DIY Survival

A Profoundly Depressing Book
" Don't Try This at Home"

 It appears Lofty Wiseman is caught up in the singularity of his survival skills. "Don't try this at home."

And here is what the book has to say about firearms, after showing page after page of fighting techniques (noting that you are in big trouble if faced with multiple attackers, or someone with a knife, or are physically smaller than your assailant):

Firearms represent more of a risk than a serious form of protection… attitudes to arms vary enormously around the world… the legal requirements in Britain, however, probably give the safest guidelines for owning and storing weapons.

This paragraph would offer more comfort to those that aren’t martial arts experts and physically dominant if it wasn’t preceded with page after page of dire outcomes for those that aren’t big and trained to fight. Violence is certainly not rare, and it is a strange society that basically tells you to run for it and hole up in your home with extra deadbolts and not even to be outside in the first place in many situations. These are “safe guidelines”?

A sad book, indeed.[Carl from Chicago]

The Tinny Bravado of Eric Holder
I suppose we should be grateful Holder is calling Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a coward, rather than describing the American people as "a nation of cowards" (as he did earlier this year).
