"Get Ready!"

Comrades the National Freak-out is on the horizon,...get the hell ready!

While you can.


Uncle 2012 said... really I'm fine. I really am. The new meds are working great!

I see things clearly now.

It over, it all coming down, and I'm getting ready. Com'on falling empires are not nice places to be in.

Humm, now where can I get 50 pound drums of M&M's,..the ones with the nuts in'em.

Nuts are an excellent source of protein. Rice keeps for up to a year, and hard beans for two years.

Don't forget to stock up on pharmaceuticals. They might get hard to come by.

I just transplanted a dozen corn plants today, along with some green veggies.

OK Zaek, most people stock their bunkers for 6 months. Now you come up with items that keep for a year or two. The real problem is what Orlov has brought up, and that is what are you going to do in the 7th, or 13th or 25th month? You're fucked, and that is what Sidney is driving at. In fact, you'll be fucked long before your rice and beans rot.
I'd stick with the M&Ms Sid.

It's too bad Sidney has no access to a garden plot. That, as you will no doubt recall, is partly how Orlov says many Russians got through the collapse of the USSR. Keeping a well-stocked pantry against spot shortages of various kinds is another response to which he gives considerable importance. Otherwise - or better, additionally - one needs some kind of skills that people want or other stock in trade.

It's no good to say "we're fucked" and leave it at that. People have to get by somehow. When I said "We're on our own" in a prior post I didn't mean "Let's sit with our thumbs up our butts and bemoan our fate." I meant that since the clowns at the top are not going to help us, we'd best get our butts in gear and help ourselves before that option is foreclosed.

Zaek, I think Sidney is already raising rabbits on his veranda and getting some good recipes for cooking rats, cockroaches, cats and dogs in a solar oven on his rooftop.

"Then, all at once, through all the music, through all the sensible sounds of men building, attempting, comes the Dies Irae. And what is it? What does the trumpet sound? Up yours."

Hey dudes... we is never gonna run outta food in da city. i live off the deuce on da west side and i be livin on da tasty fruits of da pavement & gutters for years now.

you guys out dere planten corn is jez wasten ur time & energys.

insect larvae is da way ta go man! dont be a wuss. its free & no fucken sweat.

Zaek said...

Well if it comes to that Long Pig is the most plentiful comestible available, and far easier to find than grubs. But I haven't got my Morlock kitchen set ready yet.

Hey, I'll stick with the larvae and they are way-abundant in NYC. But that is not to diss H. G. Wells in any way since he called it pretty spot on.

You can click on my name for excellent cooking suggestions if you stick with your idea of surviving on Long Pig. You will even find Bob Arson's White Devil Dinky-Dao Mothafucka Bobbacoo Sauce to go with your meals. You must be more into Hairless Goat, I would just guess from your writing.

Too bad Toby Schneebaum had to die on us since I is sure he had some great advice on this which he gleaned while on his Fulbright in the 50s in Peru and, maybe to a lesser degree, later, among the Asmat.

But I will stick with the insects even though my neighbor has some great recipes for dog. He's Korean. Lotsa dogs around my hood. We ain't gonna starve!

Umm, I really don't eat bugs. At least not on purpose. There's plenty in processed foods.

Anyway yesterday I started my fire-escape garden. Lentils. They grow like crazy.

This is a pilot program. If they grow, fresh soil, they said it was fresh. If this works I'll get serious about it.

This plenty of ammo, and my self defense weapons I might make it through for the first year or so.

After this,...well.
