Re: Apartment "Farming"

I have a decent backyard, but in many ways have to treat it as a small space because of the fact it slopes steeply down and I don't have the funds to terrace it at this time. I use a lot of containers along with my small raised bed. I think containers and vertical gardening could get you a decent am...

Re: The Ongoing Man Made Opiod Catastrophe

NT, I very much understand your perspective. One of my Aunts almost died in a terrible car crash when she was young and so has constant chronic pain. She did well on low dose opiods and was able to function well. The new meds she is on knock her on her ass way more than her others did but are "non-n...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

God, not much to say other than this is just so terrible. Even as someone who works in mental health, sometimes with violent people, it's still hard to fathom why someone would plan such a horrific crime against complete strangers for no other purpose than to cause pain. They can try to excuse it fo...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Didn't feel great for most of the day, mentally or physically. But, later in the day I got out (even if it was rainy and cold) and moved the onion sets that are already sprouting to a better position in the garden and shifted a bunch of baby strawberry plants. I have a bunch of them now as each mama...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Isn't huge, but getting rid of some junk from my house. I know that prepping tends to go by the Ferengi Rules of Acquistion, but I think getting rid of extraneous stuff will make it easier and more efficient to reach other other masses of stuff that I really need. Even eyeing getting rid of some of ...

Re: What's your favorite non-prep prep item?

I don't have super deep food preps at the moment as finances and space honestly just don't allow it. That being said, I habitually keep multiple bottles of Frank's, Soy Sauce, Sriracha, and Worcestershire sauce on the shelf. I never like to run out. Also olives and various pickled items (beets, okra...

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

Canticle is awesome and probably up at the top of my list of favorite books. My favorite sci-fi has always been more philosophical in nature, using the genre to reflect core human issues. To that end, my first recommendation is Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles. It and Canticle for Liebowitz are alw...

Re: Insect apocalypse

It is disturbing simply from a concern over the general ecosystem and how fast it is being altered. It is even more concerning when you think about the fact that Lepidoptera (Butterflies and Moths) and Hymenoptera (Ants, Bees, etc) are the primary pollinating species for the entire planet. I have no...

Re: You're at work. Things go bad. What would you do?

Good question. I had toyed with this idea before, but I don't think I have fleshed it out as much as I should upon consideration. There are a lot of variables to consider. If a tornado or earthquake (tornado more likely in my area) really messed stuff up while I was at work, I would be fine. I work ...

I can think of several. I could survive without them, but I'm not sure how much it would feel like living.
