comment Are barberries edible?
Can you flesh this out any? I know it's a simple yes no question, but other topics to cover to make this more complete for the outdoors would include: Are there any similar looking plants such that it could be easily misidentified. Do you have to make sure they are completely ripe and if so, how do you know? etc.

comment How are sleeping bag temperature ratings determined?
Great answer, it tells me what I really need to know which is that (a)-I can't trust it to be consistent from bag to bag and (b)-someone else's rating may not mean anything to me due to all the confounding factors you list.

comment How long does mayonnaise last unrefrigerated in the back-country?
@LBell -- The sentence from the research you quoted, which you left out: " However, if either type of mayonnaise is cross-contaminated by foods such as raw beef, unclean utensils, or E. coli O157:H7-infected food handlers after commercially processed containers are opened, the pathogen may survive at 58C for several weeks". Your study is about the viability of mayo on the shelf, still sealed, after professional industrial processing. That's not at all similar to an open container in the woods.
