    Buy cheap and pay often, - there is no substitute for stupidity.

    You wipe your bum after each crap, why don't you clean your teeth after every meal?

    There is no shame in being uneducated nor in being stupid.
    The true shame lies in knowing that you are and doing nothing about it.

    Only the living worry about dying.

    To the tobacco addicts - Smoke more and die sooner, so I can breathe fresh air. Thank you.

    ... but our wonderful government keeps a stock pile of barely 2 weeks of diesel (which this country runs on)

    Verdict: Not good enough, humans were given a brain but most hardly use it to think ahead.
    As an engineer it was my job to think ahead and perceive every possibility of what could go wrong and have a backup system or solution ready.

    I'm in unfamiliar territory here. I find myself agreeing with most of this.

    However, you defeat your own argument by knowing that the vast majority won't think and therefore won't prepare. At least get a decent mask. I look at what most people wear and think of how useless they are. Young and middle age people seem more interested in how the masks look, rather than their functionality.

    Get basic long life supplies and salt them away. Some vitamins. Get certified P2 filters and a snugly fitting mask. Yes, they are uncomfortable at times but we on the eastern seaboard have had a couple of solar minimum summers with lower temperatures so it's not too bad.

    And yeah, the penchant for paracetamol is a worry...

    Either you no longer have females in the house, or serious constipation.

    An 8 Pack lasts me easily a year, or longer, at my workshop. It's only me.
    Home is a different matter.

    Brother retired from the mines in WA on Friday. Flew into Perth and went shopping.....no TP to be found in ANY supermarket around his area. None.

    Any other sandgropers have this happen? And no, not the retirement...
