    Random This Shit Is KEWL Thread

    SCOTTeVEST clothes are fucking cool! I've always had a big ole hardon for well organized pockets/pouches in my gear.

    Too bad they're so fucking expensive. Sigh.







    I used to 'solve' this need by using multiple smaller pouches and bags within larger unorganizable bags/duffels and by using multiple tiny/small wallets and just having a keys pouch, coin pouch, etc.

    "Used to". I still do to some extent, but having a nice set of pockets on my backpack (one well organized one and several small ones dotted about) has obviated most of my "several small bags in a larger bag" thing.

    In keeping with the pouches/pockets thing, I met this artist at last fall's Tonasket Barter Faire, and fell in love with the "slinger belt" style and just had to have one (mine looks pretty close to this one). He's a really awesome artist and spectacularly cool guy; I wanted one of the straps lengthened so I could put one of my damascus belt knives on it, and the other altered slightly, and he had did the alterations/specifications without complaint, and didn't charge me. Really cool fellow, and his handwork is worth the price, I've heard from other folks that if I ever have a problem or need a repair to simply bring it back to him. The larger pouch also has a hidden separate zipper-pouch on the back.

    Eh, too artsy-fartsy for my taste.

    1) I'm not a Floridian, and 2) Floridians freeze to death at room temperature.

    I'd like to get the cargo pants the camp shirt. They look handy and comfortable.

    indeed!
    I just bought 6 pairs of Dickies for the price of one of their slacks. Fucking hell... but I will note the Dickies have fuck-all for pocket space.

    Well, I guess if you like mass-produced, made-in-China stuff where each one looks exactly the same as everybody else's, then that's what floats your boat. And Salvador's (the guy who owns Gato Montes) handmade stuff isn't "artsy-fartsy", it's absolutely functional, well-made, and primitive/rustic with each piece being unique. I know for myself, I'd much rather support a local (ish) artisan making quality stuff than add to China's economy, given the choice.

    Dude. I hate to break it to you, but after at least a couple decades there, you're kinda a Floridian-via-naturalization.

    No... I just prefer a more utilitarian look. I'm a brutalist/minimalist aesthetic kinda guy.

    False. I am a noble Northern transplant withering in this oppressively humid tropical climate. It shall be the death of me and the end of my line.

    Leather's much more utilitarian than polyester, y'know.

    I just lost a day watching a bunch of his older videos, but these two were the ones that got me hooked on Cody's Lab.

    (Didn't we have a Rando Science Stuff sort of thread? Or is that just wishful thinking?)

    Anyhow, while a couple years old and not breaking news, this was still cool new news to me.

    'Lightning Claw' megaraptor dinosaur discovered and identified in Australia.

    We used to have all manner of "rando cool shit threads" in various subforums that a certain member lacking tech savvy deleted during her brief tenure as a mod.

    Well, I suppose this thread can serve just as well. I almost posted this in the Random Political Thoughts thread, but I think it's more of a science/environment nature than politics by at least a little bit. Though I seriously, seriously hope that the Hemp Farming Act passes so things like this can move forward, more or less unhindered by bullshit legality nonsense. I really want to grow some hemp and process it for textile stuffs.

    The Next Big Thing In Green Packaging Is Hemp Bioplastic - This could be big, really big. And do a helluva lot for the environment, reducing dependency on petroleum products, etc.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.
