You Might Be A Prepper If....

Probably old but I found it funny:

You go to Mc Donalds and ask for one order of fries with 25 packs of 
ketchup and mustard.
You know which bugs are edible.
The people in line at Costco ask if you run a store or restaurant.
You start panicking when you are down to 50 rolls of toilet paper.
The best radio in the house is a wind-up.
You were excited beyond all reason when they came out with cheddar cheese in a can.
You save dryer lint to make fire starters.
You have emergency rations for your pets, and view your pets as potential 
emergency rations.
Your paper boy throws the paper into the barbed wire surrounding the perimeter 
of your house just for the heck of it.
You stock up on kerosene and firewood in 102 degree summer heat.
You have a cookbook all about Spam.
Your shopping list includes numbered items like .22, .308., .357 and 7.62
You’ve ever bought antibiotics for human use through a vet or grains for 
human consumption through a feed store.
Your box springs are Rubber Maid containers filled with rice and beans.
You went to a dinner party where MREs were served.
You’ve ever considered buying an above-ground pool for water storage purposes.
You have set aside space for your live chickens in the fallout shelter.
You use your Gerber Tool to cut your steak at a fine dining establishment.
Your 'To Do list' includes changing the batteries on the seismic ground sensors 
surrounding your home
You dog has a bug out bag.
You ask Santa for canning jar lids
Interviewing you is a requirement for the local Scout troop for earning the 
'Pioneering' merit badge.
You know how to cook leather.
You have 6 dozen diapers in your closet and you don't have any children living 
at home.
You open your closet and are hit by bags of beans and bags of rice falling off 
the shelf.
You can cook better with your wood cookstove than you can with your 
conventional range.
Your neighbors call you instead of 911.
Your 12 year old daughter instructs a 53 year old lawyer on how to properly use
 his AR-15.
You know what a Faraday Cage is.
Your favorite car trip game is "When I bug out, I'm going to take with me....."
You always keep a new set of shoelaces handy in case you have to tie off an 
umbilical cord in an emergency.
You are more concerned about shelf life of food than sale price.
Most of you food purchases come in 5 gallon buckets.

I not only know what a Faraday Cage is...
