Why is it that no one told me

that building an AR lower is so g*dd*mn easy? I realize that most sources say it’s accessible to anyone with modest mechanical skills. But I just didn’t understand how ridiculously simple it is. I mean, the lower goes together easier than some Lego projects I’ve done with my daughter. To think I’ve ...

They're expensive too, but I guarantee you someone breaking into your vehicle isn't likely to be interested in Attends. :lol:

Re: greetings from england

Welcome Neil. All of those pictures are exquisite, but I'm seriously loving the second design and the last one. Everyone, you heard it from me first: that second picture, the crowd of zombies, would make awesome gift wrapping paper. Don't be giving that art away Neil; copyright those images and some...

Re: Hello All

Very nice work! I'm lovin' that clown zombie (Pigo the Clown) because it brings back such fond memories of The Dark Carnival campaign from Left 4 Dead 2. Ah, memories: the dried up motel pool filled with zombies and all those gas cans conveniently sitting close by. The way Nick's white suit looks un...

Great news! I've discovered a workaround for ZS's draconian 1 post per 2 hour limit! If you immediately follow a post with another, in the same thread, with the exact same text, except REVERSED, it re-sets your post count to zero. So post away!

Re: How can you afford to prep?

I am interested in how you guys can afford to be a prepper? What I mean by this is are there any special behaviors that you guys practice, for example do you go to yard sales to buy equipment? Do you go to swap meets to sell some goods in order to make a little bit of side money that you can spend ...

obscurely intellectual Cormac McCarthy is a lot of things, but I never thought this was one of them. I mean this should be an indication of how accessible he is. Umberto Eco, yes.

Re: Advice for a gardening noob?

If it's your first time, don't start too big. It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the weeding if you start with a big plot. Plus if you have to buy soil and manure, a small plot won't cost as much. I started with a raised bed garden made with 3 2x6's. Cut one in half, knocked to gether a 4x8 frame...

Let me stress that again. In the US the new normal is divorce and broken homes. This results in some serious challenges to parenting. Most commonly the man leaves the home and there is no male influence for raising the kids. Often times this is when the kids need good parents the most. Sometimes th...
