If it is the end, why does the guy think he will need a TV?

He needs a TV to show the 10,000 DVD’s he has stashed.

White people are being forced to go underground to get away from Obama and his tribe.

If I were going to get one of those, you sure wouldn’t be seeing pics of it and it would be at an “undisclosed location”, far away from anyone. Oh, and I’d want it hardened and I would need a place to hide my airplane and fuel.

While I don't own a televisor device, I find the microwave more disturbing... Sheesh. A kilowatt of 2.4GHz turned loose on something that might be food?

The only difference between glue and gluten is 2 seconds in a microwave.

Unless you can build a magnetron, you shouldn't be allowed to own a microwave oven. And if you insist after that? You need professional help.

There is that for married guys.

I've been single and putting up whatever antennas I wanted on the roof for so long that I sometimes forget that.

Once upon a time, years ago, I pretty much lived in a garage when there were 5 females in the house. 3 minutes to do the standard issue military SSS thing, and they were knocking on one of the 2 bathroom doors.

Well, lets say everything is not totally wiped out, still may be someone transmitting. 2. maybe has a large collection of DVD movies and “how to” disks and tapes. I can think of more if you give me time.

Yes there is a small shelf which holds 5 or 6 remote TV and stereo remotes and has room left over for 2 cans a Chef Boyardee ravioli.

Have you ever babysat a genset or 4 for say... 179 days?

'Lektrikity is best made in bulk by large coal eating plants fed by trains far, far away. Not too far...

Gotta make it on property? Figure on severe restrictions.

Electric heaters are right out. Burn a mother-in-law or something.

I was off grid for over a year, and still managed to keep the laptop and a few other things going. But I figured out really damn fast what was important, and what I could lose.

You have to have gasoline for a generator. The question is “How long will you need the gasoline?” I have a friend in NW Arkansas who has a 300 gallon tank. That’ll run a generator for a long time but eventually there’s no gas.

The only sure way to have electricity is a solar system. And that’s expensive. Of course, doesn’t look like this guy spared any expense.

Horsecrap. The only sure way to have 'lektrikity is to keep Texas off the national grid. And keep the coal coming.

I've done that fiddling around at the edges thing for a while.

Ain't nothing like flushing a toilet and running water, and flipping a light switch and having light.

I want a LARGE community to survive and thrive.

Hell, I'm thinking about putting running hot water in next year. Seriously.

JFC on a raft. I just checked to see if this version of linux would support a VT220. Heck, this version suports a VT-50 and a VT-52.

Obviously, it supports the standard VT-100 terminal. How would I use VI without that?

More disturbingly, it supports a real tty interface. There isn't even hardware that can sink or source that much current.

Yep, it also has a 'line printer on fire' error message.

I'm effectively running legacy software from the '60s and '70s.

Apple made billions off the same platform.

I would want one bigger too. A monolithic dome comes to mind. Maybe a few of them hooked together. There is nothing worse than claustrophobia. Also, care must be taken to properly insulate any underground structure. You don't want moisture to condense on the walls causing mold and mildew. That would be a nasty chore to take care of with limited water resources for cleaning. Here is one monolithic dome being built:

I wrote a lot of code on those things back in the day, I can't remember now exactly what it was hooked up to.

But, my theory is that to resurrect our civilization in the event of a catastrophe, we will need some VT220s.

My shack in the mountain was 8 ft by 12 ft. About 8 ft high at the front, 4 ft high back where the cot was.

Lived there for over a year. That's a pretty roomy space to live in. If a crazy calf head bonks the front door, and walks in for coffee, it does get a little crowded, but there is space to walk on the ceiling, if required.

I watched the catz do that little thing while I stepped and fetched her coffee.

I have a friend who made his own hydrogen system and put it in his truck and it mixes with gas and he gets double the gas mileage now. Told me it will work on a generator too. Also said in time he can convert over to all hydrogen only. People like this will survive. He also is fooling around with batteries that run on salt water (sea water). I recently saw a thing that you can buy for about $700 that turns sea water into fresh drinking water. The people that are called Preppers know all this stuff I'm saying here.

Well, for those who didn't print out all those manuals (or get hard copy), the TV would be handy to watch gunsmithing videos...(especially if they are in VHS), not to mention I Love Lucy reruns...on tape/DVD, of course.

This guy’s shelter was on the Discover America(?) channel last night. He lives with his family in Wisconsin. The shelter is 20’ underground and made of corrugated ~circular~ pipe. The shelter’s storage is under the floor accessible via pull-up floor panels. As you can see in the picture there is quite a lot of space available under the floor. He has a generator, batteries and enough food and water for over a year.

The 42” flat screen is for DVDs.

He’s in there now with his family as the host specifically asked him if he’d be in there on 21 Dec. and he said definitely.

Well, lets hope he survives the end of the world in his luxury bunker.

I imagine the ticket for one of these completely installed, furnished and equipped would run about 70,000.

Hey, at least he got on TaaVaa...
