This blog is intended to be an interactive workshop for the eventual publication of a comprehensive survival guide that, rather than being based on practical survival solutions, is designed to provide the tools and knowledge required to not only survive, but thrive in survival scenarios.
The primary goal of this work is to entertain; I am not an expert in survival, nor will I claim to be an expert on any of the subjects which I address. I approach this from the perspective of a creative editor, parsing, interpreting, and combining readily available information in a way that is ostensibly useful and palatable.
I will get things wrong during the process of writing this blog, and I look forward to receiving the benefit of your experience and expertise in the form of emails and comments.
It’s not uncommon for me to go back and revise entries based on your input, and that’s part of what I most enjoy about this labor of love.
The casual tone and coloquial language used in this blog should reinforce that this guide is meant primarily to entertain, and the ‘lessons’ provided are meant as mental exercises to pique your own self-education. Everything you read in this blog is based on my own personal interpretations, opinions, theories, or whimsy, and may or may not be of any practical benefit to you. Again, I’m not an expert, nor will I claim to be, nor should you assume that I am.
Also, a lot of the shit in here is obviously very dangerous to fuck with; and if I had to come up with one law of survival it would probably be: Don’t be stupid. Knives, fire, guns, chemicals, and all the other shit we talk about in here can lead to you injuring or killing yourself, so take every precaution, don’t just haphazardly try shit, and if you do, don’t blame me if you shoot a hole in your foot or set yourself on fire.
