Re: My GHB

Great post Jansman and I love that it reflects real day-to-day situations rather than TEOTWAWKI zombie apocalypse. Just trying to think about when I've used EDC for mundane occasions: most ppl in the office know that I'll have painkillers. I've used SAK tweezers to prise a guy's bankcard out of an A...

Re: Feeding the masses

This is a really interesting discussion. As a contribution, Simon Fairlie of The Land magazine reckons Britain could feed itself, theoretically. However the changes in land use and diet are so profound as to make it almost unthinkable. This is also only a discussion on production, not on processing ...

Re: Real water problems

Three litres per day is very little for over a year. Sphere humanitarian standards specify 15l per person per day for cooking, drinking and sanitation. Sanitation could go in the short term but not the long term.

Re: Boil in the bags meals

They're nice enough but small portions - ok if you're not that active but if you were walking all day I think you'd want something more robust. Our local Asian shop does lots of b-i-t-b curries and they go well with a pack of Uncle Ben's. Quite salty though, which again could be good if you were ver...

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

Absolutely sincere. Won't be very nice in gin though, but great in rice, chicken and as a condiment. New discovery for me. Belazu do a jar which is pricey, I noticed our local Asda does a cheaper version which I haven't tried yet.

Re: Tiny garden growing

Loads of time to get more French beans in. Dwarf French beans are dead easy, need almost no looking after, and very productive. I sometimes direct sow after harvesting spuds. If the weather stays good we get a crop, if not I just cut it down for green manure. Get some more in.

Re: Wearing a lanyard while driving

Side note - I see a lot of cyclists wearing heavy chains and padlocks across the chest and over one shoulder, or around their waist. The damage they would cause in an accident would be horrific - imagine a shunt when you land with your full body weight on a small piece of steel.
