SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “JWR”. Today, we take another look at tiny houses.
Tiny House Trend Continues
“Welcome to the world of tiny homes, most of them less than 400 square feet (less than 40 square meters), which savvy buyers are snapping up for their minimalist appeal and much smaller carbon footprints.
The tiny homes revolution, which includes those on foundations and those on wheels, began a few decades ago, but the financial crisis of 2008 and the coming-of-age of millennials gave it a new impetus.
The proliferation of home improvement shows on networks like HGTV fueled the trend, inspiring customers ready to personalize their own small living spaces.
Cost is one of the driving factors — a tiny home of just over 200 square feet with a customized interior can go for about $50,000 — a massive savings over a McMansion in the suburbs.”

Why Everyone is Leaving YouTube
Here is a great compilation of comments by some well-known YouTube content creators: Why Everyone’s Leaving YouTube.
If you are fed up with YouTube censorship, then I recommend getting the LBRY app. Once you are part of LBRY, I recommend that you start out by watching the 28-minute video, from Tim Pool: We Just Took A Dramatic Turn Toward Political Collapse, Could There Be A Second Civil War?
Oh, and just to test of LBRY’s upload functionality, I uploaded two videos. The first was the classic Saturday Night Live “More Cowbell” skit with Christopher Walken. To find it, with the LBRY app running, click on “Discover” and then type “More Cowbell” in the search box.

I also uploaded a German television news segment from GALILEO TV: Zu Besuch bei den Preppern in Idaho. (“Visiting the Preppers in Idaho”.) It mentions the American Redoubt several times. Note that it has German narration and overdubbing. This news segment features interviews with Idaho real estate agent Chris Walsh and entrepreneur John Adrain — the inventor of the Bed Bunker gun vault. To find it, with the LBRY app running, click on “Discover” and then type “Idaho Preppers” in the search box.

3,871 Yard World Record Sniper Kill
By way of Whatfinger.com (my favorite news aggregation page), comes a re-post of an article first posted in 2017: Dead at 3,871 Yards (Over 2 Miles Away): The World Record Sniper Kill. A pericope:
“In mid-2017, the sniping community was rocked by incredible news: a Canadian sniper team operating in the Middle East had made a successful kill at a distance of more than two miles. The team, deployed to fight the Islamic State, killed an ISIS fighter at a distance of 3,871 yards. The shot was a record breaker and more than a thousand yards farther than the previous world record. The shot, which bordered on the impossible, was made only slightly less so by the skill of the snipers involved.
On June 22, 2017 the Globe and Mail reported that two snipers assigned to Joint Task Force 2, Canada’s elite special forces unit, had shot an Islamic State fighter in Iraq at a distance of 3,540 meters, or 3,871 yards. The sniper team was stationed on top of a highrise building when it took the shot, which took almost ten seconds to reach its target. The sniper and his spotter had used a McMillan TAC-50 .50 heavy caliber sniper rifle. According to the Globe and Mail, the kill was verified by video “and other data.””
