Do you think it's lame to get a climbing related tattoo?

I'm considering to get a small tattoo on either inside of my forearm or my shoulderblade. I'd appreciate any idea or suggestion.

Also rock climbing general.

Not a bad place to start, that’s how a lot of people are starting nowadays. I’d rent shoes and chalk and boulder at the gym, get some ideas and see how you like it, then rent a harness shoes and chalk and find someone who will belay you. I’d look up the retraced figure 8 and learn how to tie that before doing that though. Only when you think you want to invest in climbing should you start buying gear. Also, climbers are some of the nicest people /out/ that I’ve met, so if you have questions, just ask and I’m sure people at the gym will help you.
>>
>>1157221
I find climbers to be quite dismissive and passive unless you get a proper conversation going with them, got some decent advice from a fair few of them.
People who exclusively indoor climb melt my head though.
>>
are some people just terrible at climbing? I was top roping with a random guy at the gym today and he could barely climb 5.11c/d (comparable to maybe a 5.9 or 10a outside). He told me he had been climbing 1-3 times a week for 6 years and seemed to be in pretty good shape.

comparatively I can climb 12b/c at the same gym and have been climbing for 6 months. is that not a normal pace to get better? I thought I wasn't very good. When I started climbing I was completely out of shape and could barely do a v1 (6'0" and 140 lbs, only leg muscle from hiking a lot)
>>
>>1157757
Depends on how bro-ey they are. The chill guys are the easier to deal with ones.
>>1158042
Yeah it’s honestly just kind of relative. You could have better technique than him, he could just have really bad technique, he isn’t as strong as he looks, your gyms grades could be fucked up, that’s where he’s plateaued, etc (all speculation of course, I mean no disrespect). If pure fairly fit you can muscle through a few routes, but you’ll be tired way before someone with good technique will be. If he’s in a routine then he is going to plateau eventually and it’s hard to break out of that.

You may not have hit that plateau yet. When you feel like you have, change your style. Boulder for a while, do finger board workouts, do ARC climbing, etc. Eric Horst’s Training for Climbing is a great book that helps you through stuff like that.

Thanks for the advice anon
There's a shitload of climbable areas in the bush near where I live, it'd be a shame if I didn't experience them

Is there a breed of Rooster thats so aggressive it can fight off small mammals?
Im raising chickens and theres a racoon or something breaking into the pin every other week and kills a hen or a few chicks.
And my cock is such a fucking pussy he just lets it happen. I really hope there is maybe a breed i dont know about yet that can fuck up animals like coons and foxes pls help

>>
>>1149952
You can get a very aggressive rooster but it would just die. A rooster will not win against a hungry fox or coon. You'd be better off making sure the chickens are contained sufficiently when you aren't around. You could get a bred fighting cock from down south, they are everywhere down there, but they may also bother your hens too and will most certainly die against most predators, or get seriously wounded. Give us a pic of your chicken set up, I'll see if I can figure out a cheap fix to keep coons out because that's your best bet right now.
>>1155419
I've had a cat that beat up a raccoon. Granted it's anecdotal, and that cat was a mean and big fucking bruiser. It never killed it, just spooked it away and the cat got injured in the process. I would never ever suggest getting a cat to keep raccoons away. If a cat will kill racoons it's liable to kill chickens too.

Previous thread: >>1154036
>Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon were Dutch students who disappeared on April 1, 2014, while hiking in Panama. After an extensive search, portions of their bodies were found a few months later although how they died could not be determined. The circumstances and aftermath of their disappearance have resulted in much speculation about the cause of death.

After reading >>1153799 → post on another thread I got curious and started searching for more info about the story since that at the time seems like it was something big and I had never heard of it before or seen it discussed here so I think it's worth to discuss it now. We can also have some talk about jungle survival if someone is interested or has significant knowledge.

Anyway, what do you think that happened to them?

Best of luck! Where do you hunt? Our stuff usually ends around mid-december(with 3 days near the end as a "special winter hunt").

Buddy I am right there with you.

Ontario publishes success rates, and for deer it hovers around 7% if I'm not mistaken, it's a game of odds, and even doing all the right things might not be enough.

We gotta keep trying, and remember even an unsuccessful hunt is a journey to be enjoyed

This archetypal discourse is literally what the ruling class counts on to maintain their control over the working class. way to go guys, you've memorized the script.
>>
>>1158198
no, what we actually count on is your desire to be part of the ruling class, the illusion that you can achieve that dream, and your natural tendency towards escalation of commitment.

also the fact that many of us have escaped the working class and you can see not only that it's possible but exactly how we did it. Though the first step is to understand that the proletariat is benefitted at least as much as it's exploited, and the system is rigged against stupid people so you may or may not actually succeed due to forces beyond your own control.

How do I start camping and backpacking like you guys? I'm a city slicker, camped a few times when I was a kid, recently felt the urge to distance myself from civilization little by little to become more human.
What gear is essential? Where do I start, do I set myself some sort of goal along the way? What dangerous stuff can happen?
