Yeah, I read that yesterday and thought it was an Onion-type article, but apparently these nutcases take it seriously.

The world has cracked in half.  :o ::)

You make several good points, Petrus; The hardcore politically correct left in this country has become the root cause of all the chaos and discord

They just expect everything done for them.  They expect the ability to live in a completely custom reality; and my main focus over the last two years has been learning, even if only incrementally, that not only is that not possible, but I shouldn't want it even if it was.

Quote
unfortunately, the snowflakes, millenials, and the majority of the Gen X'ers have been pre-programmed since pre-k with demonic socialist principles,politically correct garbage, slammed headlong with electro-technical mind garbage, and not taught how to live life

With 3-5 large pieces of wood, and minimal kindling, I can reliably make fire now.  I normally rely on a miniature blow torch, but I know how to use a ferro rod.  I don't know much about farming, but give me clay, sufficient wheat berries, a mortar and pestle, enough wood, and a water source, and I can make basic bread.  I won't necessarily enjoy doing so very much, of course, but I could.  I've been learning recently on YouTube how to make yeast starter, as well; basically you just have to expose a sufficient amount of flour and water to the air for 24 hours, and then nurse it once a day for around the next two weeks with additional flour and water.

We have kangaroos around here, sometimes in quite large numbers, apparently.  I am not an archer, but I probably know close to enough now to make a spear in a pinch; the tricky part would be attaching the blade to the shaft.  Fighting a roo isn't something I'd be enthusiastic about either; they are literally shaped like a Tyrannosaurus Rex, believe it or not.





I'm six foot three, but a big adult red is about the same height, with clawed legs that are a foot long and exactly level with my intestines.  If they stand on their tail temporarily, they can disembowel you with one swipe.  It would be better to try and trap it; maybe with snares or something.  I am guessing, but I doubt you can bait them, because they only eat grass.

Making a spear would also be a surprisingly large project, mainly because I would need charcoal in order to get temperature for my initial metal bloom, and then enough to smelt it multiple times, to get out enough sulfur and silica to make it good quality.  If you don't get enough sulfur out of iron, it will be brittle and break too easily.  Getting iron bearing dirt or sand around here wouldn't be too difficult, but purifying it to any great extent would be tricky, unless I knew how to make a crucible and mixed either manganese or vanadium with it, I think it is.  I still don't really understand how people extract slag when crucible smelting; they don't do it with their hands, that's for sure.  8)

I don't post the above to brag, as much as to demonstrate that I might be Gen X, but I am slowly recovering my humanity.

That is rather interesting Petrus... A Kangaroo really does look like T-Rex  :)

Edit to add that I'm quite perplexed by that.  Good find  :D

It also looks like a jerboa, but that's not as impressive.  :P

At least it's from the same class as kangaroos, unlike the T. Rex. There are more mammals with that basic, made for hopping, shape, like the springhares.

I think the kangaroo has one of the greatest anatomical shapes that I know of, Armap.  When I played *Spore,* a game where you can design your own species, my species were sentient kangaroos, more or less.

Petrus, there are basic, tedious steps you can take to smelt iron ore with stone age tools; you can make a crucible out of different types of clay, baked several times in a fire

you char wood to make charcoal, and construct a bellows; the charcoal burns hotter and longer than wood, and you use the bellows to force oxygen into the coals, generating hotter temperatures

to remove the clinker or slag from the top of the crucible, you can either tip the pot and let it flow off, or use a rake made from fire hardened wood to pull it off
you would have to smelt it several times to approach the grade of purity you would need to make blades, and then, after shaping your blade or spearpoint, you must temper the metal to make it strong

learn from the abos before doing battle with a 'roo, they have a lot of experience  8)
I would use a sling or slingshot before I would a spear; a rock to the head will knock it's brains out from a distance and greatly lessen the chances of bodily harm to you

Or you can use a rock, it's easier and, for most uses, good enough. :)

A religious principle I was once taught said that sometimes a miracle is a miracle because of when it happens.

https://sputniknews.com/military/201708221056664553-pause-navy-accident-missile-defense/

So, the US and SK are within a hair's breadth of war with NK - besides , you know, China, Russia, Venezuela, etc.  The usual war games in Korea that inflame NK are starting.  But then something utterly off the graph stupid happens to stop Any Crazed Neo Con Attempt At WW3 - because yet another US highly advanced vessel smashed into a cargo vessel.   What? Nobody on deck with binoculars?  Or just good eyesight who can yell?  And this happens again within 3 months?

The above is yet another example that something very weird and insane is happening to the US.

Yes the insanity is obvious  The CAUSE is not...

Running out of drones because of crashes.  And then we have all those F-18 crashes recently.  And the continuing mystery of why US fighter pilots can't get enough oxygen, going on for years.
