Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

The reality of the on the ground situation reminds me of an old tale. Wiki: The parable of the blind men and an elephant originated in the ancient Indian subcontinent, from where it has been widely diffused. It is a story of a group of blind men who have never come across an elephant before and who ...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

From Fox News: Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick could lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington after sacrificing his life in the line of duty trying to fend off rioters who breached the building earlier this week. https://www.foxnews.com/us/capitol-police-officer-sicknick-lie-in-honor-...

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

Those are some great and well reasoned responses. I will add to them that I have a feeling my mags may not last as long, or function as well as my gun and that higher round count mags may be harder to get in future, whether by legislation or zombie invasion. When the lawless economic collapse hits i...

Re: Sunburn COMMENT Thread

I think these might be helpful comments. I was trying to fall asleep, counting sheep, and realized that the sheep must have taken that long walk to establish Haven from the overflow of the other seeded community. It just seems a long way/long time to travel with sheep that need to be feed and watere...

Thank you for the new chapters! The only Easter Egg that popped up for me was the robe that you can sleep in. I saw those in the Pillars of the Earth, but have not noticed them elsewhere. I was really hoping for a real cave of wonders with all sorts of tech. The way you have laid out the new civiliz...

Re: Yugo Tokarev refinish

I like it. If you want a challenge for gun #2 what about something in Der Still style. https://i.etsystatic.com/20988685/r/il/78e331/2081028655/il_570xN.2081028655_moq9.jpg How is that Der Stijl? Looks more like an homage to Tron, which never got its due. https://www.moviemarket.com/tron-legacy-506...

Re: *** How many of you purchased Potassium Iodide Pills?

Yeah, so along with my post in the North Korea Saber Missile Nuke Explosion Death thread I think this ten year old thread has a couple of good things to say about how potassium iodide can, and can't, help.

"Lead on, I follow".” And I keep thinking about what the cave of the Rangers will be like. There will be more metal maps, ma...

I decided to read some of your other stuff while I’m waiting. Yesterday I got done reading First Strike!. Now I’m reading Going Home. It looks like a terrific series.

Still, reading Sunburn’s Chapter Six would be nice.

Why do some countries have very few COVID-19 serious illnesses and deaths??

Some countries have drastically few COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. Is it geography, temperature, genetic differences, a higher percentage of younger citizens, early lockdowns, or, so far, is it just luck? This free article deftly delineates differing depths of deaths. https://www.nytimes.com/...
