38 Item Sardine Can Survival Kit (video)

Although you can certainly do better putting together your own pocket survival kit (and probably save a few bucks too), the Coghlan’s Survival Kit In A Can is an interesting idea. I can say that there are several items I wouldn’t be interested in (such as the bubble gum, tea bag, and nails). In addition, I don’t particularly like the fact that once opened it can’t be sealed again but for the price and if you’re looking for something to toss in a small survival kit then this could be an option but I would strongly encourage you to try to put together your own kit even if in nothing more than an Altoids tin…

ROBOCOPP Grenade Personal Alarm (video)

The Robocopp Grenade offers an interesting way to get attention with a 120 db siren and at less than an ounce it’s easy to take with you.

7 Things You SHOULD Barter With During SHTF (video)

He makes some good points in the first minute and a half–and near the end–about what NOT to barter with and why (here’s a previous video of his discussing what not to barter with).

Personally, I’m not a fan of planning to barter for a variety of reasons but if that’s something you really feel you must plan for then these suggestions may be ones to consider, including comfort beverages (such as coffee), toilet paper, leisure items (like a deck of cards), and more.

On second thought, I’d keep the toilet paper. 🙂 Here’s the video…

Why Fish Antibiotics Are Logical For Survival (video)

Dr. Alton (of DoomAndBloom.net) uses some good old fashioned logic sprinkled with some doctor know-how as to why fish antibiotics are–in most cases–no different than human antibiotics. Near the end he also points out that regulations may be coming soon to make it more difficult to purchase fish and bird antibiotics…
