Howstuffworks "10 Ways to Survive a Snowstorm" There's no truer statement than the old adage "you can't control the weather." You can't even predict it with complete certainty.

It lacks a sense of priority... where the industrialized Western world thinks that so called 'third world' countries will do ok if tech is thrown at them. Imo it's an arrogant attitude, and an attitude that says that if we give them tech first, then everything else will follow. "So you're infrastructure is down and disorder is everywhere and there's no food or fuel....

Next to the main entrance, you can always find the Indians and the Pakistanis, offering you to buy some hash, weed or even cocaine.

My intent was to use them as little pots for starting my lettuce seeds. Fire for survival Again and again, you need to think in some other terms in order to understand importance of some everyday and usual things when SHTF. It is hard in way to explain importance of some thing that is so common and usual for us today so we do not even notice it, because we take it for granted.
