spinifex: Was working out on an exposed hilltop in a paddock when the front came through. Nearly got blown away by a squall that must have been 100kmh. Battling to stand up in it and quite a few trees had large branches snapped off.

fei: If anyone is wondering how clueless journos are about firearms, have a look at 60 Minutes tonight. Apparently the airsoft gun those lads in Canada played with before their rampage is "one of the closest objects on the market to a realistic machine gun"

fei: I guess the fact that it fires plastic balls 20 metres makes it really dangerous and realistic

spinifex: Hi Fei, Good to see you back. Yeah, what a bunch of morons. We all have bigger fish to fry.

spinifex: Anyone else here watch the David Attenborough show on Climate Change? Pretty depressing. Why worry about gel guns? Or real ones? Looks like my desalination experiments just got more pertinent.

Here's some first hand experiences and thoughts from a Venezuelen Prepper.
Having overcome a few personal incidents that rocked the boat these last few weeks, I want to write now about one of the most important experiences regarding the psychological aspect of prepping. Looking back as a Venezuelan prepper, there are things I would have done differently if I had fully known what was coming our way......

Bump! i know this is an old thread but i didn't want to start a new one on the same topic...
This is an OLD, before-it-got-worse green-left article that thinks the socialists had the right idea, it was just those mean capitalists - Apparently the capitalists were screwing them up by refusing to operate factories and produce goods at a loss or for nil profit. It's fascinating reading because it sheds some light on what on earth the leaders of the country were thinking, when they put them in this situation to begin with...

Yeah... somewhere in some coverage of Venezuela some journo's interviewed a family who basically said, "we were living off handouts but there haven't been any handouts for a month so now we don't have much food" ... I mean there were a bunch of poor skinny kids stuck with parents like that, ouch! but it was like welfare was their plan A ... and this is who they pick to induce sympathy. Huh.
