Right there is a huge part of why so many freak out during an emergency. IOW, on the average day they would have two cans of beans and call it good. Let's say a quarter of them don't have a manual can opener. Then of those 75% who have the means and sense to open a can, half of them would let their kids die on the spot rather than serve them cold beans out of the can.
I doubt it. First, if you buy two extra cans every time you go the the store, you have dozens of extra cans at the end of the year. As for your other points, most people do have a manual can opener someplace. If they don't they will find something to open it with (a knife will do) and will eat pretty much anything at some point. Hunger is a great motivator.

That’s not what I said. The author was saying BEFORE he started prepping he would only buy 4 cans. I meant he and most of those “starving” creatures would have on average 2 cans on any given day.
