FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Gasifier Plans .PDF (high temperature wood-to-hydrogen production, for use in internal combustion engines).  The gasoline to wood ratio is almost 1:10, but it kept many cars running through WWII, when gasoline/petrol was not available for civilian use.

Emergency clotting agent  This humble plant, called 'rabbit ear' or 'hile leaf (German)', can seal clean wounds.  Once I had a deep copper cut, and this leaf (using the underside of the leaf, for 15 minutes) managed to heal it (copper interferes with healing) quickly.  The key is, to get hurt while it's at maximum potency, May/June.  The length of the purple at it's stem, shows the potency; younger leaves work better.

Oddly enough, it also beats back gangrene, as evidenced by my father's useage.  He had a crushed pinkie finger, which wasn't properly cleaned, it got infected.... at it's worst, the infection went halfway up his forearm.  A few months later, the surgeon who cut off was astounded it didn't gangrenous... said it was like cutting a piece of butter |:

It's curative properties may be hormonally based.  When eaten, it produced lactation in un-pregnant goats, and especially ponies |:  This plant is common in the NE of the US, unless you live on manicured lawns...


For all artists looking for work:


[This is the last time I'm doing this... if you can think of anything else I can add, lemme know... I'm dumping this at the bottom of my crazy Vault 101 post, for future reference, if, and more likely when, another artist asks for work...]

"You could always hold out your can at NG, your next newspost should be regarding donations and commissions, add the newspost link to your BBS sig (if you venture there much), and proceed as normal. I've always been told there's a dearth of background artists to be had for more upscale productions, but even then, the pay isn't great :\

     Look for work, like a cat looks for prey: circle around, outward from home. All businesses could use artists, you just have to convince them with your work. Murals (almost everywhere that's doing well/busy, like old age homes, hospitals, public spaces) and chalkboard art at hotels, restaurants and bars. Just talk to a manager on duty who has the authority to commission a service (out of petty cash usually)."

     Post a few pieces on Craig's List (a homeowner/ local business might want a custom sign). Always have a diversified portfolio to show IRL, create real world examples, or at least, point out how your work would enhance their place.. Stopping in a real estate office might net you a quickie company icon job, a garage might want a custom graphic for flyers or an ad in the local free paper. Don't stop believing you can make a buck and get your name out there, keep the ball rolling towards notoriety and bigger payoffs.]

This IHOP on Route 18 had an "Open for 24 hrs." latex-painted graphic on it's side window, but looks like it needs to be scrapped off and re-done, gotta be worth a few bucks to someone.. I'd offer a metal cased razor scrapper (eraser) in with the deal (maybe even a squeegee; both with a sticker w/ your contact info), so in the future, they can take it down whenever.
