Mr. Anchovy and Survival's Dirty Little Secret

 






Bourne/Bond Corollary:










Go to Zero's place. RTWT. Watch him crush all the Walter Mitty survivalist fap fantasies in a 20-ton shop press of Reality.

And then, watch the whole skit, for entertainment.


The fact that it's survival truth is just icing on the cupcake.

At the risk of going on a tangent here, that is a good article, but he points out the ability to think critically and logically (I paraphrase) is most important. I agree. But I lived through 2020 and I am thoroughly convinced that that skill is scarcer than a hen's teeth. Somewhere between "the entire planet concocted a fake plague and threw thier economy in the shredder to meddle in American politics" and "the entire US medical field is part of a government conspiracy to perpetuate the idea of a plague" I began to believe that most people couldn't think logically if you put a gun to their head and forced them to do it.

The behavior of people in 2020 did not impress me. A lot of people who should have known better proved that they were both clueless and worse than useless. Smart enough to buy a gun and tote it around, not smart enough to plan for not a having a job tomorrow. Life decked me with that one shortly after I got out of college, and I used the opportunity to buy a clue about emergency preparedness.

Not as "sexy" as a gun, but more useful.

Aesop, the point is well taken (the post at Commander Zero was on point as well). Yes, a weapon usually beats someone without a weapon, but ideally one avoids using the weapon at all. And having a weapon but nothing else - food, clothes, "supplies" of various kinds of sorts - likely makes for a very short term survival plan. One can maybe beat one or two the draw, but not everyone.
