    And is pretty good, as far as I can tell. I have just started it, and while I have already seen some stuff I don't quite agree with, its been some quite interesting reading so far.

    Pretty much worthless.

    The electronics guys was at least interesting though only designed to sell some overpriced crap. Too bad his 3g wireless internet wont work in a disaster when cell towers are overloaded or down.

    Want to be more prepared than 99% of the people in the world? Put 20 gallons of gas, 20 gallons of water, and 20 rounds of 223 in your garage.

    Wow! Twenty whole rounds of .223? Where would anyone find that much to hoard in the first place?

    That gives you and your old lady five days. Whoopee.

    20 gallons is a nice start, but there's a long way to go after that.

    Alright faggots, I said it would make you more prepared than 99% of people in the world. I didn't say you could take on a zombie horde of spetnaz.

    In fact 20 gallons of gas alone puts you ahead of most retards. In a disaster there's no electricity for pumps, and the most important thing you need to do in a disaster is get the fuck away from the disaster.

    Retards who never seen a disaster think they need thousands of round of ammo to survive. They're going to just hold up in their compound ready for anything...until they realize their compound is under 20 feet of water or on fire.

    Better off owning a Prius and some gas than 30 days worth of food and ammo.
