Did the advent of agriculture and the subsequent isolation from nature that it caused ruin humanity?

You can substitute whatever brown fence-jumpers that you'd like.
indingenous people across the globe participated in cultivation and rough agricultural practices going far back into primitive times so what do you mean
>Can you imagine spending sun up to sundown foraging for nuts and berries and shit, just to still be hungry at the end of the day??
Instead we spend 10/16 of our waking hours on fake mundane jobs and still haven't cooked or eaten anything or done any chores.

>Can’t have babies and shit because there ain’t enough shit around for food, and wild animals to compete with.
Can't have babies because women are too busy with work to be mothers (if they even date you) and you still can't afford half the things a baby needs (which they only need because women are working instead of being mothers).

> and wild animals to compete with.
Instead you compete with other people for resources.

>Because we can grow the food at home we could spend more time doing fun stuff like hunting and fishing and fucking.
I am not allowed to own guns, I can't go fishing because the only method of transportation is roads and I don't have a drivers' license, and I don't have the time to walk/bike there due to work. Also I don't get laid.
Everyone used to live that way anon, and if you jerky meats and dry your seeds n berries n shit you can actually have quite the surplus. Add a little horticulture in the mix and you can have enough free time to have babies and build earthen mound structures for temples, etc.
No, it was the masons

Sawyer s2 gets rid of chemicals. Keep the filter in your sleeping bag though because if it freezes at night you're fuucked.

Perhaps try the pool granulated chlorine.

Through a banana?

I currently live in Germany and I hate it.
I'll be moving to another country to be able to live remotely and actually enjoy some proper out without compromising hardcore.

I've narrowed it down to Finland or canada.
What would you choose and why ?

Currently a big fan of Canada but the tax situation is a bit meh and housing seems to be expansive even in rural areas (would love to hear some insight on how this really is)

*short by North American standards.

Easier to go to other nordic countries. Good fishing on Norway's highland lakes. Plus they took all the best sceneries.

I'd propably choose Finland since it's in Europe and I already live here, but I've always wanted to see the turbo-Finland that Canada is.
I've ventured through south Tirol via train through the alps and indeed, it was a grandiose land of flat fields and orchards, terraced vinyards and steep 3000 foot mountains rising from the earth as towering monoliths of geologic upheaval.

Why? I have the swimbait and thr wakebait. Only ever tried them to see how they swam, but I plan to use them soon. They swim good.

Thanks. Problem I had was casting this far with so much wind. I got the walleye on what turned out to be a caveman version of a drop shot rig and the catfish on the same rig but with chicken on the hook. My rod is rated for 3/4oz max which was a little too light for where I wanted to cast.

I can do you one up I was at Paradiso one year and they under-estimated how many shitters to rent out because after the first day or two the porta potties had mountains of shit/tampons/tp cresting out of the bowl like mountains. I shit in the bush instead but the only conceivable way would be to hover. The third night my friends told me "you have to see this shit" and brought me to the porta potties. People were fucking inside of them high off drugs, door open, rave thots laying on the mountains of shit over the bowl getting fucked from behind.
Because of that I think the schizos might have been right about these things being demonic rituals after that Travis Scott concert. Same year there was a giant circus tent thing in the middle of the camping area people were fucking kids in.

The decimation of wild species by early American pioneers was completely and 100% justified
It's fucking impossible to grow anything that can sustain you let alone a family if you let wild animals run around unchecked.
I'm about to wage a genocidal war against every mammal and every bird larger than a sparrow because not even a little potted strawberry is safe from getting dug up by squirrels or fucking torn apart by jays and woodpeckers.
I'm pro-mass extinction. Above the microscopic level (microbes and fungi and stuff), biodiversity is a meme. If I want to hear birds I'll raise some meat pigeons. If I want tall might trees I'll grow an orchard. If you disagree with me it's because you're a soft little city faggot who learns about animals from TV shows and not life

There are population control hunts in many states now. Your chance of getting drawn is usually extremely low however, and some states have a 1 bison per hunter lifetime limit. I know a guy in AZ who got drawn for a population control bison hunt, I think he took it down with a .300 WSM. Said he filled the freezer with enough meat to last a year. Some states also have private herd hunts.

I like a chill guy. Reptiles are always kinda fun to see.
I love red efts so much, they're really beautiful animals.

Image is blurry, but since its scales are unkeeled, I would assume some species of racer? It's hard to tell.

Y'all should be somewhat careful around salamanders. The vast majority of them are entirely harmless, but the bright ones (like red efts or ensatina) are pretty toxic. Ensatina in particular produces tetrodotoxin, the same stuff in puffer fish.

In the picture you see these tiny "mini-altoid-tins".
Those are the ones that usually contain like breath minths or something. They are about the size of 1/3 of a real altoid tin. Or about the size of a normal match box.

Now, these are very good as match containers. Just take some ordinary sized matches from a match box and put them into one of these mini-tins, and it is good for mose outdoorsy activities. The tin will keep the matches dry from rain.

But it is not perfectly waterproof. The hinges of the tin are unprotected, and if you fall into aditch or have to wade throug neck-high water or something... that is not enough to keep your matches dry. So I was thinking, is there some version of these tins that is a) match-box sized and b) fully waterproof?

The thing that I am looking for is that magical "the same size of a match box, but waterproof". And those cylinder-shaped plastic match containers are just not the same size. They are more closer to full altoid tin in size. So those are no good. I wish to make a sort of EDC set with waterproof match box (which is also more or less the size of a match box).

Anyone know if such waterproof match-box sized tins exist?

shaved legs, hairy hand- odd combo
Yeah okay, it could work. They intentionally have the bar so high to get a decent job in that field (other than E-1 actual forest janitor) that you need to go in middle-management, be a entry level beta boy for half a decade, or get your paperwork waived (requires a tan)
Thats my gfs arms not my legs lol

That does sound lame tho

we see through your ruse, tranny.
I wanted to go that route, but it was "are you qualified to do a middle management role with years of experience? No? well.. take seasonal work for six years and then you can get an actual job"
when I was working fires, most of the rangers I met were wom*n hint hint
and I shave my arms when I am in a relationship, I recommend you shave atleast your fingers same reason you trim your nails

Uh. IDK. All the mountains around me are like 10.5-12k tall with 5-7500 feet elevation gain. I've probably done a couple dozen.
Depends on what qualifies as a "peak" and what qualifies as a respectable "summit"

Is there a way to supercharge how many Runners you can get off of a single plant?
I have 6 plants rn how many new plants could I get of these realistically this season.
This should be posted in Homegrown general, but I feel like I usually get about 3 runners off 1 strawberry plant and then one of of every runner after that. I also don't manage my plants so that could probably be improved, it's just a patch that the previous property owner had and I just let it be.
I'm not an expert, just guessing here... but I think runners are a flowering cycle behavior. So if you trigger flowering you should get more of them. Some ways I know to do this:
>shorter daylight period
>redder spectrum of light
>phosphorus and potassium-heavy fertilizer
>damage to the plant, like pruning or pinching
Activated biochar

Lots like easily 30 from 6 plants but maybe as many as 100
It's probably going to depend on the variety
I had this sort of question too when I first got strawberries
Now I have more plants than I know what to do with
Focus on growing the new plants big and strong rather than quantity
I have probably hundreds of tiny plants each year that I just throw away or put in ornamental contains like little bonzai strawberries

Riverfront property in the town proper is expensive. Riverfront property between the towns (not fully innawoods) is cheap. It's got a median gauge height of around a foot and a half most of the year, with springtime rains bringing it to flood stage a (20 ft) a few times a year and otherwise typically peaking at around 13 feet during heavy storms outside of springtime. Would it be possible to build just develop a community around the river?

>Strawmanning my post
No, my great grandparents owned acreage that my grandparents used to build their homes, and then my parents after them. My parents' generation lost all the familial land holdings either through messy divorces, selling to move elsewhere, or simply forfeiting acreage by defaulting on taxes. I'd like to go the route of my great grandparents and get some land so that my familiy/siblings can fuck up and have our descendants take it for granted in 100 or so years as well. The land my family had wasn't developed when they got it, the development came around it over decades, so I'm not worried about it being immediately "urban".
Apparently they're moving to Portugal en masse now because they are immediately upper class there and it has a Mediterranean climate which nowhere else in the US has outside of the west coast.
i doubt they would actually move to an african country, no matter how nice the weather is
