It's not good enough that they basically have control of everything. They have long had their eyes on the Internet. Imagine a world where information is TOTALLY GOVERNMENT APPROVED. Yeah...it would be like that...really terrible.
Two candy bars, melted snow, NO heavy winter clothing or a blanket...and a lot of luck.
See, this really illustrates something very important about surviving various types of incidents. Her life was really in jeopardy because of the temperatures and she survived it...but imagine how much more of a simple inconvenience this would have been had she had a good survival kit in the trunk of her vehicle.
A lot of people will inevitably look at this and they will say, "Well, that's why I don't need a coat or a blanket or sleeping bag and a bunch of other stuff. She made it on two candy bars and melted snow. That's why I think all this survival stuff is paranoid and stupid."
And I'm sure a lot of people do think that way. I think a lot of them become the "tragic" news stories, too.
So, this might sound sort of odd...but in order to set up some type of advertising on this blog, they have to be able to automatically verify my blog. So, I have to place the next sentence in this post. This is rather strange... 8-)
So, Verizon Wireless sends out a text message to all of its customers in New Jersey alerting and alarming them that there was a civil emergency and that they should take shelter now. They signed it US Govern
But they didn't say that it was a TEST they were running...
it was my Wife though...she just turned 40. I'm 43...I guess some people would say this is stupid or childish behavior...we love each other and we have enough in life that we have to be serious about. When we get a chance to act like we're two little kids and our teenage son is not around...we do. You don't like it? Fine! Get out of my blog-house! 8-)
After I took her for a tour trying to find a copy of Aerosmith's stupendous 1970s release, "Get Your Wings," and being totally unsuccessful at Target...I always check out the flashlights and outdoors stuff...
I was SHOCKED!
Gerber's line of Bear Gryll's approved survival gear was there! Yes, the guy that will climb a greased aluminum lightpole to escape a stampede of scorpions high on crank, he stares back at you from the blister carded Gerber tools and doo-dads, dirty faced...
I've never watched an entire episode of the guy's show. Every time I see a glimpse of it he is doing something so incredibly stupid, I go back to VH-1 Classics or something...I mean, well...you know what I mean.
Gerber makes quality gear. Is it "high" quality...why...I don't rightly know anymore! I know they used to, I don't know about now and I don't know about the Gryll's line of gear. He is just funny to me...and the people that think that show is like a training program amuse me as well.
Just because there is carpet and, in this case, beat-up drywall, it doesn't mean you shouldn't watch where you put your hands. Me and a friend of mine at work got pictures of her at about 9:50 this morning before sending her off to the next life.
