Re: For the Prepper who has everything

Only a mere 8.5 million... Sadly someone like Black Water or Academi will buy it and probably use it. While I would have happily worn the cool helmet and made zooming noises.

Wow. A uncomfortable movie that makes you feel anxious and will cost a piece of my soul to watch. How could one refuse?
It's like eating the cinnamon roll pancakes at The Cheesecake Factory, medically inadvisable, but a perverse badge of pride.

Re: Algae Preps

The only advice I'm seeing to avoid this after going into a lake, is to avoid licking yourself and shower immediately. I guess this means letting dogs into a lake isn't a great idea.

That is a scary missile. I guess the surprise is that is has a longer range than we realized.
