Napalm, though...

Great. I think The King of Random (or his substitute Nate) could make an adequately cool video of using napalm on snow, but problems:
1. He lives in Texas.
2. I have made dozens of comments and suggestions and he has never responded to any of them. I have been downvoted though!

But for some people, the hunting is the point. Actually getting a turkey (deer, elk, or whatever) is incidental. And plucking birds is one of the reasons I don't raise my own chickens. Or turkeys: the neighbor up the road has a flock of turkeys (some heirtage breed, not the modern sort that can't even breed without human assistance) that occasionally wander into my yard.

As a matter of fact, yes, I quite often do. Especially when it's my own, or a good artisan loaf from a bakery.

I was thinking more along the lines of wonder bread


If I make homemade bread hot out of the oven it still gets some Amish butter

But I only eat bread 3 or 4 times a year, normal bread is of minimal appeal to me and I get psoriasis and asthma if I eat bread or milk to often
Cheese, real kefir and butter don’t seem to do that.

I just got off the phone with my brother. I told him the story and he didn't confirm or deny. He'd told me a story previously about how they had an [ironic] fire on the firing range. Instead of dealing with a fire drill, they put it out with machine guns.

Franz Bakery makes organic hemp seed bread.

I wonder why people eat eat Wonder bread. When I was in Basic, when they gave me white bread, I wiped my nose on it.

I never had enough tissue.

The "wheat" bread had just the slightest tan, though.

Wait a minute... You mean no more barbecue, feijoada and acarajÚ? What's wrong with you?

I have never even eaten tuna. I'm more used to white fish that has a shorter life cycle, and most of the fish I regularly eat has been actually farm-grown, instead of catched in the ocean or rivers.

Chicken is not out of question, and it is quite easy to raise and eventually integrate with some crops. I've already considered to try building a "chicken tractor" in the farm of a cousin, but I haven't gone there so often.

Most of these everything free diets are ridiculously unsustainable.
Because most of the fruits and veggies that are colorful, nutritious and flavorful are flown in by air at least most of the year. Then if they don't grow here they are brought in by air year round.
Unless you are just going to be eating beans and rice.

Where do the beans and rice come from?

Every time I found a nice vegetarian recipe it called for 15 - 20 ingredients and then I spent $50.

Blue Apron sounded ridiculously expensive, but not by comparison. They have a vegetarian version, but those seemed to call for eggs and dairy. I found Purple Apron, which is vegan, but they are weird:

Our 1-2 Person plan costs $72.00 per week and provides you with 3 delicious recipes feeding 1-2 people each.

Our 3-4 Person plan costs $80.00 per week and provides 2 recipes, feeding 3-4 people each.
They say that some recipes seem to satisfy two people, while others are only enough for one. Why don't they adjust the 1-2 Person plan so that every meal is enough for two?

The 3-4 Person plan would cost $40 per meal, plus leftovers. Somehow, I think I would rather go shopping every week.

Interestingly, they teamed up with Tom Brady, for meals that are high and protein and gluten-free. Don't worry! You can add gluten! https://www.purplecarrot.com/tb12

Mackerel, sardines and fresh anchovies (low salt) in olive oil for me.
