Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Hanjin, like other shipping giants, has struggled with overcapacity brought about in part from a massive ship-building boom. Hmm. They should expand their clients to include island-based nations. There's a whole lot of Pacific nations who could use some emergency transport and housing for their cit...

The Hellenic Parliament has passed the new, tougher bailout measures. It remains to be seen whether Germany will agree to the bailout money needed, or for how long Alexis Tsipras will be Prime Minister.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

And by the way, before anyone starts thinking Germany is sitting pretty with their own money, the German government told Heckler and Koch that they weren't interested in any more G36 rifles from that company. Backstory: Heckler and Koch is a gun company, and they're the sole supplier of the G36 rifl...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Not just at the top, but pretty much essential to a "minimum" tool set. You can even fold it up and use it as a makeshift hammer.

Re: Berkley Water Filters

A very worthwhile piece of gear, Berkey filters are. Unfortunately they're around $100 per filter, and most Berkey systems need at least two to function. They also sell arsenic filters for around $50 that screw onto the bottom of the Black Berkey filter. Attach both and you'll have some of the clean...

Minimize or halt drug consumption, including alcohol, marijuana and tobacco. Always wash your hands before eating...
