Whats the point of saving things? Well... I don't know about everyone else but I have collected thousands of PDF books and capture files from the internet on everything from making soap to making gunpowder. If TSHTF I'll have a fair number of things to barter with for the little things in life to make my days as comfy as can be managed. Information and knowledge would come to be very valuable, I'm thinking. Since...the majority of people wouldn't even think about what they'd just lost until the first idea of "Let's google it....err...oh ..wait...

In one fell swoop, all communications, communication devices, towers, transmittors, retransmittors, sattelite dish receptor thingies and the like are turned into the world's largest collection of ash trays in seconds.
But, if we put our iPhones and iPads and tablets and other instruments of mass laziness in the microwave, they'll be safe.
Just wondering . . . how big of a microwave should I be buying to fit inside and thusly protect things like cell towers, sattelite dish receptor hingies, transmittors, retransmittors and all the other doo-dads that are needed to make the little iPoddy things functional?
Without those additional doo-dads, it's kinda like owning a Corvette but having narry a drip of fuel left in the country to make it move . . .
What's the point of saving stuff that ain't gonna work anyway?
