I like Australian football and I respect the game but things are a bit different here. The few Australians that play in the U.S. are either place kickers or punters. Both would get knocked around like rag dolls if they decided to try to tackle anybody here. It's a completely different game.

juicing may have something to do with that players get heavier and die sooner than they did pre-juicing. http://www.boston.com/lifestyl...

So the fear of radiation from a failing nuculer power plant is keeping America from building new plants to replace the old ones? what is the cutoff date for these old plants the day after they fail. btw if fukushima is your reason for not building a new power plant remember it took a mag.9.0 earthquake and a tsunami and failed later do to a fuel safety issue. chernobyl is no reason as it was the soviets they cared nothing for the environment or it's own people oh shit bad example just like america

well older farmers from just a few decades ago were not just farmers they had to have more skills to make a living. A (small farm) farmer had to have experience as a mechanic,wielder,plumber,electrician,carpenter and engineer/problem solver. I grew up on a small farm with old failing equipment.

I would build my base in a home depot preferably in a large shopping complex near the outskirts of a city take it over with a gang of some what skilled people.(no lawyers or politicians) A home depot or any large hardware shop would provide lumber ,weapons,tools cooking fuel and bbq's and loads of batteries.homes and near by shops could looted for food.
