List always peak interest and spur discussions. Though I do not believe that an 'real' prepper would ever Under Rate Duct Tape!

Disagree on the glo sticks. I used to stock those but their shelf life is so short the darn things were useless everytime I pulled them out.

Something we’ve decided to use rather than candles: AA battery-powered wax candles.

We live in an area with violent earthquakes and an open flame is dangerous. We use these LED-lit candles once the sun goes down.

We’re now looking into solar panel-charged battery systems as a way to keep from buying batteries. So far I haven’t been able to find batteries that will hold a charge longer than four hours.

The candles themselves are expensive but we really like them. They do not contribute to the ambient heat during summer but still provide the illusion of warmth at night during winter.

Petroleum jelly and tequila?Is that for survival or did you have something more interesting in mind?

Check out the Krill lights. Web page here. I used the hell out mine when I was deployed. Batteries last a long time, and it doesn't wipe out your night vision.

I passed on saying anything about that... But that was my thought, too.

But heck, everyone has hobbies. Gotta stay busy when the power goes out. ;)

#9 for me would be Frank’s Red Hot and/or Tabasco green.

LOL! I'd say they fit into both categories, but I don't know what the poster had in mind.

Agree.

I think bic lighters, duct tape, and to a lesser extent, ziplock bags are prepping essentials.

3. Bullion Cubes

i) Bullion comes in cuboids, not cubes

<.center>

ii) Bullion coins are generally more convenient for trading

iii) rather than trade, why not store actual soup fixings?
