Get Inexpensive Preps by Going to Yard Sales
June 4, 2016, 12:14 pm

yard sales

My new water tank

I love this time of the year, its spring and the yard sales are starting.  Every year I add to my preps for pennies on the dollar.  Last week I bought a good Alice pack complete with fame and all the straps, plus a pistol belt, canteen and a small pouch for the total sum of $10.

This morning I bought a 300-gallon water tank with most of the piping to hook it up to rain gutters for $50.  A great buy, since it had only been used for fresh water at a couple of home shows. …

How to Become a Gray Woman
June 4, 2016, 6:58 am

by Megan

It?s no secret that in a post-SHTF situation, most women will be at a distinct disadvantage. Men are perceived as stronger, more prone to violence, and naturally more intimidating than women. The only thing women can do to combat this is to use this perception to their advantage when becoming a gray woman.

We notice and remember people because they draw our attention. It could be they seem threatening, overly large, or intimidating.

37 Years After Its Release, Monty Python?s Life Of Brian Provokes a Constitutional Case in Germany
June 4, 2016, 6:00 am

Martin Budich, the man behind a German group called Religious Freedom in the Ruhr, is in trouble with the law. It isn't so much that, three years in a row, he dared put on a public viewing of the 1979 Monty Python movie The Life of Brian. That would have been fine on most days of the year. The problem is that Budich consistently did so on Good Friday -- a religious holiday.

The study shows that release delays give rise to increased piracy, hurting sales in the process. In addition, the researchers conclude that the movie industry should consider minimizing or eliminating the unneeded delays.

The baby reportedly has microcephaly, a condition where the head fails to grow normally, inhibiting normal brain growth. While mentally challenged, most of these babies are otherwise healthy. Many will require lifelong care, which has been estimated by President Obama to cost 10 million dollars over the life of the child.
