Ed-vise: Survival

A monsoon season GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, PISSING rain this morning. PISSING! At least it’s not windy. I hate wind.

What Would You Do Wednesday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s WEDNESDAY! And I do love WEDNESDAYS!

There is NEVER a shortage of scenarios to run the mind through and ask yourself What Would You Do.

If you want a few scenarios for the weather related stuff, simply read any headline coming out of Ukraine.

As you know, Russia invaded Ukraine because Poo-Tin wants more real estate. Simple as that. Well, winter is setting in. And winter in Ukraine is C-O-L-D. It’s not Siberia cold (which is simply STUPID COLD). But it’s still COLD.

Technology and ready availability of luxuries, like electricity, have made a very dependent world. Humans were around before mass production of electricity so they (and we) know how to deal with the elements. Modern humans, I think, have kinda forgot.

Forgot how to build a fire. How to build a shelter. How to forage. How to hunt. How to fish. Shoot, I bet there’s a bunch out that that can’t even swim or tread water.

Basic necessities are food, shelter, and clothing. I think warmth should be one of those as well. But I don’t make the rules.

With winter coming in this part of the world as well, What Would You Do in the event of a power failure. Not just a blown fuse. I’m talking a major system/ grid wide power failure.

Keep in mind that hackers are ALWAYS trying to get into the power grid. Just like hackers are always getting into the Russian power grid. In fact, back in 2014, when Russia first invaded Ukraine, the Russians in Moscow had to deal with a total blackout because some silly ‘Muricans hacked their power grid and turned the lights off.

In Ukraine, the Russian are pummeling the power grid with artillery. Blowing up power lines and substations like it’s a video game. The people of Ukraine are having to figure out, on the fly, how to get through winter along with how to get to the next day.

So, do you know how to build a fire? You don’t have to be ashamed about it. It does take a little practice. Do you know how to build a shelter? It’s a perishable skill.

If you don’t, I am giving you some homework. (Groan. Eye Roll). Don’t worry, you will like it. Go onto Tik Tok or Instagram or Youtube. Look up the survival folks. There’s a bunch of them. Many of them, if not all, put out some very good information. Watch it and archive it on a separate thumb drive. Take some notes even. It’s good education stuff and good stuff that someday, one day, you just might need.

I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember the termite that plays in all the western movies is named…CLINT EATS-WOOD! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…oh that’s funny!
