Babies have it because of their mothers shit diets 100% of the time. It isn't random and "doesn't jsut happen."

Probably 95% of adult women are stronger than me anon. I'd be quite fine with being on the strength level of a woman, it'd be a big improvement than where I am. I meant 40-60% weaker than a sedentary adult, not a fit adult - because remember, my muscles don't really grow.

This is /out/. It's important to know you can't freeze an apple because you might reasonably want to store your own produce.

It's much better to freeze your fruit stewed or chopped, and you'll only be able to use it for cooking because it will be mushy. You can't easily replicate the cold storage process supermarkets use and get the same lifetime.
>I'm very sorry for saying "frozen" instead of "months in cold storage". Please forgive me.
No. You are hereby sentenced to buy and plant at least one apple tree and learn how to store and preserve its fruit.

You need at least 2 apple trees to produce fruit, faggot.

You are generally right. It is really hard to live self sufficiently in Europe, though not impossible especially in the Balkans. And yeah overpopulation is an issue, but guess what? Second world nations are experiencing a mass exodus of people and villages in hard to access areas are dying and nature is taking over again. In a couple of decades it'll become wilder than Muttmerica where the population density will continuously rise. So yeah it is fucked, but in the near future it'll become a true paradise.

I want to literally LARP as Big Boss. As in, I want to do a several day backpacking trip while wearing milsurp fatigues and exclusively rationing on MREs; with everything else being the normal backpacking fare. What is/are best website(s) to get these items?

They still make everything that was in them. Which was kinda the point, make meals from prepackaged readily available stuff. Army biscuits, bouillon sachets, instant coffee packs, sugar packs, cigarettes, tinned beef loaf, a hard candy of some sort and chewing gum (preferably with xylitol).
They'll stop up your guts something fierce, but it'll keep you fed.
>>
>>2718878
Having it all prepackaged is part of the fun! I get what you're trying to say, though.
Besides, the description they used in Peace Walker literally referred to them as MREs.
>>
>>2718881
That's Konami being gay. Kojima knows better.
MRE's didn't exist till the 80s. Technically it's the "Meal, combat, individual ration"after Korea, but everyone still called them C-rations. Or K-rations for the smaller transportable kind.
That's alright though, MRE's are plenty good.

I liked his videos of course.

The meaning of the statement the guy said is completely rational and fine. The way he phrased it came off like a prick. Still, he has a right to sound like a prick if he wants.

Just for common courtesy he could have said all his points in a more polite way, but the guy is not polite, so whatever.

What drinks do you take with you when you go /out? What container do you use?

I normally carry 1 litre of water in a plastic bottle and a 8oz flask with single malt whiskey.

That's a lot of water Anon but normal for a full day's hike I suppose. A few years back I went on a hiking exped in Kenya with some friends. One of them drank over 9 litres of water within 4 hours and collapsed. Turns out he flushed his system out too quickly. Poor fucker took 2 days to recover. Was a good exped though.
>>
Aside from water, of course, I'll sometimes bring a small flask of whiskey, usually Irish, or Bourbon. I have a tendency to drink way too much in my normal day-to-day life, usually in an effort to disassociate, but after spending an entire day hiking 20 miles, talking to no one, and being surrounded by beauty, I feel that I don't really need it the same way. Just a nip or two to help warm up my appreciation of my surroundings, rather than a half liter to completely numb my senses.

in the north of england we call them a mattock as well.

Satisfying to blow the fuck through tree roots with one.

So I do live near a few decent sized lakes and plenty of small ones. I fish a lot and underwater stuff does appeal to me. Am I gonna drown or have a bad time if I just buy snorkeling gear and try it out or should I take a class?
>>
>>2718508
>Am I gonna drown
snorkel and goggles should be fine, not panicking is the most important, just stay calm.
also depends on how good a swimmer you are, your "lung capacity" will improve
honestly the most annoying part is getting a properly fitting wetsuit, atleast it was for me
>>
>>2718508
as >>2718512 said, you have to learn how to keep calm, lung capacity will improve over time, i dont like snorkels because near lakes we have pic rel and im afraid of accidentaly inhaling one (know they sting because i stepped on one and oh boy it hurts) so, snorkels on a beach works just fine if you want to see sealife, about a wetsuit, planning on buying one mostly because of the sun, the last time i managed to sunburn only my left leg.
>>
>>2718493
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.

I have destroyed my eyes by watching screens for a prolongated period of time.
I have astigmatism and myopia because i've been glued to the screen of a computer since 9, now i'm 24 now and everytime i go to the forest i have near my home i see shit. I also have chosen a degree in IT which i need to study and work in front of screens a lot which worsens the situation.
Is there a way to treat this besides using glasses (which i own but i don't use ever) and having a surgery? If i just stop for some years and reduce my exposure i will regain some of my vision? It's not that bad i just see blurry everywhere i go and i lost my night vision but i want to revert this somehow. I can't do /out/ without eyes bros-

I have friends up in Whitehorse who are park rangers. They absolutely love it, sledding around, jumping out of helicopters, monitoring the wildlife.

I got off work at 3pm and spent most of my evenings fishing after work. With 3 days off, I went backpackig almost every weekend. took several solo trips. Even finagled an extra day off a couple of times. The most consistent out/ I have ever had.

Most of my immediate co-workers were female- almost all college aged girls, some from europe. So there was just a lot sex to be had in the dorm.

Went backpacking with 3 women and fucked 2 of them on the trip. Also, had some luck with the tourists and got picked to be this girls first cock by her sister. that was amazing but couldnt get the sister to join us lol. Also, got invited back to a room by a MILF who rode me all night long,

Ate mushrooms and hiked in to a hot spring at midnight and went skinny dipping with more females

Slept outside under the stars one night and woke up with a huge elk herd all around me...which then proceeded to stampede when I stood up lol.

Got charged by a bull moose when I was back packing alone.
