comment How to create campfire which will burn overnight?
@ShemSeger, if he would advertise his show as "for entertainment purposes only", I'd be willing to give him a break. But when he says "I'm an expert, do what I say", when some of what he does is questionable, and other things are just wrong, then I'm going to call BS on his show. It's very irresponsible, as some people believe whatever he says.

@theUg, that experiment was about the quickest way to cool a 6-pack of beer.

comment What clothing or gear should I wear to prevent ticks?
Permethrin is only toxic to cats and fish, and even then when still wet. Once it's dry, it binds to the material, and doesn't even come off when the clothing is washed. It eventually wears off over some months.

comment Is burying human waste always the lowest-impact solution?
As for toilet paper, use the marine/RV version. It degrades very fast.

comment Survival type activies for Scout camp
I second the orienteering idea. It's a game that teaches valuable compass / navigation skills. @Ahlqvist, you should make that an actual answer.
