Re: Pens? Not even the apocalypse can kill paperwork!

A mechanical pencil is the way to go. I have had several of these all my working life. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31eRBzIYXjL._SY300_.jpg The leads do not dry up or leak and the thick .7mm lead is easy to write and read. http://www.amazon.com/Pentel-Mechanical-Pencil-Barrel-P207C/dp/B002...

Re: 3D Printers - Should You Consider One for Preps

I am looking at getting one. I already do 3d modeling and know most of the programs that are used. Just saving up the money for one of the smaller cheaper versions.

Wow, all I can say is some structural engineer is going to be losing their job for not properly inspecting the bridge if they are lucky.

Re: What would happen to the libraries in a PAW?

Well from a lot of cities closing their libraries and a lot of book stores closing, because most people get their books from online sources like amazon. Plus for the proper discussion here in the forums. I would say get your books now so you dont have to go looking for them after the paw.

Re: Is Height/Build important for Survival?

Survival comes in all sizes. Big and tall can lug the heavy things around, but short and fast can get in and out of places faster then big and tall guys.

But really, its all down to what a person knows and uses to survive.

Re: Most calories in a standard can: Roast Beef Hash

Roast beef or corned beef hash is tasty and can be mixed with rice or noodles if cooked right. I grew up eating corned or roast beef hash with eggs and cheese. I currently have 10 cans stashed in the kitchen for when i want something different to eat. Right next to the tins of sardines.
