The beginning of the end. Fucked.
Sure, Soviet cosmonauts had to face the difficulties of space travel, which were tough enough.
But what if they happened to crash land in some unknown territory? At the height of the Cold War? What would they do? How would they survive and contact their countrymen? What if they encountered hostile animals or other humans?
For all these reasons, the cosmonaut survival kit that our friends at The Appendix dug up is remarkable.

Too many scenarios to cover. Don’t be fucked.
Sorry, couldn’t help it after the Battle Mug post, this seemed appropriate even though I usually only post 1 weird weapon or gear related post every Friday.
Have you ever wanted to be tactically ready while grilling burgers? Now you can be with the Tactical Chef Apron. Has all the real estate you need to hang and holster your BBQ utensils. Again, with the holidays around the corner, this might make for a nice gag of a gift to that one friend who’s all about “would operate with.” Only costs $34.99 so it won’t break your wallet. Link in title and below. Somebody get that dude in the 3rd photo a Battle Mug.
Also perfect for the Riot Police Officer on those long nights pushing back protestors. Don’t let a good bonfire or Molotov cocktail go to waste when you could grill some Ball Park Franks.
As seen in Detroit.
- Stage 1: Financial Collapse. Faith in “business as usual” is lost. The future is no longer assumed to resemble the past in any way that allows risk to be assessed and financial assets to be guaranteed. Financial institutions become insolvent; savings wiped out and access to capital is lost.
Underground shelters built in fear of a nuclear attack were usually cramped spaces with just enough amenities to survive a few months. When wealthy recluse Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson built his Cold War bunker in 1978, he decided to ride out the end of the world in style.
The subterranean paradise at 3970 Spencer St. in Las Vegas was built 26 feet underground. At ground level a 2-bedroom caretaker house sits on the property. In the backyard, ventilation and air-conditioning units jut up from the dirt. Rocks conceal stairways and an elevator that lead down to the AstroTurf-covered front yard of the home below.
With its own generator and fuel tank, the home could sustain life for a year with a fully-stocked pantry in the event of a nuclear attack.
Henderson’s underground retreat includes a pool, two jacuzzis, a sauna, an outdoor BBQ grill inside a large fake rock, a dance floor, a putting green in the garden, adjustable light settings to match various times of the day and a hand-painting 360-degree mural of locations familiar to Henderson. A one-bedroom guest cabana is located beside the pool.
A tunnel once connected the house to the office building next door where Henderson worked, but that property was sold separately after Henderson’s death and the tunnel was filled in. (via)
For your bunker inspiration.
The Syrian War What You’re Not Being Told
There are nine requisites for contented living:
HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure; WEALTH enough to support your needs; STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them; GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them; PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished; CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor; LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others; FAITH enough to make real the things of God; HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.
You can just give up or you can call SUPPENAPO.
