Preorder Item
«©NCSX» Way back in 1998, NCS bought into the whole Y2K disaster scenario and made plans for a post-apocalyptic planet. We explored buying a ranch somewhere in Colorado, stocked up on MREs (Meal Ready to Eat), and obtained firearms. We even explored buying a Honda and loading it up with silver but then Y2K passed with nary a whimper...

   The ranch purchase fell through and we got rid of the firearms but we still have boxes upon boxes of MREs. Each packet contains 8 oz of food made of ingredients such as soy protein, glyceryl monostearate, dehydrated onions, textured vegetable protein, and modified food starch. That's good eatin' to be sure. Each entree is packaged in a thin cardboard box which is labeled with the name of the entree inside. We have stacks of Chicken Tetrazzini, Chili and Macaroni, Beef Enchilada in Sauce, and many more. We'll never voluntarily sit down to an MRE dinner but we'll keep them around to remind us of the folly of buying into doomsday projections.

   We had a Y2K flashback when manufacturer E-Revolution's preorder offer for Japanese MREs arrived a couple of days ago. Three types of food are available as follows:

» Chicken and Rice / Everyone knows how good chicken and rice from a can tastes so why not stock up before they're all gone?
» Maguro / Translation: Tuna Fish. Advice: Buy Chicken of the Sea for $0.60 per can at the local bodega instead of the US$6.00 that NCS is charging. 
» Shrimp Pilaf / A meal of rice, shrimp, and chicken broth that'll leave you hankering for some real food.

   We like how there's a tank and a jetfighter on the label of each can to promote the MRE theme. We would have added a battleship on the Maguro label to let people know that tuna hails from the ocean. A little plastic fork is included with each MRE so you can dig right in.

   Please note the expiration date of each can is May 2011 so you'll want to eat them before that date. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2008 at US$6.00 per can.
