We've joked about the impending nuclear apocalypse for years (because let's face it, it's pretty damn funny), but at the rate things have been going, we're starting to wonder if we should stop laughing and start sounding alarms. Right now it's still hard to say, but until WWIII hits, we're going to remain confident that our suggestion to build a bunker and stock it full of survivalist gear is merely precautionary rather than prophetic.
So check out this life-saving equipment, which every day seems increasingly necessary (gulp). And even if you're not preparing for the End of Days, at least the stuff is pretty awesome:
UltraBright 500-Lumen Tactical Military Flashlight Two-Pack
Who among us doesn't enjoy curling up with a political thriller before bedtime? We're willing to bet that a nuclear apocalypse won't stop Jonathan Franzen from pumping out a new novel each year, but unless you're willing to burn precious generator fuel, you're going to have to kiss them goodbye all the same. Or you can score two of these ultra-bright LED flashlights and a freezer bag of backup AA's. Made from military-grade aluminum, this two-pack of tactical flashlights have a range of up to one mile. Get them here for $29.99.
