ONE MONTH IN A BOX

by Robert Waldrop

One 20 quart size powdered milk (4 pounds)

One 10 lb bag rice

Two 4 lb bags beans

Two 3 lb bags of macaroni

Three 13 ounce quick oats

Two 5 lb bags flour

One 8 ounce baking cocoa

One 4 lb bag of sugar

One 10 oz baking powder

One 8 oz baking soda

One 4 lb jar of peanut butter

One 1 qt bottle of syrup

30 miscellaneous cans (soups, vegetables, chili, etc.)

One bottle hot sauce

One bottle soy sauce

9 miscellaneous spice bottles

2 vitamin bottles

One 4 ounce bottle of vanilla extract

One 4 ounce bottle of yeast

One 16 oz bottle of jalapeno peppers

One copy Better Times Cookbook and Almanac of Useful Information for Poor People
I found a 23 inches by 21 inches by 10 inches computer box, and all of above food fit into the box, with the lid folding flat and would fit underneath a bed or table. .

The above would provide the following daily servings: (for one person)

2-1/2 cups milk

1-1/2 cups cooked rice

1-1/2 cups cooked beans

1-1/2 cups cooked macaroni

1 cup cooked oats

1 cup flour

4 Tbs. peanut butter

1 miscellaneous can of food Plus daily sugar and spice
I am not in the business of giving nutritional advice, but it seems that if a half gallon or so of cooking oil, another can per day and a serving of fruit juice (equivalent of another can) are added, which wouldn’t fit in this space, you’d be all right for a month. Depending on the assortment of cans, a variety of stuff can be made from these ingredients, including cinnamon rolls, oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, tuna casserole, etc.

4 AR15’s

This one is from “PA Prepper”.
Substitute AR15 for your favorite assault weapon if you like getting hung up on the details instead of looking at the meaning behind the story. – AP
 
 
4 AR15’s
Here is my logic:
1. Nobody should have just one AR15 for home defense. Your gun could go down. You need a backup.

2. If you have 2 AR15s, you have a primary gun and a back up. But, what if one breaks? You wouldn’t have a backup. That is bad.

3. So, you need 3 AR15s. If one breaks, you have a gun and a backup. You are good. This is the bare minimum.

4. Having he bare minimum is kind of risky. Why risk your life with the bare minimum? You need 4 AR15s.

And that is how it works.
