    Solo camping quistion

    Leigh - Reading your post I figured you were either somewhere in the rockies, chicago badlands or rain forest, eeek, Cambridge? Be very aware that wandering through the woods at night you're just as likely to come across a policeman looking for louts as you are the louts themselves, and if they...

    Cheap Line Markers

    if you google "LED Throwies" you'll find a few links to similar projects, they first emerged online as a means of urban pranking and grafiti! You could evolve the design by fitting a light dependant resistor so they only come on at night, then with a bit of duct tape to seal it, they'd last for...

    Today's mystery object..........

    on the subject of "Mystery Objects" I wonder if anyone can identify this - the journalist calls it a strange "meaty" mushroom: From an article on the Daily Mail Website described by the reporter as: 'We can see there is something like a mouth; and on the other side there is a hole that...

    Hands only CPR

    my problem with the advret is that it doesn't make it clear that if you know how to do CPR, DO IT! But I'm just being picky. Anything that gets people thinking about it is good.
