Re: News in the battle with MRSA

"discovered novel antivirulence drugs that, without killing the bacteria, render Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Streptococcus pyogenes, commonly referred to as strep, harmless" The harm that comes from MRSA etc is not the actual infection. It's in every hospital and tends to ...

Re: Where do you draw the line? (Extended families)

In my case, bugging out from a local disaster, no matter how bad, would be career suicide... does anyone know what happened to the public safety personnel who fled New Orleans after Katrina? I'm actually curious, now that I think about it... But given a disaster of sufficient magnitude, we're talki...

I know form holidays there that the farm is capable of housing my immediate family (step family included) for any extended amount of time with minimum discomfort. So my question is, at what point do you draw the line in deciding who stays or goes? A...

That looks so damned good. I wasn't paying a lot of attention until I saw the photos of seared meat and then doused in broth. Damn man that looks so good. Question though, were there any parts that would be chewy or stringy? The western appetite has some amount less tolerance for game meat, and it l...

For me, it is a matter of who will work or not. Food for the short term could be hard, but long term it could be beneficial to have a few extra hands to produce more.

How do you cook your fish?

Watching the first season of Good Eats and got to the fish episode called "Hook, Line, and Dinner." I noticed something tonight about pretty much every cooking show I've ever seen about how to cook fish - the first thing the host says is "if it smells like fish it isn't fresh"; the second thing they...

Re: Electric weapons - suggestions

It's a weird situation. Before the new law, nobody was allowed to carry electrics except current and former LEO's and ex military, and everyone was allowed to carry firearms as long as the weapon wasn't concealed or loaded. I'm not a handgun fan, and I can't really explain why - the barrels are alwa...

$500 is a lot - I'd recommend just keeping like - $10 in quarters, 2x$20's and $10 in singles in your bob - you really don't even need the twenty's but the singles and quarters would be awesome if you happened upon a vending machine that still works after you bug out

I support you and the idea of a groupwrite, but I am saddened that zs contributors are not usually predisposed to sustain a thread like this for long.

Re: Designated 'last person to leave'

It's a nice idea, but it isn't practical. When people are evacuating an area, they're all focused on their own selves and families.

I agree with the previous posts, the most important things you can carry on a long bike trip are all repair equipment. This isn't exactly geared toward bugging out but like any long trip you need to plan ahead. My list for let's say, a one week trip not including the necessities (food, water/filter/...
