Given current trends, it seems things may become “sporty”, as CA puts it, in short order. I defer to you, the reader, as to your opinion as to when that may happen.
But let us ponder a thought experiment: if you knew, with confidence, that Ugliness was to occur within 5 years (or 10, or 1) what would you do to prepare?
Would you do things differently now?
How would you get the know-how?
What about logistics, etc if there was a firm deadline?
And especially, from whom would you obtain truly useful medical know-how, in a field where experience trumps education and degrees?
Various of the medically inclined readers (to include myself, Aesop, and Ivy Mike) are developing a series of medical prep posts. With profound apologies to Ms. Rowling, we rather jokingly refer to this effort as the “Hogwarts School of Grid-Down Medicine and Wizardry”. Our intent is to prepare you for the day in which modern Western medicine is unavailable. This may be due to lack of electricity, wilderness expeditions, adverse weather, zombies, or whatnot.
While we intend to capitalize on as much previously developed content as possible, we will not simply collect or regurgitate information. This is a School, after all. As far as possible, we will encourage doing.
