Survivalism, the practice of preparing for a crackup of civilization, tends to evoke a certain picture: the woodsman in the tinfoil hat, the hysteric with the hoard of beans, the religious doomsayer.

And the forum spammer from India with 4 accounts.  What would prepping be without spam?

It doesn't say anything about having wars with nail guns. When I worked at a box company summer while in high school we would hold back the thing on the tip with one hand and fire it with the other hand. The nails would go a pretty good way and hurt too if you got hit.
                    On the back of my car sun reflector it says not to use while driving...............seriously?

There have been a couple of times when I backed out of a parking spot, shifted into Drive, and found my vision strangely obscured...
