A gun? Not really. If things degrade that far, I'd rather have a means to get the heck out of there
So you want a means to get the heck out. How about a gun? Otherwise I'm thinking helicopter. Maybe a big long secret tunnel? Saying "It's ok guys, I'm leaving until the National Guard cleans things up" is not likely to help you if things degrade that far. Otherwise you need to be out before things get that bad, but comms and news might be hard to come by and you could easily miss that window because you're busy surviving and reluctant to leave your supplies behind. Better to have a gun and not need it sort of thing...
As far as generators go, I'd recommend propane if you can swing it. Better long term storage than gasoline. I saw these Lifestraw things recently, looks like a good item to have around and they're cheap.
Excedrin is an over-the-counter headache pain reliever, typically in the form of tablets or caplets. It contains acetaminophen (paracetamol), aspirin, and caffeine.
Maybe you should just buy a cheap bottle of generic aspirin instead of a brand name product that contains an ingredient you don't want and a touch of caffeine (readily available from all kinds of sources)
I was aware that I was comparing apples and oranges but the juxtaposition of two similar thoughts in apparent discord was amusing. Particularly if you assume sexist guy that "can't" tell the difference between two women.
You did the right thing, the guys worried about your gender weren't worried about doing their jobs or you doing yours, this means an office full of the daily WTF and some light sexual harassment to go with it.
A Senator choosing to pray is not the same thing, is not an issue
Oh yeah? For my rebuttal, I'm bringing out the big guns:
Seriously though, I know what you intended in context there, and this isn't exactly it. While it does concern me that we have elected leaders that believe crazy things, as long as they do the job and don't force them on me through the law, I can live with that. I don't ask about the personal beliefs of the guys that design cars as long as I can get one without that jesus fish thing on it.
