Potassium Iodide In Large Quantities

Potassium Iodide, the one prophylactic chemical every disaster conscious person should have in their arsenal in case of a nuclear disaster. Often mistaken as an “anti-radiation pill,” potassium iodide is taken prior to exposure to flood your thyroid with good iodine which in turn blocks the uptake of radioactive iodine. Standard warning, DO NOT confuse potassium iodide with iodine in tincture or other medical forms. These forms of iodine are poisonous! Many sources of potassium iodide tablets can be found online or in survival catalogs. My favorite source is KI4U. But what if you need a lot of it? You have a large family, a factory full of workers or perhaps you work for local emergency management and need a cheap way to protect a lot of people

Tiny Houses

Well I’ve been out surfing weird shit on the internet again and came across a rather fascinating concept: Tiny Houses. Tiny Houses are kind of like crossing an RV with a tool shed. Too small to be legally occupied if they were on a permanent foundation, they’re typically built on an 8’x12′ flatbed trailer. You know, the kind normally used by your local landscapers. They’re built from wood framing, just like a traditional house, but typically have around 65-130 square feet of living space. Now, I know what you’re thinking… How the hell does one fit all the features of a normal house into that small of a footprint? Well, this house is not exactly meant for people who likes to collect a bunch of stuff. If you

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR)

Doing some web surfing on alternative energy projects I stumbled upon a few YouTube videos comparing nuclear power to things like solar and hydroelectric power. In the comments of these videos I kept seeing mentions of thorium reactors and how much safer they are than the plants currently in use. I didn’t think much about it at the time, I’m already of the opinion that nuclear power is the way to go. In my boredom today I decided to take a closer look and see what all the buzz is about. As I write this, I find myself excited and pissed at the same time. Excited because there’s a new kind of nuclear reactor that’s inherently safe, can’t melt down, doesn’t require active cooling systems, uses less material,

I Told You So…

Ahh yes, the words no one likes to hear… “I told you so.” And yet as smug as they sound, the person saying them never really wanted to have to say them in the first place. For years I’ve preached the need for people to prepare for nuclear disasters. Everything from nuclear power plant accidents to terrorism to all out warfare. We live in the nuclear age, nothing will ever change that. Yet mention preparedness measures to someone and they think you’re nuts. Until of course something DOES happen. The disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, damaged by the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami, has created a run on potassium iodide (KI) supplies all over the world. This morning, KI4U.com had to stop

Japan’s Nuclear Disaster

When the Chernobyl nuclear power station melted down, the people of Europe remained unaware of the danger for far too long. As a result many people have died due to thyroid and other cancers simply because no one bothered to instruct them in basic radiological safety procedures. Now that the Fukushima Daiichi plant has started to burn, we are rapidly progressing towards a Chernobyl style disaster. Here is how the public needs to respond to protect themselves. Treat this as a radioactive fallout type of situation. Anyone down wind of this plant needs to begin taking potassium iodide pills immediately to protect their thyroid. KI floods the thyroid with iodine to prevent the absorption of  the radioactive iodine (I131). Continue taking KI for two weeks after the fires

How To Fix The Economy

Do a quick search on Google for “GDP.” The very top result is a graphical representation of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product. On the left is a series of countries you can select to compare. Select China and make a note of the latest trend. Wikipedia defines GDP as: “the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time.” In other words, the wealth of any particular country at a given time and thus the standard of living of its people. Now, remember the trend in comparing the U.S. vs China? Look again. Extend those trends out 5-10 years and you’ll have no trouble imagining China overtaking the U.S. as the world’s wealthiest country. “But why should this be
