Archaic Technology

  I have recently been attempting to seek out and learn more about technologies that have fallen by the wayside, been swept under the rug, or are simply not widely known by the general population. NEW and OLD!

  I thought in an effort to bring some knowledge to me I would try it out as a group here on AoM. There seems to be a wide knowledge base here, from a pretty diverse group of people. Some of you must have some "Remember when...?" knowledge passed down from fathers and Grandfathers.

  Do you know of, or have you heard of, are you privy to any type of information that fits this description? Please, share it with everyone. This can be any type of technology at all ie fuel energy, farming techniques, gardening, flying, math, education, etc. The possibilities are endless. I mean anything that has been altered, changed, bastardized, watered down, intentionally hidden, mangled with false information, out lived or surpassed by competing technologies, or simply forgotten because it's usefulness fell out of date, or even was considered too "crazy" by the establishment of the times.

   Feel free to include individuals and personalities, futurists and "mad scientist" type ideas that were introduced and never saw the light of day. 

  I think this could be very entertaining, fun and maybe even a little educational.

I have seen kiddos who could not open a can of food when the power went out.

One of the wiser things to have on your key chain.

With over 15 million model-Ts made and as many as 1 million still in existence you just might have the opportunity to show off your manly knowledge by being able to start and drive one of these classic cars.

There has been earlier information on wood gasifiers and biodiesel here but waste oil diesel is another option:  http://www.wasteoildiesel.com/

I just wanted to cache this brilliant and brutally simple foxhole radio design.

This might be the cleverest "portable" crystal radio that I have ever seen.
