I have a e-mail buddy in Cairo. They live in a 6th floor condo
My friend and his wife heard a huge commotion outside in the streets and he said it looked like thousands of maniacs were running amok complete with
police, etc...........now he asked his wife, we need to go shopping for food - we're running low on stuff but I can't go out in this.
His wife told him to look in the guest bedroom.
Stacked floor to ceiling was nothing but food and supplies, enough for quite a while, the bed was folded up, the entire room was stocked.
He asked, "When in the heck did you do all this hoarding?"
She replied, "Each time I went shopping I bought just a little extra and stashed it...........we can sit tight for a long while until things calm down
than go to my sister's.
I've read, several books you might enjoy. I secretly admit I did. Loads of useful info in each book.
-- Lights Out by David Crawford
-- Deep Winter by Thomas Sherry (sugar sweet like Ned Flanders but some good information)
-- Deep Winter 2 by Thomas Sherry called, Shatter and book 3 Remnant
-- Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse - James Wesley Rawles
-- Ashfall by Mike Mullin (Yellowstone blows)
Thomas Sherry has been a busy bee, his books average 600-700 pages long. David Crawford's, Lights Out is 611 pages.
Now depending on the crisis and we currently have several main ones going on................Japan with Reactor 4 having melted down (yes it looked
melted down months ago to me) all the food hoarding and tunnel digging ain't going to help you.
You would logically need a seed vault, the likes of only Bill & Melinda Gates or the US Government can afford, 1,000 miles deep and built into the
side of a granite mountain.
For fun see a movie, love it, called, "Blast From The Past" - with Alicia Silverstone. It's funny, not educational but will lighten you up.
30-40 feet deep with 1 year supply of food and seeds - sorry but in my humble and uneducated opinion (I'm no nuclear expert won't do diddly squat if
we have enough radiation leaks
Plutonium (play /pluːˈtoʊniəm/ ploo-toh-nee-əm) is a transuranic radioactive chemical element with the chemical symbol Pu and atomic number
94. It is an actinide metal of silvery-gray appearance that tarnishes when exposed to air, forming a dull coating when oxidized. The element normally
exhibits six allotropes and four oxidation states. It reacts with carbon, halogens, nitrogen and silicon. When exposed to moist air, it forms oxides
and hydrides that expand the sample up to 70% in volume, which in turn flake off as a powder that can spontaneously ignite. It is also radioactive and
can accumulate in the bones. These properties make the improper handling of plutonium dangerous.
Plutonium is the heaviest primordial element by virtue of its most stable isotope, plutonium-244, whose half-life of about 80 million years is just
long enough for the element to be found in trace quantities in nature. Plutonium is mostly a byproduct of nuclear fission in reactors: Some of the
neutrons released by the fission process convert uranium-238 nuclei into plutonium. Source: en.wikipedia.org...
Don't forget the Gulf Oil Gusher (It was never a spill) is still sprewing and on top of that is the nice CoreExit our government poured on top, our
ozone layer possibly being destroyed by HAARP, multiple big earthquakes (my state has the most nuclear reactors in the USA) and we won't even go into
the possibility of WWIII being just two keys away.
Humanity is living precariously these days but you can't tell anyone anything because everyone thinks they know it all...........so things will keep
escalating until we reach a breaking point or Mother Earth gets so tired of the fleas on her back she shakes us all off.
Live each day to the fullest, I've stopped trying to tell people to throw the psychopaths running our planet out of office, I'm done trying to educate
people that service to others vs service to self is mankind's only salvation.
Treasure each moment you have left and don't worry - tomorrow a asteroid the size of NY could slam right into us so again, enjoy and be grateful for
each and every day.
Feed the squirrels, watch the birds, smell the flowers, walk barefoot in the park and kiss your love like it's the first time and the last time each
time that you part.
Life in some form or other will continue, if not here on this third rock from a medium class yellow star, somewhere else.
And, your soul, your life force is eternal.
Only thing I hope is if we go, it's fast and not painful.
I hate pain.
Personally I don't think the end is coming this year, probably the day after I win 10,000,000 in my state's lottery that's usually how my luck runs.
