We all talk a big game when it comes to who is the manliness. But in our estranged lifestyles nowadays, lets be honest we pretty much live like kings with food at our beckon call and entertainment at the click of a button. We haven’t really struggled in life for the most part. But what would happen if things got out of control? Like let’s say that the government shut down (wait that already happened) and Wall Street went into chaos (happened!) and lost limited resources. IF, and I’m saying if that happened, it’s probably noticeable that other things might fail too. Lets say that technology stopped working and regular things that we were able to do are no longer easy to acquire and use.
There was a study that pointed out that if we did lose technology, that it would take at least another 100 years to recreate the ballpoint pen. So considering that, it would take quite awhile to actually get back to where we once were.
So what would you do? Now that you’re basically in the depths of despair, ran out of food supply and have hardly any weapons to go hunting and to protect you and your family.
It is the month of October and is the season of the machete. You think that the machete is the tool of the season because of its use in horror films. However, it might surprise you to know that the machete can offer more than the decapitation of zombie heads.In fact, I would like to encourage horror film makers to re-think the use of the machete. This tool has been pigeonholed as a defense tool only; it being the preferred tool for zombie hunters. In reality, this tool has many sustainable uses that go far beyond defense.
