Prepping (for Brexit)

Recommended Posts

Have decided to boost my larder with extra dried stuff (well stocked with canned) after the weekends scareganda in the media so I can last six weeks without having to fight the local retards in the supermarket for basics.

Have also added some bagged popcorn to the list as comfort food while I watch the mayhem of the fuckwitts.

In 2008 I was an OO with a big house and I had loads. Garage was replete of sacks of rice from Costco, stacks of 24-packs of beans, all sorts. The world didn't collapse as I expected and it took several years to use it all up.

This time I'm a renter in a tiny flat so just have to shove what I can under the bed.

Yep, I prepped early.  A few weeks of buying extra and I have a cupboard full of tinned food and a maxi pack of toilet rolls in the workshop.

I don't see any serious supply-led shortages but people panic buy at the slightest thing  so I wanted to be in the position of being able to avoid the shops for a month.

I haven't put any water in reserve as it beats me how that could be affected.

If there's a fuel shortage then I can work from home for weeks.

Sorted.

Bollocks, I can walk to work. However thinking  further about this it will probably be too dangerous with all the zombies wandering around looking for the last tin of meatballs that @stokiescum is hoarding.

You could just say that you had relocated to stay with stokie so that you didn’t starve to death.

True or barricade myself in to the nearest IKEA - death by meatball and Daim bar. No scrap that, nearest IKEA is Croydon, I'd rather take my chances with the zombies.

I shall adopt the following, works for all types of snowflake.

The problem is in a TEOTWAWKI event, the power goes out and you lose the lot. Better to have freeze dried stuff. Vesta curries.

thats armagendon time,thats when i go native up the moors with my macheti.lots of sheep up there you see.you would be surprised how cool you can keep stuff if you dig a hole 2 ft deep and line it with straw.and wood for cooking is easy to get.but by then your going to be attracting the locals for a free barbique.on a seriese note its less hastle to buy a 300 quid caravan and put it in your yard ie cooker built in.but you cant beat tins hot or cold i used to go camping and not bother warming any up.you can buy milk with a long shelf life and live on tins and cereal.for a month easily.

Dunno.  Vesta curry reminds me of my childhood. The treat for Saturday night. My parents knew how to treat us well. xD

I have vague memories of Vesta beef curries in my childhood. My mother, for reasons best known to herself would serve them with a side of sultanas and chopped pineapple!

the best thing is about a caravan particualy if its old is its great storage and often cheaper to buy than a shed has its own toilet,heating is more secure and has a cooker built in.you can let the kids play in it in summer or use it for drunk guests.

That would be a kind interpretation. I would liken her culinary skills more to the old woman in the Vicar of Dibley who put the weird combinations of food together with a dash of lunacy.

I’m getting my last ever German company car delivered next week.

I just hope it doesn’t break down during the lease as parts will surely be impossible to come by (although clearly it doesn’t matter if the emissions control system, indicators etc go, as they’re unused or not used anyway).

      Channel 4 have an upcoming feature length "movie" starring Benedict Cumberbatch about the referendum.
      Any predictions on how good or bad it will be and which side it will portray as right/wrong?
