Hello students, Professor Falcon here with today’s lesson in not being a dumbass.
Today, we are going to discuss conservation of resources.
All of you know (hopefully) that you should conserve food, water, and ammunition as much as possible. …The only things that come with an unlimited supply in are stupidity and jackassery. Ammunition, gasoline, food, and water are all things that you know to conserve, but how many of you think to conserve paper? What about duct tape? Energy, wood, metal, paper clips, and any number of things that may be used in a build? I see so many people who think that you can just wrap the shit outta something with duct tape to make it hold, or tie it down with much more rope/string than is needed. This is a huge waste of materials and resources, one that will come back to bite you in the ass one day, probably literally.
Before you start a project or build, ask yourself these simple questions:
What materials will I need?
How much of each materials will be needed?
Do I have enough of each material?
Is this project/build worth the materials it will cost?
What other options do I have to satisfy the need this build/project is designed to fulfill?
What substitutions could I make if needed?
Once you’ve answered these questions, then you can get started building, planning the use of your materials accordingly.
That’s all for today, students. See you next week.
