Scouts send a message with a new merit badge.
There is (or was, don't know if it's still on other than in re-runs) a show on Food Network called "Chopped". The premise is that 4 chefs are given a basket of food and they have to prepare 1 of 3 meals using what's in the basket, along with a pantry of other fresh items.
There would be 3 rounds, appetizer, main dish & dessert.
Chopped - Survival will be similar but, sadly, there will be no $10,000 prize for...

Beginning to experience intermittent issues that could point to low(er) testosterone.
Generally feel unhealthy but not sure what to do about it. I eat...
Going Primal - My 90 Day Journey to Health
I'm thinking it may be. I saw elk and coyotes (at least three) on my property today. This poop was all over in a certain area. Gah. Luckily I went over there to fix the front door of the cabin, so at least that secures shut now.
This is the competition the "City Survivors" will be up against when they BUG OUT, eat or be eaten, other scavengers on another camera later.

The Deyo Food Storage Planner works in Excel (Although I recommend the free and open source LibreOffice for Win, Mac or Linux) and is a straightforward, easy-to-use spreadsheet. All you need to do is fill in the number of family members and how many weeks you want to store; the worksheet will calculate the quantities needed.
I received this from one of the guys on a gaming site. He is now a senior in a public high school but was home schooled from 1st thru 10th grade. I'm not disrespectful of home schooling. I just think the experience of these teens is interesting as well as their take on socialization and getting along with people who believe differently than you do.
Not sure you can see it in the...

Embarassing Discourse (that can be ignored) below
There's a link on SurvivalBlog to a great deal on a FoodSaver V2830 Vacuum Sealer Kit, so I thought to myself, "What a great deal for $60! I think I'll ask my wife...".
So I ask my wife, and she asks me: [insert sarcasm here] "What are you going to use it for?"
So I says to my wife, "Uhhh, vacuum sealing things like...

As per your request, the Department has composed a long report based on our analysis of the reports from HMS Warspite. Data was, of course, limited; neither Warspite’s crew nor the Russian refugees were trained observers, let alone alien research specialists....

Beyond Collapse - Surviving and Rebuilding Civilization from Scratch - T. Joseph Miller Jr.
For decades I have heard gun owners claim that the government would never be able to confiscate our firearms because the government would lose too many men. The implication being, of course, that gun owners would actively resist confiscation, even to the point of shooting back. But I believe this thinking is outdated and doesn’t align very well with reality. But before you tell me how big your honor guard in Hell will be when that day comes, let’s think about...
How Will They Confiscate Your Guns?

Martial Arts are kind of a curiosity of mine. And being a curiosity, I am naturally curious as to what everyone elses take on them are. Anybody have anything they want to share?
