100 Years Ago.
HOW TO MAKE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER
Dissolve one pound of salt and half a pound of sat
ammonia: in two quarts bywater and bottler's liquor in
thin glass bottles holding about a quart each. Should a tire
break out, dash one or more of the bottles into the blames,
and any serious outbreak will probably be averted.

steam will soon draw out the splinter.

ting these into a box or tin of dry the eggs

together, immerse completely in water, and place one
end in the pail, weighted, and touching the bottom.
Rest the other end on the soil: a separate plait of wool is
advisable for each pot.
HOW TO LIGHT A MATCH m THE WIND
The of lighting a match in a wind can be
to a great extent overcome if thin shavings are dirst cut on

The state of the Boy Scouts of America is **** now. Nothing compared to 10-20 years ago. They went ahead and made everything so easy that any buffoon could get Eagle. It's almost as bad as American TaeKwonDo which has just turned into a monopoly to get as much money as possible out of the students...

i didn't get to spend very long in the beaver cub scouts (my dad was supposed to take me, but he was lazy as ****) and instead i decided to learn up on survival techniques that are relatively good. i have a book on various useful knots, i know an obsessive-compulsive amount about hygiene and i'm currently looking for a book on edible plants.
with a bowl, a cooking pot, a clean tin pail and a knife, i could survive in the wild if need be
