5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety.

Willow Bark Slip Whistle The Willow Bark Slip Whistle is a nice easy little project requiring only a small knife and a piece of freshly cut willow. The piece of willow should be about thumb width in diameter and about a hand span (150mm) in length (this will be plenty for the whistle and also give you a good length ‘working handle’ to carve with safely). For this example I’m using a piece of Grey Sallow as it is locally abundant in the area, but any willow will work just as well. It works best in the spring or early summer when the sap is rising in the trees. Safety first, note the comfortable sitting position with elbows resting on the knees, and a wooden chopping block for cutting onto. Elbows on knees helps to prevent a very serious injury such as cutting through your femoral artery, and having a wooden block to cut on will protect the edge of you knife.

Gear and Resources for Long Distance Hikers Here is a fairly basic backpack for those outdoor types who wouldn't mind making their own gear and go through the trouble of putting their hands (and feet) to work with scissors and a sewing machine. For the sake of simplicity, I'll dub our project as the LAB (for Lightweight Adventure Backpack). This actually came into being after I constructed the "van Peski" pack or the GVP G4 pack posted at a site some time ago. And yeah, I was able to download a copy of the instructions and diagrams. Unfortunately, the site is currently unavailable and I believe the authors are updating and rewriting the instructions. I had great success with the van Peski pack project, in fact I have already made three of them with each subsequent model sporting improvements in comfort and utility.

Lucid Dreaming By lucid dreaming, you can gain complete control over the one place that no one will ever care about: your imagination. Just The Facts Lucid dreaming is a scientifically proven phenomenon. How to Forecast Weather Ever wondered how to forecast the weather without actually using instruments? Check the Clouds: Clouds can tell us a lot about the weather. For example, they can tell us if it’s going to be warmer on a particular night by simply being there. That’s because they prevent heat radiation from escaping. Self-Suffiency Self-sufficiency is a good way to reduce pollution while saving money.

Anyone can become more or less self-sufficient; the only thing required is time and work. Food - you can grow your own vegetables. Vegetables can grow almost anywhere including at very little space as windows and balconies.

Build a rocket stove Author’s note, 2015-02-14: Based on the interest I’ve received in this project, I’m considering selling plans for a stove similar to the one described in this article. See the Rocket Stove Plans section at the end of the article and let me know if you’d be interested. Original article: For some time I’ve been considering the best way to deal with a pile of scrap wood that has been growing next to my home, the result of many woodworking and carpentry projects I’ve been involved in over the years. Make your own gear I decided to put Make Your Own Gear under Techniques instead of under gear. My reasoning is gear is just that - gear. But making your own is something not everyone does.
