  • Uhh, I think you need to do the basics first. Water. Specifically, clean water. Rain water spoils over time (about a week), meaning collecting them in certain days won't save you, esp since depending on where you live, it may not rain for months. So unless you have some way of filtering the water which you collected, you're not gonna last one year. And drinking spoiled water will result in you losing more water than gaining water.

  • Just imagine getting stuck in a MALL though. You'd get food, clothes, books, toys, sanity... all that stuff. And the best part, since this is likely an apocalyptic scenario, you would get to hoard everything in all the stores to yourself without spending a single penny! XD

  • What about radishes? I’m told they have a good multiple cycle, are easy to grow, and and have a lot of much needed nutrition, even over potatoes. Also I learned from this I need to learn to make dehydrated foods, how to smoke meats and fish, and also how to garden in a way that maximizes my crop yield (and learn how to dry mushrooms for long term usage). And it might be important to attempt to get roof top access (which is possible, I worked in one) from inside. This means that further important crops can also be harvested and rain barrels can be set up. This is assuming the being locked in doesn’t mean locked in but just unable to get out and away from building. Yeah I know you said soil is important to consider but the compost can work better being outside and properly treated by the wildlife that can access the roof top. would honestly be smarter for his health (due to diseases) to....just use the roof to do his business over the edge of so it isn’ his living space....anyway. Sorry for the tangent m. Thanks for the video! Food for thought and something to consider for story ideas!!

  • You could survive for a long long time I would imagine. Especially if you aren't already rail thin. Most people honestly eat far more than their body actually needs. The 2000 calorie a day model is actually overkill for quite a few people. Let's say you are average to smaller framed, say 5'6"-5'10" and 140-160lbs. If you are fairly sedentary, like sitting around a supermarket all day, you likely only need around 1000-1500 calories a day to maintain a weight that is enough to stay fairly healthy. Maybe less even. I am 5"7" and 150 lbs. I lift heavy weights and try to stay fairly active. I only eat around 1500 calories a day and maintain my weight fine as well as gain strength fairly consistently in the gym. So even after finishing off the perishable foods the longer lasting stuff will go a long way. Not to mention while you may not be getting optimal nutrition you can still survive without many of those "essential" nutrients. Again, looking at the average american almost no one actually eats a balanced diet. Not to mention the absurd amount of vitamins and supplements at most chain grocery stores that you can get those missing nutrients from.

  • This is going to be my before watching the video guess, I’ll be back to edit it after watching. I reckon the best way to survive would be just to have a banquet of all the foods that will go off soon. I’m going under the assumption that the electricity is out. So my plan would be just eat as much fruit and vegetables I can before they go rotten, then slowly work my way to the preserved foods.

  • I work in the Dairy section of a grocery store. There was a time where the power went completely out, so you know what that means, fridge displays are a no go. We have to pull everything and bring it into the fridge because it was just colder in there. Why not put meats and what not in the freezer, might freeze a bit but it will be colder, and just be careful of opening it ?
