+Jeremy van den Berg All I did was try to show you that 'fixing the cause' is not an option in the majority of cases. 41 million folks live in areas that are subject to flooding. It would seem to me that some of these devices would help those that live in those areas. Your simplistic comment 'could', in some cases be applied. Elsewhere, tragedy could be averted using these tools. Yes?
That's cool, can you keep that up for 10 hours? That's the cool thing about machines, you may be able to 'keep up' or even exceed BUT the machine will eventually run a human into the ground. Yes, human runs machine. Human gets tired and then... is replaced by a 'fresh' human.
The idea of a more permanent self deploying barrier is a great idea. It is less conspicuous (ie: more aesthetically pleasing) and functional up to a point (obvious height limitations). I just hope that a really bad rain does not create a "false flood" as the deployment section fills with water. If this occurs in a place with bicycle or vehicle traffic, there could be risk of damage or injury.
But like it states, this is for smaller, more common flash flooding, not the great flood that killed all but two of every species.
Really? Wow, you must be a very special human to not know the percentage of humans that live in flood prone areas. https://e360.yale.edu/digest/41-million-americans-live-in-flood-zones-three-times-the-fema-estimate-finds-new-study
Even though the water block has puncture resistance it can be punctured by a rock very easily before you put these down you have to prep the area and make sure there's no pointy rocks even if they're dull rocks they will puncture it
The flow defence seems like its a great possibility to be partially activated during heavy rains, as the water will fill the tank below it. I would like to know how the release valve is constructed to counter this.
Hey I know what you can do! Just make everyone dig out their front and back yards kinda deep, in addition to putting up sand bags, so the water might not go into their houses!! Then they won't have to keep mowing their lawns either, or buying new law mowers and leaf blowers, or pay gardeners...it'll save lots of money! (Yes I'm being facetious! Lol) Because we never should have built any houses, roads, cars, malls etc. We should have built only T&T!(Tower cities connected to maglev Trains! To save lives and to save THE EARTH FOR WILDLIFE! (Like The Jetsons, who only once that I saw touched the land, although they wrongly showed each person having their own individual house, which I don't like.....hmmm I wonder why the creators did that! Were they thinking of saving the earth? I doubt it.)
Yeah a lot of these things look like they would work. Until you actually know how real life situations go. You don't just throw these sealed berried on your front and back door and no water gets into your house. For 1 it can still seep through stucco or 2..... it can get into other areas like a floor level window sill, or through the garage door or seep between the floor wall stud plates etc. Oh and the Sand Bags? Yeah you can fill like 15 at once But probably takes 15 to 20 minutes for one person to install those sand bags, plus even if you needed them in a wet situation where the fuck you gonna find dry sand? Wet sand will not be very easy to fill those Sand bags.... Come on people real life situations are way different these Gimmicks are seriously dumb and kind of immature like they're now taking "invention Convention" ideas from 5th graders who have no clue.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
