far more usable edge on it. Edit - To be less contrite here, the one I posted has a saw back, small serrations, nonsense curves, and seems to be clearly intended as some kind of "XTREME!" s…

  • Since the pics from another thread are outdated: These are over a year old but the appearance hasn't changed other than wider tires in the front. Most of the changes since then have been drive train and suspension. I got the car down to 3…

  • Oh wow, fail, I'll just delete that to spare myself some embarrassment. I thought Holden was the Aussie Ford brand name with it's own unique options for some reason. Yes, you're right it's a Falcon XB coupe, heavily modified. I just looked up Hol…
  • Right on, man. Happy brewing. I've put honest thought into raising a beehive just mead honey, but I'm juggling way too much crap already. I've heard that raw honey tastes way better. There are also some interesting recipes out there for burnt honey …

  • Personally, I really don't give a fuck. They're both great weapons with their own good qualities. I personally feel the same about the big .45ACP vs. 9mm argument. If I got to have one for free out of the two, I'd probably go with the M16 despite be…
