  2. Coronavirus
    Just happened to see this on the news (Bing) and it's something I hadn't really thought of. I know a lot of people are hitting the food banks hard, but still, it's something to think about. Figured it'd go better here than in the gardening section...
  3. Coronavirus
    From Golden State Times Twitter account. A conversation caught on a hot mic at White House Press briefing between John Roberts and another person. Roberts tells the guy to take off his mask and the other guy mentions they've already been vaccinated. Well anyway you'll have to listen to it...

    Making an N95 mask from scratch So....I’ve been watching things unfold each day. It seems to worsen with each day....and like many others, commonsense tells you - since everything is made in China, the supply chain will be broken in about two to three weeks. I think I am prepared, and I’m...

    I just retired and have been growing a beard for the past few months. It's getting to the point where it looks reasonably good now. To my chagrin, I've read several places that all the N95 masks I have won't form a proper shield over facial hair. I'd prefer to keep my masks sealed so I have...

    I don't think it's time to push the panic button yet, but .... the new Wuhan virus appears to be spreading fast so I'm beginning to transition to pre-SHTF mode. What preps would be beneficial at this stage? I'm thinking: 1) Stock up on zinc pills. Zinc has been proven in labs to slow the...

    I wanted to put this in General Discussion instead of the gun forums so everyone could see it. I just tried to navigate to Cheaperthandirt.com and was redirected to a funny URL. I closed the browser window, because I was suspicious. Sure enough, a little window popped up saying "Security...

    PART 1 “The real problem isn’t the bears,” thought Mark to himself. “It’s the squirrels”. A man could take out a bear with a few shots from a 30-06 or a .44 magnum, but a squirrel, well, that was a whole different ball game. One squirrel at a time wasn’t too much of a problem, but they were...
