It's funny how we allow ourselves to be bullied for things that are simple truths. I was called "four eyes" at times thru my young life and to tell y'all the truth, I accepted it as a dig/slur/... when it never even made any sense to me. I think kids should be trained to accept hurtful things with a "yeah, you're totally right" kind of attitude because really, we all know what bullying is about. It's not about helpfulness or even truth so teach your children just to accept it in a flippant, "I could care less" kind of manner. The bully would be floored if Travis's young daughter said casually and confidently, "yeah, you're right!, Cool observation."

By the by, Travis, she's a doll!!!

I didn't read all posts but don't the Earthships' people use willow beds for taking care of their black water/pooh?

I too, hated hot weather and humid conditions. Then I moved to a country where it was both very hot and very humid. I NEVER once talked myself into thinking I couldn't stand it. I became heat tolerant. I never ever used my AC even though it was there and available. Cold showers were available because the water was never really cold - cool showers were taken.

I firmly believe that one can condition themselves, a type of personal brainwashing, into being physically intolerant of certain things. I do not deny that there could be physical conditions for some that make them unable to do certain things but we all know how deeply we are conditioned throughout our lives to accept what those who came before have told us.

Try talking permaculture or even a different style of gardening to folks who have done it the "family" way for many years.

I got the freebie read a bit on my Amazon book thingee and it was a good read. I expect the unrevealed stuff to be even better than the revealed and I still like to hold a book more than I do a laptop for reading.

I noted a Permaculture argument that also rings true for the trials and tribulations surrounding the English grammar/prescriptions threads. People, even when they find out the truth are loathe to change, loathe to reject the old canards they have been taught thru their formative years, largely because they don't even know where to start.

I have been watching a lot of this PC stuff lately. I just came across Geoff Lawton and his desert project. Tell me, anyone, have there been any threads on China's greening of the desert, Rechsand, growing rice in the desert, ... .

Vim Hof still likes, still takes hot showers but he has controlled cold so it doesn't affect him like it does others.
