If Sharks are ambush predators. Why not just paint eyes on the back of wetsuits and the bottom of surfboards?
I would love to get into the water, but ain't going near that shit when you have essentially man eating swimming tigers everywhere.

worth a try, cats eye reflectors are cheap
The odds of me breaking your neck if I find you went from 0 out of 1 to 1 out of 1
I guess I'm of the opinion as to why not do it?
Sharks are not cats. You paint stripes on your wetsuit and board for sharks. You can even buy them, if you are to lazy to diy. Besides, sharks dont usually see humans as prey and just circle around a bit to check you out. Most of the rare bites are just exploratory, with the shark letting you go after realizing you dont taste good.
>Most of the rare bites are just exploratory, with the shark letting you go after realizing you dont taste good
Well yes, but the "exploratory" bite will still take multiple pounds of flesh off of your bones.

No one in Europe talks about catching big fish with your hands, and you can't just spear them either like in Rambo. Amy game is a hard hunt without modern technology such as firearms and traps, and not so abundant.

Finding food in the wild seems very hard.

So how did hunter gatherers survive in Europe before advanced tools and husbandry / agriculture?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Old Europe is also associated with insanely massive and complex astronomically aligned megaliths and pyramids. So you should take some common preconceptions about the period with a grain of salt. The peopling of Europe over just the last 14ky was varied and complex. Truly old European haplogroups (to 40kya at least, in Europe) have been identified (think Germanics, Nordics, Balkan and Black sea Slavic, and old pre-Italic Celtic and Italic in males lines and Finnish, Sardinian, Basque and Indo-European female lines), and there is controversy over this that will not see the light of day in the mainstream because of it. It is almost certain that there was some form of permaculture, animal husbandry, and agriculture prior to academically accepted dates limiting it to just the holocene. Most megalithic structures in Europe were already present prior to genetic input from neolithic farmers.
hunter-gatherer society is (usually) before pastoralist society, you silly goose!
as for the OP, primo-Euros survived the same way everyone else did at the time: follow the megafauna herds, and use pointy rocks to fuck them up
Europe before agriculture was a much different place. There were massive forests with loads of deer, elk, moose european bison, aurochs, boars, beavers and tons of birds. The waters were teeming with fish, including masses of salmon moving in to spawn and huge numbers of waterfowl.
Nuts, especially hazel were also an important staple that would be collected in fall and stored for the winter. Combine all of that with some mushrooms, fruit, edible greens and roots and you got plenty to eat.
As for how to catch the animals, the people back then were living in the wild and practicing tracking, throwing spears, rocks and hunting sticks or shooting bows and setting snares daily from a young age. They were much more skilled hunters than any modern european.
low population
>you can't just spear them
sure you can
Humans don't need spears or their bare hands to catch fish. The oldest fishing hook ever found is 20,000 years old, carved from snail shells and found on Okinawa And that's just the oldest we know of.
There's also nets. Humans have been making cordage even longer than hooks.

Hey, /Out/ I plan on hunting coyotes for the first time in the coming weeks. I have learned the basics: have a spotlighter with a light, ideally a red or green light, and get a rabbit caller and use it till they eventually show up. Anything I'm missing are first-time hunting predators and don't have any fancy shit, just a caller, a 12 gauge or a sks, no clue which one I'm going to run, and a decent spotlight that I and my buddy will use.

A farm should be wherever humans want to put one. If that bothers other animals, too bad.

Is this something different than Chinese hotpot? If not I do it at home pretty often. I would recommend it over a restaurant once you know ingredients you like.

But hotpot online then just go to Asian grocery get hotpot mix, meats, veg, noodles, etc then cook it up
It’s pretty good. There’s some restaurants in bigger cities. Otherwise make your own soup stock and put it on some sort of heater in the middle of a table. Assemble chopped veggies and thin cuts of meat or small meatballs. Throw them in the bubbling stock and cook it. If you can find one of those split pans you could have two different stocks. It’s pretty good on a cold day.

Aren't just basically then boiling meat in salty water? Does it taste good that way? Like get flavors in?

Can MSR filters thread on top of this?
I've been using a Hydroflask for years and it's a bit banged up but still going strong. I've tried other stuff but found that it either doesn't work as well at keeping things cold (anything plastic) or makes my water taste metallic, which was the case with the Klean Kanteen I had. I also really like the way Hydroflask does the opening, sounds autistic but I really like the bare polished/chromed metal where your lips touch it, feels more like drinking out of a glass.

Well I'm actually in a long relationship, two young kids, living in a shitholish city (65k inhabitants). Big for European standards, I guess not that much for American perspective.
I'm an agriculture technician, I kinda work on remote so it doesn't matter where I live.
My wife is hooked to the fucking city and I can't stand it. We have our parents close here so they are "helpful" for children stuff, this is her main argument. The second main argument of hers is muh job (kindergarten teacher).
I was living in a rural small town a long time ago and I need to flee again... This is a hole full of urban idiots invading everyrthing, retards with cycles, no one know where a tomate comes from, not to mention hunting and fishing... (hobbies I do myself).
Any of you anons got this issue? It's hard to think that everything could blow up for just this conflict... I just don't want to live in a fucking soviet apartment til I die. It feels anxious and I just survive thanks to outdoor stuff I do on weekends and holidays.

For my entire life, I thought that cave diving meant dicking around in LARGE underground caverns. Never once did I think these retards actually spent their entire time crawling through narrowing, spiky, twisting, potentially dead end passages with no room to turn around in. How the FUCK does that not trigger alarm bells in your mind? I understand extreme sports like climbing mountains or skiing down them or deep scuba dives or venturing through the Amazons but CAVE DIVING? FUCK THAT SHIT. I'm getting claustrophobia just thinking about the Jon Jones Nutty Putty Cave accident and this guy was smart enough to get into MEDICAL SCHOOL. How the shit does something like this happen?

Why are you so steamed over this particular guy, anon? The same thing has happened to 1,000 other families today due to car crashes and heart attacks.
People just get bent out of shape about covers, climbers, divers, etc. Go to the comments of any channel about tragedies in these activities and you'll see it. It's just a lack of perspective. People make it in and out of these situations and live full lives with these hobbies all the time, but they don't hear the success stories so they think it's basically suicide to do them.

Theyre probably a high value crop because they're extremely hard to grow
>Lavender, sage, thyme and many others are common high value crops and medicinal usage
That is not the main reason any of those crops are grown.
It really depends. A lot of money is in the know-how and the ability to do jobs at certain exact times. The main challenges are keeping your field weed free via moldboard plow and selective herbicide use, ensuring good plant establishment and harvesting at the correct time (less important if you harvest the leaves).

Ryegrass is also not mainly grown for lawns, yet some people make good money growing sod and selling turf rolls. If you don't have a lot of land and want to get a profit your options are either leasing it out or finding a niche.
