Today, 95 year ago, they left for the summit one last time before the clouds enveloped them forever. Let us, amidst the money-centered, corporate-driven, consumerist spectacle mountain climbing has often become, remember that the human spirit is capable of exploration and wonder, too; the urge to venture into the unknown, to catch a glimpse of what is on the other side... We should not forget them and how they climbed their way to immortality.

There are literally studies showing declines in male fertility, testosterone levels and grip strength.
(Grip strength is used as a proxy for strength overall.)
There is absolutely no good reason to think men today are as manly as they used to be when men today are exposed to plant estrogens, xenoestrogens, sedentary lifestyles, cradle to grave programs to condition them to be less masculine etc.
You think you're being smart because you're being pedantic but really you are just being autistic. You are willfully ignorant.

I told him I wanted something 80% road and 20% trail, something more rugged than my old kinvaras. Can I actually do some road running with them?

Ok guys, we have a lot of these big fucking ants in the backyard, they have nested in a couple trees and they are everywhere back there.

I have googled and watched youtube videos on them, but I am wondering if any one has first hand knowledge of these guys.

is it true that they only will nest in damaged/dying trees?

does that diamacous earth stuff work?

is borax and sugar traps an effective way to kill them?

what is the quickest way to finish them off?

Find a way to secure it to the bike anon. You're not in a extremely dangerous environment, you don't need it strapped to you. To ride smart, ride with the least amount of heavy, hard, and metal, material tethered to your body.

What would be the right way to proceed if your local nuclear power plant went full chernobyl?
Even if the military doesn't take over and stops people from leaving the area, the mass panic and huge numbers of people trying to move away would immediately get roads clogged. Would get your backpack on your back and hike your way /out/ from there be the best option?

It's best to walk towards the NPP while keeping an eye out for the wind direction.
Not worth mentioning that you have a problem when the cloud is over you so just adjust your path accordingly.
The dust doesn't rise just to fall immediately, so it's actually safer to be close, not too close of cause.
On your way there keep calling 911 until you reach the emergency services. Say "This is an emergency beacon call, please triangulate my position" and hang up. Repeat the process every 5 minutes.
Take all your stuff worth a damn (money, jewlery, precious metals) with you but leave papers at home. When you get extracted and are contaminated the papers severely slow down the process of getting treatment because they have to dig through paperwork.
Also take your gun with you if you have one and tell people to keep away since they could be contaminated, if they refuse and approach stop them at gunpoint. Don't use a caliber larger than 9mm Luger since something more powerful could spread contamination when you hit the person, FMJ should be fine in all cases though.
Set up camp around one km away from the plant if possible in a tree since it's constantly moving from the wind which blows radioactive particles away onto the ground and keep an eye on the cloud. Every morning you wake up make sure to give your tarp or tent a good shake to get contaminated dust out of it.
For food DON'T take canned food or anything that is in a closed package. The radiation will get stuck inside so keep everything in the open so it gets ventilated.
Water bottles are fine though since water blocks radiation. If you run out of water and have to resort to natural water deposits make sure they are atleast 3 feet deep and drink from the lowest possible spot. As I mentioned: Water blocks radiation so your safer the deeper you go. In lakes and rivers dive as deep as possible, sip and emerge.
In the unlucky case you get radioactive dust on you DON'T wash it off, you will just rub it into your pores.

There are also people kept alive thanks to modern medicine. Think about victims of strokes, heart problems, breathing problems or other diseases.

This is a common, but fucking retarded take on medicine. There's literally no silver bullets, it takes time to research and develop. Also there's massive incentive (financial and social) to find cures. There's no cabal holding back medical science a few shekels.

Also, it's MUCH MUCH easier to be altruistic/communal with welfare/medicine in high trust societies (which are usually homogenous).

Hey /out/siders. Kinda got my shit together over the past few years, lost a lot of weight and have been hiking/exploring regularly. Was looking in to multi-day hikes that weren't too out of the way for the first few times and decided on Berg Lake in Mt Robson park.

Unfortunately the only times available this year are late september and I'm not sure I'm ready for going in October. I was curious what the conditions were like in the last half of september on average. I know it can snow all year round, potentially be nice and balmy, or a hellish snowstorm the entire time. Was just wondering if you fags had any experience around this time of year.
>>
Was just out there 3 days ago, keep getting file too large when trying to post a picture. Go to Kinney or Whitehorn for an overnighter in the warm season if you're worried.

Going /out/ while high. Is this common for y’all or am I a degen druggie who isnt getting in touch with nature? I feel like I should force myself to appreciate the outdoors while sober but damn those scenic views are just something else after vaping some good wax. I would never hike or do something physically demanding though.

>>1542013
it makes sense to me that the two are corelated, seems like no one does this though. But I guess everyone that I know that loves /out/ in my state is a redneck who only drinks beers. Its easy af to do with vaping now. I bet theres lots of stoners going outdoors on the west coast states. As long as they dont make it obvious thats pretty based.
>>
>>1542020
mate, im in nz. half the fuckin' people hiking in the outdoors are on something. its great, way it should be. as for vapes, I mostly use those now. Less of a body high, more of a mind high; But, you only need half the weed and its way more convenient.
