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.

spinifex: Soon the only reliable water left will be the sea. Evidently there wont be much left living in that either. Bring on the asteroid.

Not overly. Foil lined cardboard with a plastic pull tab. I don’t make a habit of eating this stuff - but balanced risk I think. I think I have said before - almost all food storage info is rubbish - white flour is only good for 6 months - utter rubbish - cool dry conditions, protected from pests - at least 2 years - probably considerably more. Tinned anything 2 years - utter rubbish - 5-10 years for most - again provided good storeage conditions and no signs of compromise I want to know the real life on this food - and the internet keeps failing me. I rotate most food - but still have some items that accumulate simply because we obviously buy and grow fresh meat and fruit and verges so tinned foods of those tend to accumulate.
If the only other option is starvation then 100% agree. Anything is worth a try.
But there may be instances, and I've had this happen when clearing out a storeroom in an old farmhouse, that one can come across heaps of very out of date (10+years) tinned and bottled stuff (in this case fruit, puddings, ham and soft drink) and it might be a temptation to consume it. Especially if one happens to be stuck with a very bland diet. We did actually consume the bottled, crown capped soft drink and it was good.
