  The Giant Beaver - new clues about its extinction
Posted by: Odin - Wed, 29 May 2019 22:21:16 +0000, 10:21 PM - Forum: Environment - No Replies

The beaver is one of Canada's major national animal icons, symbolizing hard work, eagerness, and the fur trade with indigenous peoples. For over 70 years, the beaver has also been embossed on the Canadian nickel coin.

Prior to 10,000 year ago, there was a much larger cousin of the smaller modern beaver that ranged throughout most of North America. The Giant Beaver was one of numerous megafaunal animals that went extinct near the end of the last ice age. Their last place of refuge seems to be just south of the Great Lakes region in southern Ontario.

New research has discovered that the giant beaver (Castoroides) did not have the same diet as the modern beaver, and did not eat trees or construct niches for itself using wood. The giant beaver seemed to rely solely on aquatic plants and ponds for its survival. As the ice age receded, most of these ponds dried up, leaving very few refugia habitats left for the giant beaver to live. This suggests an important role for climate as a factor in its extinction.

  Survival Lilly
Posted by: Odin - Mon, 27 May 2019 06:08:43 +0000, 06:08 AM - Forum: Skills & Decivilising - No Replies

Lilly is an Austrian wilderness survival expert with a thriving primitive skills channel. She isn't quite as stone age as some others, but she is more personable and talkative and fun to watch. Lilly is based mostly in the forests of Austria and Germany, though she also travels to other countries and tropical islands to do videos. I recently watched her 6 day solo stay on Vancouver Island from 2016, which was interesting ("Hey bear!" lol).

There are a few other female survival skills channels on youtube, but I think Lilly's is one of the most popular. It's good to see more women getting into it, and provides a break from what can sometimes be a bit of a macho dominated genre.

I notice a lot of primitive skills channels are really becoming popular, with subscriptions over 500,000 and view counts in the millions.

  Chad Zuber's Primitive Skills
Posted by: Odin - Mon, 27 May 2019 00:11:31 +0000, 12:11 AM - Forum: Skills & Decivilising - No Replies

Just came across this channel by Chad Zuber. I think he lives in the southwest USA, and also does some videos from northern Mexico.

Good videos for desert and semi-tropical climates.

  Whats peoples views on post-civ?
Posted by: joe pass - Sun, 12 May 2019 17:43:18 +0000, 05:43 PM - Forum: Philosophy - Replies (3)

I just started reading into post-civ anarchism the last few days. whats people on heres opinion/view on it? I like aspects to it such as post-civ are a lot more into permaculture and horticulture, I think it touches more on the matter of the ruins and left overs of civilization that will be left after civilization collapses and use the left overs in a DIY style, from what I'v read from AnPrims they don't go into this aspect much. 

For myself in general I don't like to dwell on the idea to much of what the world will be like after civilization collapses because there's no way to determine what it might look like so it's a bit pointless. But still sometimes its fun to day dream.

  Honor Revolutionaries
Posted by: Hoot - Tue, 30 Apr 2019 17:06:49 +0000, 05:06 PM - Forum: Culture & Art - No Replies

Those willing to make sacrifices and take risks to protect nature and restore freedom/autonomy deserve the highest of honor. I hope many of you are as excited as me to be alive during this time ! A new batch of fighters await. I say "new" because the old/fake honor is over. The old ways of honoring a culture and a military that protects its own enslavement are coming to an end. It was all so pathetic. All in all, just a little mistake on the part of humanities evolution, considering our lasting existence compared to our short time in the industrial revolution mistake.
    I have a strong feeling of being above all the fake honor that this land mass still displays. It is weakness.We are better than this. We love the earth and hate control. These are values that unfortunately, our elders didn't get. They all die, never realizing their failure to recognize who the real enemy is. The TV was a pretty fucking powerful tool. May the TV go out forever.
 And may enemies in hiding be found.
                                                       Hoot!

Is this funny ?:   https://www.nationalguard.com/search?q=stem
(comes up "internal server error". "we're currently troubleshooting a problem")

I wonder how busy these boot-lickers are these days ? Army national guard STEM soldiers. Highly indoctrinated, jello-brained,order-followers,working for money $. Protecting the technology tools that the sheep and their own slave-masters depend on so desperately. How pathetic is it to dedicate your life towards protecting the very system that enslaves you and your family ? They look like scum to me.
This is your "guard" at work. Or at least trying:  https://www.nationalguard.com/careers/stem/technology

Hoot!
