    No mention of beer?

        Warm, flat beer. Delicious.

        FWIW, wine/liquor made it on the list at #94, about 90 spots further down the list, and right after cigarettes and coffee. You'd figure those three would crack the top 20 at least…

    I'll second that. My garage went up a few years ago. 200 foot flames. Lost everything.

    I have a shed now for anything even remotely flammable.

    Amend to read "about 90 spots further down the list than in every real SHTF scenario ever encountered."

    Think back to Katrina. MRE’s and freeze dried Mntn house were next to impossible to get…..the govt was buying it all.
