Though there probably aren't too many on this forum that have to worry about this, there are some places (Australia, for one) where it's illegal to collect rain water for any use.

Now once the zombie's attack, I doubt they'll be handing out fines for buckets on the roof.

There is absolutely nothing scary about dogs. Don't worry about them. In fact, don't bother taking note of them at all.

Fuck going to the vet for your anti-biotics. Ask your doctor point blank, "Doc, I'd like to keep a few sets of broad spectrum anti-biotics on hand for emergencies and the like. Would you mind prescribing some?" I've yet to have a Dr. say no. Or, if you quite simply don't feel like dealing with a do...

I personally believe (which means this is IMHO) that a lot of the general allergy problems America has is because of vaccines. You don't see nearly the weight placed on vaccines in other nations as you see here, and similarly, you don't see nearly the allergies we have in the US. A friend of mine bi...

I like my Savage .22LR. It's a bolt-action semi-auto.

It didn't cost me nearly as much as $1k. Only thing I wish I had more of were clips. Need to see if I can find a source.

Two words: veterinary meds. In most places there's no documentation needed whatsoever to purchase them.

I've done a lot of book-research on the various sprays and read that OC, unlike the other sprays, forces certain physiological reactions that effect everyone equally, whereas some of the other types (like CS) are ineffective against some attackers. Was this a bunch of bull? Or are people mixing up t...

If I could find a flame-resistant BDU I'd be a truly happy camper.

Especially if it was available in subdued urban camo.

I'll agree that the BDU's are sturdier, and that's reason enough for me to go with the BDU's. But I also would like to be a bit closer to fire-proof.

Ham & cheese melt and a medium Powerade courtesy of my 10% discount at Arby's. That actually only amounts to a couple hundred calories and not a gigantic amount of fat.

Savage Arms .22LR semi-automatic rifle

100 rounds of ammo

Plan to pick up more ammo in the next couple weeks - a decent amount, actually, in light of rising ammo prices.

Definately need an inflatable sheep to "keep you company" at night. Plus it could double as a pillow. If you deflate it, you could use it like a tarp to provide shelter from rain. You could also use it to collect water. The possibilities of its use as a floatation device goes without saying, and it...
