    We’re seeing some strange things in modern society and all signs point to the fact that famine is coming. Within the US, drought on the plains is making is so that winter wheat can’t grow while up in North Dakota there’s so much water that farmers’ fields are too waterlogged for anybody to do any planting. I have my suspicions. American farmers that are able to get out into the field are having a hard time finding critical components they need to their machinery. Two children were just hospitalized due to a lack of infant formula within America. When have...

  • Will ‘Victory Gardens’ Make Comeback As Global Food Crisis Worsens?

    Zubu Brothers ^ | 3-7-2022
    Spring in the northern hemisphere is two weeks away, and interest in planting gardens could rise as the breadbasket of Europe was choked off by the Russian invasions of Ukraine, jeopardizing global food exports resulting in skyrocketing prices. Even before the turmoil in Ukraine, American households were under pressure due to soaring food and gas prices. The invasion just made things a lot worse as commodity prices jumped the most last week since the stagflationary period of the mid-1970s. New UN global food price, released on Friday, showed global food prices in February surpassed a previous record set in 2011....

    The clear winners in inflation are those who require little from global supply chains, the frugal, and those who own their own labor, skills and enterprises. As the case for systemic inflation builds, the question arises: who wins and who loses in an up-cycle of inflation? The general view is that inflation is bad for almost everyone, but this ignores the big winners in an inflationary cycle. As I’ve explained here and in my new book Global Crisis, National Renewal, the two primary dynamics globally are 1) scarcity of essentials and 2) extremes of wealth/power inequality. Scarcities drive prices higher...
  • COVID-19 drug remdesivir may prolong hospital stay, researchers claim: Study on veterans hospitalized with COVID-19 concluded that remdesivir was not associated with improved survival

    While several studies, including a final report from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), have concluded that remdesivir in coronavirus patients can speed the recovery process, a new study published in JAMA says it may not shorten hospital stays for all. The study, which focused on U.S. veterans who were hospitalized for COVID-19, concluded that remdesivir was not associated with improved survival, but was associated with longer hospital stays. The drug was granted emergency use authorization by the FDA for the treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in May 2020, and the Infectious Diseases Society of America and NIH currently recommend...

    Contrary to online claims, the Omicron variant of COVID-19 does not have a 100% survival rate, as some social media users suggest. The variant identified by the World Health Organization as a variant of concern on November 26, 2021, has been a contributing factor in worldwide deaths.

You’re statistically more likely to die from literally anything else” is viewable here Similar posts are visible here and here .

  • Lessons From An Underground Economy

    Zubu Brothers Blog ^ | 28 December 2021 | J.G.Martinez
    How is it possible to survive a nation with inflation rates of 20%/month and 1700%/year? The answer? The underground economy. This is the level of hyperinflation we have found ourselves with here in Venezuela, and considering the spread of inflation worldwide, it would be well worth the prepper’s time to glean what we can learn here. Virtually everything you read dictates inflation on this scale necessitates civil war. Yet Venezuela hasn’t seen this. Why not? Why are the streets not being taken by armed civilians? While the main reason revolves around 20 years of disarmament and anti-self-defense teachings, I would...

    I first planned to put out a post with this title weeks ago. But I got busy and yada, yada… Then Joe made his stupid, angry announcement attempting to force larger businesses to mandate COVID vaccines for their employees, and it made this idea even more pressing. What is the idea? Well, it’s certainly not my own. People have been thinking about this, and taking action toward this end, for decades now due to being able to see the once slow, and now very fast crumbling of the common structures that have supported our society, and our lives. Anyone who...

So In this thread I shall make it a bit of a "scavenger hunt". I will describe a place in the Continental US and you try to find it.
  • Bird brains left other dinosaurs behind

    Today, being "birdbrained" means forgetting where you left your keys or wallet. But 66 million years ago, it may have meant the difference between life and death—and may help explain why birds are the only dinosaurs left on Earth. Research on a newly discovered bird fossil led by The University of Texas at Austin found that a unique brain shape may be why the ancestors of living birds survived the mass extinction that claimed all other known dinosaurs. "Living birds have brains more complex than any known animals except mammals," said lead investigator Christopher Torres, who conducted the research while...

    There is currently a lot of attention being paid to new Democrat-proposed gun control laws, particularly House Bill 127, which would require national registration and licensing of all firearms, would ban broad categories of semi-automatic weapons, ban most ammunition magazines, and so on. One of the most frequent replies to these proposed laws is that there are not enough local or federal SWAT Team door-kickers to go house to house on gun confiscation raids, and if they tried, they would 1. soon run out of door-kickers and 2. instigate Civil War Two. But in the modern digital era, I...
