My reading list

Ok all, OldDog got the ammo, I’m back to trading water above the surface, our Emperor is recovering nicely from his Lutefisk addiction so all is smooth around the core of the Empire but there is a grave disturbance in the Outer Rim…

Good stuff … I haven’t seen or heard of about 40% of those. I wish I was more of a reader. I’m reading a couple of books on knife-making and metallurgy. I’ll have to check the titles when I get home. With a surprisingly minimal investment in tools and materials, just about anybody can make their own knives/swords/spears/axes that are… Read more »

A little hard to find today, but the Foxfire Books are an invaluable reference library.

You need to add The Ranger Handbook and the Survival, Evasion, Recovery (Basic SERE). They are invaluable!!

I agree with LC Draco. I still have my original Ranger School Manual from 1985. As for the rest, pretty good list. Some I have heard of, others not.
I agree we are about to be in a world of shite and survival is key.

A neighbor ran into his house, retrieved his gun, and ran to the boy’s aid, shooting and killing one of the attacking dogs. A nearby policeman came quickly to the scene when he… Read more »

Re: The Stupor Bowel

So far I can only pass on my mother’s “wisdom,” which is that we should root for the Forty Ninnies/Thieves because they stopped Atlanta–which she holds an understandable grudge against–& their GM is a graduate of our local state U (as are we). Probably won’t bother me too much if they lose, though.

As HempRopeAndStreetlight pointed out in another thread, Amazon.com is now firmly in the anti-gun camp.

They can go fuck themselves forever. I’m cancelling my account and buying elsewhere (locally when I can.)

Please disregard the links in my prior comment.
