Speaking of Survival

Stuff like THIS scares the heck out of me. Almost as bad as Zombies

Significant Coronal Mass Ejection or a Nork EMP in the troposphere or what have you.  All BAD-bad.  And blogging would discontinue for some time. 

If it happened today some of you readers would die of exposure this winter.  Others would starve by summer.  Those like me that work with computers for a living won't be anymore.  And we'll run the risk of heart attacks from the increase physical activity when we turn to stoop labor to try to get by.  Frank might be able to plant plenty of crop because farms would get high priority on fuel and seed this Spring, but by the fall will fuel still be there to get his harvesters going?  And if it is will the fuel be there to get the corn and soybeans to me to eat all the way out here on the East Coast?  And does anyone have a recipe for soybeans?  I have no idea how to prepare them for eating.

Don't forget Meteor impacts.

Just prepare for as much as you can. And set aside one last bullet.

There must be a home-grown recipe for tofu out there? Humans can't process soybeans, because, unlike cattle, they don't have multiple stomachs. It is excellent protein, if you aren't allergic to it.

I've been reading your blog for quite some time, and I'm surprised that you haven't mentioned this. It seems right up your alley.

EMP leads to Zombies, short term.


Consider using a 'Galvanized trash can' as a 'Faraday cage'.

That way, you can retain some electronics:
Solar Charger
Rechargeable Batteries
Various devices from EOtech, ITT, etc

Easier to fight Zombies, if some of the toys still work.

Ooo, first I heard O-T.

A Faraday cage would hopefully also protect against a North Korean EMP blast too...

Here's the trailer that really piqued my interest:

Check it out if you've got 4 minutes.

I don't believe soybeans CAN be processed into food. Only hippies believe otherwise.
