    How to Grow Popcorn Shoots

    tell that to the little independent farmer that have been sued into foreclosure by big seed companies when their "patented" crops start showing up on local farms. I don't care if it's GMO no one should be able to patent a food source.

    really? What about wheat? Why do those mega bee ? keepers travel all over America.?

    How to Grow Popcorn Shoots

    i agree, the old adage of "it's great to eat but you got to know how to cook it" especially applies to plants, there are many plants that are poisonous when raw but perfectly safe to eat after you cook the poison out, cashews are one I know of? Another I'm told are acorns,you have to boil them in three changes of water before they are safe.

    I think he was talking about the shoots not the popping corn kernels.

    only popping corn (yep its a real thing) has the right amount of moisture for a successful pop. There are only a handful of commercial pop corn seeds available, there a many types of heirloom popping corns but they are usually expensive and hard to find.

    Coffee Table Made Form a Single 2x4

    Unfinished/rough sawed lumber is easy to find if you don't mind it being scrapped. Single use pallets, shippers even internal frame work of quality furniture and the mill, my brother the surgeon (tree that is) rough saws his own lumber but it's too green for me to use, l like kiln dried myself.

    don't need all that fancy stuff l made the table with only my 10" contractor table saw an a 1/2" chisel.....oh and twine lots of twine.

    absolutely loved your use of the wedge claims that is a technique we don't see very often these days. BTW here in America an unfinished 2 x 4 is really 2 x 4.

    how? Co2 is heavier than air even if that were true wouldn't we all smother first?

    never imagined that old yellow jack(ets) had a drinking problem, learn something new everyday.

    well basically you started out with getting the terminology correct, then griped a lot about your knots and ropes. I was just having a little fun (at your expense) about terminology. Sorry if you got upset.

    First we must get the terminology correct, it's not a rope its a line. If your knot doesn't hold then it wasn't a knot to begin with and if your "line" gets all messed up don't blame the "line" blame the plebe who doesn't know he's doing."The Knot Rule" A knot is easy to tie, easy to untie and won't slip or jam. Any thing else (as I've already stated) is not a knot to begin with.

    How to make a Mini Forge

    fire bricks bring back the memories, the guys at Home Depot don't even know what they are. I told them I wanted fire bricks to line the fire box of the BBQ I was building. They said why? I told them I don't want any bricks exploding on me, even the store manager thought I was crazy. Doesn't anyone know anything anymore?

  • Open Pad Locks and Combination Locks With A Soda Can

    nothing works like the "master key" a.k.a. bolt cutters.

    a cheap gimmick to open cheap locks, slaymaker had a lock that would open if you just yanked on it hard enough. I only use high security shank free padlocks and they're aonly a few dollars more.
