Just a friendly reminder that threads about weapons which do not pertain to their use in outdoor activities should be posted on /k/ instead. Thanks.

And now we get back to the >>1319530. I understand that large human societies need more rules to work, but we don't. Cops aren't above the community, they are part of it.
>large human societies need more rules to work, but we don't
You're acting like there's no law, but that's why I am arguing with you, from blade forums (translated by a finn, not the best but I don't speak spurdo):
>Text is mostly clear: possession of edged weapons, capable of being used to slash or stab and other items that can be used for harming others is prohibited in public places, unless they are needed for work or there is some other acceptable reason. "Public place" means street, sidewalk, park, marketplace, sports ground, buildings, offices, public transport, restaurant etc.

>So in short: no knives in urban and populated areas. Legally, it doesn't matter what type or what blade length even though many people are under the impression that there is a mention of acceptable blade length.

>Penalty for possession is normally a fine and confiscation of item

Now just because when you act like a gud boy they don't enforce it, doesn't mean they can't or won't if you do as much as slightly piss the side of the toilet. I would totally would agree with you if there was no law at all, it's not the case here.

>Yeah but no one cares
Until the day they do.
That dates back to the 70's-80's when every urban centre was filled with youth gangs armed with everything from knives and blackjacks to golf clubs and were just randomly robbing people and nobody could do anything unless they were caught from the spot. That way the authorities could even disarm them legally.
>Earlier there was a specific law about edged weapons, however that was replaced in 2003 with Public Order Law (my translation, originally Järjestyslaki).
Not according to this but you're the finn here so I will not argue.

I would say that in most countries, besides britgongistan and NY, you can probably carry whatever you please without getting in trouble because they're not actively stopping and frisking people, it doesn't mean you won't get fucked if for some reason they find you carrying an extendable baton or knuckledusters, for example.
>Earlier there was a specific law about edged weapons, however that was replaced in 2003 with Public Order Law (my translation, originally Järjestyslaki).
Laws get updated all the time.
>it doesn't mean you won't get fucked if for some reason they find you carrying an extendable baton or knuckledusters, for example.
Are you saying that you'll get fucked up by the police for doing something that isn't against the law, and if they can't they'll just make something up? Sounds pretty bad desu. I wouldn't want to live somewhere like that.

A young woman live streams her experience of being inside a plastic bubble at a Chinese water park. Pretty cool if you ask me

also: where can I find the /out/ bear vector graphic?
And this is /out/ how? I guess that's the closest you can get to being /out/ when you overpopulate your country with 1.3bn of mongoloids and destroy the nature with industry and rice fields
It's outdoor at a water park... And it looks fun. Way to escalate a picture of someone having fun

How hard would it be to sail across the ocean solo?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
how much time and money do you have?

if you have a few years to learn sailing, practice regularly, and crew someone else boat for the crossing, the Atlantic shouldn't be to much of a problem skill wise. same for the Pacific but ad a decade of practice. A boat to do the Pacific and keep you alive will also cost you $250,000-500,000 and maybe more once equipped with supplies for the trip.
people do it regularly so it's obviously not beyond the pale of possibility like morons in this thread are suggesting

His info may just be out of date. My grandfather gave me this held tight-ish to a decaying handle by a landscaping nail through the eye calling it a "re-handled Husqvarna". You can still see remains of the orange paint. If you see an old safety-orange axe at a yard sale or something it's definitely worth a look.
I almost did that too once, if my leg would have been 2 cm closer. I was splitting this massive log and the axe head slid off on the side. I made a huge ass cut on my boot but at least it didn't cut my leg.
i was learning to split logs wanted a bit of workout and help out my girls family. "father in law" sees i'm not really struggling enough he thinks he is clever. finds me the thickest gnarliest hardest wood in the pile with a huge fucking know. puts it down slyly so that i hit the knot. thinks i will struggle with it a lot and he can make fun of the city boy. so i'm like fuck this! channel my ki and fucking split the entire thick ass log right though the biggest fucking knot actually the thing exploded. biggest chunk hit him square in the shin. he says something about cutting smart jumping on half leg and blinking heavily. fun times.
In my experience, anything with a fibreglass handle is shit because in my line of work they break like plates at a greek wedding.

Either get a wooden handle with a nice head or weld the head onto a steel pipe and hope you die before you need your bones to live
destruction tests show wood breaks way more easily than fiberglass unless it's retarded heavy and thick hickory handle with impeccable grain alignment and choice.

Sooo, I plan a short trip next month - 3/4 days, walking ~9 h per day, no camping, sleeping in huts.

Terrain is small mountains and hills, with grass and stones. Windy weather and rain quite possible (and so mud on trails as well).

Was seriously thinking purchasing hiking sandals but never had any of these before, always using running or hiking shoes... not sure what to expect.

Any opinions?

Dude... gnarly. That does not sound like a healthy setup, have you considered leaving and striking out on your own?

Moreso than most other countries, the freest of which are still quite regulated, yes.
Continuous cruising licence makes it a national pastime
I think that's a euphemism for Wales or something.
I think you can have a shed of a certain size as permitted development on your woodland if you claim you store tools or camping equipment there. As long as it looks like a shed you could pretty much live in it but it would be extremely small. You could collect rainwater off the roof and I'm guessing you could build a well on the land if you claim it's for watering plants. You wouldn't be able to get electricity on the land though, you'd have to use a generator. No wifi either.
You don't.

General experience with hiking and camping in the beach/by the seashore. Is hiking barefoot a good idea?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Great experience here in California. Where shoes, because the sand gets hot. And you’re never truly alone on the greatest beaches in the world. Plenty of water because you can’t just set up a tent overnight outside designated camping areas. Oh and good luck getting a reservation for a camping spot.
Put two bottles together and heat one to collect the purified steam in the other to get freshwater from salt, mon ami
>I live in a shitty country: the post
Deet and mike a fire close to your sleeping pad, if you are sleeping without tent
Have you considered the affect of the salty sand on your tent and backpack? The salt will cause the zips to seize up a year or so down the track, unless you lubricate them immediately after your trip.

Sounds like some sort of rot or the tops were "done" Did you dig up the bulbs? Were the bulbs rotted? Were the cloves in the bulb tightly packed or starting to separated from the bulb?
Light, water, air, and fertilizer. Beyond that you need to research the individual plant species for finding out their special needs.

Since Tas is such a small place, can we organise some kind of semi-anonymous chatroom for /out/ists in the state? I'm buying 122 acres of rainforest there getting finalised now and i wouldnt mind meeting new people.

Definitely park up and do some of the bushwalks. Frenchmans Cap and the Wineglass Bay circuit are pretty easy and worth it.

Also spend some time on the west coast. It's super speccy and unlike any other part of Australia. Check out Strathgordon and Scott's Peak Dam. Drive your van from Corinna to Smithton on the western explorer track to acquaint yourself with the tarkine.

Pic from Frenchman's Cap last year.
