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

rubber


Though the common ]rubber tree is popular because it responds to wounding by producing more latex [which is harvested], there are other sources like lettuce or dandelion (which have been used commercially).
The latex bark is cut but the (living) camdium not damaged; the latex is allowed to bleed for about 4 hours and is then harvested before it gets the chance to coagulate; therefore the cutting is often done at night or the early morning. 1:4 water is added to the latex and ]formic acid is added.
There are two main solvents for rubber: ]turpentine and ]naphtha (petroleum). Because rubber does not dissolve easily, the material is finely divided by shredding prior to its immersion. An ammonia solution can be used to prevent the coagulation of raw latex while it is being transported from its collection site.
Significant uses of rubber are door and window profiles, hoses, belts, matting, flooring and dampeners (antivibration mounts) for the automotive industry. Gloves (medical, household and industrial) and toy balloons are also large consumers of rubber, although the type of rubber used is that of the concentrated latex. Significant tonnage of rubber is used as adhesives in many manufacturing industries and products, although the two most noticeable are the paper and the carpet industries.
Natural rubber is often ]vulcanized, a process by which the rubber is heated and sulfur, peroxide or bisphenol are added to improve resistance and elasticity, and to prevent it from perishing.

It was found that the use of carbon black in rubber manufacturing significantly increased certain desirable qualities for rubber meant to be turned into tires. Carbon black works as a reinforcing filler in rubber, which increases the durability and strength of the rubber. Specifically, adding about 50% by weight of carbon black increases the road-wear abrasion of the produced tire by as much as 100 fold and improves the tensile strength of the tire by as much as 1008%.
Adding carbon black also helps conduct heat away from certain hot spots on the tire; specifically, in the tread and belt areas, which can get particularly hot at times while driving. This reduces thermal damage on the tire, which further extends its lifespan.

starch + glue 'rubber'


]How to Make Rubber With Corn Starch, Water and Vinegar
- dissolving 1 tbsp. of cornstarch in a little bit of cold water, adding 2 cups of boiling water after the cornstarch has dissolved.
- 1/2 cup of white Elmer's glue
- Add the liquid starch slowly in to the glue. While adding the liquid starch, knead the mixture with your hands
- Squish the putty between your hands as hard and fast as you can. The texture should now feel more like a rubbery ball than soft putty. Set the putty on a surface, such as a table, and pound it as hard as you can with your fist. The putty should now feel like hard rubber and won't yield at all. Put the putty in your freezer to make it stiffer. To make it more pliable again, you simply have to warm it up a bit.
