thats all

DraculasDixieNormas Thu 29-Oct-15 12:34:29

well I think the preppers would like their own topic but because mnhq haven't given them one they've taken over this one instead

BrendaandEddie Thu 29-Oct-15 12:46:54

oh please let them have it as its fricking weird boring.

Mind you the day ANYONE sticks to the topic and doesnt just shove everything in AIBU

HoneyDragon Thu 29-Oct-15 12:51:23

Dunno, but I'm mighty peeved as when I take them over Tech nukes them whilst I'm still using them and THEN I get scolded when Mumsnet breaks.

Clearly blatant favouritism is at hand here.

It is favoritism. MNHQ want our stockpiles of gin when the SHTF.

Please feel free to join the thread in site stuff and ask them to just give us a bloody area so those of you not interested can hide us!

What the hell are preppers though?

Wolfiefan Thu 29-Oct-15 22:42:46

They are preparing for the zombie apocalypse I think.
In reality it's the cats we have to watch. They are going to take over the world. grin

well I thought the following;

1. It is weird that MN has an Ebola Topic
2. It is even weirder that preppers have taken it over.

I now know a lot more about peppers than I did this time last week.

Also I have lots of food in the freezer but prob not enough bottled water....

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 22:48:38

preppers

Wolfiefan Thu 29-Oct-15 22:49:10

I have gin. I will be fine. Or at least I won't care either way!

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 22:53:58

actually reading some of the other threads its a bit like extreme camping tbh

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 22:54:47

wolfie just like camping [hgrin]

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 22:55:25

oops thlgrin

No point in having food in the freezer unless you have your own power supply. Much better to preserve in alcohol.

Mamagin Thu 29-Oct-15 23:00:41

I have only seen this as it was on active. Are there chicken pox and measles topics as well? Or one for if you have a slight sniffle? Too many categories. It's daft!

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 23:04:07

best put those fish fingers in the vodka then, just in case......

Is it the food I need to preserve in alcohol? Or can I just pickle myself....?

winchester1 Thu 29-Oct-15 23:08:28

Depends where you live - our freezer is in the garage and would hold fine for 4-6 months of the yr as its minus degress most of the time.

Wolfiefan Thu 29-Oct-15 23:09:51

You know I said about the cats. DH went to bed without feeding them. One held his head in between her front paws and gnawed on his head.
I've seen the start of the apocalypse.
Goodbye MN. We've had some laughs!

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 23:10:43

to be on the safe side vv I would pickle yourself

vvviola Thu 29-Oct-15 23:12:19

Excellent Funny.

I think I'll get started now. Nothing like being prepared I was a great Boy Scout, me wine

Unacceptable Thu 29-Oct-15 23:17:52

Why is there an Ebola topic?
Why?
A preppers topic seems to make much more sense anyway

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 29-Oct-15 23:18:48

Wolfie provided you have an inflatable canoe then you will be fine. Leave DH to the cats, tis every man for himself

and wine vv thlgrin

I think the logic behind the Ebola take over was:

1. We needed a little used topic
2. It sort of fitted the subject matter

I don't know about the rest of the preppers but the Zombie Apocalypse is just a joke for any number of things that could happen. They range from likely and possibly imminent (earthquake for me, here in the Cascadia region) to less likely and probably not imminent (Yellowstone supervolcano, disease outbreak, serious climate change issues).
