10 Items that will Equip You for the Unknown

Hollywood has entertained us, particularly in recent decades, with scenarios of a post-apocalyptic world. We’ve also been subjected to reality television shows that portray groups of people “preparing” for various plausible (and not so plausible), extreme situations.
