  1. So apparently it's illegal to buy military MREs in the States, what I guess the military calls K-rations? Does anyone know anything about the civilian versions?

          1. @dokidoki This I noticed and saw the DOD insignia on them, which is what made me confused.

        2. @awl I think the thing is they're supposed to be illegal to sell because they're gov't property, but surplus gets around that?

          1. @scribus See now that makes sense. I only want one or two for a hiking trip I'm taking, just to see what nutritional value they bring.

          2. @scribus @awl The making of MREs is contracted out so the only ones that are govt. property are ones that the DOD buys. Kinda like how you can buy cans and compasses straight from the manufacturer.

            1. @dokidoki That makes sense, too.

      2. @dokidoki @awl That makes a bit more sense, you can't exactly topple a government with MREs

        1. @nerthos @awl Wait, were you the one that thought that sale of MREs to civvies was outlawed?

    3. @awl Oh, and K-rations sundry from MREs. Outdated by about 40-50 years.
