Here a few years ago they asked my daughter, who is pretty much of a jock, to join the BSA to raise their enrollment. She was one of three girls in the local boy scouts troop. LOL!!!

The last hour we’ve been getting torrential downpours of rain and hail. Thunder and lightening like you wouldn’t believe, and cloudbursts so heavy they cut grooves down our gravel driveway and looked like a dirty river. Unbelievable!! I’m sure that’s gotta be the heaviest downpour we’ve had here in the 20 years we’ve been in this location. It’s climate change all right!!


Just had to jump through the Authentication BS again to post this.  ;o(  I was struggling with that 5+5 problem but musta got it right. :o)

On a related note I guess the BSA have fallen on hard times. All the kids want to watch TV and play video games. One Boy Scouts district in the state borrowed money for building when times were good and now they don’t have enough scouts-activities to pay off their loan and as a result are talking about logging off the forest at their camp.

A Boy Scouts Camp without a forest! What’s the world coming to?

What if Johnny Millenial can’t build a fire …

SNG … sounds like you are ready for the coming hard times!

Don’t let that guy in!

ipso facto @ 19:24…..Interesting list…..

Posted by silverngold @ 20:56 on July 19, 2016  

But having lived off the grid for 10+ years of my life I think I’m good for most of them, plus a lot more, like gutting and dressing out wild game, rendering bear fat for lard, changing my  logging truck tires in the bush, building our own hydraulic water ram to provide house water from a spring located 50 vertical feet below our log home which I also built, making a Mitchel Banke water turbine to produce our own electricity, etc. When you live 45 miles from the nearest town with any services you learn to be totally self sufficient.

The one that might give me a hard time though is that 15% tip…….. but I bet with Farmboy’s help he and I could even figure that one out!! LOL!!!

The gist of it is true I think

40 shockingly simple skills that today’s pathetic Millennials have no idea how to do

#1) Plant a seed in dirt and grow an edible plant.

#2) Change a bicycle tire.

#3) Sharpen a pencil.

#4) Identify the name of any tree or bird in the real world.

#5) Check the oil level in any engine.

#6) Name a single star in the night sky.

#7) Change a blown fuse in anything (or even reset a circuit breaker).

#8) Drive a stick shift. (Many don’t even know what “stick shift” means.)

#9) Navigate using a printed map without using GPS.

#10) Strike a punching bag without injuring their frail, fragile wrists.

#11) Repair a broken garden hose without throwing it away and buying a new hose.

#12) Stop bleeding with a tourniquet.

#13) Cut a piece of wood in a straight line using a hand saw.

#14) Carry a 50 lb. bag of animal feed on their shoulder for 50 meters.

#15) Cook a real meal that isn’t “instant” or microwaveable.

#16) Start a camp fire, even with a lighter.

#17) Sharpen a knife, even using a knife sharpener.

#18) Build a shelter in the forest by using only forest materials.

#19) Use a car jack without ripping the bumper off the vehicle.

#20) Chop wood for a wood stove.

#21) Locate and reset the ground fault tolerant button on an electrical outlet to restore power to the outlets.

#22) Dry clothes on a clothesline.

#23) Strip a copper wire.

#24) Securely tie a rope to anything at all.

#25) Calculate a 15% waiter tip in their heads.

#26) Make a broken bone splint out of anything at all.

And for advanced skills, Millennials have absolutely no idea how to do any of the following:

#27) Catch a fish.

#28) Clean a pistol.

#29) Swap out the hydraulic hose on a piece of farm equipment.

#30) Intelligently read any food label.

#31) Purify water using a plastic bottle and sunlight.

#32) Make a water filter out of charcoal and sand.

#33) Fold a paper airplane.

#34) Make an emergency funnel out of aluminum foil.

#35) Chop down a dead tree with an axe.

#36) Read a compass.

#37) Cut a stuck seatbelt to escape a burning vehicle.

#38) Paddle a canoe in any intended direction at all.

#39) Open any can of food without using electricity.

#40) Siphon fuel from the gas tank of an abandoned car.

Now ask yourself this question, and answer honestly. Given that most Millennials know absolutely nothing about the real world — and have no real-world skills to speak of — how can they possibly survive the next great collapse?

The only time they’re ever venturing out into the real world is when they’re playing Pokemon Go (and walking off cliffs or stumbling into traffic as a result). Go figure…

I don’t know about posting with an I phone. Perhaps there is no way round it, or maybe someone more familiar with posting from a phone has some pointers.

Melania will bring some class back to the White House

When I’m going “somewhere else” I just open a new window … but sometimes if I have closed the Oasis window and come back I’m still logged in with no trouble posting.

I can see where that might cause problems though esp with an I phone.

I know I know melinia

It’s possible but am usually on my phone not computer. Have two of them now, got a portable one for about 150 for a grandson on sale so grabbed one myself for that price. They say OT works good.  Just too spoiled with busy life to use computer when you have a pocket computer although typing not as easy. I used to use the handle cookie to be antagonistic about them on a French Canadian stock site years ago but that got me into the .. What kind of cookies lol French was too forgotton having a hard time keeping up with them and didn’t expect them to wait for me but was a fun site. Ces’t la ville.

Opening a new window the problem is not sure about if it’s still using data on a phone so I close all windows a lot when I stop using it. Something else that’s fast on a phone.

see what happens when
