Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

manacheck: Sorry so late responding.

The grease ants didn't seem to affect the flavor at all. My wife thought I was nuts.

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

Product: Armour Lard Best by date: DEC29 2019 Although this lard had over a year to go before not being "best", it became infested with gazillions of tiny grease ants. I didn't notice them, but my wife pointed them out. I normally use the lard to feed the cats - they are fed only cubed, raw chicken ...

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

Product: Cheap White Rice Consume by date: Before a significant percentage of ZS'rs were born I had stored some rice and other things back in '86, right after getting married. I had put everything in Used cookie tins, labelled and dated them, and sealed the lids with paraffin wax. They sat on a shel...

Re: A Word of Warning...Caution, Somewhat Graphic Images

I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this: Several times I have cut a finger badly and had it stitched up. They are always sensitive to cold after that and they don't feel right in that the sense of touch is messed up. Years after dealing with a finger or thumb that wasn't 100%, I would a...

Re: Estate buckshot

I bought 2 cases and then discovered that while they will fit into my promag drums for the Saiga, they won't freely come out again. The sad part is that they still rattle in the drum. They are only tight coming up with the rims staggered. I might be able to relieve the front of the mag where they ex...

Re: Phases of a national or worldwide SHTF.

The premise of an EMP is that civilian electronics are fried so cars and anything other than hand pumps don't work. Some mechanical work is required even to get pre-1980 cars running after EMP. The most common use for cars in Lights Out are rolling roadblocks used to trap the few vehicles running. ...

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

Anybody else here like the taste of spoiled goat milk? Years ago my son and I preferred it on our cereal to the fresh stuff. It had much richer flavor and a bit of a tang. You just had to strain it past the chunks. Would an account of human use of expired veterinary medicine violate forum rules?

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

About 3 months ago I found an action packer in the basement with food left over from some deer hunting trip or other. I found a six pack of Mike's Light Hard Lemonade, which I put in the fridge after discarding some other really gross stuff in the container. A few days later I came into the house re...

Re: Recent near-miss apocalyptic solar flare? Carrington-cl

The event on your link was large, and could have measured around 80 nanoteslas (nT). But that isn't hugely significant. It was also very wide in dispersal. Which although impressive - severely limits its 'power' when it gets to us. The Tesla is a unit of magnetic flux density, not of total magnetic...

Re: Recent near-miss apocalyptic solar flare? Carrington-cl

williaty, This flare was like an imaginary shotgun which fires a pattern 90 degrees wide. It shot about a quarter of the solar system with one shot. Maybe "God's Claymore" would be a better description Here is a video that gives an idea of the scale of this thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR9a...

Re: Recent near-miss apocalyptic solar flare? Carrington-cl

I don't think that Spaceweather.com intended to lie. I suspect that the "2 weeks ago" screw up in Bedard's article got everybody confused about when it actually happened. Dr. Phillips probably went back over the last two or three weeks and found nothing even resembling what was in the article. I'm g...

Re: Recent near-miss apocalyptic solar flare? Carrington-cl

From what I've read of the EMP commision's report to the legislature, we don't need to worry about the effects of solar EMP on small electronic devices. Solar EMP doesn't have the E1 high frequency component of a high altitude nuke. The solar pulse E3 component mainly affects things with really long...

Recent near-miss apocalyptic solar flare? Carrington-class

I hope I am doing this correctly as this is my first post. A week or so ago I was reading the forward to the novel,"EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots", by Jonathan Hollerman, when I came across a reference to an article in the Washington Examiner about a near miss of a massive solar flare. I wondered w...

Finally registered

I've been reading the forum posts for years and now want to contribute a bit. I have leaned toward preparedness for most of my life. Now things are starting to scare me and it is time to take it to the next level and start interacting with others.
