Wood bums of the forties made do with just a 22lr. They are quiet, stealthy, and deadly. Even if I could afford an AR15 I would still have it chambered to a 22. Spraying the woods with lead is just wasteful and excuse for well placed shoots. You worr…

I just posted about this on another thread.

I have a BS in Food Science.

Canned food does not go bad on the pull date. That date gives an identifier, should something have to be recalled, as well as indication of when something should be replaced, but it doesn’t mean it’s no good the day or week after it expires.

Having said that, food degrades from the moment it is picked. It can be preserved to last longer, but it is constantly degrading, softening, darkening, losing vitamins, etc. The fats go rancid with time.

Have I eaten food past its due date? Yes. Do I eat things 5-10 years after? No. Whether it looks or tastes fine isn’t the issue. It’s whether the food still has much nutrition left in it. And that is on a continuum. From the time it is harvested on, the food is degrading. It may not make you sick. That doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

And, just as an example, about a year ago I got some gluten-free pasta out of my stores. It was well past the due date, but I used it anyway, because I figured–what could go bad with pasta? The next day I woke up with bloodshot, puffy eyes and other symptoms of having eaten something that wasn’t good for me. I’m pretty tuned in to how my body reacts to things (need to be after having celiac.) Twenty years ago I might not have noticed the reaction, but I did have a reaction, even though the pasta looked/tasted fine.

Sorry Anita, but when you are starving, you just want to make it till the next planting season.

This is why you keep a low profile. Try not to look to fat and this is a time to diet. Remember those hungry hordes will be dead with out water and shelter. HMMM, no tap water, no heat, no narcotics, and they have to walk to get to the next town. No food is the least of their troubles. :gunshooting:

pasted down from a old gent to Me. Lots of Vaseline thick cotton and wool socks. Better greasy feet than trench foot. damage to your legs and feet will not only hinder you but will stay with you for a life time. Full leg boots for rough areas, but realize, they are good protection for work NOT hiking.

Don’t bother. Large cities are already collapsing in on them selves. Like ancient Rome. The society of dependency is rotting from the inside. When one allows them selves to become reliant on another entity they lose the freedom of choice. This is what socialism is based on. You give to the lazy from the workers. This is not a help up but a press down. Keep the bleeding heart liberals away. If they believe in charity, let them do it with their own money not force me to do it with mine.

Each time I turn on the Tvee and hear a about some riot or terrible disaster I have to sit back and say “Hmmm, Two people died because they didn’t heed warnings. There are millions of Americans, Hmmm, there are no cures for stupidity, ignorance, or arrogance. Hmmm.” Then I turn off the BOOB TUBE, not wishing to be exposed to any BOOBish foolishness.

Ladies and Gents, You are Preppers, keep a low profile and avoid anything LOUD, ANNOYING, and STUPID. We hold one truth, survive beyond the ignorant, stupid and lazy. Asinine political views are a waste of time, funds, and resources. We have a constitution that gives them the Right to slit their own throats. Stick to prepping, you may have to fight a riot of them at your doorstep. If they aren’t afraid to die, I won’t be afraid to protect myself and shoot. Vermin are in every shape and color all claiming they are right and you are wrong for keeping to ones self. DO NOT GET SUCKED IN!!

fresh fruitcake isn’t very good until it has been soaked with brandy or rum or both. It should sit for at least three months. Traditionally, fruit cake was made during the Autumn harvest when fruit was plentiful. Aging fruitcake greatly improves it’s flavor. Unfortunately most commercial fruitcakes are poorly lacking in flavor and aroma due to their quick to market approach.

It is strange but the Early English settlers claimed that the American Indian were lazy do nothing people. Still, they thrived and survived in a non-English society.
