Re: PAW Closet *UPDATED*

Been a long time since I've been around. I think my last login you were posting pics of this while it was a work in progress. Gotta say you have an amazing and inspiring setup! though I personally would triple the bottled water. Even with the basement barrel supply. However very well done!

Re: The Colony on Discovery

Some random thoughts..... Allison (The nurse) refused to treat the handyman when he got injured in a very dirty area because of her pride? That is a very dangerous individual, imagine being shot and having her as a nurse! Leilani (martial arts chick) While others were fortifying the warehouse and sc...

I have seen the dollar tree stores lowering selection slightly and selling reduced versions of prior products. My personal sightings. -C & D cell batteries come in 3 packs instead of 4 and are noticeably weaker(even for dollar store batteries) -AA & AAA batteries starting to come in double and four ...

Re: Storage Disaster

I store any rice I buy in an extra plastic bag then place it in a storage bucket from home depot. The extra bag insures that anything that may hatch inside the package will not spread to the other packages and the bucket is highly resistant to the small mice that sometimes make it inside the garage....

Re: Kerosene Storage and Viability

From what I have read, kerosene can last up to ten years if stored in a cool place. If I remember correctly, it was an article talking about the extremely low life span of gas(3-5months untreated & up to a year if treated with stabil)

Re: Half of coastal dwellers don't have hurricane plan

What angers me is that should another hurricane hit, the people that refuse to evacuate and refuse to prepare will manage to get themselves on the news with their sob stories, complaining on how the government failed to save them.

http://www.sigma-team.net/site-news/main-news/go-zombies-go.html I enjoyed this game very much! Weapons, upgrades,armors,special items, and a little stat building.

I have heard of this. Awhile back there was a man going under some surgery where they had to shut off his brain for a part of it. What made it odd is that the man was able to recall what doctors had said during those minutes while he had no brain activity.
