Everyone For Themselves

adel

The average citizen is clueless to their surroundings and has never entertained the idea of what they’d do in a disaster or life threatening situation.

These individuals will lose half their IQ points as soon as the emergency tones go off on their radio.  Tunnel vision and panic will cause them to freeze up and be in your way.

When panic sets in, your average person gets tunnel vision and their field of vision can shrink up to 70%.

Stress hormones are like hallucinogenic drugs that compromise their decision making capability.

You, assuming you’re of the preparedness mindset, will be surrounded by average citizens in complete denial about their reality and they will not be able to cope, adapt or overcome.

“Did you know that the biggest threat to your life if you survive a plane crash isn’t the fire or the smoke?  It’s your everyday average citizen blocking the isles and exits as they try to get their carry-on luggage out of the overhead bin.”

What is your disaster personality?

Will you endanger yourself or your family to help others?

Will you be able to push women and children out of your way to get to safety?

Or will you be the person to allow just one more person into the lifeboat so that it sinks?

NASA study says we’re doomed!

nasa1

A recent NASA study say’s we’re all doomed and there’s nothing we can do about it.

I say we max out that credit card and party it up this weekend!

Civilization was pretty great while it lasted, wasn’t it? Too bad it’s not going to for much longer According to a new study sponsored by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, we only have a few decades left before everything we know and hold dear collapses.

The report, written by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei of the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center along with a team of natural and social scientists, explains that modern civilization is doomed. And there’s not just one particular group to blame, but the entire fundamental structure and nature of our society.

Analyzing five risk factors for societal collapse (population, climate, water, agriculture and energy), the report says that the sudden downfall of complicated societal structures can follow when these factors converge to form two important criteria.

Motesharrei’s report says that all societal collapses over the past 5,000 years have involved both “the stretching of resources due to the strain placed on the ecological carrying capacity” and “the economic stratification of society into Elites [rich] and Masses (or “Commoners”) [poor].” This “Elite” population restricts the flow of resources accessible to the “Masses”, accumulating a surplus for themselves that is high enough to strain natural resources. Eventually this situation will inevitably result in the destruction of society.

Rules

The quest for power is the primary driving force of history, always has been, always will be. Those who fail to recognize this principle are not spared in the grand chess game, but rather are moved and manipulated by forces that they do not understand.

In my book, I list post collapse professions that will ensure you are a value to a grid down community.

One of those professions I list is a “Brothel Owner.”
The world’s oldest profession has been a part of every civilization throughout mankind’s history.

Your opinion on the issue doesn’t matter. Sex sells! It is, after all, the oldest profession.  Women have been trading sex for goods and services since the dawn of man.

Men today are still paying for “sex” in one sense or another.

Right or wrong, prostitution is still making people money on every continent today.

In a collapsed society, resorting to prostitution may very well be the only way some women will be able to survive.  I’ve said in a previous post that “women will have it the worst during a societal collapse.” They always do.

One thing is certain, they’ll be plenty of morally deficient men willing to take advantage of this fact.

Perfect for the Bug-Out-Bag.

The perfect book for the Bug-Out Bag.

Written for the procrastinator in all of us that waits for the last minute to do anything.

It’s also written for those who have an Attention Deficit Disorder.

I designed the SHTF Art of War to be a quick, immediate action manual that’s stripped down to quickly deliver the reader information on topics such as how the criminal element will conduct their reign of terror.

It covers how to pick a winning survival team, how to prepare for a stay at a FEMA camp, what to expect in a 100 mile traffic jam and what it takes to be a post apocalyptic scavenger.

It also provides a list of post collapse professions that ensure you’re essential to a grid down community.  Plus a whole lot more.

This book covers those controversial real world subjects you never think about unless you live in a war zone or an underdeveloped country.  It pushes your mind into an uncomfortable way of thinking.

The Perfect Survival Knife.

My “Go-To” Knife.

Knives are a very hotly debated topic!  Especially the debates on the so called tactical knives.

Hunters and gatherers have had a personal opinion about which cutting instrument is best since the first flake was chipped off an obsidian stone.

stone

After all, the knife was the tool that allowed us to climb quite a few links up the “food chain”.

I’m not going to debate which knife is best.  That’s entirely a matter of personal preference based on lifestyle and occupation.  If you want that sort of thing, there are plenty of knife forums on the web to keep you reading for the rest of your life.  Probably 2 or 3 lifetimes.

This writing is about what knife I find I most carry.

I have found my go-to “Goldilocks” knife has been my Cold Steel, Hold Out 2.

holdout2

Goldilocks, meaning it’s not too small and not too big.

In my experience, you need to be able to get a lot of grip (real-estate) on a knife handle to actually do knife chores with it.  This knife offers that.

Small knives are fine when you’re out and about at some fancy shin-dig with your lady friend and don’t expect to need a big blade.  However, for everyday man work in the working world, a knife needs to be relied upon to handle some tough duty.  Sometimes that duty may require the blade to go above and beyond its call.

The Cold Steel Hold Out 2 is a very solid knife.  The “Tri-Ad” lock has no play (wiggle) after 2 years of heavy use.  I’m an avid hunter and outdoors-man and this knife is a constant companion.  This knife sees plenty of field use.

The knife sports a 4 inch blade and an overall length of 9 inches.  I find 4 inches of blade seems to be just the right length for just about any knife job I run into.  If I run into a job that’s bigger I go get my axe or machete.

I’m also not a big fan of serrations on a blade.

A word about the AUE-8 Steel that this knife is made out of.  It works.

I’m not a knife maker or metallurgist.  I’m a regular fella that likes a knife to cut what I want it to cut.  I keep things simple.  Sure, I agree, there’s better steel out there for a knife blade than AUE-8.

However!  I think the first rule of owning a knife should be to learn how to sharpen that knife on a stone.  I believe this is a skill that’s not being passed down.  If you own a knife you should know how to sharpen it on a stone.

I think too many people buy a knife that’s sharp right out of the box and use it until it’s dull. They then get one of those cheap little knife sharpeners that you pull the blade through and screw up the angle of the cutting edge.  They then complain that the blade won’t hold an edge.

Learn how to sharpen a knife.  Don’t be afraid of looking bad when you’re learning something new.  Just like learning how to ride bike for the first time, no-one looks good learning something new.

I’ve always said that in life all you need is a good knife and a good plan, however, there’s no substitute for knowledge as well.

So obtain the best knife you can afford.  Keep it sharp and carry the damn thing.

If you haven’t read “The SHTF Art of War” yet, and want to know how important your knife will become when the lights go out, fear not. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE.

P.S.  I am a self diagnosed “knife-oh-holic” and would love to hear from others about what blade they find to be their “Go-to” blade.
