The Importance of Blending In: A Survival Topic

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Mortimer Adler Moose, May 21, 2015.

  1. Many of you may not have noticed, that I am in fact, a moose! Most folks just tend to focus on the 40mm grenade hole in my belly and just over-look the antlers. This is because I blend in so well with those around me. I am amazed at just how much those tacticool people stand out in their 511s and concealed carry vests, for example. They might as well open carry, as much as they are advertising to all the miscreants about, that they are armed. It sort of reminds me of that barking dog thing, you know the one where barking dogs don't bite? I know there are exceptions to this adage, but it is so enough to pen a quote.
    Again, I can find most folks AO just by the stuff they put on here and in social media like hoofbook.com and myplot.com. I read about all their goodies and toys and preps and armchair plans to survive the apocalypse and find myself thinking that they would make it ten steps through Excursion Inlet during moose season! I guess my point is to ask if people ever really consider how transparent their wealth is to those that might want take some of it? Or do you make any effort at blending into the background, so to speak...hiding in plain sight? Moose1. Moose2. Moose3.

    Moose, hate to break the news but you really don't blend in that well, it's just that most folks are reluctant to admit there is a moose in the room, although the pink banana suit really complimented your eyes...
