Nutnfancy started as just another knife enthusiast on Bladeforums. Three years ago, nobody'd heard of him.
Then he started doing knife reviews on 'Tube. Still all good.
Until he made a video where he tried to do a side-by-side comparison of a Rick Hinderer XM, and the Chinese knife which looks almost identical to the XM, even though it's not supposed to be a copy and there is nothing Hinderer can do to bring any kind of copyright suit.
Nut tried to tell people that they should consider the copy on it's design and construction merits, without the intellectual property issues. If I remember, he went on to state that the copy is a good value for the money.
You can imagine the kind of pitchfork and torch party this started. On a forum for knife knuts!
The world being what it is, outrage is as good a ticket to fame as achievement, and Nutnfancy gained himself a measure of Internet celebrity.
People with a speck of sense quickly realize he's a dolt.
Anyway, shortie, are you putting together a kit for this kind of situation, or is this more of a hypothetical "What would you need if this happened?" conversation?
For now it's a hypothetical, although some people here do work in an office environment, so I would like it to be a "realistic" hypothetical. It's intended as a general resource for somebody looking to assemble a get home kit, because you need to be able to get out of the building, and I'm not sure how many GHB's take that into account.
It's also part of an attempt to include some legitimate discussion of gear and preparedness in this forum. These are the kinds of threads that interest me, so I figured I'd start one.
Oh goodie, another bag to buy and assemble. The Get Your Ass Safely Outside Bag. (GYASOB). Rope/paracord to get you to the ground Breathing mask/dust mask (maybe the small SpareAir that scuba divers use) Swim goggles Breacher bar/small crowbar/hammer Hard hat (local ALDI store sold a baseball cap with plastic insert. Not enough for serious stuff but would stop you banging your head and its low viz.) Cloak of invulnerability. (Optional)
