    Hi Point Forum Funnies

    Well you know how the subject of SHTF has been
    popping up lately? I was over at the Hi Point Forums
    reading for fun and in the section Survival Zone a
    guy is asking if he can live off of dog food?

    I think I would take anything before that. How
    about a can of beans buddy?

    Anyone who ever tried the old C-Ration beef stew knows you can. That stuff smelled exactly like Alpo when it was cold.

    It only makes sense. He who relies on a Hi Point shall eat dog food.

    Actually, a bag of kibble is not an unreasonable thing to toss in the trunk at the beginning of winter. No way do you really WANT to eat it, so it will stay there until you NEED it. But it would work.

    For cheap stored food, though, I would go for wheat I could boil or sprout, in food service buckets, with a chunk of dry ice thrown in as you fill (leave lid loose until it all vaporizes and burps properly).

    We used to have a employee Al who everyday who open Allpo for our yard dog and he would take a bite to try it out needless to say watching it turns your stomach.

    So one day ASPCA comes in on a complaint that we are miss treating one of our dogs at other location. Al happens to be working there and the ASPCA says that it doesn't look like the dog doesn't have enough food. So Al opens a can and says" I give the dog some of my food everyday and I take some of his." Takes a fork and starts eatting right out of the can. ASPCA agent almost tosses his cookies in the office he walks outside to get some air and gets in his and leaves. Never came back. Wonder why?

    I've worked in industrial automation for decades, mostly in food processing, a bunch in meat processing. I've seen the stuff that gets sent to pet food companies from beef, poultry, and pork plants, and how it is stored and transported.

    Every varmint in my area, every squirrel, opossum, crayfish, rat, whatever, would have to be extinct before I'd start looking at dog food as a protein source.
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild) has been proven to be a bit of a fraud. And a fool, drinking his own urine straight. Les Stroud (Survivorman) is dah man, when it comes to survival shows.

    One of my chores as a kid was feeding our dog, and she ate canned food. The smell alone would make me gag, even after a dozen years or so. I can't imagine trying to eat the stuff willingly.

    Which brings to mind the film The Patriot

    Billings: I say we drink the wine, eat the dogs, and use the papers for musket wadding.
    Reverend: Eat the dogs?!
    Benjamin: Aye, dog is a fine meal.
    Reverend: ...Good heavens.

    I have eaten dog food in the past. (Some amount of booze may of been involved.) It is made by the same sanitation standards as regular canned food. So it won't make you sick or anything unless it is made in China.
    However on a pure survival standpoint I don't beleive it has the right amount of nutrition for you to survive off of it long. Not enough fat and vitamins. Also it is just as cheap if not cheaper to just purchase regular long term food supplies and learn how to cook.

    So could you? Sure. Would it be wise? Not so much.

    Just looking at what goes into it, I could argue that hotdogs would be worse for you than canned dog food in the long run, but it would probably spare you some looks.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    I see nothing wrong with it. I would eat all the nasty little things you say are in it if I were hungry enough. All I can hope for is fire and water.
