Gathering Flint

A fellow bushcrafter, Mike – Survivalmike- , was looking for flint. To bad for him, in Austria there are very few sources of flint (if there are any). So he posted a video on youtube to ask for help.

Lucky for me (and for him) I live near an area full of flint (see previous posts). So I decided to help him out, and went gathering some flint to ship to Austria.

Extreme Cola Vending Machine Hacking

I noticed a lot of people are looking to get things for free. Free in “not paying for it”. You’ll see there are plenty of video’s of Youtube proving this. Everybody is trying to hack a Coca Cola vending machine. So I tought, let’s make a parody on this and I published my own video on YouTube. I gave it the title: “Extreme Cola Vending Machine Hacking”.

The extreme part of it was to show I was popping a can out of a soda machine using the ultimate trick: putting some money in it. It’s fun to see some people like the joke, but it’s even more fun to see all those angry people shouting it’s not a hack, that I’m a fool or a stupid fuck or a gay.

The video is even flagged with “misleading title” and “not suitable for all ages”. Strange how you can make people upset by telling how things should work…

Barack Obama Visiting Belgium

This must be the first official visit of the president of the United States of America – Barack Obama – to Belgium.

I have to admit, paper craft is addictive. It’s big fun to create those little paper creatures. You can find lots of simple paper craft models on But he who wants to have a bigger challenge must certainly try to create Yamaha’s MT-01:

So far the fun part. It seems Barack Obama is going to visit Belgium in October 2009 to celebrate the Canonization of Father Damien (Pater Damiaan – Jozef De Veuster).
