How about no baths at all?Sorry if this is a bad idea but to be honest I this all the little parisites that trying to bath would do would always get there in the end and trying to keep clean would be a waste of time.Just thinking.


Yeah, we're taking all that into account, and we'll see what happens. It might be depending on the location.

And the water based parasites are mostly concentrated in Africa, so no real worries about them.

Just bathe in the freezing river. People of old did it and we can do it again.

Yeah, it seems like people today keep forgetting that we've survived for thousands of years without any modern conveniences. All this stuff is just in the last 100 years.

I think also that you are forgetting that over the span of human history, the only way that we have survived as long as we have was because of the 'modern conviniences' that you all seem to take for granted. I'm not saying that what you are saying is necessarily wrong, what I am saying is that perhaps you should take another look at what you are saying before you actually tell people.

We have to take baths, so that we don't get ringworm, parasites, and all of that sort of thing, and that water that we bathe in needs to be sanitary so that we can avoid the same problems. Boiling the water for us to take baths is an excellent idea, but we should learn to keep the water usage to a minimum. Perhaps even put in some sort of permanent bathing center so that we can have seperate quarters for guys and girls. Sanitation is key for an endeavor like this- we wouldn't want an epidemic to strike in such a close community.

Food for thought.

Yes hot water is nice and clean but I'm just saying, maybe a compromise could be in order. Have mostly cold dunks in the river but once a week or so, take a hot bath. Does that sound okay?

That is perfectly acceptable ^_^ so long as the water is sanitary.

correct, were not going to want to jump into a cold pool of water filled wioth garbage or one that smells bad. We would most likel;y want a flowing stream of some kind so that there would be less possibiltiy of bugs and bad water.

Make sure that the drinking water we get is gathered from UPSTREAM, not downstream. Otherwise, we're drinking all of the water that we bathed in. Which would probably not be yummy in the slightest.

Also, we are going to want to cook the water before we drink it if we are in a forest, just to be on the safe side.

Also we need to find somewhere where the water isn't a funny colour. i.e. Tasmania's Rivers are mainly yellow brown thanks to the mines

To be honest my entire life revolves around computers (well msot of the time), and it would kill me to give it up. However, I would much rather live in a tribe somewhere than be some guy who sits in the same place every day for the rest of his life typing away.

I strongly believe that I could ditch tech in a second. I don't have TV or a cell phone (land line only). The hardest things tech wise for me to give up would be my movies. But still, I could give them to my parents and friends and when I was visiting them on vacation I could watch them then if I wanted.

The hardest thing for me would undoubtedly be seeing my friends/family far less often.

oh-rah man. not seeing family and friends and family would be tough. they are the closest thing to you when you have a bad day. (and what i ment about the gaming is that i dont care if the tribe got rid of it, just saying it would be hard to leave it behind is all)

Yeah, video games would have been tough for me too up until about a month ago. For some reason, Avatar has really lowered my interest in video games. I went from playing about 6-8 hours a day to playing maybe 6-8 a week ;D

Well you should learn to give it up because I don't think we will have video games at the tribe

Hehe, I suppose if you're forced, there's not much you can do about it :P

Interesting, my interest in games went down after watching Avatar too.

Before watching Avatar, I would have never thought I'd ever stop playing games, but after... Gone... My interest in it... Gone. No idea why.

I myself could probably give everything up, it's just that I have a friend that is really, REALLY into DJ'ing, like it is literally his life. Everything is his music, how would something like that be overcome?

Same here. It just doesn't make sense to me. ALL my life I've been a hardcore gamer and now somehow a movie, a MOVIE (well, actually a life changing experience) has changed all that. It's just proof that in life you just never know whats gonna happen next. ;D
