Re: Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant

Oh, it's deadly no doubt. The politicization is clearly on the part of those clamoring for permanent lockdowns and wearing masks inside our homes and the rest of it. The The studies are showing dust masks provide some protection if infected individuals wear them, but that it is "statistically insign...

Re: Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant

I'm pretty sure any virus will last more or less indefinitely. They don't go away. They are identified, catalogued, and tracked. The "Spanish Flu" that killed millions in 1918 is still around today. If you haven't got it yet, you probably will. Roughly half of Americans are going to contract it. May...

Re: 1992 Tuna noodles

No, no no! lol, I was there in 1992 ... and the Tuna & Noodles was a nice cream color.

When the little bottles of Tabasco started appearing, that was a big hit. Everybody thought that was the coolest thing.

Re: 1978 Chicken or Turkey, Boned Meal, Combat, Individual Review

Lead solder. Outlawed at some point right in that time period. Thing is, the lead seams are probably the only part that won't actually fail, other than the toxicity. There are different quality can linings available in cans, and the food will last a lot longer in the better quality linings. "Store b...

Re: Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant

Are the cases surging or just the testing has increased? I know we're all 9 months into a "2 week flatten the curve so the hospitals don't become overwhelmed" thing, so forgive my skepticism. I know it's dangerous, it does kill people. But the whole thing has a really bad odor.

Re: 2009 Tuna MRE Review

"If it's good, they will stop making it" seems to hold true with MRE. When the Cider first appeared I was not happy. Consequently I saved up quite a few of them. I learned to like it, so much that I determined it was a mistake to delete that. I have a half dozen maybe from a recent case purchase tha...

Re: 1993 Omelet with Ham MRE Review

A lot of people did not care for that menu. It was not my first choice, that's for sure. I believe it was nicknamed "Vomelet - w/ Potatoes R Rotten" . I didn't mind it too much, because it was filling. Eggs stick to the gut and leave a feller feeling full for a while. And they were almost edible, pa...

Re: Civil Defense Survival Rations

Not sure about those bisquits being any good, seems to me I recall it was a bit of a scandal at the time. There was a decided rush to procure these and numerous other items and distribute them, due to the Cuban Missile Crisis with the Soviets and other Cold War tensions. Many different firms got con...

Re: 1977 Beef Hash Food Packet Long Range Patrol Review

I think they are Pinto beans, actually? Rice and Pasta too benefit from extended soak or rehydration times. Hungry travellers will tolerate some crunchy bits, but. We used to carry a squeeze bottle of margarine, to boost the calories of the entree. Foods to be freeze-dried are prepared very lean to ...
