Rite-in-the-Rain Paper, does it really work?

Yes it does! It's marvelous!

So, I decided to try a few different writing instruments.

A PILOT Razor Point - total failure. It did not want to stick to this paper and when I placed the paper under the bathroom faucet, it washed the ink off as if it were dirt on the paper.

A PILOT G2 Gel Ink Pen, which happens to be my favorite pen when I have to do a lot of writing. It did not want to write on this paper but as you can see from the photographs, it did not wash off the paper as the other PILOT brand pen ink did.

Pencil was, as expected, just fine.

Sanford Sharpies are just great markers. The top-most text in black and blue Sharpie was five to six minutes old (dried), approximately, when placed in the sink. The lower black and blue text was under two minutes old when placed under the water.

I could not believe it! It is the paper because Sanford Sharpies will smudge on a host of papers and boxes, etc. Not on this stuff!

Then I deliberately tried to smudge the ink on the paper with my thumb, it didn't smear.

Huevos Rancheros Uno

My El Cheapo-Norte Americano Huevos Rancheros

However many eggs you wish to cook and however you wish to cook them. I prefer scrambled.

One (1) can of Mild, Original or Extra Hot - RO-TEL.

Three (3) cans of Del Monte sliced (pre cooked) potatoes or Hanover (whole, small) New Potatoes.

One (1) Chorizo per person.

Find a can opener or you will thtarve!

You desperately need a can opener to open the RO-TEL and canned potatoes.

If you don't have the can opener, you will thtarve...errah, you'll starve.

Or you will have to pound the can on the ground or perhaps use an axe or hatchet to open the can.

It's easier to use a P-38 Can Opener or a Camillus "Demo" Knife or Cub/Boy/Girl Scout (Camillus) Knife.

Or, you could make a deal with the mouse, see if that works. It usually doesn't work and results in being electrocuted when you stick your hand in the wall through the mousehole or all of your hair being blasted off of you when you try to blow the mouse up. If you are a duck, you will usually have your bill spun around or have to pick it up.

Huevos Rancheros Dos

Scramble your eggs.

Fry the potatoes and add black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to taste. Just use a little bit of butter.

Fry the Chorizo.

On the plate, add Ken's Cajun Seasoning. Oh, you don't have any, do you? That's a shame!

Survival Product

I picked up a container of this Instant Chicken Soup, very good!

If I remember correctly, it was about $5.99 and the container lists 67 servings.

Drawbacks? It has MSG in it, so if you are sensitive to that chemical, you need to avoid this or use it minimally.

If I eat at the wrong Chinese Food Carryout, my ears will look like they are ready to burst into flames, some people end up in the emergency room over MSG.

I had one cup of this instant soup last night and a cup about 15 minutes ago, don't feel bad at all. I guess the Chinese Food Carryouts really pile the MSG on...

OSEM Chicken Consomme / Instant Soup

Ingredients: Salt, Corn Starch, Sugar, Dextrose, Spices, Flavor Enhancers (Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate), Maltodextrin, Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Dehydrated Onions, Yeast Extract.

Now, say you have your little alcohol stove made from a soda or beer can, you have you some HEET (Methyl Alcohol) and you have your steel cup and some water and a package of this instant chicken soup. You're cold and you're trying to get warm...and this will go a long way towards making that a reality.
