He is actually a wanted criminal though. Open container laws in Ontario and much of Canada expressly prohibit the carrying and consumption of "Step Two's" in public and unlicensed premises. Every Step Two he drinks on camera, in PUBLIC, is a fineable offence. And public intoxication may result in jail time and upto $5000 CAD in fines.

im bored as hell and i like vegetables, so im thinking of growing some onions or something. i also heard about hydroponics which are apparently pretty neat and allow for easier indoor farming. i have some questions about this stuff however and if you guys could answer them that would be great.

1. what plants can i grow with hydroponics
2. what equipment do i need for hydroponics
3. is it true you can use pool noodles for this
4. do i need to know anything about ph and nutrients to do this
5. where can i learn more about hydroponics technique and also about ph and nutrients if i have to
6. is this expensive
7. can i sell my vegetables here in southern cali
8. can i do this with two square feet of space (i currently have around that amount of space or more on a dresser right now)
>>
>>2721868
if you actually mean onions it would be tricky, if you mean onions it would be pretty hard.
basically hydroponics is used to grow very nutritiously cheap vegetables, think lettuce, spinach, snowpea. the stuff that doesnt need a ton of nutes
obviously you can grow whatever, but that will require more care and just works better in real soil
for equipment youd probably want to google it. its just a pump and a ~50l tub and a series of tubes with some growing medium at the end arranged in a way that a 3 minute youtube video will let you understand it enough to try it out.
pool noodles? the growing medium or the channel for nutes? either way i would say its not recommended, pvc pipe is cheaper for the pipes and rockwool is cheaper for a growing medium

ph and nutrient concentration is really easy. you get a probe for both (you can get combined ones, but getting two separate ones would most likely be cheaper). test every week or two, look for a ph of ~6.5 depending on what youre growing and a "conductivity" of about 2000millisieverts (how this one works is it measures how easy it is for electricity to pass between the probes, the more nutes dissolved the easier it is, so 2000millisieverts has more nutes than 1000millisieverts)
if the numbers arent right you either add ph up or down (that would literally be what the product is called most likely) or you add more nutrients. make sure you dont overadd anything because you cant take it out, you can measure as many times as you want per day when adding them
>expensive
only to start. as it goes as long as you arent using growlights its going to end up cheaper than soil outside
>sell vegetables

I don't know why I never thought about it but "rugged smartphones" are objectively better than a conventional smartphone, it's more or less what you expect from a smartphone at the end of the day. An intelligent machine that helps you overcome most situations, instead of simply having the glass broken due to falling out of the pants of a 6' tall person. I'm just preparing myself for what's coming, and I don't feel safe having a Samsung or Apple phone. A 400 euro/dollar "rugged" smartphone can hold battery for up to 1 week or more with little use in cases of emergency. Times are a bit complicated and difficult, so I appeal to you to start thinking about what you do in cases of emergency. The smartphone is the most important "item" that the average person brings and with some type of distraction is only capable of getting damaged, falling into mud, water, getting broken, etc.
What do you think of "rugged" smartphones and if you happen to have any. do you recommend them?

I use the Doogee S98 PRO. It's a rugged waterproof phone with both a night vision camera and a thermal imaging camera built in. Both are useful when out wild camping.
At a distance and in total darkness the thermal camera can instantly determine if some weird sounds are an approaching human, large animal, local farm dog come for some company or just rodents doing their thing.
The night vision camera is also good at finding your way when it's too dark to see with your own eyes.
The battery also lasts 4-5 days with out doing any annoying low power stuff.
>>
>>2716003
Put a case on your phone and keep it in your bag, possibly in a hardcase or with some padding or something. The average goyphone is already fairly dust and waterproof, you don't need to have your phone out and a battery bank will solve your battery life issue, provided that it isn't already solved by just turning off mobile data and other crap.
A rugged smartphone is just going to have its own issues because it's a niche product that is supposed to have high standards, except that people don't want to pay the full price that would entail, so it will necessarily compromise heavily.

Get a decently durable dumbphone that works with the cell tower tech in your area.
The only thing you should be using a smartphone for while /out/ is managing your schedule and bookings for lodging and transport.

Anyway, if you want to completely avoid people and you're willing to leave the city then Australia is great. Much lower population density than anywhere else on earth, and even in regions that aren't desert there are areas where there's almost nobody around. Along the Avon River, for example, there are basically no tracks and no people.

if that pic is the only kind of environment you've hiked in there's a lot of different places you could go to in Europe before moving on to America, since in the US you are generally much further away from civilization and therefore you need to be better equipped and prepared.

There's a nice little lake in the woods I go to sometimes that's part of a restaurant's property, but the faggot new owners have put big signs literally every 20 meters that outline the area around the lake in which you aren't allowed to picnic.

Don't do this. Loosing weight without developing good eating habits is almost pointless. You're just going to be gaining that weight back real soon anyway. On top of that, rapidly losing weight by fasting can also wreak havoc on some of your internal organs, potentially causing a lot of other health problems.

quarry diving is fun
>>
>>2718493
Depends on what you like.
enjoy underwaterlife? Go snorkel or scuba in a lake or river (get a good wet or drysuit).
Scuba diving in tropical water is easy so even if you only go once a year you're fine with a basic certification and you can rent your gear.
Freediving is also fun but don't be an idiot. Don't go into caves, practice depth training, don't hyperventilate and maybe get a buddy.
>>
>>2718493
I'm in the process of getting my Open Water cert, I think it's worth it if you like sealife. Equipment is expensive if you want to buy everything, you can contain the costs by buying the suit ("shoes" and hood included), a mask, fins and rent everything else from a diving center when you want to go underwater.
Know that you're not limited to seas/oceans, as other anons said you can go diving in lakes too, even though it's a different experience (especially for the decreased buoyancy).
Do you know anyone else with a cert/willing to get one? Diving, especially for amateurs, is way safer if you have a buddy.

Yes you can, but as I said in >>2721113 you need to adapt to it, it's kinda different from ocean/sea diving. Also, never go diving in mountain lakes if you've gone diving in the sea/ocean the day before, since there's a chance you get the bends by doing it.
