Today on Del Squacho: a comprehensive guide for survival following the end of the world as we know it. Here’s an excerpt:
Boy, I sure hope you like canned goods, because fresh fruits, vegetables, and proteins are probably going to be pretty hard to come by. Sure, you might think you’ll be able to grow/raise all of your own food, but if you’re like most of the people in the civilized world, you have absolutely no clue how to do so. Therefore you will almost certainly starve to death before surmounting the learning curve unless, of course, you supplement your meager diet with Spam and Hot Dog Chili.
It’s a wise idea to start stocking up on non-perishable foodstuffs as soon as possible, because hitting up the local Wal-Mart in the middle of humanity’s death knell is just not a good idea. Not only will things be even more chaotic than Wal-Mart generally is, but you’re not going to be the only person who comes up with the idea. That means fighting through giant, and probably well-armed crowds of people who are doing their damnedest to ensure that they don’t starve to death. If you’ve got a nice stash at home you can wait out the melee, and simply show up a few weeks later and take what you need amidst the broken and mutilated carcasses of your former friends and neighbors.
Pretty morbid, I agree. But an entertaining read! Who knows, it could come in handy. Here’s the link:
