Humans:

It's survival of the fittest out there, baby. Leave the invasive plants. Protecting weakling native plants over stronger invasive species is asking for an ecological disaster. Next time your inna woods and you see an invasive plant, give it a pat on the back and keep trucking.

Yeah, less biodiversity sure is nice. Nobody notices extinction of inconspicuous plant and insect species, so it must be inconsiquential. I love living here in eastern Pennsylvania, where most of the ground cover is stilt-grass, tearthumb, and multiflora rose.

By the time you're 17 you should've realized that you don't want to be an interpreter for disabled people who very rarely have anything of actual substance to say. Especially the deaf, they're astoundingly maladjusted and obnoxious for some reason.

Seconded to everyone who just says "guide x for deaf people".
I guarantee you studied this for the same reason people study "business". The difference is that you're fucking right.
Approach any organization at any level. Say you want to do what they do. Flap your hands a bit. Sign language services are a selling point for every industry.
Every employer expects to retrain new hires anyway, so they'll train you from zero if needed. Start with your strongest passion and work your way down.

I ordered a thumb trigger release aid for my compound bow. Used an index trigger style before but got annoyed with the wrist strap always shifting and the caliper smacking against my middle finger knuckle every time i shot the bow.

Thumb releases are expensive but i consider it worth it.

How good are these things really? I have an adeaquate folding blade knife and am looking into getting a fixed blade for the heavier duty outdoors stuff. If I were to go Mora what which one would I get?

I heard there's some white chick in the woods of Germany that regularly sees like 7 of them

Has anyone that has practiced the Wim Hof method discovered any tangible benefits to doing so? The increased cold resilience is appealing to me as I live in a cold climate and go /out/ often, so being able to pack/wear less clothing would free up some bag space and lighten my load. Just don't know if I could spend hours hiking in the cold with inadequate clothing without freezing to death.

Is that the result of chinese foot binding?
>>
>>1572688
Best is to just leave it alone and stop walking. If you absolutely need to keep walking because your bad life decisions are catching up with you, then you can take a needle and puncture it.

Make sure to heat the needle up with a lighter first if it isn't sterile. Then puncture it and let the blister drain by itself. If necessary apply some mild pressure on the area around the blister. Don't push on the blister itself. Then you need to keep the area clean and bandage it to avoid infection. That's the downside of puncturing it. If you just leave it alone, then takes care of itself.

The Britbong army solution to this used to be to draw the puss out with a hypodermic needle then inject a solution of potassium permanganate into the blister. Dried out the skin so fast you end up with instant callous, but hurts like a motherfucker.
