So weird I was randomly watched this dude on YouTube taras kul eat MREs from different countries just the other day. I ate one before it was pretty good. I still have one I never ate from years ago, I'm tempted to try to eat or but I don't know when it expires.
Also, there are tons of videos on YouTube of people eating different ones, some that are over 50yrs old. The oldest I saw was a guy who tasted hard tack from the U.S civil war. Hard tack is something simple to make and last damn near forever, it's literally water, flavour and just a touch of salt. Bake until hard enough to break a tooth and you've got one of the first mres. They'd dip it in coffee to soften it, typically chicory since coffee beans were expensive.
Go to a military surplus store or buy them online. They're not hard to find and you can get them from all over the world. I've had a couple, nothing special, but they'll keep for a long time and give you a quick/convenient bite to eat in a pinch.
If you want to eat them all the time, you might as well just buy canned, freeze dried, salt cured, frozen or really just anything that has a ton of preservatives. I do like the pouches that heat up your food by just adding water, however.
Oh, I'd absolutely love to just chill and have a couple beers with you. I do all the friend things, it's just the word holds a high meaning to me, just like love. Strong words require very strong connections for me. I'm weird like that, I guess. However, it is very touching to know that you consider me a friend and actually look forward to me, it feels good to have even just an ounce of care from another. You're a good guy, for that.
To be honest, the word friend holds a very deep meaning for me and that's why I can literally count on one hand how many friends I've had in my entire life. If you are my friend, you are family. But, who knows? I dont want to take away from what you mean. I may or may not have issues with wanting to get attached to people... >_>
Like a puppy awaiting his master's return. ;)
I told you, no one and I mean no one, stays away permanently. I think I'll limit my on time here, but i probably won't leave on a permanent basis anytime soon.
Man, something tells me if we lived closer we'd be pretty good friends. :)
That makes no sense at all xD
