Re: Sincerity Ace Disaster

This isn't good. Despite the cars having only a gallon of gas in the tank, any significant fire will cause the tires to ignite fill the decks with smoke. Since commercial ships have minimal manning, the fire fighting is likely automated. Navy ships use sea water but I suspect Nissan might have a Hal...

Re: good starter tool set for home and auto use ?

If you are asking what kind of tools to get, you are actually looking for two distinct sets as they are two very different tasks. Basically a mechanical tools set and a carpentry/electrical/plumbing set. I have not worked under the hood of a car for 40 years, but I’m getting back into it. I found th...

The Santa Clarita Diet

How have we not mentioned this before. Three seasons of this Netflix series. Drew Barrimore and her hubby are realtors. She gets sick and and develops an appetite for human flesh. It is a comedy with guest stars Nathan Fillion, Patton Oswald and Andy Richter. It really hits its stride by episode 5. ...

Tom McElroy Wild Survival

Wow, this is an impressive series about natural survival skills found on YouTube. I watched him survive in the Sonoran desert with just a T-shirt and shorts on. When he finished he had woven basket, fired a clay pot to carry water and woven a pair sandals to walk out in. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Night of The Living Deb

Amazon Prime has this little ZomRomCom from 2015. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/91s9TezWJdL._SY445_.jpg It is an uneven comedy but had some jokes that made be laugh. A few plot twists caught me by surprise. The lead actress is petite in the extreme and several of the supporting ch...

The Wave

Netflix is showing this Norwegian disaster flick about a massive rock slide into a fiord that wipes out a scenic village. Typical Jaws ignore the warnings, it's tourist season. Nice digital wave and practical water effects. It is dubbed into standard English so it has a weird Toho Studios Godzilla v...

Down Memory Lane: Where Have All the People Gone

I first saw this as a kid on the ABC movie of the week. It stars the guy everyone wants to have next to them in a disaster, Peter Graves. It is a pretty simple PAW movie. Massive solar flares make people sick and ultimately turn them in to piles of Comet scouring powder. Look for a young Kathleen Qu...

Re: When will The Big One hit New Madrid Seismic Zone?

My theory is that it's due to ice melt. As the ice in polar regions melts and flows back to the various seas that represents a tremendous weight shift on the tectonic plates. Think of it this way... You know how a boat shifts when you step on/off because of your weight? Okay, the boat is the tecton...

for eye glasses I hardly ever throw any out, every time I have new glasses I store the old ones amongst my prepping supplies, you never know when you'll need spare ones post SHTF.
When I switched to bifocals, I had all my prior frames updated for about $30 each.

Amazon Prime seems to be running a mini International ZPAW Film Festival. Not to be confused with the hilarious Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel comedy about Hell on Earth, this is an Italian zombie movie. This is about 2/3 tense psychological thriller and 1/3 splatter fest. Let's just say we meet a privile...
