Caught outside when the bombs begin to fall. Manage to take refuge in some caver or underground facility, kinda like the kids in Little Lamplight. Food supplies run short and you have to venture out in the first year.

Re: Free House! (renovation/refit log)

I really got to stick up for a few shows on both DIY and Home and Garden networks. I understand that Villa ran afoul of code, though I only know about this second hand as I never followed his show. All the shows I watch on a regular basis are very responsible contractors. Regularly covering and disc...

Re: Free House! (renovation/refit log)

Just an of the wall suggestion. Theres quite a few Do It Yourself shows here in the states where they come in and renovate a room or a section of a house. Bath Tastic, Kitchen Impossible, etc. Check out DIY Network. If there are any shows in your area like that start writing letters and posting on t...

Re: Why do people think ammo will disappear?

I saw a show a few years ago that wasn't so much about prepping as making this guys farm self sufficient. Rather than buying an auto type gun and loading up on ammo, he bought a muzzle loader and made his own gun powder. It's very doable. If I remember where I saw it I'll post back. ETA: I believe h...

How about an airtight vault? Or how about locked in a mayonnaise jar under Funk and Wagnall's porch? (a joke for...

Re: World War Z movie - Brad Pitt and Paramount! W000T!

I watched the movie then read the book (with a few years in between). I don't consider them to be related. Like, at all. The movie was good for what it was, a goofy bit of sci-fi kitsch with lots of action, but it just happens to share the same name as a well written sci-fi book by Heinlein. That's...

Re: Quick, defend yourself: What do you have on hand RIGHT n

I have an 8 inch dagger that I keep on my desk as a letter opener.

Out on a job site one day and the kids were giving me shit. I looked down at my tool belt and said, "You do realize that I have like 14 weapons on me right now?"

I'd like to recommend as an alternative for human use, Crisco shortening. It doesn't clog your pores and is digestible. I've seen it successfully used to treat psoriasis also.

Great rig with great potential. I used to have a 66 Ford breadbox and I loved it. It was also an ex Bell Systems van, which I'm guessing yours is based on that dark green (mine was the same color underneath). The fully contained dog house is a great convenience. On winter days when you want the cab ...

Re: How to navigate in the city without a map or GPS

The best/fastest way to really "get to know" an area is to get a job delivering pizza. In 2-3 months you will know the area very well including back roads & side streets. This can help a lot when trying to get around blockages. Even without a PAW it helps you navigate around traffic jams, accidents...

ACTUALLY......The county I live in, even numbers are East and North but the next county over it's exactly the opposite.

Here's one... AFAIK avenues run north / south and streets run east / west. At least that applies around here.

Yeah, I couldn't imagine a popular mod like that getting dropped so I had to go look. Theres 6 pages of mods specifically made to work with FOOK and buried somewhere in there is the main page. Google got me to it much quicker.
