Quarantine tips/hacks/advice - no malarkey

Recommended Posts

A few oontzers have posted some good advice since this pandemic occurred. Let’s keep the memes, politics, and general bullshit out of this thread and dedicate it to helping each other out.

 

@abrasivesaintdropped a helpful nugget earlier

1F0BD736-66FF-47CC-B72A-22E57C243083.jpeg.7e48bbb284f93937dd7370bbee8e55d9.jpeg

 

I’m forcing myself to workout by only watching shows if I’m using my elliptical or doing basic exercise like lunges, squats, sit-ups, pushups, etc.

 

My local grocery store & pharmacies are not stocked on some core necessities, so I went to the mini-mart gas station next door - it was full of frozen foods, vitamin C supplements, Cold-Eze, White Castle sliders 🍔 and a bunch of shit no one thinks a gas station would carry. Hardware stores are also great resources for every day necessities.

 

Since whitey took all the 🧻- I bought a bunch of Kleenex as a reserve. I’ve always been a big fan of wet arse wipes, I’m fully stocked, but I learned from a plumber years ago to never flush them. We keep small trash cans with scented garbage bags (Amazon) next to our toilets for disposal, all this panic may cause sewer blockage from people flushing “flushable” wipes - DON’T!

 

If the shit really hits the fan, stock up on the small things that are big in daily life people haven’t considered yet: coffee, coffee filters, condiments, spices, vitamins, Q-tips, feminine “napkins”, toothpaste, mouthwash, yada yada yada, all the little things you’ll need in the coming months when going to a store is a gamble 🎲 

 

...or neg me, just stay safe and alive.

This one fits in here, only because my friend's roommate is freaking out and unable to stay still.  She got layed off the Casino, she is used to seeing different people from the Black Jack Table and I don't blame her.

 

But on the real, she finds an excuse to go out and she seems to be hungry all the time. I told my friend to tell the roommate that I'm a ninja and I will shave her eyebrows myself.

I concur, the solution to polution is dilution, lets keep the  "no malarkey" content flowing to the same thread.

 

We do not really have the volume to break it out, I made a suggestion earlier for a crossfire alternative but that ship has sailed.

Also check sites FB groups like Freecycle and Buy Nothing. Via Buy Nothing I've gotten fresh citrus from two different people with trees. Fresh juice, marinade, screw drivers..

It started as a crossfire talk, but once it hit the populous it transferred here.

If you have Dominican or Mexican neighborhoods nearby with little mini marts or bodegas and you’ve never bothered to check them out, do it. They are hidden gems stocked to the brim with everything you could think of (NYC not included obviously, we know, we get it, you’ve been had bodegas) This psa is for those of yous (whites, mostly) who have no idea what I’m talking about. So next time you see those bare ass stop and shop shelves just know theres hope on the other side of town 🤣.

Been in there covering routes while working or hanging out with the local goons. Natolli's and Tony's are the legit spots on the outskirts of the northside of Chicago for Good food and anything else

Its gonna have to get worse before all of my hacks, tips, tricks come into play. 

 

When it does I'll share my knowledge step-by-step with all of you on how to make rope with a waist band, bow and arrow out of bic pen and paper, and many useful other things like shanks all while on how to recruit prison guards, I mean cops and national guards to move your contraband from zip code to zip code.  How to make tattoo ink comes in handy too it's pretty easy to.  Need fire?  I got you covered. Hand me a paper clip, pencil lead, and that's right, toilet paper.  

 

But let's just hope it doesn't get to that point. 

 

This isnt malarkey, this is anarchy.

My only advice is being out of work for months during a collapse is going to sting people a lot worse than a couple a weeks off because of the flu. If you can work, do so, and if you can't for whatever reason, find work. If you're an entrepreneur, or hustler adapt your hustle for what's in demand right now. I can't stress this enough. nobody can save you but yourself. Shutting down an economy is easy, ramping one back up doesn't happen overnight.

So I asked my cousin who is a plumber, also former Navy fucking Seal badass I know, he informed me that the reason they are able to call them flushable wipes is that they are safe for septic systems. They can be used but overuse will cause clogs. I feel like its a metaphor for life, but I don't mean to malarkey up this totally non redundant thread.
