What will disappear first?

Recommended Posts

moonpies were bomb too

 

I have hated moon pies for years. Never could stand the things. Last weekend my wife and i were in a small town at a coffee shop. They had moon pies on the desert list but they said they were heated. My wife begged me to taste the damn thing. I am in trouble now cuase i think they most have sprinkled crack on the thing and i am addicted after one bite. Now i might have to check into the betty ford clinic. Hi my name is "awake" and i am a moonie.

what if everything disappears except poptarts and twinkies. there will be nobody left to eat either one of them? ok ok ok, what if they came out with twinkie flavored poptarts?

 

I'd go into a diabetic coma but I'd go happy!

what will disappear first? civil rights, most likely. in a shtf situaation, the cops and Authorities will herd everyone into safety zones most likely and there will be mass starvation and worse. diseases like you never imagined ...practically over night, water filters will go away. and ammo for weapons will go quickly. see how long it takes walmart to be an armed camp

sounds like the FEMA camps that will pop up after shtf. stay away if you can. stock up -stay home- stay safe.

For junk food I turn to in high-stress situations, Hostess Apple Pies and Mountain Dew. It's godawful most of the time, but when I need a jolt (and the ensuing sugar coma-induced nap), there's nothing better. But stockpiling Pop Tarts for barter is a great idea.

 

For what I worry about running out of? Birth control. I come from a fertile people, and I do not think that being pregnant will make it easier to handle TEOTWAWKI. Later, that could be a good thing, but for the first months/years, I'd want to be as sterile as a vacuum-sealed, plastic-wrapped syringe, thank you very much.

Autonomous,

My only quibble is I think 6 hours is a tad long! Interesting thing about forts. They seem so solid but they are so hard to defend. Can be done but it takes a lot more manpower than most folks think. The Alamo was taken from some 500 Mexican soldiers early in the Texas war for independence by fewer than 100 men. That it could then be held by fewer than 200 men against over 2000 was very poor planning. The "fortress Walmart" has the same issue. It simply can not be secured. Want an interesting game? Walk around Walmart and look at the openings and approaches. What are the walls made of? Could a vehicle drive through one as a breaching method. Loading docks secure? Plant and garden center? Front doors? Emergency exits? Roof? Nope, it would be tough to secure a Wal Mart from the inside and to do it from the outside would take quite a few folks.
