The Consumerist reports on a business giving away guns if you buy a solar power system.
It really isn't as weird as it sounds. I'm afraid that solar power still only makes sense in most of the country as a method of getting off-grid. For survivalists, and those who think there is a real danger of complete social collapse, these work together real well.
I confess: the complete social collapse theory is looking more plausible today than it has in a very long time. Unfortunately, our soil here isn't well suited to growing food, and I'm afraid social collapse would likely turn my wife and I vegetarian. I'm not sure how long either of us would eat meat if we had to kill and slaughter Bambi's mother on a regular basis.
