    since you failed to provide the basics, I doubt you are prepared to actually act on your tough guy act on an internet forum.
    How would you know? For all I know I have what I need to survive and then take and he has done nothing to prevent it and his is the tough guy routine in hopes that he may be left alone. ROAR! Like that...

    Sometimes threads like this provide advice people can use, certainly the threads are generally begun with good intentions, to inform and to educate, to gather diverse opinions.

    Why begin annoying and infuriating posts to simply divert attention to self, change the subject and destroy the thread for others?

    I can't possibly know, but what kind of asshole preps to be the person prepared to steal from everyone else in a calamity.

    easier to pose then prepare, which I suspect is closer to the truth.

    The same asshole who goes around thinking he is invincible, and never gives a second thought to how he even manages to live and survive. He doesn't prepare for anything. Just responds to a crisis like an asshole would do.

    What we're talking about here is not a situation where the power plants are okay and only the lines are down like in a hurricane or ice storm or other natural disaster, and it gets fixed quickly where people start getting power back in phases and all do within a week or two or even three.

    What we're talking about is total loss of the entire grid, including the generation plants. Power could be out for months, or a year, or longer in certain areas. Major difference.
    Well I can only speak for the area that I live in, and with the ocean right there. Like less than a mile or so away, we should never starve. That and two intercoastal rivers, many well stocked lakes and Gators out the ying yang.
    We be eatin' good.
