wow cool name uber circle (I'll pick god) elite kid,
Buy a man a fish and you feed him for a meal. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. I like that you are thinking and planning for the future. But what if all is good, evil is adverted, some skills learned now will translate into survival in good and bad times. Counting on others - or stashes of goods that can be stolen and/or confiscated may not be the best use of time or money. Learning how to distill water, grow food, save seeds, sprout--- just ideas.
