  • Starting Fire with Flint & Steel - HowTo

    Some may consider starting fire with flint-and-steel to be an advanced skill, used only by the wise old sages and mountain men but that's not true, it's incredibly easy; even my nan could do it. So, what is it? And how do we use it? The flint striker is just an ordinary piece of carbon steel, or a metal alloy with a high content of iron. It is shaped in such a way that it allows you to fit your fingers through it like a knuckleduster which serves to protect your fingers from being sliced open by the sharp piece of rock that we use as a striker. The concept of fire making with flint and steel might seem intimidating to those that aren't familiar with the practice but it really is just an older variation of the ferrocium rod; it works in very much the same way, but you can't knock it's val...

  • Psychos Destroy Building Flint Michigan 810

    2013_12_22 - This building was called Genesee Towers. Construction began in 1966 and the 19 floor building opened in December 1968. The plan was to make the building look like two separate buildings, with one stacked onto the others, but due to the width and height limitations, the full dual building effect did not get used, so instead it looked like a normal building with a gap at the center. Only Flint would construct a building and have it torn down within 45 years. This is a prime example of the psychos that run our city. This building had a huge bar called the University Club at the top floor that was members only. This design was called Modernism, if you wish to see how this building should have looked like, look up "Parkway Towers, 404 James Robertson Parkway in Nashville, Ten...

From asking dance fans on dance forums, 810 was told that CBD would be recorded late in the pertaining year, then would air on PBS early the next year. The following is the message acquired from the head of records,... Hello, I can’t tell you when Championship Ballroom Dancing 1988 aired on every PBS station, because each station creates their own programming schedule. I can tell you that the earliest it was available to PBS member stations was January 25, 1989. It aired here in Boston on WGBH 2 on January, 27, 1989. It seems that the event was recorded in November, 1988, which is consistent with your research.

    Please note this was filmed at night time with a cell phone so the video quality is bad in some spots but one of the two helicopters has the navigation lights on which makes it a lot easier to see. Also, there was a large crowd and coarse language has NOT been edited out. Last night while walking in downtown Flint, MI by Churchill’s Food and Spirits, a Blackhawk helicopter flew overhead, barely above the peaks of the buildings. We noticed an ABC12 news van parked across the street and decided to see if they knew what was going on. Not long after crossing the street and talking with them the following events of this video took place. Two Blackhawk helicopters hovered over the roof of the building across the street and soldiers rappelled into the top story windows. After a few moments, a mu...

Some may consider starting fire with flint-and-steel to be an advanced skill, used only by the wise old sages and mountain men but that's not true, it's incredibly easy; even my nan could do it. So, what is it? And how do we use it? The flint striker is just an ordinary piece of carbon steel, or a metal alloy with a high content of iron. It is shaped in such a way that it allows you to fit your fingers through it like a knuckleduster which serves to protect your fingers from being sliced open by the sharp piece of rock that we use as a striker. The concept of fire making with flint and steel might seem intimidating to those that aren't familiar with the practice but it really is just an older variation of the ferrocium rod; it works in very much the same way, but you can't knock it's value in terms of an emergency back up so it's a good idea to get acquainted with these practices. To create sparks we need a tough, sharp rock such as flint, chert or quartz to shave off incredibly thin pieces of metal from the carbon steel. Where can you find these special rocks? Wonder around the forest or scan the water's edge for a few minutes and you'll bump into some sooner or later. If all you can find are smooth clumps, then just smash a piece off of it with another clump to create a thin, sharp flake of flint. Strike the flint with the steel at a glancing acute angle. Strike it hard, don't pussy foot around it, you need to strike it with enough force to actually shave the metal off. Don't tap it, give it a bit of a whack but make sure it's a glancing strike that just grazes the flint; otherwise you'll just dent your striker, break your flint and create zero sparks. Takes about 5 minutes of practice to get it the technique down correctly, easy peasy right? There are three ways to strike, one way is to hold the steel stationary and strike the flint across it, but this is arguably more dangerous as you run the risk of completely missing and slashing your knuckle open with the flint; this technique is used when you're trying to throw sparks downwards at a tinder bundle that's on the ground. The safer, more practical way to do it is to hold the flint stationary and strike the flint with the steel. This causes the sparks to fly upwards and outwards, eventually getting one to land on a piece of tinder that you're resting on top of the flint. This could either take you 5 seconds or half a minute, depends which way the sparks want to fly that day. Lastly you can hold the base of the fire steel if your fingers won't fit through it or if you're wearing thick gloves and smash that into the flint. The hardest part about making fire with flint and steel is getting the charred material to use as tinder, and creating a birds nest tinder bundle out of natural materials which is a skill-set all on its own, but that's easypeasy if you know your shit.

Not long after crossing the street and talking with them the following events of this video took place. Two Blackhawk helicopters hovered over the roof of the building across the street and soldiers rappelled into the top story windows. After a few moments, a multitude of gunshots and small explosions appeared in several windows. Afterwards, the Blackhawks returned to the rooftop and retrieved the soldiers, flying over the large crowd that had gathered. After talking with the camera crew we discovered that this was all a part of a military urban training exercise, in conjunction with other exercises already executed in another part of the city. The exercise lasted about 45 minutes so we apologize for some of the choppy transitions as this was a bunch of shorter videos merged together.
