    How to Ranger Roll a T-Shirt

    If you're talking about recognizing one shirt, the same color as others in your bug-out bag, you could always roll them so that part of the design you seek is on the outside of the roll. As I said, crew members on a B-52 were allotted small cubbies in which to store all personal gear. In practice, my friend showed me how much space he could save using his method vs.folding 7 shirts flat, and then trying to compress that mass of fabric into a still smaller space (excluding as much air as possible). As far as making a shirt folding board,which folds shirts to accommodate your available drawer space is concerned, (and the time necessary to make it fit the finished product to your drawer, you'd obviously be better off following the method used by Dr. Sheldon Cooper on "The Big Bang T...

    How to Ranger Roll a T-Shirt

    I was taught this method in 1955 by a vacationing member of a US Strategic Air Command crew member. They would roll all clothing and fabric accessories (towels, sheets, pillow cases, etc.) in this manner, very tightly, in order to save space, and to keep things from coming un-rolled during any movement (of which there was often a great deal) in-flight. All crew duffels could then be packed into compartments tightly to save valuable space. This also helped to avoid subsequent shifting, which could change weight distribution, which was undesirable as well. Excellent 'Ible!

    How to Chop an Onion

    Oh! If you'll be going there in May, how about if I met you there, and we can share some DimSum? If you get there before me, make a mark on the sidewalk with a piece of chalk, and If I get there before you, I'll erase it! OK?

    How to Chop an Onion

    Many thanks for your comment. Very happy to hear that Mr. Yan is still with us, and giving us the benefit of his tremendous talent and expertise. If it were possible for me to visit SF again, I would love to enjoy a meal at his restaurant. Unfortunately, age and finances no longer permit. If you should happen to visit, please tell him I said "Hello!" Many thanks.

    How to Chop an Onion

    It's a hard-earned skill, and an art. Takes many years of earnest practice to survive with all your fingers intact, and no blood in the food. I'm not there yet, tho I use my re-cycled chinese cleaver whenever I can. You could try looking for vids on YouTube of Martin Yan. Famous Taiwanese chef. Seen him mince an onion, a BIG onion in seconds. The blink of an eye. Had a TV show years ago called "Yan Can Cook!" Good Luck, have fun...
