comment How can I tell if a plant is poisonous?
Well, bow that you say it... Maybe stating that directly in the question text would make it more clear. The answers that you got so far are more towards the "brought home something unknown".

comment How can I tell if a plant is poisonous?
Just to get this straight: are we talking about bringing home some unknown plants from a stroll through the forest or is this about being somewhere out in a survival situation with no access to other information resources?

comment Where is a good introduction to snow chain usage?
I would suggest migrating this to mechanics.stackexchange.com since it is more about handling/using a car than outdoor activities.

I took the freedom to rearrange and extend your question a bit to make it more clear. If you think I have gone too far, just revert/edit.

I guess you mean using two heart rate monitors at the same time, i.e. within the same activity, right?

comment Why are eye friction hitches not commonly used in rock climbing?
@Mr.Wizard Yes, Bulin=Bowline, and the figure-9 should have been a figure-8 of course...

comment Why are eye friction hitches not commonly used in rock climbing?
There's also another component that does not allow for a fast change in paradigms: interoperability. When climbing you typically climb with different partners and as a responsible climber you also check other climbers' setups and knots. Now nearly every climber can do an optical check of a figure-9 knot, with a Bulin it gets more complicated and you won't find many who are familiar enough with a double Bulin to tell right away if it was tied correctly. So in doubt you step down to the simplest solution you can expect everybody to be able to work with.

comment Is there a device to hook anything on a branch?
Instead of an antler you could just use a similarly shaped piece of a branch.

comment Can a human survive in Saltstraumen or other whirlpool?
Welcome to the Great Outdoors! Your question, as it stands at the moment, might be a bit hard to answer, since it does not give much information. I guess we're talking about swimming in such conditions, or are you also interested in what would happen to a small boat (say, kajak for example)? Maybe you want to have a look at our Help Center and take the Tour to learn a bit more how good questions should look like.
