I'm about to head out and ride my bike across the great state of Nebraska, which means the sun will bear down on me for hours every day. I pretty much have the complexion of count dracula. What sunscreens last all day under sweaty conditions? Thanks.

hey /out/, I work as a laborer for a construction company. I have to cut weeds and such. And the worst thing that I have to cut is this shit. We call them water weeds. the only thing we can use is a weedtrimmer. And it's strenuous work, considering how much there is on and around the warehouse property. We've tried basic weedkiller sprays and other expensive ones. Is there any homemade remedy to kill them other than cutting them or pulling them? tl;dr: stupid fucking weeds, impervious to weedkillers.

Hey /out/, I don't know if this is the place to ask, but I took this to /fa/ and never got an answer. So I have these tac boots that I need to wear over the summer, and I'm not sure what to wear them with. How do I downplay them? I realize that they aren't very aesthetically versatile, but I need to talk and interact with strangers so I'm not trying to look like a cowboy/redneck, hobo, or autist. I need to look somewhat presentable or put-together. The nature of my activities requires these boots. The only other option is this same style or similar style (side zip, optional) in a desert tan with a soft, suede-like texture and ballistic nylon material. If it makes any difference, I have packed appropriately products to clean and maintain my boots-- specifically a cream conditioner and protector that guards against water and extreme temperatures. The environments I'll be in will vary by day: woods, desert, coast-- city streets, indoors, docks, etc. I anticipate most will be relatively warm in climate, but for nights or potentially cold, mountainous areas, I do think it best to pack a light coat. Durability, mobility, and weight I can take into account myself. I'm not completely incompetent so I'll consider every suggestion instead of outright shooting them down. Thanks tremendously in advance.

DEET

DEET 14 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
What's up with DEET? Wikipedia is its usual, passive-aggressive, non-committal self, regarding anything bad about it. Is there a reason not to simply use 30% DEET whenever I get into mosquito territory? I mean, a serious reason? I've moved to a land full of mosquitoes, form one where the hippy-bullshit-garlic-citronella-crap actually did work for the five mosquitoes I'd see in a weekend. Here? My holistic garbage was, well, garbage. Then I applied some decent-smelling, 30% DEET cream today, and the bugs were literally bouncing off of my face. It was like I had a god-damned, anti-bug force-field. So why isn't this what every last bug-repellent on Earth is made out of? Is there any reason not to slather myself in this shit, and just feel invincible to the worst things in nature?

Anyone else get real doozies from mosquito bites? >pic related If I get one where there's little fat/skin is stretched they become extremely visble. On the plus side they're fun to "x". Same thing happens with stinging nettles but not piss-ants, wasps, etc. for whatever reason).

Naked and Marooned

Naked and Marooned 18 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So after people saying over and over again that I should watch "naked and Marooned, because it's so real, and it's such a survival show"...and mostly, I'm not that disapointed. It's kinda silly that they make such a big show at the start of the first episode that he spent nine months preparing for this...and then he took many, many days to make fire, and continually consumed raw snails which could be carrying brain parasites...If I were doing 9 months of prep, looking at the local food sources would be step one. The reality is, there are two occasions in the first season he'd most likely have died without medical help, either from his kit or from his emergency kit...and I RESPECT that. This guy has skills, experience, and a lot of tenacity and he almost didn't make it a few times. He does all kinds of stupid shit...his shelter design is over-ambitious, it would have been fine half as tall, with a deeper pitch. He'd have been in in days. He could have had it completed in a day if he'd done his base without braiding his leaves and just tossing a pile of leaves a foot thick over it...but I mean, that's a personal choice thing, and he had other shelter. Whatever. But then It got to the goat. He's been trying to kill a goat for...the entire time he's been on the island...and then he walks along and the goat is "Stuck". Look as this screenshot. It's antler is wrapped, tightly, many, many times in the vine. That is so fucking staged it's not even funny. Thoughts? Am I imagining things, or is the Piss-drinker levels of fakeness?

The /pol/ folk are making noises about a "happening" again, which got me thinking.. 1) Given current events, what is the probability of said happening (World War 3) actually taking place? 2)Say this happening did happen. What are: A- My Chances of survival (irishbro) B- If these chances of survival are low, how can I improve them? I'm asking you guys cause /pol/ is fucking nuts at the best of times

What do you do to pass the time while camping? I'm in the process of writing an adventure novel. I get the most motivation to write when I'm exhausted after a day of hiking. The atmosphere achieved by placing a lantern in my mesh tent at night provides a perfect environment for writing.

Want to go camping tomorrow as I finally have two days off in a row, but the chance of rain is 90%. I don't have any rain gear, but I'm dying to get out even if its just to car camp. Any tips on camping in wet weather? I suppose I'll have to bring something to sit/kneel on, and a fire is probably out of the question.

Let's talk Oakley sunglasses. I currently have a pair with some polarized VR28 Black Iridium polarized for general everyday use, but I'm thinking of selling them and getting a pair with Dark Bronze lenses because 1. polarized lenses fucks with screens, and 2. they're a lot more rose coloured than I was expecting. People said it used a brown base or it looks brown or something, but it really doesn't. I wish they did a dark bronze iridium or similar, but hopefully you won't be able to see my eyes from the outside. Good or bad decision?
