Green Beret’s Ultralight Bug Out Bag with Gear Recommendations

Green Beret’s Ultralight Bug Out Bag with Gear Recommendations


Hey everybody, my name is Joshua Enyart
the Gray Bearded Green Beret, and I’m here to show you exactly what is
in my 18 pound bug-out bag. In any sort of a bug-out scenario, when your main
goal is to put distance in between yourself and whatever the incident is
that you’re running from, the key is to be lightweight and fast while still
being able to provide for all of your immediate needs: maintaining your core
body temperature, consuming water to stay hydrated, and consuming calories for
energy…and to be able to cover ground quickly without wearing yourself out. In
addition, you need to be able to take care of any life-threatening injuries
that you may have sustained during the incident, or since you’ve left the
incident. and you need to be able to effectively and efficiently navigate
from point A to point B. With this in mind, it’s important that you really
streamline your kit and only carry what’s absolutely necessary, as well as
allowing for some redundancy for some of the more important things, to allow for
contingencies that you didn’t see coming. While it may be tempting to carry as
many modern conveniences as you possibly can to make your life easier,
the simple fact is that the heavier this pack is the slower you’re going to move,
the more water you’re going to need to consume to stay hydrated, and the more
calories you’re going to burn and therefore more calories you need to
consume to keep your energy levels up. All three of those things go against
your main goal which is to put distance between you and whatever the incident is
as quickly as possible. You should never plan on carrying a bag that is is more
than 20% of your actual body weight. A better goal would be to have a bag
that’s 10% of your body weight, and it’ll make you that much faster, that
much more efficient, so long as you’re still able to provide for all your basic
needs. My bag weighs in at only 18 pounds, that’s a little less than 9% of my total
body weight. This allows me to move extremely fast and cover longer
distances without getting tired and still provides for all of my needs. The
bag starts with a good durable backpack, and like my clothing choices I prefer
natural colors that blend well in a woodland environment, but I don’t want a
true camouflage pattern that’s gonna stick out in an urban environment. I also
try to avoid clothing and equipment that has too much of a tactical look to it.
This is another thing that allows me to be a little more inconspicuous
regardless of where I find myself. I may plan on bugging out to the wilderness
but I may have to start my bug-out from an urban location, I may have to go
through an urban location, or I may have to come back into an urban location to
resupply at some point, so I don’t want anything that makes me stick out. Let’s
take a look inside: now as far as my immediate needs I need to maintain my
core body temperature and especially within the first you 24 hours or so
in the beginning of a bug-out scenario, when I’m not sure you know whether it’s
going to be a permissive or a non-permissive environment, I’m going to
be extremely careful, so fire is not going to be something that I’m going to
do if I don’t have to, so the primary function of my body’s thermoregulation,
maintaining my body’s core temperature, falls on my shelter kit. Every good
shelter kit consists of something to sleep under, something to sleep on,
something to sleep in, and some cordage to hold it all together.
For something to sleep under I prefer a military poncho, it takes the place of
both a rain jacket and a tarp so it’s multifunctional and when I’m moving I
could use this in place of a rain jacket. It’s large enough to protect me from the
rain and also drape over the back of my equipment and keep my equipment dry. It
also has these grommets that I can use to tie up simple and effective poncho
shelters when I’m stationary; and as far as this being camouflaged, I don’t
necessarily mind my shelter system being camouflaged because most of the time
this is going to be packed up in my bag and not seen. One of the benefits of
having this camouflage pattern is that when I when I do stop and I do put up a
shelter, this camouflage pattern offers me a little bit of concealement. When
it comes to something to sleep in, it’s hard to beat a military poncho liner for
something that’s lightweight and extremely packable. It also saves me time
when I go to pack up because I don’t have to worry about a stuff sack or any
cinch straps or anything. It can be crammed into all the voids in your pack
rather quickly. The majority of our body heat is lost to conduction from our
bodies being in direct contact with the ground. In my opinion, thermal mattresses
are a little too bulky and they catch on too many things. They stick out from the
sides of your pack a lot of times, they catch on a lot of things in the woods,
and for that reason I like to carry a simple bivy sack. This bivy sack can be
stuffed with leaves and debris to make what’s called a browse bed mattress to
sleep on and it’s also waterproof and windproof so if I don’t feel like
putting up a poncho shelter I can tuck myself inside here with my poncho liner
and use this as a standalone shelter and be fairly protected from the elements as
far as cordage goes I prefer TITAN SurvivorCord for a number of reasons
this is high-quality true milspec paracord that has the outer sheath and
it has the seven inner strands it has three additional strands one is a copper
utility wire one is a monofilament fishing line the other is a waxed jute
strand that I can fluff up and use for emergency tinder this prevents me from
having to carry an extra spool of wire for use in trapping and it also prevents
me from carrying an additional spool of fishing line for food procurement on top
of giving me an additional emergency tinder source for fire-starting true
milspec paracord has a breaking strength of 550 pounds in this Titan survivor
cord which is true milspec plus three strands has a breaking strength of 660
pounds so it’s going to hold whatever I need it to hold
lastly I carry six lightweight aluminum tent stakes this is something that’s
more of a convenience when I do finally settle in for the night to throw
up a shelter I want it to go up as quickly as possible although I can make
these in the field this is one more thing that consumes time and energy that
I can eliminate without adding much weight to my pack in most cases I’m
trying not to be found one of the quickest ways I can signal my location
is to have a roaring fire the flames and a smoke can be seen day or night and it
can be smelled from a long way off it’s not something I would I will likely need
in the beginning and not something I want unless I absolutely have to so I’ve
built the rest of my kit to ensure it isn’t an immediate need however I may
need it for thermal regulation I may need it to boil water may need it to
cook food etc so I need to be able to make it as quickly as possible
in all types of weather fire is an extremely critical skill over all so it
deserves some redundancy a lighter is the easiest method since it’s sure flame
and keep in mind that it’s not the same thing as sure fire I’ll normally keep the
lighter in my pocket so if I’m separated from my pack for some reason whether
that’s voluntarily or involuntarily I still have a chance of having an
ignition source the main problems with the lighter are that they’re pretty
challenging to use in the wind in the rain and that’s likely when you’re going
to need it the most the other problem is the fuel can leak out if the button is
being depressed in your bag or if it’s in your pocket or in your kit and if
they get wet you have to dry them out before using them also they’ve got a lot
of small moving parts that can break so I normally carry my lighter in an Exotac fireSLEEVE to prevent all of this. in an effort to conserve what little
resources I have I like to have a couple more durable and longer lasting
redundancies for those I choose a fresnel lens and a ferrocerium rod if
the Sun is out I can quickly start a fire with little effort using solar
techniques that take nothing away from my kit if that’s not possible I’ll
normally choose to use the ferrocerium rod a Ferro rod is a larger version of
the same sparking device that’s found within a lighter I can expect this
particular one and a half by six inch Ferro rod to start thousands upon
thousands of fires and last several years before wearing out while these
lighter may only provide hundreds of fires and
a year or so and that’s something that’s important to consider when you may not
be able to resupply I can normally source dry natural tender in any weather
condition to use for starting a fire but it’s worth carrying some man-made
emergency tinder to use for when dry material is scarce and we’re not
convenient to go look for I like these fire tabs ten of them take up very
little space and weigh next to nothing I can pull each tab apart to make three
fires each they also work really well with a lighter that’s out of fuel and
work great with the larger Ferro rod as well on top of emergency tinder I
generally like to carry at least three beeswax candles these are UCO
candles and in addition to being a good useful tool for getting a fire going
especially in wet weather I can also use this as kind of a low-key source of
light around my campfire that doesn’t put off as much light less likely to
give me away in the event I’m using this and if I had to I could boil water with
this it would just take a little while but each one of these candles burns for
12 hours so I’ve got 36 hours of light in every three pack the next challenge
in a bug-out scenario will be remaining hydrated normally a person needs one
half gallon about 64 ounces per day the need is much greater when the weather is
hot if the area you’re working in is especially dry or if there’s a lot of
physical exertion happening like you will be when you’re carrying a pack
great distances across difficult terrain under stress and possibly injured water
is heavy it weighs about eight pounds per gallon we’ve already discussed that
carrying extra weight will require more water consumption so for me I would
rather rely on resupplying at every opportunity then attempt to carry a full
day or a few days worth of water which could be several gallons I should also
mention that I’m not anywhere near the desert I don’t plan on going anywhere
near the desert so if you are you want to make you may want to carry more
containers of water from the start for a container I prefer a single walled
stainless steel 32 ounce water bottle single walled so that I can boil water
in it to disinfect if needed 32 ounces for a couple of reasons one that’s half
of my normal daily water requirement and it’s roughly one liter which is
what my water purification tablets are meant for the nesting cup allows me to
have a secondary container and also allows me to char material for fire if
needed again if you’re in a desert or extremely hot or dry weather environment
or freshwater sources or a little bit fewer and farther between in your area
than they are for where I’m planning on being I would highly recommend carrying
at least two containers of water instead of just one an additional 32 ounces
would only add two pounds to your total pack weight a cotton shemagh is useful
for a number of reasons but it’s part of my water kit to act as a pre-filter for
my water bottle to keep debris out when I’m filling it I can also wet it and
wrap it around the bottle and take advantage of evaporative cooling if the
water’s too hot to drink this would also keep your water and your self cool in a
hotter environment should you need to because I don’t want to start a fire
unless I have to I carry a small lightweight water filter I prefer the
Sawyer Mini it filters down to a 0.1 micron level and it’s rated for a
hundred thousand gallons if i were to drink two gallons a day which is way
above my requirement i could expect this filter to last me almost 137 years I can
use it in several different ways as well which we’ll get into later it also comes
with you know a couple of other accessories one of which being a large
syringe that you can use to flush this periodically that doubles as an
irrigation syringe for wounds so this is also part of my first-aid kit I also
carry twenty water purification tabs while my primary means would be to use
the water filter and when possible to boil to save resources there could be
situations where I could drop one of these tablets in 32 ounces of
contaminated water and let them do the work for me while I continue to move an
example that comes to mind is crossing stream during movement that I don’t have
time for this situation doesn’t allow me to stop to actually take the time to
filter it I get it fill the bottle as I cross and keep on moving these tablets
alone will give me about 10 days of my normal water requirement food is not
necessarily an immediate need however it is a metabolic need and you’re going to
be burning calories and an extremely high rate you can’t afford to completely
let yourself tank mentally or physically and you likely don’t have time to trap
fish or hunt right away I carry emergency rations in my bag to make sure
I have some calories to bring in that I don’t have to work for my goal is to
create distance as quickly as possible and that requires energy I prefer the
SOS emergency rations because they’re individually wrapped once you open the
main pack and they taste pretty good each pack has nine individually wrapped
bars that are about four hundred calories each for a total of 3600
calories so this is 3600 calories that I don’t have to work for that don’t take
any time I can eat these on the move and never stop once those run out and as
opportunities present themselves I want to be equipped with at least some basic
supplies to procure food that don’t add much weight and take up very little
space we had already talked about the monofilament fishing line and the
utility wire that are found in the survivor cord I also carry a ReadyMan
Wilderness Survival Card and this has hooks arrows points an improvised
fish frog spear point and some snare locks as well as a couple of little
tools so this coupled with the monofilament fishing line and the
utility wire that I can double over and use a snare wire inside the survivor
cord gives me a nice little kit to be able to fish or trap when the
opportunity presents itself it would no doubt be a highly dangerous event that
pushes you to bug out and well not all would involve gunfire or sharp metal or
explosions or what have you there are some that we can all like limp think of
that might if you become injured at the start of an incident or somewhere along
the way you need to be able to take care of it to the best of your ability I’d like to carry a kit that can handle
injuries sustained from things like gunshot wounds or lacerations to the
extremity torso or head I like the Black Scout Survival
Individual First Aid Kit, the BSS IFAK as the baseline and then I add a couple
of things to that based on my experience in my competency level this allows me to
take care of major bleeding sucking chest wounds tension pneumothorax manage
airways what have you any sort of trauma and that could be either for myself or
the people that are with me and of course I like to keep that somewhere
where I can get to it quickly you need to have the ability to navigate from
where you are to where you’re going as efficiently as possible
you’ve got very limited resources at your disposal so you need to make time
quickly hopefully you’re moving towards a well-stocked much safer location
having said that you may not be able to take the route you originally planned on
taking and you need to be able to adjust on the fly based on circumstances I’d
like to have a map of the entire area I expect to be going through along with
some waterproof paper and some mechanical pencils for recording
information and route planning as far as compasses I prefer the Suunto MC2 compass
because it’s got a sighting mirror that I can also use for signaling and it also
has a small magnifying lens that I can use as a backup fire-starting method it
also has built-in scales that I can use in place of a protractor or a coordinate
scale I also keep pace beads so that I can easily keep track of distances
traveled this is extremely important in the event I have to change routes on the
fly knowing what distance I had moved for the last known point before changing
direction allows me to better pinpoint where I might but there are a few tools
that I feel are absolutely essential for every bug-out bag so the first one being
a headlamp with extra batteries the second being a good full tang fixed
blade belt knife and the third being a multi-tool I
prefer the headlamps that you can put a physical filter on like a red lens
filter over a light that has it as a button option if I’m trying to sneak in
as concealed as possible without compromising my position the last thing
I want to do is hit the wrong button and flash a white light instead I also carry
three or four sets of extra batteries which should be more than enough to get
me where I’m going especially if I’m trying not to use light at all when I’m
traveling or when I’m working around camp at night and I prefer the
longer-lasting lithium style batteries for this option in my opinion and
experience the best fixed blade knife for the money is the Mora Carbon Garberg
it’s full tang maintains a good sharp edge has a good 90-degree spine has a
Scandi grind that’s easy to sharpen in the field and this thing can take a
beating, this thing will do everything you needed to do in the field and then
some and lastly my choice for the multi-tool would be a Leatherman as far
as the model I’m just looking for one that has pliers wire cutters has an awl
for stitching and repair has a good saw on it and in addition to all that I want
it to have a good blade so that I have a back of course depending on your
situation and your experience level and what you’ve planned for you may want to
add certain tactical gear and personal security items as needed it’s going to
increase the overall weight of your pack and slow you down but but it’s also
going to greatly enhance your security in an uncertain situation but that’s a
conversation for another day this particular go bag has been developed to
take care of all of your immediate needs and at only 18 pounds it won’t weigh you
down until next time stay safe keep prepping

Awesome Bugs That got Removed!

Awesome Bugs That got Removed!


I think it’s safe to say that Minecraft is famous for a number of different reasons. We’ve got the blocks We’ve got the infinitely generating world the fact that it’s completely open and completely sandbox You can do whatever you really fancy, but [also] there [are] the [bugs] Minecraft is a notoriously buggy game in fact It’s filled to the brim with bugs Nowadays is not quite as bad as it used to be but back in the olden times there used to be some ridiculous things going On in Minecraft and some of them were incredibly useful so today we’re going to take a look at some of the awesome bugs that have been removed from Minecraft and I Think it’s going to require all fun now before we begin. I just want to say a massive disclaimer right here I am fully aware of the fact [that] these things are bugs. They are not meant to be in the game Which is why Mojang removed them so please don’t start tweeting all the people that work at Mojang. Saying how [stupid] they [are] for removing certain bugs because well that really won’t get you anywhere These were awesome bugs But I’m also glad that they got removed. This first one got removed really quite recently in fact it got taken out in the Minecraft 1.7 [update] which rolled out just a couple weeks [ago], and then of course is the translocation piston bug now this sounds extremely complicated But essentially it meant that you got pulled through the piston if the piston arm extended through you Now this doesn’t sound particularly useful but it was actually perfect for massive travel ators that take you thousands of blocks or even Elevators which can take you to the top of the sky limit really very quickly I use the matter not on the hermit graph server And I’m a tiny bit upset I now have to redesign pretty much every elevator in my base Going back a little bit now to a slightly more old-school bug right here. This is a really good way [of] finding cave systems strongholds dungeons and all that good stuff All you had to do was place a piston then a tiny bit of redstone and then a redstone block or some form [of] Transparent object then cause that piston to extend up pushing the transplant object on top of your head And then suddenly you could see through the blocks and see all [of] the cave systems around you now This is extremely handy if you wanted to find that sort of thing But most importantly if you just bought yourself a mob spawner, [and] you really wanted to light up the surrounding caves This was a good way of locating them unfortunately this got removed Relatively recently and now on to one of the most famous bugs in all of Minecraft [I] personally remember when mojang which [find] their absolute hardest to patch this every single week [they] would come up with an update and then on the day [of] the update someone would create a new version of this there was About [ten] times faster and seemed to produce even more sad that of course I am talking about the sand generator here now the way these things work basically Depended on the fact that sand is gravity affected and pistons can push and pull blocks and that meant that it caused some timing issues And things with the way that Minecraft was coded which essentially meant the you Duplicated the sand and by the end of this when we had reached the end of the development cycle of sand generators We got some absolutely ridiculous contraptions I mean these things were enormous, ly fast producing thousands upon thousands of sand a minute You could get pretty much an entire desert with just a flick of a lever it was incredible But obviously a little bit overpowered as you guys know Redstone is sort of my thing I personally love redstone and throughout the entire history of Minecraft [you’ve] always needed to create redstone lines between components as obviously we want to connect up [to] Redstone contraptions You need a redstone line connecting them but at some point in Minecraft. There was a wireless redstone bug now This is an obvious thing [this] was not a component And it wasn’t an obvious bug either in fact it was really very strange and whoever discovered it I have to tip my hat to you because I don’t know what you were doing or what you were trying [to] create But it really was very impressive Since you had a boat on top of an ironbound [of] a sticky piston [there] were bounced up and down and if you looked at a certain type [of] iron bar the boat would drop down onto the pressure Plate giving a redstone output and if you looked at a different type of iron bar then the boat would pop up Deactivating the pressure plate mean you didn’t have a redstone output It was really very strange, but also read quite cool [never] fun story my first ever experience with redstone Was to build one of these I needed a large number of powered rails and the best way to get lots of powered rails was to create a powered rail Duplicator now, this is getting extremely old now I’m talking before Minecraft was originally released But what you had to do was put some powered rails on the faces of sticky pistons and then connect them into some other powered Rails and spam those [pistons], and then suddenly powered rails would start appearing out of nowhere It was amazing and also a lot cheaper than going out and finding all the gold because there was no efficiency tools back then so That will take ages this one’s a bit of a strange case because this bug was recently removed a couple months ago And now has been put back Into the game and made a lot simpler which I’d say is a pretty good thing and that [is] the item elevator Originally had to run items in through a water source Then into the side of a fence post and that will push the items up into the water stream Which was really very strange now You just have to place a drop of facing upwards into a bunch of blocks, and that’s it You just connect it up into a redstone clock that makes quite a life easier I don’t know if I’d [call] this one a bug or an intent feature that eventually got removed because it was just so have apparel And that is the Minecraft 1.7 observer blog now when these things were first introduced in the snapshots They were completely bonkers They would attacked updates in air blocks which meant you could chain observer blocks together? round Corners upWards downwards sideways Whatever you really fancied and all of these change would activate Instantly they could do everything instantly, so it’s like instant redstone, and it completely changed the way that everyone did redstone I pumped out a bunch of redstone contraptions everyone else was making Redstone contraptions But then mojang saw took a minute and thought hmM actually These things are a little bit confusing and also they don’t make too much sense especially for those who are new to redstone so then they changed them up and Basically made them a tiny bit more a lot before we had crazy pissed Elevators slime block Elevators Minecart elevators, and all that sort of thing we had something else they didn’t involve any redstone It didn’t involve any pistons or anything like that. [that] was at the boat elevator All you had to do was place one water source [right] the way up in the sky wherever you wanted to go and that would fall down to the ground Preferably into the water and then you would travel along with your boat and because of the way that the boats were coded they would Always float to the surface of the water which means as soon as you’d hit this water Your boats would begin to travel upwards and you would speed up Through this water source until you reach the top [and] then you would sort of take off into the sky Bobbing up onto the surface it would look hilarious and also work extremely well Now if there’s any bugs that I’m a little bit sad about and any bugs. I sort of [miss] in the game I definitely say this is the one because It’s probably one of my personal Favorites especially [because] of how [old] is when this bug was actually active in the game And I was trying my best to make redstone contraptions around it. I used to absolutely hate it now [I] used to call it the armageddon piston bug and essentially meant that the piston arm would travel through his own piston arm And then the piston would break so you would have both textures displaying at exactly the same time the retracted piston and also the extended piston And it would look really very strange now this would happen if you sent two pulses through the piston [too] quickly in a certain way And when I was starting out on my [Youtube] channel when I was first creating my early redstone contraptions it seemed to happen every couple seconds And it used to drive me around the bend one good way to locate diamonds caves dungeons And that sort of thing was to make use of chunk errors though. This was a rendering error in Minecraft You’d be walking along adventuring through the Minecraft terrain And then suddenly there’d be a massive hole 16 by 16 right the way through to the void now That’s basically where Minecraft decided not to render that chunk. It wasn’t displaying it the trunk was there I mean all of the blocks were in place But you just couldn’t see them and [the] good thing is is that you can actually peep over the edge and take a look down underneath Into the side of the cliff face and see where all of the diamonds [and] where all of the caves were it was really useful But it did use to get quite annoying because well. They’d be all over the place. I’ll be honest There’s a chance that this bug is still in the game, and it hasn’t been removed I’m not a hundred percent certain yet, but [I] have found a few examples of it on the hermit Craft Server however [I] have tried it in a single-Player world with thousands upon thousands of hoppers, and I haven’t been able to recreate it but that is the Hopper Chunk border duplication bug What you do is you place two hoppers runnin into one another on the edge of a junk border then you place an item? Inside one of the hoppers and that item will bounce back and forth between the hoppers Then what we have to do is travel miles off into the distance to unload all [of] the chunks then you come back in reloading all of the chunks and in theory Occasionally the item inside the hoppers will be duplicated, but as I say I don’t know if it really works currently But it definitely used to work back in the day this one is probably the only physical bug in today’s video But that is the redstone [buck] the redstone buck was introduced in the minecraft 2.0 Update and every time you powered some redstone a bug would be produced which meant that if you had gigantic Redstone say hit sir I did you get thousands upon thousands of these pouring out of the circuits really very quickly of course this could be Manipulated to [create] some pretty ridiculous XP films using redstone clocks and large planes of Redstone Which would also very quickly crash computers. [I] actually really like this thing is almost a shame [there] was an april fool They this one is going to be a little bit tricky to explain But I’m going to try my [best] to cover it for you So what you have to do is you had to get yourself a splash potion of harming or some form of splash potion that would kill a large number of mobs then you would throw that splash potion quickly switch over to a looting 3 sword and when all of the mobs died You would get the looting 3 effect even though you haven’t used the salt now This was really useful for things like Xp farms because if you had a bunch of skeletons in front of you You can get much more bones than you were expecting and it was really good for getting large numbers of resources now I’m not 100% certain if this is still in the game But I’m fairly certain it got bad so we have it guys that runs up [to] this video on the awesome bugs that have been removed from [Minecraft] and oh Oh, there’s still there’s one more on the list I think [it] says oh Yeah, hera, brian. Yeah they keep They keep removing hera Brian Hera Brian has apparently been removed in the latest version of [Minecraft] We are playing in Minecraft 1.7. So he should now be gone

See How Termites Inspired a Building That Can Cool Itself | Decoder


In 1991, architect Mick Pearce had a
problem. An investment group in Harare, Zimbabwe hired him to design the largest
office and retail building in the country. But they didn’t want to pay for
the expensive air conditioning needed to cool such a large building. So that left
Pearce with a seemingly impossible challenge: How do you design a building
that cools itself? This is a termite mound. Millions of termites live inside these structures, some of which stretch an astonishing 30
feet high. Although these termite skyscrapers may
look solid from the outside, they are actually covered in tiny holes that
allow air to pass through freely. Like a giant lung, the structure inhales and exhales as temperatures rise and fall throughout the day. This termite ventilation inspired Pearce to use an approach known as biomimicry, imitating the ingenuity found in nature
to solve human problems. Meet the Eastgate Centre. The building is made from concrete slabs and brick. Just like the soil inside a termite mound,
these materials have a high “thermal mass”— which means they can absorb a lot of heat without really changing temperature. The exterior of the building is prickly like a cactus. By increasing the amount of surface area,
heat loss is improved at night, while heat gain is reduced during the day. Inside the building, low-power fans
pull in cool night air from outside and disperse it throughout the seven floors. The concrete blocks absorb the cold, insulating
the building and chilling the circulating air. When the morning comes and temperatures rise,
warm air is vented up through the ceiling and released by the chimneys. Thanks to this innovative design, temperatures inside
stay at a comfortable 82 degrees during the day and 57 degrees at night. Not to mention, it uses up to 35 percent less energy
than similar buildings in Zimbabwe. Since opening its doors in 1996, Mick Pearce’s 90% natural climate control system has made the Eastgate Centre a global landmark for sustainability. So, we must ask ourselves: if an architect could design a self cooling building with termite inspired climate control, what other innovations can Mother Nature
inspire if we just paid closer attention?

How To Make CLAY from DIRT

How To Make CLAY from DIRT


this video was sponsored by Casper.com, the company that made my mattress. The one that my wife and I have been using for the last two and a half years I’ve put a link down in the description so you can get one of these super comfortable mattresses for yourself And if you check out what the promo code the king of random you’ll slash another fifty dollars off the price Hey, what’s up guys! welcome back to the lab! I’ve got a very exciting DIY project for you today, Because I’m going to show you how to dig down into the depths of the earth and make your own clay. Now this project here was inspired a couple of years ago when I stumbled across a channel called Primitive Technology. all about a guy in Australia who goes out into the woods and uses nothing But the materials around him to build cool things like houses Looms and even metal foundries and the basis for all of his experiments involved clay so a couple years ago This really got me thinking if we were stranded out in the middle of nowhere. What exactly would it Take to make some good clay that’s exactly what we’re exploring in this video today Now to gather up the materials for this experiment today I just went down to the local River and walk down beside the riverbed I found a nice little place under the bridge where there’s a lot of traffic Took a second to enjoy the scenery and then started digging down into the dirt as close to the water as I felt comfortable now the reason I went for dirt by the Riverbed is because clay is sedimentary which means it flows down to the lowest point and Well, I actually have extracted clay from dirt from my backyard I find It’s much better down by the river so take a trip down your local river grab some dirt And you want to be looking for the dirt that when you squish it kind of has that plastic you feel it sticks together Into one big clump, you can find something like that. You’re well on your way to making clay so here We are guys we’ve got a nice little amount of dirt here and the first thing we notice about it Is it’s not very clean. There’s all kinds of rocks There’s sand there’s little sticks and twigs this stuff is very very dirty and even though you can squish it and turn it into different shapes It’s not super clean you can see all the organics and those large chunks of rocks sticking through So to actually extract the clay out of this dirty mixture we’re going to need to put it through a very very simple process and the only thing is we’re going to make that happen or A couple of different containers and a little bit of water So quick update guys you can see that I just added a little bit of water to this mixture And I use my glove just reach down there and stir it around What we’re actually doing is we’re breaking up all the different pieces in the dirt itself. We’ve got rocks We’ve got sand we’ve got clay we’ve got organic materials and what happens is as we mix it with water they separate their different layers Now over time the clay and send all settle to the bottom so we want to do is stir this vigorously I’ll get everything suspended and then give it about five Seconds to settle and then transfer all the liquid into a separate container watch what happens when I do Sweet now if we stop pouring right here You can see most of the heavy stuff is left. Behind if we look down the bucket. You can see gravel rocks everything That’s heavy
you can even see a bit of sand left here on the bottom of the bucket so we can essentially take this stuff and we Can throw it away because we’re not going to need these big rocks for after now is all the stuff That’s contained in this liquid here now the second pass is Gonna be a little bit different We need something like a strainer you could use your shirt you can use your socks or in this case I’m just going to use a strainer for convenience We’re going to go ahead and clean out this container Then we’re gonna pour all this liquid through the strainer back into it and hopefully that will remove most of the organic material Almost looks like concrete gravel very cool So I’ve washed and clean out this way bucket We got our little strainer here as I said you can use your shirt or any kind of cloth material We’re just trying to strain out those organics, but remember that before we pour this solution through the strainer It’s very important to stir it up and agitate it so all those clay particles resuspend in the water once again So you can see once we strained everything out We’ve got quite a bit of organic material left behind we’ve got sticks leaves twigs anything that what’s floating to the surface and if you want to be extra cautious You can go ahead and clean out your strainer and filter it one more time to catch anything you might miss oh Starting to look a little like chocolate milk What’s interesting about this is every time we pour it back and forth you notice there’s some kind of a standing residue left behind that’s because the sand is actually heavier than the clay and sinks down to the bottom is reporting it, so theoretically now if we take two containers And we simply transfer it back and forth and clean the stand out every time Eventually most of that sand is going to be reduced. We’re going to have a very fine clay. So here. We are guys What we’ve got now is a bucket full of clay water essentially they had a little bit of sand we have Used gravity and density of the materials inside to filter out the rocks We’ve used a strainer to filter off most of the organic materials and so now we just have a solution of clay suspended in water And the longer we let this sit the more of that sand and clay will drop down to the bottom now We don’t want the clay to actually settle down yet We want to extract that first so I’m going to do now is use these two containers to cycle them back and forth and extract the layers of Sand each time we do and While they’re doing that it’s a good time to drop down to the description and click the link to check out Castro mattresses my wife And I have been using our cast for mattress for over 2 and a half years now and to date It is still the most comfortable mattress We’ve ever used so here’s the deal while dirt rocks and clay are pretty cool to play with they’re not super comfortable to sleep on and if you Do some quick math you’ll realize about a third of your life is spent in bed sleeping Some people even more than that so treat your body right and get your sleep in comfort It’s a very worthy investment Casper is here to help making beautiful and comfortable mattresses Even more affordable for you when you click the link in the description and use the promo code the king of random You’ll get another $50 off And if you still need a little bit more convincing check this out buying a castro mattress is completely risk-free you literally buy the mattress online they deliver it to your house you get to try it for a hundred days to see if it’s Worth your money if you don’t end up liking it they’ll send someone to come pick it up And they’ll refund all your money Just like that of course chances are you’re going to love it And if you live in the us or Canada they’ll ship it to your house for free It shows up at your door in a very small box that’ll make you wonder how they even got it in there I just stripped all the sheets off the bed, so you can see after two and a half years This is still the mattress that we’re using it is a really comfortable mattress It’s very enjoyable to sleep on it’s firm But soft enough to get good sleep and for some reason whenever I sleep at somebody else’s house or go to a hotel I seem To get back aches and a little bit of a headache that never happens with my casper mattress I also like to sleep a bit cooler at night I don’t like to sleep in a sweat And this mattress is breathable which helps prevent that from happening Kasper understands the importance of really loving your mattress before you fully commit to it and by using the internet they cut out the expensive retailers
and pass the savings on to you their in-house team of engineers have spent thousands of hours developing the casper to the point where it’s Considered obsessively engineered, and that’s paid off because after over 25,000 reviews it’s got a rating of 4.9 stars It’s quickly becoming the inTernet’s favorite mattress casper’s design developed and assembled in the Usa and uses a combination of supportive memory foam that give it just the right sink in just the Right Bounce plus It’s breathable and helps regulate your temperature throughout the night so in summary you get a luxury mattress and an extremely fair price delivered Right to your door so you can sleep on it for a hundred nights So make sure you absolutely love it, and if you don’t they’ll come pick it up and give you all your money back So treat your body right and invest in a casper mattress today You’ve got nothing to lose and a lifetime of better sleeps to gain the link is in the description and with that said let’s get back to making our clay there we have a guys I poured this back and forth about four times taking out a little bit of fine sand each time we Do now we can continue this process almost indefinitely We’re just at this point getting out some of that really fine silt, but right here We have relatively clear relatively fine Clay water and the only thing we really need to do with this now is set it down on a counter where it won’t be Disturbed for about an hour to give the layers a chance to separate just for fun We had some leftover water, so I transfer that into another container I’m just going to set these down right here, so we can watch them over a period of time and see how they settle Quick update guys we’ve let this sit for about five hours now. You can see the clay is so fine That’s actually taking quite a bit of time for the water to rise up even to this level now if we let this sit for Maybe a day or so, I’m sure that clay would compact even more we have more water on top however There’s a quicker way to extract water than that now the first thing We need to do is get this water that we have on top off of the top and there’s a few ways we can do That we can simply tip it over and pour it out or we can use something like a siphon to try and suck it out Now either option is going to have its pros and it’s cons But ultimately all we want to do is make sure we get this clay here without any of this stuff here So first things first, I’m just going to take this tall glass here We’re going to just tip this over very slowly very carefully to get as much of that water off the top as we can I’m just going to pour off the top layer that clay as well just to extract most of that water And we’ll call that right there pretty good Most of that is going to be really fine clay. We can see it’s very very moist So we need to clean that up with a towel Now the second method of extracting this water is siphoning it we can use this to suck the fluid up over here But before it hits our mouth we can dump it over here and gravity will suck it everything out very similar to a vacuum cleaner now to get even more of the moisture out of our clay we want to use something like a towel or a shirt something that’s Very tight-knit and has a lot of fibers in this case. I’m going to take this towel I’m going to double it over on itself we almost want to make a piece of fabric that the clay will not go through we want all of it to stay inside if Possible so got a little makeshift filter here We’re going to pour these in hopefully It’s tight enough that will hold the clay inside so we can tie it up into a little ball we can hang it up and let the Atmosphere suck the moisture out of it for a few hours until we’re just left with the clay itself You can see this towel once It’s sucked down but we don’t want it to and hopefully this is thick enough that it’s not actually going to Go through the towel itself. We want to be able to pick this up and to be very little if anything Coming through the bottom of the bucket we want it to all stand side so it’s looking pretty good so far might even want to clamp that down obviously in the Wild in nature you wouldn’t have clamps, but you can improvise us something else We just don’t want the towel to actually suck down into the bucket here. We go with the round two Starting to get heavy now Beautiful there we go. There’s all our clay in our towel And we’re just going to fold this up tie it off and hang it for a bit Now if everything goes well, we want to take all the edges of this towel fold them all together And make a nice little ball of liquid look. I just fill in. It’s okay. We can save it There we go. It’s looking very good very good All right, so we got our slipknot set and now all I have to do is shake it. Shake it. Shake. Shake it shake it Doesn’t have to be clean this has to be functional There, what do you think? All right, so this is pretty much what we’re going for guys We got our clay wrapped up inside the towel, and you can see some moisture dripping off But a lot of that is relatively clean water It doesn’t have the clay in it because the clay is being trapped by the fibers on the inside of cloth Now if we just let this hang out for a couple of hours most that moisture is going to come out We should be left with a nice ball of clay Alright guys. We are back It’s been about an hour now since we took our bag outside and let it hang off of the railing now in the interest of time I actually did squeeze the bag a little bit to help encourage a little bit of that moisture to come out a little bit quicker In doing so I sacrificed a little bit of the clay itself, but I don’t think that’s going to jeopardize the proof-of-concept so here we are with our towel with most of the water squeezed out of it if we open up something now and take a Look inside You can see a lot of the clay on the upper Edges has started to harden up And it’s very plastic the stuff on the inside though is still really liquidy. It’s kind of like runny Diarrhea if we left this out exposed to the air eventually that moisture would evaporate and the clay would become hard However, there is a way. We can speed things up There’s a way we can cheat and all we need is a little bit of paper towel All we’re going to do is rip off a few sheets of paper towel fold it in half I’m going to stick it down on The table like this then we’re going to scoop up our clay put it down the center of our paper towel And we’re basically just going to flatten it out The paper towel is going to absorb a lot of the moisture out of the clay and as soon as it reaches the consistency We’re looking for we can peel off the paper towel and wrap our clay in Saran wrap or plastic bag for later use now again If you don’t have a paper towel all you have to do is just let this sit out in the open air a little bit Longer and let it evaporate on its own, but we’re just using this technique to speed the process up a bit I’m just going to take a couple more sheets of paper towel Lay them over top and help flatten it out from the top side To help absorb the moisture a little bit quicker from up here as well, and now as easy as that Oh, wow. I love this part peel this back and take a look at this we have some very nice beautiful ready-to-Use clay it just sealed off and Mold in the palm of your hand that Is amazing this stuff is very moldable. It’s very easy to work with very plastic You could use this to make a little bowl a little pot a little dish pretty much anything you want if you have a countertop With a smooth surface you can go ahead and throw it down in the countertop and just work it around a little bit Help work out any of the bubbles the cracks the crevices and things of that nature Now if your clay gets a little bit, too dry you can add a little bit more water in to work it around to make a little more plastic in the other hand if it’s too wet you can just let it stand out in the open air for a couple hours to let it evaporate and Harden up by itself now before we did this experiment today? I went down to the river and I got a lot more of this river mud And I let it stand in Five-gallon buckets over a period of three days And I turned it into this now this piece of clay I worked back and forth a little bit more I got more of the sand out and I let it sit overnight Until all the water had come to the top made a little bit easier to work with and you can feel If you just run your finger along the side of this it almost feels rubbery It’s got a very plastic texture to it if we carve into it with something like a fork or a spoon You can see how it just peels away now You can work this you can roll it you can use it to make pottery dishes pretty much anything you want if you were to fire this in an oven or a kiln the right temperature you turn it into Pottery like a Terracotta planter pot and possibly even ceramic So here you have it guys we have successfully turned river mud into blocks of clay that we can now use turn into pottery Earthenware and possibly fire into ceramic all things we’re going to try to do in future project videos Let’s quickly Recap. How we got here We started this project this morning by going down to the river and pulling dirt and rocks straight out of the Riverbank? We brought the dirt home We stuck it in a bucket of water, and we swirled it around until everything was broken up Then we let it sit for a few seconds and poured all that dirty water into a second container our first Observation was that everything heavy was left behind all the rocks the pebbles and most of the heavy sand next we grabbed a strainer We poured all the water through that to help pull off any organic materials like leaves sticks or anything floating on the top Which in a survival situation would also work with a piece of clothing like your shirt? We transferred the water back and forth a few times Trying to get out as much of the sentence we could and we’re left with a very dirty grey water, which we eventually Transferred into a towel Pulled up at all four ends to form a ball then tied off with a piece of string and let hang on the railing we Let it sit outside for about an hour then we squeeze the bag to help get rid of any excess moisture where we brought inside Open up the towel and saw that we had a very slushy clay We transferred that clay to a paper towel to absorb even more moisture Scraped it off and ended up with this a nice ball of clay that we can turn into anything we want So there you have it guys that is how you go down to the river take the mud and turn it into a fairly Processed clay at home what we end up doing with this stuff is completely up to you So let me know what you want to see down in the comments below. Thanks for joining us for this experiment today We’ll be looking for you the next one Doc you then? Okay, guys a quick reminder. There’s a link down in the description right now to get yourself a casper mattress luxury sleeping experience with a hundred a free trial when you go to checkout Remember use the promo code the king of random to get $50 off the mattress of your choice. Good night sleep tight You can see right out of towel. Oh there It makes a pretty nice moldable clay as easy as that it really does look like chocolate milk And clay is not really that bad for your diet. No. It’s really really bad. Don’t drink it you can put it on your face

‘Zombie’ Parasite Takes Over Insects Through Mind Control | National Geographic


Fungi and slime molds race to decompose dead matter on the forest floor. Many spread by releasing spores up to thirty thousand a second. (scary music) If just one of these spores lands in the right place, and takes root, it can colonize a whole new area. (scary music) But not all fungi feed on the dead. (scary music) Days ago, a spore landed on this ant, now she’s acting strange. A network of roots has
infiltrated her muscles. Her body has been taken over by cordyceps, a parasitic fungus. It floods her brain with chemicals, drugging her, compelling her to head where conditions are perfect. (scary music) Just the right amount of light. Just the right amount of humidity for the parasite growing inside. It forces her to clamp
down in a death bite. And cordyceps reveals
it’s gruesome nature. (scary music) After three weeks of growth, cordyceps can release its own spores. Infecting more ants. Releasing more spores. Infecting more ants. Releasing more spores. Infecting more ants. Infecting more ants. More ants. More ants. More ants. (scary music) Cordyceps can wipe out
entire ant colonies. But more than just ants are at risk. (scary music) There are over six hundred species of cordyceps
spread across the world. Most are found in jungles where they prey on a
whole host of victims. (scary music)

Giant piles of poo out here um lol Next to the river For my amusement I thought I would just kick em over and see if anything was actually hiding underneath them and to my surprise there was Lets see if we can get him here Right there, Little Scorpion Yeah you can see he’s not to big but considering he was hiding underneath a piece of poo Ya know, I never seen that before Haha The search is on Gotta get back to finding other things Bigger things, Smaller poo tho I hope
