Who Else Wants to Make Their Own Ammo Can Speaker Box For Cheap?

And best of all… you probably have most the stuff sitting around your house.

You might have an old ammo can box laying around or you can easily get your hands on one from a army navy store. Here’s a cool DIY to turn an old .50 cal ammo can into a portable ammo can boom box.

Don’t have a .50 cal ammo can? You can get surplus .50 cal ammo cans online and at most surplus stores for cheap, the rest of the parts needed to complete the project shouldn’t be more than $50 or so.

Most of these materials can be purchased locally, but I chose to get some of the items online to cut down on costs.

1.  One .50 caliber ammo box http://www.joesarmynavyonline.com/servlet/Detail?no=5984

Australia is Dropping Vegetables From Choppers to Feed Wildlife Starved by Fires

Australia has been going through some tough time with forest fires spreading all over the country and causing a severe loss of wildlife. In areas where the fire has stopped burning, the remaining animals are still struggling to find food and survive. Luckily, Australians have found an ingenious way to help animals in these hard times and started a rescue program that involves food dropped from helicopters.
Among the most affected are the wallabies and since they are left without their natural habitat, finding food is extremely hard for them. So, now the wallabies are showered with carrots and sweet potatoes that are being dropped from helicopters, this way staying safe and undisturbed. Of course, this is only a temporary solution but one that solves a major issue and ensures the survival of this species.
A lot of other animals are in danger of going extinct in Australia, so there is still a lot of work to do and everyone can get help by donating to organizations such as The World Wildlife Federation – Bushfire Emergency Fund, World Animal Protection, Animals Australia or WIRES Wildlife Rescue.

In New South Wales, thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potatoes are being dropped by planes and helicopters in fire-affected areas to help wildlife. (EPA-EFE/Shutterstock)

Life Finds A Way: Pictures After The Australian Bushfires

Humans don’t appreciate nature to its fullest, and in many cases, the beauty offered by Earth is taken for granted. Pollution and climate change are major issues in our times, and they have severe repercussions, but nature somehow always finds a way to recover.
The same thing applies to Australia’s forests, the might survivors of months of terrible bush fires that left the country mourning. Experts suspect that the bush won’t fully recover to its previous state, but signs of animals returning have been more than promising.
Thanks to years of evolution and arid climate, many Australian plants have adapted to the climate and learned how to protect their buds in case of high temperatures or even fire. This means that they will start to sprout soon and can even find nutrients in ash.
Pictures of green trees and plants among the ashes are circulating the Internet and they are once again proof that life is cyclic, and nature can recover after experiencing a traumatic event.
Hopefully, soon there will be more and more pictures like these, filled with hope and wildlife will return too to the Australian bush.
