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

what to use for compost


"The Complete Book of Composting" by J.I. Rodale gives all kinds of suggestions as to what you can use in the pile to produce compost (seaweed, hair, bone meal, [sign in to see URL] the list goes on). I made a deal with the local barber shop to take their hair once in a while. "Hair, in comon with wool and silk, has a high nitrogen content. If the sweepings from a barber shop were regularly applied to a compost heap, an enormous amount of nitrogen could be saved, since 6 to 7 pounds of hair contain a pound of nitrogen or as much as 100 to 200 pounds of manure. If kept in a
well moistened heap, hair will disintegrate as easily as
feathers." "The chemical constituents of human hair are nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, carbon and sulphur, approximately the same as bone meal which is a popular rose food."

DON'T USE
- meat, oil, fish, dairy, bones
- weeds that spread by root or have gone to seed
- dog, cat, pig, or human wastes

I liked video on building a compost pile.

Also a good vid on the how and why of a vegetative compost heap.

(Again: if the pile isn't warm enough, add more green [nitrogen],
if the pile smells of ammonia, add brown [carbon])

vid explains that the smell of fish compost can be avoided by surrounding the stack with [they use 6 inches of] dirt.
Fish, straw, leaves, & dirt
PVC pipes with holes in them go under the pile
6 inches [15 cm] dirt on all sides
