  1. I remember not why it was so, but as a kid I was deathly afraid to touch my father's guns without permission...remember standing in the hall staring up at them but not even thinking of touching them. I'm sure the lesson was taught with a belt...but it not the belt I remember, just the lesson....
  2. Sorry to hear that! I've been gone (busy) along time so I get it totally, happy your 6.....don't take any wooden good...don't do anything I wouldn't do...good luck....all those old cliches.
  3. We had 100% eclipse here and it was impressive especially to my 9 year olds, the eerie darkness, the odd behavior of the animals,the ring around the sun....and knowing that it was a very rare thing to share.
  4. Welcome! There are many great posts buried here, just look around and enjoy.....The first step to preparedness is understanding it doesn't come in a box delivered by Amazon, it is a mind set. You start thinking about the "cushion" in the things that allow you are yours to THRIVE ( yeah not just survive). Don't run your gas tank down to empty and fill it in the morning, don't let the cupboard get down to where you need to go to the for next week, then start shopping for two weeks from now...then a month. Remember the rule of three you are three from dying....three minutes without air, three days without water, three weeks without food, three months without companionship. Start slow...imagine that you are cut off from the world entirely, secure 24 hrs, then 48hrs then 72hrs. Look at where you are in the world and decide the most likely SHTF and prepare for that (flood, hurricane, blizzard....etc.). Skills are cheaper, lighter and harder to lose than gear so be sure to "stockpile" them as well as the materials.....
  5. Comradary on Internet forums fountain soda cold beer flushing toilets hot showers....without time limits... karaoke bars Carry out pizza the kids going to school 8 hrs a day Sports Illustrated swim suit edition cold chocolate milk Rallys fries
  6. Well I am upset! I was promised that the BIG one would split California away from the main land! So we can turn it into a giant penal colony and not have to deal with the liberal slime it breeds.....
  7. ...often though we see these odds differently on a personal level...two of the three friends of my dad that I was named after were killed by seat belts....two of my children are autistic and up on the vaccinations (it's the law in that you can NOT sent them to school without them)....assaults are up because of the growing number of things that constitute assault, from mis-speaking gender, to things that would never be reported 50 yrs ago like punching a guy for calling your wife a vulgar name, or a third grader getting in a fight on the playground. Yes math plays a HUGE part in all of this...hell there is a "science" of it ( correct likes it but it doesn't look right....) used by insurance companies, city planners and the like, both for our good and to further agendas not in our best interests....both with real data and "cooked books". The only truths we can see or believe are the ones that we can reconcile with our own experiences, like the goverment doesn't have the right to force a medical procedure on us or our children nor do they have to right to decide my safety or risky behaviors.....something is poisoning our kids (body and mind) autism is growing exponentially, you can't send a PB&J in a kids lunch....can't say that the shots are to blame...can't say their not....but for sure vaccination has gone WAY beyond the classic killers and into big Phama profits sometime ago
  8. ..I will add a good solid two wheeled cart. Makes MANY things easier from hauling water to mucking stalls (some of that soap between these jobs would be a good idea) when you don't have/can't afford to use gas for the truck....if you see an old tool and you don't have one you might want to it...and another like it.
  9. They do have Alice and Molle II, both surplus and replicas
  10. ....." You the, the bomb!" A friendly conversation in the West....but a deadly arguement in the Middle East....
  11. This would be awesome for frog, gar, carp....those damn neighbor kids breaking into your yard skinny dipping in your pool....etc
  12. For years (after an attempted carjacking) I carried a piece of scrap wire about 20" long in my truck....25pr copperclad burial....just kept forgetting to throw it away.......
  13. ....aside from the fact that most guys wouldn't think beyond a few condoms that were all still connected
  14. Just figured that out when I looked up "iron grip"....this combo of condoms...that much Viagra, the warming KY, the handy wipe,and the oral dam leads meh to think that this kit is a woman's kit....if it only had a spare pair of panties I'm be sure.....
  15. Only three condoms! ....short night...also needs a couple of consent forms with one of those short golf pencils.... .....and breath mints. also KY comes in single use packs....
