    Pretty sure US uses NTSC formatting and Aus uses PAL, DVD might not be compatible......

    Wouldn't it just play the video upside down?


    Thanks for that info. I never would have imagined that DVD formats would vary by country.

    Damn Yes the DVD wouldn't work with any of my gear as it has "protection circuitry" but many thanx for the offer. I am actually surprised that our schools don't offer a program like this; but they don't. Too concerned with the "Stranger Danger" aspects of life in the city I guess

    Small world is right @reppans , first I heard of the Palmer Furnace was from you when you made a comment on Whiteblaze.net. concerning Hypothermia. You directed me here and since then I've been reading more and more threads. Today, this one popped up and recognized the title. Cool how things work out :dblthumb:

    Yeah I was suprised you hadn't heard of it here before. I don't get it, other than here where it's a viable emergency technique (and heck, I enjoy it sometimes just for luxury), other camping, backpacking, and even survivalist forums tend to be so closed minded and nay-sayers about it.

    I sat our for 30 minutes in 25* temps wearing jeans and a flannel shirt using a cheap wool blanket and a Palmer Furnace made from a soup can. I was comfortable. 20190110_114829.jpg

    Another spin on the Palmer Furnace... it was ~20F with wind chill and we were toasty - almost fell asleep (but safely). Also solves the problem of my dog freezing from inactivity when I stop for lunch breaks.

    Note,

    If you do this (break down c4 from a mine or demo kit) at an FTX and aren't near death; you will be later from the paperwork and a senior NCOs boot up your posterior. Not from the safety perspective, but from the spoldey thing accountability side.

    Would flatulence be a concern with the flame between your legs?

    At first this question seemed mildly humorous, but now I am actually wondering if there is any danger.

    Very difficult to light through clothing - disperses too readily. Actually safest way (i.e., to avoid hair singe) is to bubble them up in a bathtub and light 'em at the surface.... or so I read :D.

    A friend of mine was a lumberjack. His fellow lumberjacks would ride in a covered truck from barracks to the area to be lumbered. A well loved pastime while traveling to and from would be who could create the largest fart fireball. He tells the story of many a big farts would singe the eye lids/brows when the farts ignited.

    Reppans, difficult but not impossible :Fart igniting while going through fabric. Caution, video may be offensive:dblthumb:



    Small Fart:



    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Jump to navigationJump to search" style="position: relative; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto; width: 220px;">[​IMG]Lighting a fart
    Fart lighting, also known as pyroflatulence or flatus ignition, is the practice of igniting the gases produced by human flatulence, often producing a flame of a blue hue, hence the act being known colloquially as a "blue angel", "blue dart", or in Australia, a "blue flame". The fact that flatus is flammable, and the actual combustion of it through this practice, gives rise to much humorous derivation. Other colors of flame such as orange and yellow are possible with the color dependent on the mixture of gases formed in the colon. In order to "fire fart", one must have a fart prepared in the anal cavity, and a lighter at the ready. Then they fart onto the lighter.

    In 1999, author Jim Dawson observed that fart lighting has been a novelty practice primarily among young men or college students for decades but is discouraged for its potential for causing injury.[1] Such experiments typically occur on camping trips and in single-sex group residences, such as tree-houses, dormitories, or fraternity houses.[2] With the advent of video sharing features online, hundreds of self-produced videos, both documentary as well as spoof, have been posted to sites such as YouTube. The people appearing in the videos are predominantly young males.[3][4] In his book The Curse of the Self: Self-Awareness, Egotism, and the Quality of Human Life author Mark Richard Leary explains how a great deal of unhappiness is due to people's inability to exert control over their thoughts and behavior and that "stupid stunts", including lighting flatulence, were a way to make an impression and be included in group bonding or hazing.[5]

    Hard boiled eggs and beer. Or a couple of taco bell bean burritos.

    Don't you have pickled onions in America?
    Never share a small tent with a bloke whose favourite bushwalking food was cheese and egg sandwiches flavoured with onions
