The Last Blog On Vault-Co

Many of you have written me lately to ask if Vault-Co is winding down.

The answer is yes.

This will be my last post after 19 years of continuous sandwich board pacing with THE END IS NIGH on the web. I've been blogging before the invention of the word "blogger."

This blog will remain up as a placeholder until the page for my open source software CD-OS is launched.

I can't answer any questions on why this is happening. I am truly thankful for the regular readers of Vault-Co over the past 19 years and their encouragement. I figure that Vault-Co has easily had ten million hits overall since it started if you count it's first manifestation in WordPress. I have never promoted the site, canvassed for readers or attempted to link other sites here. Somehow ten million web browsers found their way here over the years. Not a single one of them has ever been pestered with an advertisement during that entire time. I have never tried to make a dime off this blog.

If you want to know why I started the blog to begin with ... it was right after I converted to Christianity after over a decade of regarding myself as an atheist. One passage in Ezekiel stuck out to me and a few weeks later I put my first primitive page up, a three column copy of the Drudge Report called "Texas Arcane's Survival Report."

Ezekiel 33:1-33

The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them, If I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and make him their watchman, and if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people, then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But if he had taken warning, he would have saved his life."

All Systems Go For WW3

China's new hypersonic scattergun ultimate MIRV for nuclear war

So much for the arms race. The race is over. China won.

In 1998 on Texas Arcane's Survival Report I advised shelter builders to expect the next war to be apocalyptic and plan for extended stays underground far beyond those ever recommended in civil defense literature from the 1950's.

My counsel has never changed. If you build, go deep.

Nobody likes an I told you so.

Read a couple medical books and some articles written about the fruit of the willow in 1992, have taken it every day since. When taking it in the workplace, one of the guys who warned me I was going to have an ulcer someday developed ulcers. I never have.


Take your Vitamin E, your Beta-Carotene A, your D and your aspirin all at the same go every day. Trust me on this. You don't have to go crazy like me and use the dosages I do (which I am not putting up here.)

Breathless Announcement of Old News On Vault-Co

Remember, it's not crazy when they say it. Until they say it, it is. Easy to remember.

Modern anthropology is a joke. It's just a political tool. They sit on this stuff for decades and then massage it sufficiently to get it ready for release and acceptance.

I was reading about suspicious hominid fossils in Europe well before any evidence of a presence in Africa back in 1983. So this is all kind of stale fake news in 2017.

Yellowstone Very Active

Big swarms and swarms of swarms.

If it blew everything would change in one minute worldwide.

One minute worldwide.

Survivalists and preppers would change in ten minutes into extremely farsighted people. Everybody you ever knew who made fun of you would be beating on your front door in twenty minutes.

Supermarkets would be cleaned out in a week, in two weeks there would be major problems getting food shipped in from distant ports, in a month if you didn't have storage food you'd be going hungry. In three months there would be deaths in third world countries from starvation and in six months the first really crazy hungry people would start to cause major trouble in first world countries. In a year they'd have run out of places to bury famine victims all over the world. Disease, warfare and migration would follow as natural as the wind and tides. Your local cop if he caught rumor of your preps from one of your neighbours would be flashing a badge and beating on your front door with a makeshift horde of deputies. "Are you hoarding in there, sir? Do you feel good about children going hungry while you sit on food in there? I'm going to have to ask you to open your door and come out or we are going to break it down in the name of emergency requisition."

Do you know those big backyard gardens that preppers are always showing off on YouTube? Those things would be like buglights for mobs. You'd come out at night and find a couple hundred people who cut your lock off the back fence and were pulling up everything by the roots. Chances are if you live in Australia you'd discover that heavily armed criminals would be able to take whatever they wanted from whomever they wanted any time.

All Sounds A Little ... Wrong

Survivors already contradicting official narrative.

I imagine most Vault-Co readers have already sussed out. I won't discuss this much here.

Will just say. Something not quite right about all that.

Deadlifts are Better Than Any Doctor In The World

I swear to you, it is true.

You could go to a doctor for what ails you for the rest of your life and never get tangibly better. Or you could deadlift and get over it. The medical industry is one of the most powerful and profitable industries on earth and they don't have anything in their cabinet of crank remedies that can come within a million miles of deadlifts.

Embarrassing and sad but I have not deadlifted in 7 years. I am ashamed. You are wasting your time in the in the gym if you can do them but don't do them.

I have been deadlifting 3 weeks and with little else changed have lost 9 kgs by just getting proper sleep in tandem.I am only guessing but I would say I added 5 pounds of muscle at the same time. This is pretty good for a living mummy born before they started work on the pyramids.

You're not deadlifting until you use wraps. Your grip will always fail before your lower back and legs will. Use wraps to hold your hands on the bar and lift slowly and carefully to failure.

Deadlifts are different from other exercises. You don't necessarily have to aim for a certain number of reps. Aim for failure around 6-10 reps (most people) and you'll be doing them correctly. Resist when lowering even after you have failed.

Words cannot really do it justice. I am supposed to be too old to benefit but two days after deadlifting it feels like every pair of pants I wear is two sizes too small, if you know what I mean ... and I think that you do.

The most amazing thing that never fails to astonish me is the indirect effect. I had been working my upper body as hard as is possible without a training partner but was only making very gradual progress. I added deadlifts and within three days of 9 hours a night sleeping I had changed from John Goodman into Arnold Schwarzenegger. Seriously. I got up one morning rubbing my eyes and when I opened them in front of the mirror promptly crapped in my own briefs. I have not seen that looking back at me for about 25 years. It is incredible how if you put in sincere effort you can make sincere results in a very short time. I bet if I had a training partner I could move from pretty darn good into incredible results. It is hard when you train by yourself but add deadlifts and suddenly things start to roll there.

Do you know what you really need to do deadlifts properly? A will to live. If you have that, you got everything.

It's not just these physical metrics, either. Your mind is sharper. Oxygen tastes better. It feels like your spine is not feeling any pain just moving around. It is really, really nice and it gets better the more you deadlift.
