Mega Disaster Special : New Ice Age

Good on the coming Maunder Minimum.

They attempt to describe the many, many side effects.
War, famine, plague. Events like the Younger Dryas are essentially extinction events. They did mention the faster breeding cycles of animals like rats that were vectors for plague.
It's got a happy ending - Los Angeles is buried by mudslides.

If you only had $500 for a shelter what would you build?

For $500 dollars you aren't going to get anything fancy, however that will by you a pick, a shovel and a wheel barrow.

I suppose I'd try a trench design with a zig zag entrance using logs to cover the trench cross wise, stake out a plastic tarp over the logs and cover with minimum 3 foot of dirt. The limiting factor is how much weight the roof can take.

Nothing fancy but it might get you out of trouble. Hey, people survived Nagasaki in nothing more than a standard bomb shelter so there is always hope.

I really recommend you use the internet here but I believe you could get something done even with basic tools and low budget.

Good luck, let us know when you've got it completed, whatever design you chose.

these negroids are pissed off the cops killed some young black man - whether it was justified or not I have no idea - but their way of fighting the 'system' is to steal clothing, TV's and RIMS for fuck sakes!
