I think was another thread about this a while back.

But yeah, dude's videos are crazy interesting and strangely relaxing.

I wish I knew as much as dude when I was a kid. Me and my cousins would have built an empire in the island bush

I made a simple mud furnace for the blower. Then I collected orange iron bacteria from the creek (iron oxide), mixed it with charcoal powder (carbon to reduce oxide to metal) and wood ash (flux to lower the melting point) and formed it into a cylindrical brick. I filled the furnace with charcoal, put the ore brick in and commenced firing. The ore brick melted and produced slag with tiny, 1mm sized specs of iron through it. My intent was not so much to make iron but to show that the furnace can reach a fairly high temperature using this blower.

hell yeah, my grandma had a big backyard and it was basically Lord of the Flies out there everyday with me, my brothers and cousins
building shacks and basketball hoops with scrap wood. We could've taken it so much further with these skills. That is until someone got mad that we weren't doing it how they wanted and knocked the whole thing down

i feel like it's enough talk about cars and comics in various threads in general
plus those topics tend to take up a lot of the conversation once they're introduced, like sports and music
let's get some more alternative topics goings
