Personally I find StackOverflow to be good for personal development. We should all spend some time trying to debug code without a compiler now and then.

comment How to ignite coal on grill device without using kindling?
It is highly dependent on the type of coal. Do you happen to know the type or have a picture?

comment What type of pole can be used for trout while backpacking?
Thanks for the feedback. Cheap is good in this case, because of the risk of breakage.

comment How to deal with hail outdoors without special equipment?
We had this happen one time but fortunately had already strung a tarp up which was enough to deflect the hail.

Great advice, especially the end comment about not going too far too soon.

comment Is it possible to develop the immunity against mosquitos?
Just because humanity has survived through something for thousands of years doesn't mean our ancestors had some sort of immunity we've lost. Good examples are polio and malaria (and malaria still kills hundreds of thousands per year).

comment What do you risk when you ignore blisters and carry on walking?
@ŁukaszLech -- I'm not sure I'd say "more likely", just that it's possible. It depends on the person and the shoes. Bad shoes can easily drop you before exhaustion. I don't think anyone is "likely" to die from blisters. It would take an extreme extent of determination and negligence for things to get to that point. I do know people who have let it get to the point that they needed antibiotics. Sepsis however is a whole stage beyond that. You'd probably get gangrene before sepsis. I could see Gangrene happen in a situation where one was neglectful for too long in a damp environment.
