Raharu: Screw Gold. I'll be the post apocalyptic honey baron!

Gold for December delivery dropped $25.80, or 1.5%, to settle at $1,716.50 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

I saw an episode of 'Preppers' and the guy was melting down all his gold into a huge 'ingot'. He said this way he could use this to barter for anything- food, ammo, clothing, medicine, etc. My first thought was 'you'd spend that entire ingot on a bag of corn? you won't get change back'.

I'll trust my small collection of bottle caps in case those times ever arise. Now to gather snowglobes and bobbleheads with magical properties.

I saw an episode (same one?) where the guy was making his own ingots, and while they weren't stupid large he was still bragging about how they were worth a few thousand bucks and how he was going to use them to buy everything he needed, and I was left with the distinct impression that he had not thought his cunning plan through.

I've only seen one person on that show stockpile booze, which is the way to go, and no one stockpile knowledge/books. Oh, and on the latest episode these two guys were getting giant boners about the homemade IEDs they planted on their ranch, and how they were going to shoot any survivors from their hunting blind. The one guy then fires a shot in the enclosed space and the other guy went temporarily deaf. It was hilarious.

In Capital Wasteland, first you get the honey, then you get the power, then you get the women.

Honestly, I plan to use Honey after the economic collapse of America.


1. Honey is highly nutritious.

2. It can be used as a topical antiseptic, bacteria cant grow in it, its too sweet.

3. Its can be considered a luxury good, when traditional sources of sugar dry up, or become
super expensive honey becomes the sweetener of choice.

4. Honey Lasts almost forever. It may crystallize, but can be fully restored to a liquid state by slowly heating it. Ediable honey has been found in Egyptian tombs and restored to its liquid state..

Screw Gold. I'll be the post apocalyptic honey baron!
