appocolypse meats erronious meat condom.
lately I've ran into quite a lot of links to diy post appocalypse tools. - one thing I never seem to run into is stuff that is keystone to any of these great ideas working. you know how to scrounge this stuff up from scratch with a lil cobbling and voila super smarness and civilization again! but nevermind minor details- lets consider these necessary things.

calcium carbide. CaC2
this stuff is for when you want to toast you hotdogs and all you have is a lake handy ;) first- the reason for this major trade good is? well duh, calcium carbamide is made at high temperature from calcium carbide and nitrogen gas- it is a fertilizer and happy big plants are important to not scratch dirt to get robbed of a living. but! this joy of living or fertilizer ...or bs...I could be spouting bull of the sha poo poo.... is first like all things made by something know to be destructive... calcium carbide. for you see, you need an electric arc furnace to make caC2 at least on any scale. this mixes with water to make a milky white calcium hydroxide which is a alkaline similar to sodium hydroxide which is draino... powerfuly destructive :D and more fun than this acetylene gas which combined with oxygen is something that burns quite quite hot.
