Ways to prepare for the total breakdown of society: Build a greenhouse
Top 10 ways to prepare for the total breakdown of society without looking like a (complete) lunatic
Disrespectful article on why people should make basic preparations. I realize it was meant to be funny -- but the author wasted valuable space to tell people practical reasons why each step would make people better prepared. You also wasted the time of the readership.
This list of items is minimal, and insufficient for real preparations (for any real disaster). You forgot the obvious, like heating, clothing, ability to cook without electricity and so on.
