I love how the guy is all "this will help you survive in the apocalypse" when no, no it will not. It's just an idiot stove that's fun to burn random shit in, and maybe you can make hot dogs in its 6" x 6" fire hole, but if you want something useful a basic charcoal grill is like $ 20.
Better hope those cinder blocks haven't been rained on in about a week.
Eh, just a regular small wood fire doesn't have much chance of blowing up something as porous as cinder block. If you feed it a small amount of kindling for a few hours before you try to get it ripping, you should be good.
There's this fairly popular youtuber "Kingofrandom" who does a lot of backyard foundry stuff. Dude is a horror show waiting to happen. He often does things like putting cold recycled metal in a hot crucible, sloppily dropping hot metal on concrete, pouring hot metal into wet play sand, etc.
His comment sections on every other video are just hundreds of posts by people going "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING YOU IDIOT!?" Recently, he's been scoring some big name collabs and every one of them look TERRIFIED.
It's a fun watch, but not for the reasons intended.
Good to know I know river stones in a regular open campfire will mess you up but I suppose that's a whole different situation.

Finally we get to see Bort's Ninja 3 in 1 cooking system in action! Presumably the ninja part is where you break the thing with your noggin?
The ninja part is where I sneak into your house and replace all your meat with lentils and it will SERVE YOU RIGHT.
I've been known to violate the Geneva Convention after a solid serving of lentils. You'd best alert the UN before working that foul magick.
I slowed down the video to 1/4 speed, so I could see how the hell to assemble this fucking thing, but then I couldn't understand him. This is stupid. Could someone send me the blueprints IN PLAIN ENGLISH.
Please hurry, I want to carterize the thumb I just broke, before it sets.
Here is ONE WEIRD TRICK to "carterize" a bone for no good reason.
I spelled cauterize wrong. But, for the record, I know it's for treating fevers, not broken bones.
Thanks for proving my hunch that you could get to racism from a pile of bricks.
You're like the guy from Beatiful Mind, but, you know, retarded.
Carterizing a bone is swinging a deal with Iran to let Reagan set it.
Also, anyone not willing to shoot a Republican at a baseball game is now far right as far as the left is concerned. They are following the footsteps of the Taliban : door to door authoritarian hate speech is failing them, so guns time.
Listening to the Democrats support gun violence all morning on CSPAN changed my mind about the reggies being fringe.
They actually are the core of the Democrat party.
Keep smoking that crack meme you absolute retard.
"Also, anyone not willing to shoot a Republican at a baseball game is now far right as far as the left is concerned"
I'm seeing some of this and I call bullshit. You want to change the system, you vote. You didn't vote, you suffer and learn from your mistake. And you sure as fuck don't turn to the "Second Amendment remedies" you were denouncing in 2011.
"Listening to the Democrats support gun violence all morning on CSPAN changed my mind about the reggies being fringe."
I didn't see this, do you have names?
I haven't watched any cable news, but there does seem to be a bit of "how awful, but they had it coming," from a fairly substantial amount of the public.
I'd strongly suggest at least entertaining the possibility that the Left's fringe is pulling the center towards the gutter. I don't think that a few years ago I'd be called a conservative bigot - for what I'm assuming is my position on free speech and critisms of vigilante violence.
Now that the radical Left has retooled Marxism with identity politics, Left Wing terrorism will likely/logically graduate from destruction of corporate property to murder.
I think we are at a fork in the road. This dumpster fire of an election maybe will teach others as it has taugly me, either take inventory or join the pigs in the shit.
The more convinced someone is that they or their group is the furthest thing from what they hate the more dangerous they are.
Voting may help too, as Bort has repeatedly failed to mention.
I find it hilarious to watch -supposedly- liberal 'not right-wingers' use the literal definition of 'cultural marxism' (itself a thinly veiled reboot of 'cultural bolshevism') to describe anything even slightly Left of Clinton as 'Marxism'. Almost like they don't know wtf Marxism is or something 🤔 🤔 🤔
'Identity politics' too, how odd that these are the same boogeymen the far-right are so utterly obsessed with, here being repeated verbatim. RLY MAEKS U THINK.
I've got issues with anyone who is dismissive towards "identity politics": to not support "identity politics" is synonymous with letting whites (and straight guys and Christians and etc) continue to mistreat minorities. It's supporting an unjust status quo through inaction, which is just a less honest way of endorsing white supremacy.
White "progressives" who won't take up the cause of minorities are looking after their own well-being and nobody else's. I thought progressives were focused on the well-being of those whom society mistreats the most, but maybe that's just PR.
If you support progressive economics and you additionally support causes like BLM, you lose nothing. Well, you probably won't get Jeremy Christian on your side, but did you really want him?
No one is making the radical left fly the hammer and sickle at their marches. So the fact they claim to be Marxist and seem to have a disdain for open, Western societies is enough for me.
I refuse to buy that the only options are militant identity politics or apathy/racism. There's clearly a sane middle ground. And I'm proud that I'm not so ideologically entrenched that I wouldn't be critical of what I think is wrong or evil - even if assholes across the line would agree with me, superficially at least, for their own shitty reasons.
I try to treat people equally regardless of race/sex, whatever and try to be kind - you know, the actual solution to bigotry. Grasping at straws to yell racist or fantasizing about violence against the violent is pretty shallow.
Our crack pipe hitting friend once said something to the affect of: "blacks/minorities have become the political cum rag of the left." I'd have to agree.
If you guys teach at inner city high schools, volunteer at homeless shelters, house rufegees - you have my respect and moral high ground. But, If you just accuse people of racism a lot and passively support "movements" - well, my dog can lick its own balls.
I had to laugh when I scrolled up and remembered it's a video of 5 cinder blocks. HAWT political times.
I love you all. Have a good night.
"I try to treat people equally regardless of race/sex, whatever and try to be kind - you know, the actual solution to bigotry."
Bigotry is a tiny part of a much larger structural/systemic issue, one that can't be eased by you or me being nice to people affected by it, it requires change to the status quo that the fencesitter white moderates and crybaby SQW brigade block and vote against and claw down at every opportunity.
This is actually what most of you grown-ass men who cry about SJWs are reacting to (the fact that the target is always the lowest hanging fruit of sociology first year dumbasses is yet another tell), your own group identity politics are positively shook at the very idea that you might have to be even one iota less comfortable in order for the affected peoples to be treated with justice, or if there's no '''''underclass''''' any more then somehow your 'status' loses value.
"There's clearly a sane middle ground."
This is a bullshit liberal fantasy, the idea that being in the middle is some very brave, principled stand when actually it's the complete refusal to take a stand. It's an abnegation of responsibility for your part in propping up/tacitly approving the status quo and moreover it is fucking EASY to take that side when society already benefits your group, broadly.
As for the hammer and sickle, thanks for confirming my point that you literally have no idea what 'Marxism' is.
"I refuse to buy that the only options are militant identity politics or apathy/racism."
Nice job throwing "militant" in there so that you can immediately reject identity politics. I'm not even sure you have a clear concept of what "militant" identity politics are; it's just an adjective that allows you to dismiss whatever follows it.
To do nothing is to support apathy/racism. Gotta do something, and you know what? It's really not asking too much to support organizations whose big concept is that they don't like being victims of police abuse, or they don't like their mosques being vandalized / set on fire.
This should be so obvious that I really have to think worse of anyone who objects to it.
Siiiike! Back to argue.
>>Nice job throwing "militant" in there so that you can immediately reject identity politics.
Thank you, for noticing exactly what I meant to say. Yes, I reject militant identity politics. If you want to call efforts to make opportunities more evenly distributed 'identity politics,' that has my full philosophical support - besides voting I don't know how much of an impact I can make towards that.
>>positively shook at the very idea that you might have to be even one iota less comfortable in order for the affected peoples to be treated with justice, or if there's no '''''underclass''''' any more then somehow your 'status' loses value.
That aint me, bb.
>>It's really not asking too much to support organizations whose big concept is that they don't like being victims of police abuse, or they don't like their mosques being vandalized / set on fire.
Support how? Like, verbally? Financially? Facebook?
Verbally, financially, time-and-effort-ly. Whatever you can reasonably do.
Also reject politicians who aren't on board, or at least write them a letter telling them that they ought to take "identity politics" (read: supporting the identity politics of other than white people) more seriously.
I mean, just by my basic humanity I'm opposed to police brutality and destruction of property/intimidation. Do I have to align myself with a political organization whose agenda likely varies wildly, like Christian churches? They all claim to praise God.
I believe TRYING to think critically and act kindly is a good portion of what I can contribute to society, at least for now. ( until I own some means of production wink, wink, bawbag ). So, unless I start volunteering or something - I'll just have to hope the ol 6 degrees of seperation scatters my beautiful, beautiful seed.
Unless you guys have a better idea.
"I mean, just by my basic humanity I'm opposed to police brutality and destruction of property/intimidation."
Find me anyone who says they're in favor of those things.
"Do I have to align myself with a political organization whose agenda likely varies wildly, like Christian churches? They all claim to praise God."
See, this is why I think you're less serious about any of this than you profess. The overall thrust of, say, BLM is pretty unobjectionable to anyone with a sense of basic humanity ... yet you're trying to make it's an unknowable abstract matter like deciding which church is right. You come off like someone who is fundamentally opposed to BLM and comparable organizations, but rather than come out and admit it, you're raising objections and concerns until the issue hopefully goes away.
>>Find me anyone who says they're in favor of those things.
Dude, there's millions.
>>You come off like someone who is fundamentally opposed to BLM and comparable organizations, but rather than come out and admit it.
That irks me. Pretty tepid criticism of the far left and just THE QUESTIONING of whether I need to align myself with activist groups (none in particular) that share my values and I'm secretly, fundamentally opposed to BLM. I don't know shit about BLM, in real life, but if I was fundamentally opposed to their stated mission that would sure as shit make me a bigot.
Any group with P.R. expertly crafts innocuous mission statements. The Koch Foundation's website could bring a tear to my eye. (not comparing them, not comparing them, not comparing them). But, you know what I mean.
So, BLM the sentiment? - of course.
The activist organization? Dunno, I've never met a member or spokesperson.
"Any group with P.R. expertly crafts innocuous mission statements. The Koch Foundation's website could bring a tear to my eye. (not comparing them, not comparing them, not comparing them)."
Dude, OF COURSE you just compared them. If you weren't trying to put apples next to apples, what was the point of typing that?
"The activist organization? Dunno, I've never met a member or spokesperson."
On the one hand, Philando Castile's murderer was just acquitted.
On the other hand, you haven't happened to accidentally bump into BLM members or spokespeople, so you really have no way to decide whether BLM is clearly, obviously, emphatically on the right side of the issue.
Allow me to not-compare what you're saying. "On the one hand, I think lynching blacks is wrong. On the other hand, I've never actually talked to MLK Jr or any of his supporters, so WHO CAN POSSIBLY SAY WHETHER THEY'RE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF BASIC DECENCY AND OF HISTORY?"
Yeah, right, I'm reserving judgement. The only stuff I know about them is from what I've inadvertently read or seen on the internet - which ranged from mostly peaceful protests and public outreach to occasional calls for murder and some other pretty radical stuff that I'm not into.
I also agreed with many of the sentiments of the OWS movement, but I wouldn't wish to unambiguously claim to support them. They had drum circles, for christs sake.
I'm just not an activist or group kind of guy. Think what you will and do whatever you think is right.
