Well, not knowing if you will live everytime you get sick might be stressful. Plus mosquitoes

 

Not to mention winter, and wondering about if you would have enough food to make it.  

 

And some of those "skirmishes" with the neighbors got a little extreme.   Also, don't forget there were no horses in the Americas until the Spanish imported them.   So you would have been walking across North Dakota....or where ever you happened to be born.   No steel or other metal other than a little copper, so you could stay busy making stone knives and scrapers and hammers and arrowheads.    

 

No thanks.

They didn't have much trouble before we showed up, how many thousands of years was it? Like sled said, talk about stress free, aside from a few skirmishes with the neighboring tribes life wasn't that bad. It's totally fine to think technology makes our lives better, that is true some of the time but it also feels like one big rat race.

The next time you or loved one has to have some sort of surgery (minor in todays medicine) go back 100 years.

Example--When my mother was 11 years old (1918) she had her appendix removed on her parents dinning room table with her oldest brother and dad holding gas lanterns for light with 1 nurse and doctor doing the surgery and anesthesia (Chloroform). I'll take the rat race, which will probably seem slow paced to people 100 years from now.:D

Meh, your ancestors will probably say the same about your current life style 1,000 years from now.

A fellow named Hobbs sometime in the mid 1600's said ......life is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short......and one could/should choose to form a social contract with others in form of a government to help mitigate that. He is credited as one of the founders of our modern political system. In his book Leviathan, chapter 15, page 223, he even said an atheist can work for a private school without being a hypocrite and ignorant.

I was thinking along the same lines when reading that. :crazy:

 

When my daughter was young we went through a tour at the Fort Snelling historic site and we went into the medical room and there was a surgeons kit on a table like the one pictured below. My daughter asked what the saw was for and I'll never forget the look on her face when the gentleman explained, if you had an infection in your arm or leg they would amputate that limb to stop the infection from spreading. Needless to say I had to try an answer some awkward questions on the way home from that tour.

I read the series "master and commander" which were set in the British Navy in the early 1800's.   No anasthesia, just leather covered chains...   You didn't want dental work done either.

I know you're a devout christian that really knows his bible, but The Levianth is not, repeat not, a chapter in that book. It is a separate book by a real, identifiable author.:blush:

That is a little strange, since their biggest payload was opium to China. 

 

Must not have been an FDA in existence to tell them it was okay to use for pain relief...:P

They had limited amounts of Laudanum on board, but the crew didn't seem to get any.  Great books, by the way.   Really interesting.

Since she has pretty much disappeared from view, not much new.   Feel free if you have something.

According to wikipedia, the Sophie spent most of the first part of her life disrupting American trade, but was later sent to the East Indies, where it spent at least some of its time running protection for the East India Trading Company, whose principal cargo from India was opium.  And she was also active in the First Anglo-Burmese War.

So PEATMOSS spelled it wrong, what's your point?

His point is still valid given the fact that Leech thought the quoted paragraph was from the Bible he tells others they should learn more about.

The books I referred to were fiction.  

 

The itinerary of the ships was changed for dramatic purposes.  I think,  however, that depiction of life at sea was reasonably close.

What's equally strange is China's Great Wall was already completed, and had no impact whatsoever on the booming opium trade being conducted by the East India Trading Company (the world's first example of an international corporation).

 

 

although the Chinese imperial governed had long prohibited the drug except for medicinal use, the "British Hong" (companies such as Dent, Jardine, and Matheson authorized to operate in Canton) bought cheaply produced opium in the Begal and Malwa (princely) districts under the auspices of the British East India Company, the number 150 lb. chests of the narcotic being imported rising from 9,708 in 1820 to 35,445 in 1835.

    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.
