You Might Just Be a Survivalist If...

Anyone else find this hilariously familiar?

Actually, considering my Mom and I had an argument over the quality of solar lights just this past weekend, and I keep urging her to plant more edible fruits--scarily so. o.O

My verification word is "vatif", what's a vatif?

Well well, now you're beginning to think like one of US!!! Hehehe... :-D

Welcome. :-)

P.S. A Vatif was the rank of priest just below High Oriest in ancient Egypt--he generally saw to the needs of the High Court, except of course for Pharaoh and his family, which was the High Priest's job. There were generally around half a dozen or so (but this rank was dissolved by none other than Akhenaton).

Nice try, a word such as "vatif" wouldn't even be linguistically correct in Ancient Egypt :P

And it's too late, I've had a "be prepared for the worst" mindset since age 12 :P

But it was corrupted by Arabic! Even "Tutankhamen" is incorrect. :-P

So, Spencer, what does "rawimbur" mean? ;)

As for me, I keep building up a food storage here in my apartment, and then it gets eaten up... but this time I'm trying to restock as I use it.

Here at BYU, we're encouraged to always have food around for at least a couple weeks. Which is a pretty good idea, because even without big disasters, things happen (like my roommate spraining her ankle) and extra supplies around are pretty useful.

As I read the list I laughed at those items that described me. I also felt ashamed of my own weak & anemic paranoia when I realized the lengths to which some people have gone.

Thanks for challenging me to greater degrees of paranoid preparedness.
