Camping With Candles
Candles seem to be an undervalued item to the average bushwhacker - it's one of those items I read off in a lot of bugout lists but never actually see in a lot of bugout bags, and even when the power goes out in most peoples' houses it's flashlights and not wax sticks they pull out. Honestly, until a few years ago I had never even heard it mentioned as being useful for anything but drying kindling and considered it a waste of space. Then, after watching some old fart on Youtube cook a whole meal on one, I decided to start keeping a 24hr beeswax fatty in my firestarter kit just in case it was ever impossible (or inconvenient) to get a flame lit.

Well guess what? Candles are a little more than just light in the dark and a dryer for your bird's nest. The average candle also puts off about 80w of heat (compared to around 100w for the average resting adult). That means two dozen candles is a space heater when, say, a massize freeze puts your entire state out of power for a week straight. Bigger is better for burn time, and beeswax puts off the most heat apparently, so a hypothetical box of 300 or so day-long decent candles could warm a cold room of family member for two weeks without power... a healthy amount of smoke inhalation notwithstanding.

A similar-working old trick for surviving out in the extreme cold was to cover yourself in a wool blanket and light a candle inside, basically putting the heat of another human inside to help warm the bundle. Putting the candle inside a small lantern can help lessen the chance of burning things, so even if bought specifically for this purpose one could now leave the electric lantern at home. And, as mentioned above, a single candle can eventually boil the water you need for hydration and even heat food in a bind.

Then there's the wax itself - a useful and less than convenient substance to procure naturally. It can waterproof paper, lubricate hinges, screws, and zippers, protect fraying ropes and laces, fill gaps in wood handles and housing, or just be remixed with flammable materials for homemade firestarter. Genuinely, I think we need to take another look at candles in soite of all our modern gadgetry. I'm already looking for that little lantern; can't wait to keep light like the woodsmen of old.

in addition to the aforementioned glass house, @twobeds ended up building this cool little house out next to it, which i was happy to bridge over to using the new nether blocks

Easy to see how Squid Games criticizes capitalism, but I see it as also criticizing illusions of "civility." The loser father with a gambling problem who steals money from grandma turns out to be one of the most altruistic characters in times of crisis while some of the others, who are less washed up and appear "civil," stab each other in the back as soon as they get a chance. Crisis reveals character. Just b/c s/b knows how to display proper etiquette does not indicate strong moral character. We're only ever one crisis away from finding out who's what.

A student once asked anthropologist Margaret Mead, “What is the earliest sign of civilization?” The student expected her to say a clay pot, a grinding stone, or maybe a weapon. Margaret Mead thought for a moment, then she said, “A healed femur.” A femur is the longest bone in the body, linking hip to knee. In societies without the benefits of modern medicine, it takes about six weeks of rest for a fractured femur to heal. A healed femur shows that someone cared for the injured person, did their hunting and gathering, stayed with them, and offered physical protection and human companionship until the injury could mend. Mead explained that where the law of the jungle—the survival of the fittest—rules, no healed femurs are found. The first sign of civilization is compassion, seen in a healed femur.

BRUH I JUST FOUND THIS THEORY ABOUT SQUID GAME
I give all the credits to the first person who posted this theory: @ LEE_DOUDA on tiktok
.
.
Remember this guy ?
Tumblr media
He proposed to Seung Gi-hun to choose between tow cardboard: red and blue. He chosed the blue one and so all participants in the game.
Tumblr media
We notice that all of them wear blue clothes. But what would have happen if he chose the red one ? Would he become one of these guys ?
let me know your opinions about this :))

Sometimes all you can do is survive and wait for situations outside of your control to change and improve. This can feel scary or frustrating or hopeless and that’s okay. All you have to do is stick around to see what comes next. I believe in you.
