    I'd guess if you do compost and it has food waste, the bears will be attracted to it. Maybe an indoor worm bin would be better? As for a garden-maybe try pig fencing, growing less attractive veggies...

    I hear you Zoe! grass went from mowed to knee high in 1.5 weeks. Ugh, moving in the rain 😣. But yeah, at least we won't have to worry about fire for a few weeks at least!

    I like the way he often hammers home the ideas of what, exactly a comfort and luxury are. Food is a necessity, but food out is a luxury. A hot shower and a vehicle are way more often luxuries than...

    The France incident with Charlie Hebdo was the comparison. A couple of well-armed men with a vendetta walk into the place and kill 12, then escape for a few days and take hostages and kill a couple...

    What do you do with stuff you have replaced, that might have *some use* but none you can think of? For example, a swim suit that has a rip in the liner, or winter boots that are no longer waterproof...
