Lamentable...!

(從前出過的一篇資料,重溫一下)Tinder Box(火石盒/煙盒. 180多年前一個很重要的工具。嚴格上,它是一個容器。 . Tinder box內一般會有以下的物品: 一塊D型或U型的高炭鋼,一塊火石及一些炭化綿布或麻繩。 . 1830年,火柴普及之前,人們都是靠它來生火。跟據 Sabine Baring-Gould, Strange Survivals, 1892, Devon, England 的記載,“從前的早上,第一種聽到的聲音就是嗒,嗒,嗒。各家各戶都在用打火石生火準備煮食。” 他們會將炭化綿或麻質纖維放左盒中,搞擊鋼鐵和火石打出火花,燃點起盒中的纖維,慢慢加上柴枝,讓火種燃燒後放到爐頭中。這當然不是一件容易的事。所需的時間和耐性亦會因天氣而有所不同。 . Tinder box有分為家用或隨身使用,亦曾經是一件男性必備的隨身物,有一些簡單實用,亦有一些設計精美是為了用來炫耀。就像今時今日的打火機一樣。製造物料有木,錫及黃銅。有一些會加上一片放大鏡,直接利用太陽光生火。 1850年,tinder box已經完全在市場上消失,取而代之的就是火柴。到了百多年後的今天,大家再次對bushcraft,野外求生等事情產生興趣,大家再次開始研究這種生火的藝術,令tindox box又再廣泛地出現。 #collector #hkvintage #日常 #lifestyle #hkstyle #hk #香港 #americastyle #usa #生活品味 #美國 #美式 #復古 #經典品牌 #美國貨 #アウトドア

This is something I don't understand - public laundry and dry... Especially in the USA where everything has bigger spaces... That must have place for a machine (maybe electric fee is way too expensive??) Plus sun is out there... You can easily dry your laundry under the sun!! Don't you think? Let's step out from comfy lifestyle and take little time to think.. - you drive all the way to the shop and wait about an hour in the shop. First you waste your time.. And mostly you waste a lot of energy to dry wet clothes + drive... Is it really necessary? I really hope there a big reason for all of this... _ 미국은 땅도 넓은데, 왜 집집마다 세탁기가 없을까요? 그건 그렇고, 런던과 달리 햇빛이 쨍쨍한데, 굳이 건조기를 이용할 필요가 있을까.. 생각해 봅니다. 😥편한 생활방식을 벗어나 잠시 생각해 보아요.. _ #wasteofenergy #에너지낭비 #미국 #여행 #trip #세탁소 #trip #travel #usa #다른방식 #다른문화 #differentcultures #shotononeplus #oneplus
