Re: Book Review: Dies the Fire

I couldn't help but think about how useless I would be in such a future.

oh man, me too. it's not that i don't have some skills that would help me survive, but whenever my glasses break, i become instantly aware of just how much life would suck if i couldn't go to a one-hour optician.

maybe i need to learn how to make glass and grind my own lenses with primitive tools, *snrk*.

If I made it long enough for my asthma medicine to run out, I'd be unable to do any strenuous physical activity at all (at least by the standards that would obtain then), and a minor respiritory infection would leave me a helpless invalid.

Re: Book Review: Dies the Fire

Sorry I'm jumping in on this if anyone is still reading... but stories like this make me feel pretty worthless - between the glasses, the medication, the lack of really useful skills (such as planting knowledge), I and my family would be passed over for some ren-faire/SCA type :)
