It’s been a while since I researched primitive technologies [for Vokhtah], but I couldn’t resist this one:
The thing I love about it is that every single thing he uses comes from a ‘natural’ source [except the starter flame]. It’s almost like a how-to for post-apocalyptic living. If you’ve ever wondered how primitive people did things, this is one video not to miss.
I am the kind of person who always has to know why things are the way they are so my interests range from genetics and biology to politics and what makes people tick.
For fun I play online mmorpgs, read, listen to a music, dance when I get the chance and landscape my rather large block.
Work is writing. When a story I am working on is going well I'm on cloud nine. On bad days I go out and dig big holes...

I’m not sure if it was meant to be a ‘this is how primitive people did it so no modern conveniences’ type thing or maybe he just lit a match off camera. 😀

lmao – I’m not sure I fancy washing my clothes in the creek using nothing but a stone to pound them clean!

Hmm . . . what a beautiful, meditative video; very satisfying and sensual too. Thankyou.

Welcome. And I know what you mean. There’s part of me that is just itching to see if that process would work for me. 🙂

If you think about it, my house isn’t that old… so just 100 or so years ago, life was still set up in a considerably more primitive way. We have the original greenhouse, chicken coop and bread oven.
At general stores people got grains and matches, but most of the other things were only available on market day (once a week.)

Actually you’ve reminded me that even 50-60 years ago, life was much more primitive than it is now. I remember having to use an outside dunny [a small shed with a hole in the ground covered by a wooden toilet seat] complete with redback spiders in country Australia when we first arrived in the the late 1950’s. And my Grandmother did not have a fridge until she was well into her 80’s. Almost scary how much things have changed in such a short time.

Cool. Thanks for sharing. I have to research things like this all the time for my writing…and for the apocalypse 🙂 A great find.
