Poachers Are Not Hunters, The Two Have Nothing In Common

Poachers Not Hunters USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Safari Club International supports legal, regulated trophy hunting and condemns criminal poaching of wildlife. Hunting and poaching are not the same. One is good for wildlife and the other is bad.

Unravel Charger Review: AirPower Is Dead, So Buy This Charging Mat Instead

Jason Fitzpatrick I really love wireless charging, but I don’t love packing multiple wireless chargers when I travel. The Unravel travel charger from Ampere makes it simple to pack light. Now that AirPower is dead, it’s an even more compelling product. At CES 2019 I got a chance to take a peek at the Unravel in person and was really impressed with the design. While everyone was waiting for AirPower to arrive, here was this company with not just a triple charging pad but one that could f...

How many days until animal?

A few years ago I saw a well produced documentary on a cable channel predicting the number of days is would take for civilized man to revert back to the 'animal' if society and civilization's infrastructure were to collapse. It wasn't long, about a week or so I think, as our entire focus would move to survival: water, food, shelter. I've googled like crazy trying to find this but can't find any reference to it. Anyone remember seeing this?
