The house a gangster built

For the one-time gangster who built it, it is nothing less than “the eighth wonder of the world”. The less charitably disposed dismiss it as a glorified barn, fire hazard and eyesore. But on one thing everyone agrees: Nikolai Sutyagin’s home is certainly different. Dominating the skyline of Arkhangelsk, a city in Russia’s far north-west, it is believed to be the world’s tallest

The Cheapest Way To Feed Livestock — Even During Hard Times

14 Dog Breeds for Preppers

Over the last 15,000 years, our fates have intertwined, and we have managed to domesticate them into what we now call man’s best friend.

Remember that line Han Solo used on Luke Skywalker? “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” Oh, let’s not forget  the pulse-rifles used by Marines in Alien or Rick D

How To Easily Make Your Own Yeast, From Scratch

  Knowing how to replace the staples in the kitchen in some other way than a trip to the store is an important survival skill. One of those things is bread. The first step to making bread is taking the time to learn to bake, which, unfortunately, is becoming a lost art in and of itself.

Science confirms that people absorb energy from others

Did it ever happen to you, when you were with a person and you felt a bad vibe, as if the person was stealing your energy? Our bodies are like sponges, absorbing energy that is around us. This is exactly why there are people who feel uncomfortable when they are in a certain group with a mixture of energy and emotions. German biologist Olaf Kruse was in charge of the research, and its findings were reported on Natur

How to Make Delicious Biltong with 1 Year-Shelf Life

  People sometimes refer to biltong and beef jerky interchangeably, and admittedly, they have some similarities.  Usually, biltong is cured in larger slabs of meat, whereas jerky is cured in strips.  Biltong retains a little moisture, which some people think may shorten its shelf life, but we’ll return to that point at the end of the recipe. The other difference between jerky and biltong is that tradition
