    some of the stories heard during boozy evenings with my parents and my friends' parents.

    How there were no jobs for a couple of years, and they lived off the land, their gardens, some fishing and hunting. Or getting paid for work with a chicken or canned food.

    Maybe going out and partying with a single nickel to spend.

    Looking in my parents' pantry and seeing it chock full of bulk-bought foods, because by God, they were going to be ready for the next time.

    Leaving their parents' house because there was little to eat, and hitchiking, following rumors of work.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
