Re: Do as I say, not as I do.

How the world has changed. Stopping to help a stranger in trouble is what you used do. It was so common when I was growing up, when we were alittle older and a good snow was heading in, my brother and I would hit the road in my Suburban. When we found someone that slide off the road, we'd stop and h...

Re: "100lb of potatoes in 4 sq ft"

***Bump*** Read through the thread. Interesting read. Apartment dweller here and am beginning to research how to grow some food if SHTF and I don't have to abandon my place. There is a good-sized concrete courtyard (24' wide) separating the buildings so there is very little soil area to use. Large c...

Re: ZS tree dwellers: I need palm tree trimming advice.

Prune off the lowest fronds first. Working around the tree to keep it even. One at a time until those touching your roof have been removed. Going for the look in the pic that Maldon007 is exactly what your looking for if you need to remove a lot of the fronds. Don't remove the "upright" fronds, thes...

Re: When not to convince someone to prep?

Some people that we think would be good partners for prepping could already be doing it, but their plans are to be "loners"...prepping for themselves and their family members only. Some "loners" can be pretty tight-lipped about any plans they have already made. Others that we think might be good to ...

A Tomahawk cruise missile with a W80 adjustable yield warhead (5 to 150 KT) would be a better choice. Easier and quicker to deploy then any of our other missile systems. Tomahawks could be launched by any number of military platforms; aircraft, ships, subs, mobile land vehicles. Also, the U.S. maint...

Re: What would you do if there was a limited nuclear exchange?

Check out the book by Whitney Strieber and James Kunetka called "Warday" (1983). Although I thought the story was a little 'soft' in damage and how the U.S. fared (also how our "friends" reacted and came to our "aid"), I found it a really interesting read. Gets the mind thinking.

You asked people to "pick it apart", and some did.
If the replies weren't what you wanted, maybe you needed to ask the question in a different way?
