We have no Internet how will we live this is endtimes

30 Jan

Hello everyone, stuck on Mount Tamborine with no power, no running water, and until this minute NO INTERNET!!!

Six adults, five dogs, six chickens, and one baby who we’re considering eating.

I hope everyone is safe. What a thing, how scary, never seen anything quite like it.

Will write again as soon as we all calm down, and have a reliable power source.

    Good to see someone has their priorities right in the restoration of essential services. Internet obviously should take precedence over things like running water and grid-reticulated electricity.

    All that has happened is probably karma. It was the desire to go to Mt Tamborine that would have attracted the karma. What is the betting that someone failed to shut the gate in the rabbit-proof fence as your party crossed over the border, into Queensland?

    Good thinking. Eat the baby first as it would be cruel to expose a child to what is going to happen next. Then eat the dogs before they get hungry and start eating the chickens. Then, if you’re still hungry, eat the chickens. You may not have to eat the chickens as you should be rescued by tea time.

    Oh I dunno it usually takes more than a couple of days without the internet to break down people’s objections to cannibalism. I’d have thought after a week with family and friends that the baby might not be the first to go….

    Hope you’re back online before we find out 🙂

      LOL. I bet you are safe and dry with no food issues. How would you like it if you had to keep your chickens in the bathroom? LOL.

        Chickens in the bathroom, eh? Try the baby roasted over a slow fire, with a chicken at each end of the spit. Don’t cook too much at once: leftovers in the Qld climate and no refrigeration, not recommended. 🙂

        LOL!…I have six chickens -named after the Monty Python team – (there are two Terry’s)…and they’ve been pushing to be allowed to have a shower for yonks – especially Terry!

    SteveS is so right to suggest the chickens be last to go, as they (I hope) give eggs – are they roosting on the shower rail? I just hope you have some dry firewood, a stock of wine, and plenty of kibble for the doggies.

    Everyone knows chickens belong in the breadpan, peckin’ out dough.

    Just remember,if someone shouts ‘fire on the mountain’, run girls run!

    If you have chickens, you have eggs to make omelettes, mix in some herbs…you’ll be satisfied for hours….and only one pan to wipe clean.

    Hmmm. Tallow can be used for candles.

    So, perhaps we could all post you our mothers-in-law, and you could melt them down for their fat.

    The candles would brighten up your days, err, nights.

    And based purely on a productivity assessment, i. e. without discrimination, the fattest one would be chosen to give their all first.

    Now, if only I had a mother-in-law at the moment! Don’t you just hate that…

    Oh well Jennifer, nothing’s happened while you were gone. Labor just imploded in a disastrous couple of days…. And all I can think to say is that it is a pity. You might want to consider staying on the mountain damming the flood-waters in and declaring yourself an independent state!
