Deserts and scrublands
« on: April 12, 2010, 02:56:24 pm »
I was reading more about tribes and many really cool tribes live in deserts or scrub lands. I know every body is battling out about forests and jungles (because they are most Na'vi most likely but still I love deserts they are very beutiful what do you people think

Desert regions could be an option, although they are not the most forgiving place neither is a jungle. Despite this I think the main advantage of a jungle or forest is that they are Pandora-like and for a group of people embarking on a complete life change I think it's very important that we are happy where we are and inspired by it and for most people this seems to be a forest.
I think there is much value in living somewhere that reminds us why we have done this and what we are aiming for, embracing as thoroughly as possible our dream ensures we are least likely to forget it in the hardships of reality. Although this may be a somewhat romantic notion.

deserts may be beautiful but arid and semi-arid environments are some of the hardest environments to survive in. the constant threat of burning due to our skin colour would be a huge issue, lack of water and teh fact that its hot and you will lose a lot of moisture as sweat etc.

ill touch upon deserts later in my SAS thread but in the short snippet about it it said it was the hardest environment to survive in.

the fact that there are not many animals in a desert. other than lizards and snakes (mostly reptiles anyway). hunting for large animals (what little there are) could take weeks.

but wait for my post and you will see the good and bad points for a whole bunch of environments

A desert would dry us out in a second. We'd suffer with famine and dehydration first. But in a forest you'd be out quicker, but you have necessary resources.

Scrublands maybe, I'd have to do some more research to satisfy my own curiosity.

Deserts I think not, if anything they're even more dangerous than the rainforests you've been campaigning against

Is it really true black people are more resistant to the sun than white people? :P
Heard alot about that but never knew it was true.

Yup completely true, that's why you tan when you've been in the sun it's your body trying to provide protection against the sun by producing the same chemical that pigments skin. As a point of interest (if I'm correct, don't quote me on this) all humans were originally black.

Cool then, another fact learned :D
And yes i think you are right;
I believe in the evolution theory people used to be monkeys, after that the monkeys slowly became more human-ish, after that black people, and then white people.
Not sure if i should believe it all :P

A desert would seriously be making things hard for ourselves. Practically, you've got little or no vegetation and an extreme (like 40-50 degree) temperature range. Plus they can be pretty unpredictable in terms of weather, particularly temperature could be hard. Like Swokényan said, you lose way too much heat at night with clear skies and dry soil, we would have to be absolutely set for those conditions from day one.
