I scrounged a piece of 1/8" copper mesh about 8"w x 60" long from the scrap bin the other day. Other than it's obvious scrap value, is there anything I can use it for/turn it into that is survival related?? I thought about just making a couple small cell phone sized boxes and selling them as mini-faraday cages for your Iphone... gotta capitalize on the fearmongering once in a while.

Make a curved reflector about 10" x 14" to put behind your cellphone to boost signals in weak areas.

Approximate a parabola when you shape it and talk thru the screen.

Works great.

Just in case somebody thinks this is a good idea: copper is poisonous when you use it as a pipe, bole, bong, or anything else you might inhale while heating up the copper.

That"s kind of funny. Like smoking crack isn't!

And smoking crack isn't?..

Report from Wiki on crack cocaine
May I point out section Inhalation.


A small piece of clean heavy copper or occasionally stainless steel scouring pad – often called a "brillo" (actual Brillo pads contain soap, and are not used), or "chore", named for Chore Boy brand copper scouring pads, – serves as a reduction base and flow modulator in which the "rock" can be melted and boiled to vapor.


Thank God that you're looking out for the crackheads. I'm sure they've taken note of your concern...
