comment How to estimate is the branch thick enough to stand on it?
Great question, but I don't know if you'll get a well qualified answer here. I suggest asking professional arborists. Of course they should also be connected with a rope, but they should at least have experience with what does and does not hold weight, be able to recognize a rotten branch, etc.

comment How can I tell when water is contaminated with industrial chemicals without any special equipment?
"so that you don't get sick from hand-to-mouth contamination with their gut flora, which your own body doesn't tolerate like it tolerates its own." -- OK, gross question, but are you saying your own feces won't make you (as) sick? I always assumed that lower GI germs introduced to the upper GI tract is what makes the fecal-oral route especially dangerous. Are you saying instead that someone might prepare food for the group with dirty hands and make everybody else stick, but not himself?
