@cerebrate Also, warships.

facebook groups as a replacement for a good website

holy shit. seriously, i'm not going to make an account on that trash fire just so i can look at your informational videos, can you host your informational videos on a site that doesn't require an account please

@alex ed(1) still works. As long as that remains the case, I will have confidence that the coming collapse is survivable for those who have prepared for it.
