the only venomous snake we have in the UK is the Adder and cases of actually being bit are usually very rare, most times it will see you before you see it and be long gone before you get anywhere near.
20 people living in a house would be impossible, we'd need a huge house to start with, then there would be arguments, petty squabbles, to say nothing of disease which would rage through a household of such proximity.

My husband and I argued whether or not she had top teeth. Quite sure I saw bottom teeth.
It sounds like they (she) would not have survived if they were not discovered. Once your saw & axe breaks your done in Siberia... too bad she doesn't know what a RMH is but she was very opposed to "science."
hay is grass-she probably grew it in the summer. "she would not have survived"??WTH she survived for 70 years didn't she. an axe handle can be made from wood, they have trees even in Siberia, they were in the very first shot on the video.
and what will the human race do when there are no "fossil" fuels left? just sit on their backsides and wait for the end if I know the current generation and of course it'll all be the governments fault wont it-not theirs??
having been brought up in a city(I left 15 years ago) and having to "watch my back" my main problem is trust-or. rather a lack of trust. I stick to the old prepper mantra " if you don't know them, haven't worked with them, then don't trust them".
my only fear is other people and what they might do in a SHTF situation. British people are so divorced from their past that they have lost any skills they might have had and now rely on others to do those things for them, so in an event they will have no skills and knowledge to fall back on.
most people these days don't have a clue, they are just used to running to the supermarket whenever they run out of stuff cos its always there, they have no concept of the "just in time" delivery system and don't know we are "9 meals from Anarchy", if the power went off for more than a few days people would start panicking and start blaming the government and EXPECT to be fed by someone or other-but its never their fault-oh no.

it is perfectly possible to live without electricity, we didn't have electricity in residential houses in the UK until the early 1930s-some didn't have it until the 1960s, wife and I have both lived without electricity for long periods(separately) so its perfectly possible its just a matter of adapting, but some who have never known anything different may have trouble adapting.
if you catch wild rabbits and pen them up they will die cos its not natural for them, either kill them and freeze the meat or if your going to breed rabbits you need to buy domesticated rabbits bred specifically for that purpose.
"Eat what you store & store what you eat" and "Rotate, rotate, rotate" these are the 2 fundamentals of food storage. don't buy anything you wouldn't normally eat, it'll get left at the back of your storage. look for reduced prices, 3 for 2s, and don't be too proud to clip coupons. don't buy everything in the same store if possible in case there is a batch recall-that way you don't loose everything.
There are far too many people out there who state "it'll never happen" or "if it does the government will save us", most of the time its the government who are the problem. governments don't prepare..people DO.
The problem as I see it is that the human race has come so far in terms of technology, something that previous civilisations didn't have, that we rely on so heavily that when eventually some thing in the chain breaks we have further to fall as a species than anyone that went before us. that's why I prep, I don't know what coming but its not going to be good and I want to be ready when it arrives. if nothing happens then fine I've got some resources that can be shared out after my death but I would rather be proved wrong than proved right.
