Heading Out on Your Own — Day 21: Know Your Way Around a Kitchen If there remains a lingering sense among older generations of men that cooking is “women’s work,” I would think it is probably fading greatly among the younger set. True, for much of human history men did the hunting/farming and women did the cooking, and this arrangement continued to work well into the 20th century. Young men made a quick transition from living with their flapjack-flipping mother, to settling down with a meatloaf-making wife. But those days are long gone; accommodations that come with a cook are now virtually non-existent (although it lives on in fraternity houses), and men are remaining bachelors longer – well into their late 20s and early 30s. Maturing into a grown man means becoming self-sufficient, so daily dependence isn’t an option. Keeps you healthy and strong. Saves you money. Impresses the ladies. Gives you enjoyment. Now, I’m not a home cooking zealot. Let’s get started. Stocking Your Kitchen: Essential Equipment Hardware: Pots/Pans/Baking Dishes Thanks Matt!

7th Grader mimics Nature 13 year old copies Nature to Improve Solar Performance Thirteen year old Aidan Dwyer was walking in the woods in Upstate New York in the winter and noticed a spiral pattern to tree branches. Aidan realized the tree branches and leaves had a mathematical spiral pattern that could be shown as a fraction. Aidan's backyard in Northport, NY. The 7th grader next wondered why nature used such a pattern? Aidan discovered that the Fibonacci pattern helps deciduous trees, in higher latitudes, efficiently track the Sun and collect the most sunlight even in the thickest forest, on the cloudiest days. The American Museum of Natural History has awarded Aidan a Young Naturalist Award for 2011. See the detailed description of his discoveries on the Museum's website: *www.amnh.org In late 2012, early 2013, Aidan builds a larger model: Postscript: Many have questioned why Aidan did not measure power output from the solar cells, instead he only measured voltage, without a load attached ("open circuit").

The glory of hockey stick art Image from slapshotcreations.com The dog gate above is, as the caption mentions, taken from slapshotcreations.com , a website put together by @BillShandler that showcases some of the cool stuff he’s built from used hockey sticks. He inspired me to search out some more great hockey stick woodwork, and thanks to a Twitter request and the fancy google machine, I’m proud to present the best of my initial findings.

So, so great. * There’s about 300 different ways to build a hockey chair, so I’ve compiled the most common below: I’m all about using goalie paddles for arm-rests. * And now a few from the web… The hockey stick chest: Badass. * The hockey stick cutting board : No idea how that was made, but it looks like it was a lot of work.

Survival Smokers The following information comes from the US Army Survival Manual If the situation and time allow, you should preserve the extra meat for later use. If the air is cold enough, you can freeze the meat. In warmer climates, however, you will need to use a drying or smoking process to preserve it. One night of heavy smoking will make meat edible for about 1 week. To smoke meat, you will need an enclosed area-for instance, a teepee or a pit. Teepee smoker Rack smoker To use the pit method of smoking meat, dig a hole about 3 feet (1 meter) deep and 1 1/2 feet (1/2 meter) in diameter. Properly smoked meat will look like a dark, brittle, curled stick. How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string.
