Woodworker here. Lately I've been delving into hand tool only projects. They don't completely eliminate the danger, sharpness is key, after all, but they're much quieter, more under your control, and you feel more in contact with the wood. There are a few great hand tool only schools online. I really encourage you to give it a shot.

How was it prepared? I had yakitori in Tokyo where it had been quickly seared on the outside but completely raw in the middle. It was so damn good I thought my head was going to cave in. Like grilled chicken but as tender as Otoro sashimi.

During the last Ebola scare, I felt it would be a good time to reread The Stand, I guess I know what I'm reading now!

I do have a question though. I really love post-apocalypse thought experiments and have mentally mapped out several for my situation. I've drawn the line at actual hardcore prepping but let's just say my hurricane kit (I live in Florida) is top notch. The biggest difficulty I think we would face, provided the EOTW scenario isn't catastrophic to the climate, is the retention of all the necessary knowledge to first survive, then thrive. What are the best resources for that knowledge that one could archive and what might the best medium for their storage be? Books are great but take up too much space/weight and electronics have almost unlimited storage but are susceptible to EMP or data loss.

Because of a...um, certain movie, I'm really interested in reading a biography of P.T. Barnum but I imagine I can't fully trust his autobiography to be honest or impartial. What do you feel would be the best biography to read?
