    Civil unrest?
    Collapse of the economy?
    Nature?

    Can you hunt? Can you grow your own food? Have you stocked up on batteries, water, can foods etc...

    I haven't. If the shit hits the fan today i would have to do whatever it takes to survive.

    I got plenty of ammo to last a good while is SHTF. I know how to hunt and field dress animoes, how to grow veggies, but if a total collapse of society happened, not sure how well my limited knowledge of living off the land would be useful.

    Probably not as much as we should, but definitely have batteries, water, can foods. We are from L. A., so have been through our share of civil unrest & earthquakes.

    How long would Howard last with no money and no ass kissers to feed him?

    The one thing I don't have is a gun. There are plenty of deer nearby but I can't hunt them with my kitchen knives. Any recommendations?

    how many people alive today know how to butcher a freshly killed animal for food? how many could kill and butcher an animal? how many know when to plant, and which plants are the correct crops to plant so that you will have a sufficient harvest to last through the winter till the next harvest? how many people even know how to plant and irrigate crops?

    people will have to band together into small groups that are self-sufficient; how many people have skills which would be valuable to such a group and which skills would be sufficient for a group to be willing to share its supplies and accept you into themselves.

    most of us are dead.

    I dont put stock into shit like that. However, I am realistic and have seen what happened throughout history.

    There would be a major purge of the population from starvation. There is no doubt about it. Only the strong will survive.

    btw, i'm not especially worried about the collapse of society because i figure the polar ice caps will melt before then and i will be under a mile of water anyways.
