For years, I opened my 11th-grade U.S. history classes by asking students, “What’s the name of that guy they say discovered America?” A few students might object to the word “discover,” but they all knew the fellow I was talking about. “Christopher Columbus!” several called out in unison.

“Right. So who did he find when he came here?” I asked. Usually, a few students would say, “Indians,” but I asked them to be specific: “Which nationality? What are their names?”

Silence.

In more than 30 years of teaching U.S. history and guest-teaching in others’ classes, I’ve never had a single student say, “TaĆ­nos.” So I ask them to think about that fact. “How do we explain that? We all know the name of the man who came here from Europe, but none of us knows the name of the people who were here first—and there were hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of them. Why haven’t you heard of them?”

This ignorance is an artifact of historical silencing—rendering invisible the lives and stories of entire peoples.

Make An Easy And Powerful Micro Cooking Stove From A Cat Food Can



Hey Mini-RVers — Ever thought of downsizing your camp kitchen?
Seriously, why have a cooking range taking up valuable space in your tiny house? Even if you’re “just” using a portable camp-stove sitting on a countertop, it’s possible you can downsize even more. By... ...

DIY "On Demand" Instant Warm Water Heater For Camping


Need ideas for quickly generating warm shower water? Watch this amusing video showing a simple system using a water pump and heat exchanger coil.

While it could certainly be improved upon with some easy modifications that would help it both heat up faster and be much safer, it’s a great illustration of creative thinking, and a simple demonstration of exactly how an on-demand hot water system works. It would be interesting to see something like this installed more permanently… Perhaps even running off of a small wood-burning rocket stove? ...

DIY Cheap Easy Solar Water Purification


Do you need to disinfect a few batches of water to make them safe to drink? You can do this easily by setting a few bottles of clear water out in the sun for the duration of the day (or over two days if it’s 1/2 cloudy). This method, called SODIS (i.e. “SO-lar DIS-infection”), uses the sun’s UVA rays to effectively kill bacteria and viruses. One requirement is that the water in the bottle be clear enough to read through. If you’re starting with dirty water, you should strain it through a clean cloth and let it settle first.

(Note that this method won’t actually filter the water — it will simply kill pathogens. But there are easy ways to filter water, using a quick sand filter or, if you have a more permanent stationary installation, a biosand water filter.) ...

spooky question #10

rebelghostalliance:

bogleech:

blinkpinkinc:

what is the most terrifying creature on this planet?
(if you can’t think of one, may i suggest looking up deep sea creatures?)

image

It would be harmless to a human (and the pale, slimy fish we see here, which seems to spend its whole life as its symbiote) but the sheer idea of Stygiomedusa gigantea is so powerfully haunting it gives me chills to think about; especially from the perspective of its prey.

image

What you see here is at least twenty feet in length, and they’re seen so rarely they could easily get bigger. Their red-black coloration makes them invisible in the abyss, and they don’t have any stinging tentacles - only the vast oral arms, which as in other jellies are an extension of the digestive lining.

Prey are simply folded up and smothered in the sheets of tissue, and already begin to digest without even being drawn into the bell.

They’re out there, right now, thousands of miles away in the freezing abyss, billowing like huge, empty cloaks, blind and thoughtless. They don’t need to chase their prey. Helpless little things just find themselves trapped in a sticky, living shadow, wrapping up tighter in the membranous jelly the more they struggle. They digest so slowly that exhaustion or suffocation probably kills them first.

“only 114 sightings in the last 110 years”
