50 Amazing Life Hacks To Simplify Your World Image – off-grid.info
We discovered an amazing page of 50 Amazing Life Hacks To Simplify Your World and had to share! The link is after our introduction to the topic.
Introduction: The word “hack” has become an interesting word in our culture, laden with various shades of meaning, depending on the context in which it is used. Depending on how it is applied, the word can have positive or negative connotations. But in all cases, there is an implication of cleverness or technological prowess on the part of the “hacker”.
The term “hacking” was once applied to software programming and implied an investigative approach to problem solving – particularly to back-engineering complex systems. The meaning of the word then veered towards the exploration of large-scale computer and telephone systems – and before long, this encompassed criminal “cybercrime” activities – leading to media popularization of the term “hacker” used in a very negative way, as denoting specifically a criminal who broke into computer systems.
Nowadays, these meanings exist side by side, which is somewhat confusing and problematic in a way. Nowadays, a hacker could be a software programmer, an “investigative problem solver adept in complex systems, clever techniques and back engineering”, or a cyber-criminal – depending on the context. Let’s just generalize (if we dare) and say that a hacker is someone who dives deep into systems with a free-spirited, individualistic approach to problem solving.
A life hack doesn’t involve breaking into anything! It is essentially a clever technique or short cut which simplifies a task or improves the quality of something. Life hacks typically use “low tech” – in other words, low technology as opposed to high technology – and they often involve repurposing common objects, breaking the rules of how they are “supposed” to be used in clever, innovative ways. Life hacks are generally also fun – and although they use “simple” technology, there is often some interesting science behind them – for those who have such inclinations. What’s interesting is that very many people develop their own life hacks – some of which are downright clever – without even realizing that they have gained a measure of “hacker status” in the process… 😉 The best life-hackers adopt a creative problem solving mindset and may be self-sufficient to a high degree. If they need something, they will make it themselves out of whatever they have to hand, combined with sheer ingenuity.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
