comment How to make a fully-enclosed tarp setup with a 1.4 x 2.4 meter tarp, for one person?
Indeed, stake down the corners so that the tarp is nice and taut and use rocks or logs to further secure the sides when you can. I've found that this keeps out virtually all rainfall. If the wind gets strong enough to move logs around, then the rain is probably the least of your worries.

I don't think there are any filters or purifiers that can consistently remove dangerous amounts of mercury.

comment What are some emergency water purification methods?
Like I said, it has to be done carefully. Even so, it wouldn't 'blow up,' but it could potentially rupture and leak.

comment How do you flavour your water on camping trips?
If you plan on making tea out of surrounding vegetation, only use leaves and roots that you know aren't going to kill you :)
