Paracord: 101 Uses

Like the next guy or gal, I love paracord. It is a handy tool that has multiple uses, but have you ever heard of 101 uses for it? While researching information on the Internet, we came across a video that while it had come funny in it, it also had some great ideas we felt we should share with our readers.


When I first started shooting modern crossbows several years ago, I had no idea what to expect. Like many who had never played with them, these tools confused me. I had seen them on TV, but without ever handling one, I wasn’t sure about a lot of things. How do you load one? How do you pull the string back? What’s the trigger like? Do they kick, like a rifle? Are they noisy? Are they accurate? How far away can you accurately shoot one? Do they have enough power to kill a deer?

A Guide to Asymmetric Living

Not too long ago Andrew Tuohy from Vuurwapen Blog posted a video titled I am not a “sheepdog” This echoed many sentiments that I have had for a long time. The moniker “sheepdog” as ‘one who loyally obeys the shepherd and protects the sheep’ did not sit well with me. The term sheepdog has always bothered me. I will fight for myself and my loved ones. I’m not here to protect everyone.
