Re: "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" -- AWESOME!!!!!!

Mine was somewhere between a baguette and a ciabatta... Hrm, interesting. I think I'll give it another go, then, lateron. I'll bake it slightly shorter (my oven seems a wee bit more powerful than its temperature buttons indicate; must be the enriched uranium I placed in the cooking drawer) and with...

Re: "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" -- AWESOME!!!!!!

Minor necro: Just tried this out for the second time and for some reason, my bread, on both occassions, has come out pretty much like a ciabatta. Now there's nothing wrong with yummy ciabatta bread, but I'm just wondering: is it supposed to be like that? Because the bread I saw here on the pictures ...

Re: So my friend Gary got shot last night.

1) Not all street hookers are bad people, whatever other faults they may have. 2) Anyone who says a 9mm won't penetrate a car body is full of shit. 3) First aid kits should include more than band aids and aspirin. Gary might have bled out if he haddn't gotten to the hospital. 4) Situational awarene...

Re: Real-life short-term bug-out from Chez SMoAF

Handcrank radio playing loudly to keep you up to date on weather while you are taking the shower especially might have been a wise precaution though. Also, for what it's worth I think you made a good call with bugging out, but I also think I would have waited until the storm system was done with th...

Re: Being in command during an emergency

If people for whatever reason do not follow your leadership in everyday life, they will also probably not follow it in an emergency or in a collapse. I have to agree with this. People are hierarchical social animals. Most of us don't really want to be in charge. When someone tries to take charge of...

Re: Mall Shooting Netherlands

Yes, automatic guns are illegal in The Netherlands, in addition to folding stocks and barrels shorter than 30cm. However, it would be faily easy to buy an illegal full-auto trigger online and put it in a legal semi-automatic gun. Huh, I didn't know that. Thought once you got the license you could c...

Re: Mall Shooting Netherlands

Automatic firearms are highly difficult to obtain, but are available to some degree... ...So in all, this must've been an illegal firearm. And on that note; reports have indicated he both had a fully automatic weapon as well as a pistol. The latter was used to commit suicide. I find it very hard to...

Re: Mall Shooting Netherlands

Not likely military unless this report is wrong: Investigators were trying to determine the shooter's identity, the mayor said. Eyewitnesses said he had long blond hair, appeared to be about 25 years old, and wore a leather jacket with camouflage pants. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42508543/ns/world...

Oh goodie: The man was known with police, so far presumably not former military (thank god) and the Prosecution's office is certain it was only 1 man. Bomb squad is also present, presumably checking a suspicious package nearby and even though, according to official sources, there's only one man, thr...

Interesting: Dutch media are reporting that the Minister of Defence will soon approve to station Dutch marines aboard Dutch merchant vessels.
