  1. If China is following the usual communist pattern, the numbers are 10x what they are reporting, maybe more.
  2. Coms will be out. Besides, is an emergency situation really the right time for us to be having one of our naughty video chats.
  3. Clearly, you do not understand the point of this post. We are not talking about what to do or read now in preparation for the future. That is for another thread. We are doing hard copy reference material that will be invaluable, in situ, when the time comes ^^^ THIS ^^^ Listen to the astute Unterhund. I do not disagree that folks should be prepared before the SHTF cough@Mrs. Peelcough...., but one can't prepare for everything or know everything. Can someone who read a paragraph on how to amputate a gangrenous limb two years ago rely on just memory when the time comes? Anyhoo, the post is about what you would throw in a box. It's your box, your life. Put in it whatever you desire. You win.
  4. For the purpose of this exercise, we will assume that electronics are not available. The computer died, just because it's a computer and they do that, or little Betty dropped the tablet in a toilet to wash it off, the dog ate your iphone, the solar charger fried itself.... Anything electronic is plan A, it has failed, and now we are going to plan B. Hard copy.
  5. In a SHTF situation, there is a very good chance that computers and electronics will be bricked. The only thing you can truly count on is actual printed books. Please, this is not a thread about Faraday cages, so don't go there, thank you. Let's say, as part of your prepper plan you rationed a box, a strong copy paper or file storage size box, for essential books and documents. What books would you put in the bug-out/bug-in box, four or five books that you believe are essential for a long term survival situation?
  6. My thoughts are, if a gun is designed specifically for 22lr, then just shoot 22lr. Anything else just adds complications and will be marginally functional. If you really wanna shoot those shorts and CBs, get yerself a lever gun More fun than two barrels of monkeys..
  7. Well, that's like saying something is better than nothing. If folks are scrambling for iffy N95 masks and wet bandanas when a pandemic hits, they are not prepared.
  8. They will shoot just fine, feeding is no problem because of tube mag, chambering is iffy. No danger, as long as you manually cycle the action. Have fun, right up to the point it misfeeds or FTEs and you have to break out the tool box to clear the jam.
  9. It don't matter one lick how many microns a mask can filter if you can't get a good seal. A secure seal around he perimeter is as important as the filtration specs.
  10. The Psychology Class Experiment It was a practical session in the psychology class. The professor showed a large cage with a male rat in it. The rat was in the middle of the cage. Then, the professor put a piece of cake on one side and a female rat on the other side. The male rat ran towards the cake and ate it. Then, the professor changed the cake and replaced it with some bread. The male rat ran towards the bread and ate it. This experiment went on with the professor changing the food each time. And each time, the male rat ran towards the food item and never towards the female rat. The professor said, "This experiment shows that food has the greatest attraction." Then, one of the students from the back rows said, "Sir, why don't you change the female rat? This one may be his wife!" The professor stood straight up, shook his head as he pointed at the student and said, "You get an A."
  11. Heard on FNC this am that most Walgreens in NYC are sold out of "medical masks". I wonder, when they restock, if there will be price gouging.
  12. Are you looking for a torque wrench to remove wheels, or put them back on. It would be very unusual to remove lug nuts with a torque wrench and breaker bar.
  13. True for Porche, MB, BMW, Audi. Not as true for VW. btw, a cursory search shows that the 2014 Jetta has a better than average rating for maintenance. The average for annual maintenance cost is around $600.00.
