Sprouting Glass – Results

The result after 4 days of letting them grow. Cool, I hope they taste good.


Sprouting Glass

So they sell what they call a “Sprouting Glass” for growing e.g. mung bean sprouts etc. in my local garden market. Basically, that gadget is not much more than a glass jar with a slotted lid and an attached stand. I think you could easily make one yourself, but it was only 5 bucks and I liked the idea, so I really didn’t care.


Prepping: First Aid

In succession to my recent post on reasonable prepping, here’s what I packed in my Utter Darknesss First Aid Kit. Additionally I have (and you should, too) a perfectly averagely stocked medicine chest for everyday use. Make sure you rotate the contained drugs on a regular basis in order to avoid spoiled medicaments!


Steak Cuts Overview

So this guy did a cool overview of steak cuts with descriptions on Imgur. Worth reading!


Kitchen Knife Overview

Found an interesting infographic on kitchen knives. Here it is:


My Form of Prepping

So, slowly I’m transforming into one of those quixotic and sometimes slightly weird SHTF-doomsday guys, right? Well, no. Not really.

I just want to be reasonably prepared for the mishaps of life and I like to have a backup for my wife and me if things go down the drain for a couple of days. At the end of the day it is (without overdoing it) not much more than what was ordinary household management for my gradmother’s generation back in their time: A little stockpiling, a little preparation and some common sense of not relying entirely on the everyday civilizational amenities.

Even the german government (!) recommends some disaster precautions (Frankly, I think they’re talking shit – hoarding bananas is not the first thing on my mind when thinking about disaster preparation…). Anyway, here’s what I think is useful and unexcitedly reasonable for two people in a calculated 72 hours of utter darknesssss:


Springlane Sous Vide Stick!

This is my Springlane™ “Henry” sous vide stick (it was a birthday present from my sister)! This was some time ago already and now I finally have the time to post an article on it…

 

First, that thing is large. In all the pictures that I had seen before, it looks rather small and handy but in reality it is 35 (!) cm long, so I first had to find a container that was high enough to fit 🙂


My Kitchen Conversions Cheat Sheet

This is what I put together for personal use (american ⇒ metric). It’s pinned to my fridge wall and I use it often. You might find it interesting too.


GDPR Checklist

Found a very good summary and explanation on the new european “General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”.

It’s german language and you can find it over here. If you’re a website owner it’s really worth reading.


How a Torque Converter Works

This is a highly interesting (german language) video about the function of the torque converter that drives every car with an automatic transmission. I didn’t know that before and learned a lot!
