TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Re: electricity


TO MAKE ELECTRICITY GENERATOR IS NOT A EASY THING, BUT CORDLESS DRILLS ARE MACHINES THAT CONVERT DC STORED IN BATTERIES TO ROTACIONAL MOVEMENT, AND ALSO COULD BE USED IN A INVERSE WAY, GIVE TO THE DRILL ROTACIONAL MOVEMENT WHIT THE HANDS OR MAY BE EVEN WITH A SMALL WATER FLOW OR WIND, AND THEN USE IT AS A SMALL DC ELECTRICITY GENERATOR AND BATTERY CHARGER. THE WONDER OF THIS MACHINES IS THAT ARE ALREADY BUILD AND EASY TO USE.

electric light


I just saw ]mention of the celebration of a light bulb that's been on for 100 years straight in some fire station in the USA.

I learned at school from a teacher once that the way to have a light bulb never break is to offer it less energy than it was built to handle. So offer a 100W bulb only 75W, or so, and it'll never break. I always remembered this and was considering it for post-2012, but now i saw the proof of his statement in this article on a 100-year-bulb, i'm going to really take it seriously.

The bulb in question seems to have an unusually long length of glowing wire, which might account for it's longevity because it can then handel current better, distributing it more evenly over the glowing material. These kind of large bulbs are also often built for higher currents so if this fire station bulb has been hanging there receiving 110V when it can handel much more, that might account for it's incredible age.
Wikipedia says: "The bulb's long life has been attributed to its low power, near continuous operation, and dedicated power supply."

How to arrange that a light bulb receives less power than it's built for, for that you'd have to ask a technician. I don't know about such things, unfortunately. I do imagine, however, that a 12V system, which is the most likely in a survival setting, would inherently ask less of a light bulb than it's built for. Then it's just a matter of getting a strong enough one so it'll still offer meaningful light even though it's getting much less than it can handel.
