    Is this shortage related?

    With all the panic buying in guns and ammo, I can't help but think that other items are also being panic bought. For example, yesterday, I went to the grocery store and noticed 16 oz small curd cottage cheese is really in short supply. Coincidence? I don't think so!

    As I now sit peeping out the window all day, I use those empty cottage cheese containers to hold the bullets for my 7 round "clip".

    Survival 101 my friend:

    2. Cottage cheese

    4. Ammo

    Its all about the preservatives. Who knows how long you'll be in that bunker? Atleast open a window after the 3rd straight day of eating cottage-cheese, trust me.

    Large capacity cottage cheese containers?
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day
