31 posts in this topic

These  items are very basic medicinal comfort health wellness and too numerous benefits to mention.

Look up all the uses of each of these and you will see why.

1 baking soda (think pounds they sell a 13 pound bag a few is not to many)

2 salt (100 pounds is a good start)

3 Hydrogen peroxide 3%  (A case or 2 of quarts keep in the dark)

4 vinegar white and cider (5 gallons is not too much)

5 borax ( 40 mule team ) 1 box ought to last a very long time.

6 Vicks Vaporub  (a few large 6 ounce jars)

7 Vaseline  large jar

8 Vodka depends but if your not a drinker at minimum a gallon

9 triple antibiotic ointment half dozen tubes

10 Sulfur powdered 

there are others but their use is not so straight foward.

Chopped fire wood , having 5 cords would be a bare minimum for folks living in colder areas per winter season.

Lead, 100 lbs if the need arises to cast projectiles.

Gunpowder powder, about 5 pounds would be a good start for most things. A bit more if your heavy into loading shotgun loads & rifles.

Primers, 5-8 thousands.

Water filters a dozen is a good start to have.

Seeds, is what I like to stockpile of various varieties hundreds of each would be a bare minimum.

Ok snake. Why the sulphur powder?

To mix with phospherous and potash?  YES

Add acidity to soil? YES

Keep snakes at bay....nah couldn't be that one. still Yes

Unless someone is allergic test on a eraser size patch of skin in a water based past it is a anti-fungal and can be used as an antibacterial  for dogs cats / large animals and humans. My cat was shot through the leg I dusted the wound and in a couple of days he was right s rain.

and all the other you mention in your other post but as a watered down spray to kill plant fungus.

Before antibiotics sulfa as the go to medication for infections

Silver in wire when used with a few 9 volt / 3 in series or  12 volt battery makes a colloidal silver not for drinking but good for wounds burns etc.

Coconut hull charcoal is one of the best for water treatment charcoal.

Vinegar is not easy to make it is basically air contact of wine that is why they use a an airlock  looks like an "S" goes in a plug with water in it allows the gas to escape and not let air in humm  like a "P" trap does in plumbing  Point is it is a waste to make wine and then turn it into vinegar when it is so cheap now and wine is a fantastic barter item.

Baking soda is good fro raising breads you can also make baking powder with baking soda 1/4 tsp and creme of tarter 1/4 tsp and corn starch 1/2 tsp  So I guess having creme of tarter in bulk maybe a half to 1 pound would be good because it taste better than soda bread I ate plenty when I worked in the prison system. as they don't use yeast because inmates steal it and make apple jack raisin jack hell anything as long as it had alcohol content.

There is a lot of things I learned from convicts :ph34r:

look up Borax for health.

Candy & chewing gum, are what I call comfort food.

Most of it will be consumed by children.

It’s like booze, smokes & coffee to others & worthy contender for bartering if need.

Chewing gum has other uses as well, once your done with it.

I’ve used it for bait for fishing & they do work  quite well from experience.

The only thing I would miss is Dr. Pepper and Coca Cola  I can make root beer from Sassafras root but to make it fizzy I would need to use a CO2 fire extinguisher I have a CO2 tank but in TEOTWAWKI to make it cold need a lot of gas w/ a funnel.

Sorry Snake, I hate drinking most soda pop, needs to be caffeine free.

Gives me a headache for hours.

Even the smell of Coffee/Expresso etc, gives me a headache.

When ever I smell freshly brewed coffee, I do a 180 degree turn the other way & im gone. You won’t see me hanging around.

Good old H2O / Water, thank you very much! Or  squeezed orange juice.

Borax is a good item I saw a utube video where mix one cup hydrogen peroxide with two cups water. Add 3 tbsp. of borax, and let dissolve. Used to rid people and animals of mange or scabies basically soak into skin or fur allow to air dry and keep applying until all signs are gone.  as well I saw where coconut oil  a cup and tea tree oil about a teaspoon will also work as these are all caused by parasites and either chemically or with oil choking them out.

I like this over using a pyrethrin that is a "possible" neurotoxin and the creme is hard to get to the skin on some dogs as they have an undercoat or double coat.

Here is a shortcut to 15 uses for Borax

15 uses for Borax

20 uses food grade diatomaceous earth

21 uses for Epsom salt

boric acid uses

trisodium phosphate

Trisodium phosphate cleaner flux and much more PDF

Borax, trisodium phosphate, boric acid, diatomaceous-earth and Epsom salt are staple for so many reasons look them up and you will be amazed at just how impossible it is to live without them.

having been a diver I think I can say that I have never raised the water level more than an infinitesimal amount but it was either rum or tequila / mescal flavored and I am sure the fish appreciated a stiff one :D.   

Rum is the only booze I enjoy consuming, a few shots & im all good.

In moderation & not to the point, I’m intoxicated/drunk.

very interesting i didn't know that...

there are plenty of nay sayers but they are all in elite countries that have options such as tier on hospitals antivenin and skilled doctors with a pharmacy and all the supplies and equipment, and don't mind charging you for flying in from other locations more antivenin.  Whereas if you live in the jungles or 3rd world where help is days away if at all they work with what the have.

one understanding is that you do not use the probes in the bite / wound but use an X or * pattern avoiding the punctures or bite because it can seal or cauterize the wound and you want that to weep or drain.

I post this as a hail Mary for a time or place where there is no doctor or access to emergency services of course if it were myself I would zap it as I was waiting for the ambulance. People need to be cautious that the person does not have a pacemaker or heart / health condition  that may endanger the victims life.

The stungun I chose was a low voltage model that used a 9 volt battery, I did not want a rechargeable because if the internal battery goes bad there is no replacement unless your knowledgeable and they use a wall plug or wall wart to recharge.  Some of my other gear use 9 volt batteries like my Paklites.

I have managed to keep my battery needs down to CR123, 9 volt AA AAA and CR32. as these are chargeable by my solar charger.

Here’s an idea for folks who are in a extremely limited budget.Say $50 maybe less, if you need to light up most of the rooms in you dwelling. This is for having lights & nothing else, no cooking, no fridge, no fan, no air conditioning, no washer & dryer, etc etc. 

One can purchase walkway solar lights from dollar stores, Home Depot, etc.

These items cost from $3-5 each, In my area. You leave them outside to charge during the day time, then at night time, bring them indoors.

Put as many as you want to brighten up a room or just one for low lighting. 

For $50 one could get at least a dozen, if not more of these  walkway solar lights.

They are cheap but effective.

Put one on the outside of your bug out bag for charging in the day time, At night you’ll be a beacon of light.

Now that you know, go get one or a dozen .

Lights for everyone!

    • LMAO, Shepard Smith was on with a guy from a group that supposedly defends reports and guess what again the phrase< "American reporter that worked for the New York post" DUH he was not an American citizen. So what are we to do fire 55.000 worker dump the stock market by 1/3rd to appease the press the same press that did not defend the rights of Alex Jones HELL at least Bill Maher gets it and admonished a group he was in front of stating he did not agree with Alex Jones but he had the right to speak his mind,  but not a peep out of Shepard smith who thinks he's a journalist he couldn't write jingles for toilet paper. they put up some amazing number like 1400 that have been killed since 1992 but out of that only 24 were targeted the rest were collateral damage during fire fights. 24 for the whole world since 1992 wholly sh*t it's an epidemic IT's Russian collusion look there's a naked woman in someones bed. When you piss someone off your likely to get killed. Hell let's nominate Koshogi for sainthood OOPS sorry he is not a Catholic he's a MUSLIM. we need to stop muslim on muslm killing LMAO or it might catch on...lets hop so. I wnat to know where are the investigations on Hillery's dead pool how about the 10,00 plus dead for invading 5 countries in 5 years ALA George Bush then more stupidity from Obama What about over 1 million Christians murdered by Islamist since 2001 not a friggin' peep women taken in war for sex slave damn little rhetoric on that what about Lois Lerner from the IRS stifling freedom of association and political freedom? against Republican groups / tea party  only.
    • Californian are running like rats off a sinking ship don't let them win election in your tow county or state, why because they have not learned a damn thing they screwed up everything possible in Commiefornia and now that it is untenable they run away.  Three quarters of all the major cities are democrats in commiefornia and a bunch have had to file for bankruptcy they promised the city workers police fire and prison / jailers that they would have a forever pension with all healthcare and increases LMAO well it is time to pay and the b@stards are going to the bathroom to avoid paying the check. Commiefornians are coming soon to a town near you remember who they are and treat them like your lazy lying brother in-law. It's not that they are bad people it's that they are stupid just like New York city dwellers the rest of the state of New York is OK but they are trapped by the city no matter how they vote or what they do locally the city is the state and makes all the laws and rules for the state everyone else is like a person that closed the door on the taxi with their coat hung in it they are along for the ride and the ending is not going to be fun. I live near enough to Houston to see what democratic leaders smell like, snake oil and money illicit money there are enough gangs and dope there to float a tanker off a sand bar, and some how it gets laundered and ends up as political contributions.  the police department pension keeps going broke and they steal it from the fire department to make up the shortfall. Tehy can't keep criminals in jail because there are too many so they let them out to prey on more working citizens but I digress this rant is about Californians. The word sh*t bird means a person that where ever they light they crap all over and leave that is the definition of any of the escapees from the major democratic cities, as in San Francisco Las Angeles, Seattle, Portland Oregon, Detroit Chicago, New York, Boston, look at what they are allowing murders minimal sentencing on drug felons handing out needles condoms and credit cards to homeless criminals (they have ongoing police records) a tax on everything and fees tolls user fees  and more controls on private property and corruption in your face. Here is a few little videos on how illegal immigration hurts American citizens keeps pay scale down and kills local jobs for local children.         GREAT VIDEO ABOUT A LIVING WAGE          
    • I want to double down on my statement that ALL how many is that, ALL governments have a hit list for years any one of political or scientific stature has been in the cross hairs of their own country or another. recently HUNDREDS of genetic scientists have been killed all over the world China and North Korea have killed people Kim had his brother killed Russia has killed more than a few with Radio active elements this is just the tip of the iceberg nation states murder people all the time how about the Princes Dianna witnesses ?  Want to talk about a death toll Bill and Hilary's count could stretch across D.C. Any youtube search even if only partially correct  makes your sphincter catch second gear. At east all of Trumps detractors are still alive. While Bill was Governor there is a recording of his brother saying Bill has a nose like a vacuum  cleaner speaking about cocaine. so White Water all the sexploits and the stories of  Clinton foundation are all political lies well you can't sweep over a hundred dead under the carpet without leaving some lumps. Presstitutes (journalists that get paid to write poison pen notes) have built a wall around the Clinton's but I see that wall starting to crack all the lies spouted by the left seem to be reality but not on Trump but on the Clinton's they colluded with Russia they corrupted the upper echelon of all the alphabet agencies into Uranium One and a host of other nefarious deals. It's hard to rob a bank as big as the U.S. government unless you have some lookouts and insiders IMHO. I don't think much of either of the BUSH family as thy touted the same line as Obama the jobs are gone and they are not coming back our economy was not as good as it could have been but then again if your working for the banks and the E.U. and not the Americans that voted you in well you see what I mean. Bush Sr. made a speech and in it, " A New World Order" that should have sent shudders up and down the voter pool but because America is like 27th on the educational level of all countries you can see where that went over their heads. Everyone knows if your not smart street or otherwise your going to get taken and the American taxpayer has been fleeced screwed and lied to for so long they expect it and look forward to it NOW that Trump is in office they are begining to wake up and see all the lies from the last 4 administrations jobs can come back law and order can be restored we can have jobs and better trade deals and taxes do not have to go up every year now he is pressing to make all departments cut 5% given time he will pay for the military and the wall if we can give him a majority in the house and senate I think healthcare will be the next domino to topple.   WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE WE KNOW WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO FOR 40 YEARS GET OFF YOUR AZZ AND KNEES AND GO OUT AND VOTE.
    •   The 800 pound gorilla in the room is 55,000 jobs compared to one dumbazz journalist who had picked a side in this fight like all the Trump haters in our news services. Make no mistake there is nothing better than allowing thie incident to cut the throat of American jobs / manufacturing and drive down all the increased jobs that make the Obama administration look like the fools they were a quote from Obama was, "those jobs are never coming back" he was a fool then and made it worse by stating Trump would never be president.  It is not Just 55,000 jobs it is the stock market will also take a hit another reason for the left to to take a victory lap and jeer that Trump policies were pie in the sky Socialists will do anything to destroy this country "out of Chaos, order" they are doing their best to back socialists candidates who's policies will put us in the poor house, they want open boarders and then make Americans pay for their healthcare housing and food stamps and if they make another baby more more more goes out to minimum wage workers or flatbackers (whores)  I have seen this in bars that I have run, a short fall in their budget they go out and find a open wallet that needs some companionship, it's called prostitution. As far as this journalists now on fox news Harris Falkner is calling him an American based journalists to make it sound like he is an American citizen, He IS BOT. I had a lot of respect for Harris Falkner but she has shot that in the AZZ as far as I am concerned her and Don Lemon should start dating, but I don't think he's into women. Since the toppling of Rupert Murdock and his replacement I have seen a definite shift of some of the Fox news host to the left but there have been those that hated Trump from the beginning Daina Perino was a never Trumper along with Shepard Smith who wears more eyeliner than any woman I know. Bill Hemmer is a piece of work he just want to magnify himself he would shoot himself to get attention (attention deficit disorder ). Jon Scott his family couldn't spell so he was traumatized by their ignorance so he decided to get a degree and forgot to change his name to JOHN he is about as exciting as bumper rust. Brian Kilmead another Attention deficit disorder  champion, then there is  Eric Bolling  a never Trumper he is a democrat in a morons clothing I think he successful at fooling us he's not, just left of pocket book style Yankee liberal who probably voted for New York Mayor  Bill de Blasio.  I see where the Democrats want to take down Trump and they are willing to tank America to do it because any fool knows when the stock market falls it goes right back up so it would make them look like saviors if they manipulate the president into making this Koshogi journalist thing into a pull the Saudi Military arms deal out from under 55,000 American workers  The democrats don't give a hoot in hell about Americans especially if they have a job, they want sniveling crawling beggars at their feet begging for the crumbs Trump gave them back while they hold the whip and send our jobs overseas and make a fat check for doing it.  
    • I pay 2.45 here of course we don't have free health care
