- If war broke out tomorrow & all the food in shops soldout how long could you sur
Guy from work is borderline psychotic about this kind of stuff, after pretty much frying his brain on conspiracy websites etc….anyway another colleague bumped into him in Morrisons with a trolley full to the gunnels with dolmio sauces he was stashing around the countryside for just the type of event you hypothesise…anyway fast forward 3 years later to last autumn and he was desperately trying to off load it all onto food banks/homeless shelters as it was rapidly approaching its use by date…Posted 5 years agothebrowndogMember
I have a five year supply of freeze dried food in a bunker deep under my back garden. It has its own solar/wind powered generator, short wave radio, compost loo etc etc etc. If and when the world ends, me and mine will be fine till the radioactive dust settles. Don’t bother knocking.Posted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Pretty much self sufficient if push came to shove even though i’m vegi….mate owns a farm and has a large walled garden and orchard that is very productive although not much variety in at the moment for obvious reasons. He also owns a 2 large gun cabinets and approx 2000 birds (pheasants/partridge etc) so dinnae be getting ideas bout’ stealing our food 😉Posted 5 years ago
It’s a crappy scenario – no food but all other essential utilities working just fine?
On the water thing – anyone remember how uncivilised the folk of Gloucester (no sniggering at the back…) became towards one another a few years ago when flooding affected the water supplies and tankers were driven in? We’re only ever a few days from beating the shit out of one another for a few bottles of water. 🙂Posted 5 years agoallthepiesMembersomafunk wrote:

So your mate is OK, what about you though ? 😉Posted 5 years agonumber18Member
Considering in this scenario all the food in the shops sold out, we would presumably be the owners of all the food currently in the country, so I’m sure we’d last a few months each minimum, a lot longer if you bought the right stuff.
But, to join in with the spirit of the thread, based on what is in the house right now probably about 10 days but would be on the verge of starving to death at that point!Posted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Ha-Ha 😀 , quite possibly true but i hold the knowledge regarding N-P-K ratios in vegetation/bloom cycles for various vegetables and have an understanding of how PH levels in soil or hydroponics can affect the uptake of certain nutrients, i also know how to prune for max produce/fruit etc so i figure i am at least useful till he learns it for himself and tries to take me out (which i won’t allow, or at least i’ll sabotage to the best of my abilities). 😀Posted 5 years ago
