Too bad there isn't a PLONK button on FR.

woe to those who are left behind
Well done, you.
I like to get the packs of egg noodles and the various dried gravy packs.
Chicken Gravy, beef Gravy, Country Gravy, whatever - stores for years.
Toss in some fresh/canned veggies, home grown spices, rabbit or squirrel if you got it, you have a dam satisfying meal!
I must have 40 lbs egg noodles in storage and thats just egg noodles, not other types of pasta, tons of gravy packs, dried and powdered potatoes, various beans and rice, all that stuff can keep you alive and you can actually eat quite well!
You’ve got enough money.
$17 for 50 lbs rice or bread flour.
That, a water filter/purifier, and my tagline will get you well started.
Ingest feces and pass away
You got me there! JRandomFreeper?
PLONK...all your future posts will be ignored.
What happened to post #1?
Thanks for the link. I don't know how many useful sites I been introduced to by fellow FReepers.
My grand-kids call me “old days” which is older than “old school”...
Duh. Got it.
And I am older than dirt.
I have no idea. I just asked the moderator to explain.
Anyone remember what I could have possible posted that was offensive?
