The scenario is now unfolding with massive unemployment , countries struggling to maintain power supplies. The modern world with its fragile infrastructure is showing endemic problems which won't go away. The only thing which will get us through is knowledge, we have an advantage a modern Laptop, which can be charged up for years with a wind-up charger. or solar panel.
So what should we download, for its limited life of say five years so we can make hard copies of the information? Is there an everything compendium a sort of encyclopedia Galactica, or even programs that can inform and direct from repairing a car to how to bake bread? assuming there is no internet and it's a closed information system what would you download?

Mechanic (or some decent Dads) and Baker (or most decent Mums) they already know this information, maybe they will trade it with you, I am a carpenter so I can help build/maintain a houses for you, what are you trading for these services?

You can download the whole of Wikipedia.

There are even special ereader devices that use far less battery like a Kindle.

Here are a few quick ones. I'd print them. As stated above, no need for electricity to access.

FM 21-76 US ARMY SURVIVAL MANUAL (PDF)
How to Build a Soda Can Stove
The Constitution of the United States printable booklet

And here's a catalog of a whole bunch.

Free Survival PDFs, Manuals, and Downloads (2021 Update)

If you really need them printed, I'd suggest making two copies. Put one in a binder, keep it accessible. The other put in layered resealable bags and stash them somewhere hidden. Wouldn't hurt to put a dessicant pack in the bag with the paper.

It seems the energy now and America first was a good idea. Perhaps we can wait for a few more electric cars to come out, and we figure out how to deal with the environmental impacts of the battery building, and recycling/composting.

I love the outdoors, and am not a fan of pollution, but you have to deal with today, before you dance tomorrows dance.

I'm rather surprised there isn't a central index of survivalist materials here on the forum. At least we have a compendium of Q threads in case anyone needs a detailed analysis of cryptic insider leaks when society falls apart and we have to remember how to brew clean water and build a wood stove and generate our own electricity. Thanks Q.

Agreed but since you can download the whole contents of a library, and still have a load of memory left. It would be a more practical arrangement as a first response.

Well, if there's no power, at least it should be easy to clean the fan.

The printable constitution got me chuckling. That paper won't be worth much after I use it in the cooking fire.

For that you need a shovel. And an assistant.

No problem. It's definitely a good start, kind of covers everything.

Slightly different context but still within the scope of # hitting the fan: Trump Rally in Des Moines Iowa tonight at the fairgrounds. Oh, and the planned parenthood book sale is also at the fairgrounds. Not enough info to start a thread until something happens, but the kindle and accelerant there just waiting for a flame.

No offense, but if you are right now looking for the basic information to survive a SHTF scenario you are already too far behind the curve so it really doesn't matter.

And why be so inefficient that you would want to download a ton of knowledge and then take years to print it? Just buy the books.

Also books can help you, yes. Knowledge is important.

However, you are not going to read 50 books about gardening one winter and then have a sustainable garden by the next fall.

You will not read FM 21-76 and then be able to live off of the land or survive in any but the gentlest of climates.

Reading about automotive mechanics will most certainly not make you a good mechanic.

Reading might give you some tips on how to navigate the path, but if you haven't already made the path in the first place then it really won't matter.

An opinion, as always...
