Very topical Dude

These are becoming popular........

The debate seems to centre around the time it takes to achieve pay back on the investment.

Devices that use USB charging are really convenient, the last torch I bought for example

grid down from EMP is intriguing.

i just worked on a project that was concerned with that very thing - all i can say about that is China is going to have some surprises if they try it on us, but so will we, as a population. anyone who thinks the Chinese government is out of control needs to go over there and live with the Chinese, but that's just my opinion. we aren't far behind them, as society breaks down. people are out of control - that's the opposite of self reliance.

what venerable-elder dude wrote was very good, and i don't say that because he is my father ...he gently brings some facts to light that should be accompanied by snaps, whistles, and kicks in the ass - when it comes to paying attention to basic refrigeration, the zeer pots are very good. - i expect to see them morph into a second generation where the evaporating element, currently water, is changed to something like alcohol from home brew, or maybe ammonia from urine. it will be interesting to see how fast folks will improve the system when there is no other way.

cameras weren't mentioned. one thing the safety sallies never see, is when you make a thing available, it becomes an entitlement, then it becomes a crutch, then it becomes necessary. - cops are an example of this as society loses the concept of responsibility, but so too are surveillance cameras; what does this suggest? well, i am not a betting man, but i would gamble my left nut that the reaction to grid down by the criminals and other entitlement types will immediately go through an inner mental deliberation for about an hour before they decide that they need to secure everything that they want right damn now, by any means possible - i expect to see pulses of looting, more profound than usual and almost instantly after the event, in lieu of a couple days that are normally projected after such an initiation.

who knows. glad i don't care. wish i could say why.

there are a lot of books that cover skill sets for similar situations - i can't recall reading any of them - but i have read a lot of stuff on physics, chemistry, building and construction, and wooing women cough - How to Make Friends and Influence Dumbshits, i mean....


always cover the fundamentals, and the particulars will fall in place.

i don't think grid down is going to happen, but i intend to enjoy myself thoroughly if it happens.


good article, as usual.

 Particularly for civilian populations I reckon, and especially if there was no warning. Undecided

Dude DOES fight paparazzi regularly -- that's why he lists his location as a "remote backcountry location in the middle of nowhere."
