Arc welding using car batteries and quarters

Arc welding using car batteries and quarters | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Imagine the apocalypse has struck, zombies are running wild, and civilization as we know it has basically ceased to exist– no phone service, no Internet, no electricity. Still, you must repair a metal tool but there are no welding machines available for use. There are however, plenty of abandoned cars left scattered about and since money is now useless in a post-apocalyptic world, plenty of spare quarters that now have no economic value. How will you make hard-core repairs to steel objects or construct new tools needed for survival? With three automobile batteries, battery cables, and quarters you can create a high amperage arc welder that will create an arc of electricity that is hot enough to melt steel. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/general-repair/arc-welding-using-car-automobile-batteries-quarters-welding-rod

Iconic visual - activists hang 70-foot "RESIST" banner from crane behind White House | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Several Greenpeace activists hung a 70-foot political banner from a crane near the White House today. The banner measures 70-by-35 feet and is strategically positioned so that anyone looking at the South Lawn can clearly see the message directed at President Donald Trump. The sign has just one word – “RESIST’. http://geekslop.com/2017/resist-banner-crane-behind-white-house

Geek Slop's Civil Disobedience handbook - a practical guide to demonstrations, protests, and getting rowdy | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Civil disobedience, in the form of marches, rallies, pickets, protests, sit-ins, vigils, or demonstrations, is a necessary component of a functional, free democracy. Although potentially not pleasant, civil disobedience is often required when other attempts to invoke societal change fail. http://geekslop.com/2017/geek-slop-civil-disobedience-handbook-practical-guide-demonstrations

Full text of ICA-2017-1 - Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections (with annotations) | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The following was released to the general public on January 6, 2017 by the DNI (Director of National Intelligence). In short, the release accuses Russia of attempting to influence the US’s 2016 election using a persona known as Guccifer 2.0 to release stolen (hacked) documents via Wikileaks. Regular readers will not be surprised by the findings as I drew this same conclusion in this article a few weeks ago. http://geekslop.com/2017/full-text-ica-2017-1-assessing-russian-activities-intentions-recent-us-elections-annotations

Flax plant - the many uses of the flax plant in the wild | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The flax plant is an excellent source of food, natural fibers, and oils. Flax grows to about 4-feet tall and 2-feet wide. Leaves are wider in the middle and shaped like a lance tip. Flax grows natively in cooler regions. Often found just above the waterline in bogs, the plant grows in organic dirt or well-drained sandy loam. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/food-food-water-shelter/food-procurement/edible-wild-plants/flax-plant-uses-in-wilderness

How to break your fall in combat situations to minimize injury and quickly maintain fighting advantage | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
It is quite common to fall or be thrown during a combat situation. To minimize the chance of injury, and ensure you can bounce back to your feet quickly, you must use falling techniques to absorb the impact of the fall and allow use of your body’s momentum to quickly return to your feet. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/combat-and-self-defense/how-to-break-your-fall-in-combat-situations

Trump minions fight back with combo Sieg-Heil-Trump parade and George Soros protest in locations across the US | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
They’re calling themselves a part of Anonymous and to prove they’re a lot smarter than the Alt-Righters, threw up a Dox of George Soros (who they say funds Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, etc.). Turns out the “Dox” was nothing more than a nifty little bio (see below). Today they announced a “nationwide Trump Parade and protest calling for the arrest of George Soros”. Combine the events – more bang for the buck, I guess. http://geekslop.com/2016/pro-trump-parade-george-soros-protest-locations-across-us

Students at Texas State University are dying to have a good time (meanwhile, let's ignore the elephant in San Marcos) | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Conveniently situated off I-35, splitting the authority of Hays County and Guadalupe County, the campus sits near San Marcos River and Guadalupe River – both popular party destinations for students of an age when rational adult-like decision-making is just beginning to take root. Being a “party school” may be a good draw for the local economy – but also presents its own set of problems for the community. http://geekslop.com/2016/texas-state-university-deadly-party-school-culture

Rule 41 changes pass - long live legalized electronic eavesdropping of all Americans! | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The new Rule 41 dictate is going to be law and it’s a doozy, both mind-boggling (for its stupidity) and stomach-churning (for its stupidity) at the same time. Effectively, what the law does is allow any judge, anywhere (including Podunk, Texas), to grant a warrant for electronic surveillance of any US citizen. If you thought the NSA spying fiasco was bad – you ain’t seen nothing yet. http://geekslop.com/2016/rule-41-changes-pass-legalized-electronic-surveillance-of-all-americans
