TEOTWAWKI Toilet Options – Part 2, by St. Funogas

(Continued from Part 1. This concludes the article.) Proper Two-Year Composting System There are various types of composting toilets but the remainder of this article refers to the inexpensive types, not the fancier commercial ones that compost in a chamber below the toilet. I’ll let you explore that option on your own. Proper humanure composting uses a two-pile system and only a small percentage of the material in the pile will be humanure, especially considering that your poop on average is only 25% solids. Once your compost pile has received humanure material for a year, plus kitchen, farm, yard, and …

Letter Re: Constructing a DIY Composting Toilet

Dear Editor: In regards to “Constructing a DIY Composting Toilet”: That urine could be a valuable commodity for those that might need to improvise their own black powder one day. I respectfully submit this website link, which explains one way the Old Confederacy manufactured nitre (saltpetre.) A chemist named Jonathan Harrelson in 1863 figured out how to create more potassium nitrate or nitre by extracting it from urine. The men were all away fighting. But women could collect their urine out of bedpans and pour it into a huge truck pulled by a horse around town and they would make potassium …

Constructing a DIY Composting Toilet, by SF in Oregon

Here is my description of my do-it-yourself (DIY) toilet that works like a charm. This is how to deal with the “S” part of when the Schumer Hits The Fan (SHTF). Of all the kludges I’ve built off-grid, I’m most proud of my toilet. As preppers, we tend to spend a lot of time on food (what goes in) but not so much on sanitation (what comes out). If you are on-grid with a septic system, great. But as many folks in Texas recently discovered with their once in a generation below freezing storm and subsequent power outage, without water …

TEOTWAWKI Clothes-Washing System, by St. Funogas

One thing we take for granted in this day and age is the ability to throw our clothes into a machine, forget about ‘em for an hour, then come back have them all nice and clean. When I was born, my military family was so poor my mother washed diapers for two babies in the bathtub. Not only was it hard on her knees but also on her petite hands as she wrung out all those diapers before hanging them on the line. The day my dad made third class he borrowed a crow (third-class insignia) and wore it home. …

Getting Started with Cloth Diapers – Part 2, by ADC

(Continued from Part 1. This concludes the article.) Cloth Diapering when TSHTF It is important to remember that SHTF is a spectrum. The S is H-ing TF right now everywhere and H-ing extra hard in several places. I, for one, have broken the seal on my SHTF ammunition reserve. Yet, the electricity and the plumbing still work. We can continue diapering as normal, and don’t have to hope that the shelves aren’t stripped of diapers, and that the store hasn’t shut down because of the pandemic, and that rioters haven’t burned the store down. Detergent is the only diaper supply …

Getting Started with Cloth Diapers – Part 1, by ADC

Introduction People who are interested in preparedness are naturally drawn to cloth diapering, because cloth diapers provide a degree of independence and resiliency that cannot be had with disposable diapers. Toilet paper shortages in the time of COVID have gotten a great deal of attention, but there have also been shortages of disposable diapers. Cloth diapers might even be the ideal prep: it is simple, affordable, and socially acceptable to choose to diaper your baby right now in the same way as you would have to diaper you baby post-TEOTWAWKI. The easier it is to practice a prep, the more …

A Primer on UVC Light – Part 2, by Dr. David J.

(Continued from Part1.  This concludes the article.) Area Disinfection For area disinfection, an unshielded UVC light bulb is put on a lamp and controlled either by remote control or timer. Many are purpose-built, but it is certainly possible to buy a UVC bulb and place it on your own unshaded lamp and use a generic remote control or timer. The UVC rays will neutralize microorganisms in the air and all surfaces that the light strikes. It can also be used to disinfect strategically placed masks, clothing and other items. In my opinion, the strength of area UVC light is to …

Prepping: 15 Things That Will Happen When The Economy Finally Collapses

We should all be prepared for what’s coming next.  In order to prepare effectively, we need to know what will happen when the economy finally collapses under its own weight.  The creation of money out of thin air could only go on for so long, and we are approaching the end.

Epic Economist put together a great video detailing the 15 things (and yes, some are a little scary) that will happen when the economy collapses.  At this point in time and history, it is no surprise that an economic collapse is coming for us. When the world’s largest economy is deep down in a recession, many other countries will not be late to follow the same path.

The financial breakdown the world is about to face over the next few years will be an unprecedented catastrophe, especially considering that the underlying problems from previous crashes were never fixed, only mended together. A real repair would require a complete restructuration in the system, and the elites were never interested in fixing the system that they set up to screw the rest of us.

These are the 15 things that will happen that you should be prepared for:

1 -Fuel Shortages, or rationing of fuel

2 -Carjackings rise

3- Interstate Trucking is compromised, limiting the supply of essential goods

4-Defaults in garbage disposal and urban sanitation

5- Food scarcity, a disruption in food supply chains

6-Water quality drops

7-The population gets on survival mode, one example of this could be the slaughtering of zoo animals for food.

8-Pets go missing

9-Civil agitation leads to turbulence in the streets

10-Attacks become more frequent

11-Kidnappings Increase

12-Gang Activity Increases

13-Banks Close

14-Hospitals become Overloaded

15-  Martial Law Enacted

Knowing that these things are likely to happen when the economy collapses should help give you an idea of what you’re going to need to be prepared.  Make sure you know how to defend yourself and your family. Make sure you have a way to filter water.  You will need to be able to avoid crowds and live on your own, potentially off the grid. Become self-reliant and do not put your faith in the system.  Most people are still desperately fighting to keep the system intact in spite of the awareness that it’s rigged and corrupt.  Instead, leave the system, put your faith in yourself, improve critical thinking skills, and create your back up plans.

Facing Lockdown in an Apartment – Part 1, by J.F.J.

Having recently moved from a home on a one-acre lot at the edge of the country to an apartment complex on the outskirts of a small town, I have had to change my disaster contingency plans to suit my new environment. Living in an apartment in the suburbs has the advantage of allowing people to have a comfortable environment close to city conveniences and entertainment. However, apartment living has its significant disadvantages when in dire circumstances. Communications may be cut off if landlines are damaged or cell phone towers are without power. Natural and man-made disasters play havoc with local …

Coronavirus COVID-19 Garbageman Intelwars Sanitation Twitter

‘It’s gonna be ok’: Sanitation worker’s encouraging message amid COVID-19 outbreak goes viral

A California garbageman’s encouraging social media post amid the COVID-19 pandemic has gone viral, after he inspired people with his message that sanitation workers will remain on the front lines during the ongoing crisis while reassuring the public that “it’s gonna be ok.”

What are the details?

Twitter user Jester D, who is reportedly from California, wrote a Twitter thread on Friday night that has reached hundreds of thousands of people:

“I’m a garbageman,” Jester began. “I can’t work from home and my job is an essential city service that must get done. It’s a tough job, from getting up pre-dawn to the physical toll it takes on my body to the monotonous nature of the job, at times it’s hard to keep on going.”

“Right now though, right now I am feeling an extra sense of pride and purpose as I do my work,” Jester continued. “I see the people my, my people, of my city, peeking out their windows at me. They’re scared, we’re scared. Scared but resilient.”

Jester added, “Us garbagemen are gonna keep collecting the garbage, doctors and nurses are gonna keep doctoring and nurse-ering. It’s gonna be ok, we’re gonna make it be ok. I love my city. I love my country. I love my planet Earth. Be good to each other and we’ll get through this.”

By Monday night, Jester’s post had been “loved” by nearly 500,000 people, and more than 10,000 folks had left comments either thanking him for his inspiring words, weighing in with their own voices of encouragement, or both.

Jester acknowledged the popularity of his viral message with a follow-up as it blew up on the social media platform, tweeting, “Wow you guys I don’t even know what to do with a viral tweet. I have nothing to promote and if I did I wouldn’t do it on this tweet. My heart is filled to bursting with this response to my words. I’m just a dude with a phone and a little spare time. Thank you.”
