Re: used my first aid and other skills (not happy ending)

Thanks for sharing. I know you feel terrible about her passing but try to take comfort knowing that you did all you could. I think from every bad situation we can learn new lessons and new things about ourselves that we never knew we could be capable of, which you did. Heal up and I hope you feel be...

Re: Occupy Wall Street is scheduled to picket my work tomorr

Rent some ginormous speakers and blast Slayer all day. Hippies hate Slayer.... But really, as others have said bring a camera to protect yourself if something happens. Also, if your job requires a suit and tie, that could make you stand out and draw the ire of some in the crowd. If possible dress ca...

Re: Detecting Life

I think it may be possible to sense someone, but you have to be paying attention to whats going on around you. And when hollowpoint26 was doing that ride along, him and the leo knew what to expect when they got there, so mabey there was nothing to "sense" when he was in that house. I could be wrong,...

Re: Are you including Life Insurance in your preps?

I agree with Paladin,not to plan for your death when you have family is selfish. A good friend of mine sold insurance for a while. He told me of a husband and wife who came into his office to buy life insurance.The husband didn't want to,but his wife dragged him along anyways. My buddy told me that ...

How long does the Keurig take to make a cup? Do yo...

Keurig coffe makers. They have hundreds of "k-cups" choices. They are single serve.No filter to throw out,no mess.If by chance the flavor you like isn't in a k-cup,they make a filter that you install and you add your coffee. They also make tea and hot chocolate. I got my keruig two years ago for Chr...
