I have a friend who lives about 12 miles from a college town. The area is heaven. Lots of state owned land. Abundant fish and game including timber wolves and black bears.
My friend shared that some of his casual acquaintances from the college town shared that when things got "tough" they were going to move into his area and proceed to "live off the land".
Knowing how difficult that is, he has started to fortify his property. One of his methods involves no-bake cookies.
Before making the cookies, however, he visits the local thrift store (Goodwill) and buys up their supply of ear-buds, Apple branded smartphone cases and old blue-jeans. He also swings by the one store that caters to African-Americans and buys rainbow hair extensions.
He cuts up the ear-buds and hair extensions and adds them to the no-bake cookie recipe. The recipe is modified to reduce the amount of sugar, cocoa and oatmeal and substitutes cornmeal and a bit of paraffin wax to increase the weather resistance.
He and his wife roll out the no-bake cookies into "snakes" that are as thick as shovel handles....say between 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" in diameter.
After they cool-and-harden, he deposits piles of them where casual by-passers cannot miss them.
