I am not saying that everyone must go through a military style survival training (although you totally could, if you like!), you must know some basic survival tips and tricks. These tips and tricks can be the difference between life and death. So, yeah, they are more important than knowing what happens in the next episode of your favorite show!
Filmed a music video for So Super Slow a while back with @luclonde and @darlinyoukillme — Luc is turning my singing footage into a futuristic animation which takes a lot of work! Here’s a still of his work in progress. Looking forward to seeing it develop more!

Go ahead, pick up any survival handbook and inside you’ll find the same boring repetitive stuff. How to make a spear from a stick, a bow & arrow from some tree saplings, and a slingshot from a Y-shape tree branch.

There are a ton of high-quality flashlights out there. A high-quality flashlight is one of the first things that goes into my survival kit. Invest in a good quality light as it can save your life in a difficult situation.
The water was the energy source. Again, just because something has one USE doesn’t mean you can’t use it for both or for whatever you want. Here, a solar powered pump, pumps water up into a storage tank up above its intended use. When needed a simple hand valve is then turned the water drains out of the tank, turning a generator and you have electricity…. (If you capture the draining water, you could use it repeatedly or to drink or shower etc)… I noted I’d come back to fuel (storage) tanks. A small gasoline powered generator is useless without gas. But, a Diesel one-if you could make bio-diesel, or with a flex fuel generator, using diesel or propane, could have a way to add a smaller portable tank… by installing one of those large propane tanks common on farms or in the Mid west even more options.
