Is the pig or the shark more deadly?I’ve been following Bruce Schneier’s career since I reviewed the first edition of his Applied Cryptography book for the Agorist Quarterly in 1995.

Similarly, Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast explains why he talks less about foraging in the wilderness and more about stocking up food, water and tools. Most people are not going to be lost in the woods, but most will lose a job or have some local power outage or road failure due to extreme weather, fire, or earthquake.
