Since man's darkest days, the deepest shadows have held fear. Those who are steel of heart seek out and face these shadows. Those who are rougher still lead others to do the same. Here are the tales told by those hardy souls. Here are the tales of the Explosiventure Trading Company.

-E.T.C. Spike up in the trading post-
Razor sharp little tool steel blades. Lash it to a handle or arrow shaft. put it on a necklace. Hide it in a seam. Carve a spear and kill a pig for dinner. Rip a shower of sparks off a ferrous rod to start a fire. These little guys will do the job and come back looking for more.

Sometimes I try something new and it backfires. Other times it sort of works. This time it worked amazingly well! Ferric chloride is the best. I popped this baby in some FrCh over dinner and presto, a beautifully etched blade. It is exactly the effect I wanted.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.” Robert Frost

Try this:
When some one asks you how your day is going reply seriously with a statement like “awesome” or “outstanding, full of intrigue and adventure”. Just the fact that you didn’t say “ok” will catch people off guard. No one wants to hear about your bad day so they expect an “ok. How’re you?” Tell them your day was fucking epic and they’ll believe you. Do it every day and they’ll think you have the best damn life regardless of your situation. 

Confidence and self image are projected. They aren’t real things. You make them real. Decide what you want to be and start now.
