2011 has been a hard year. Global Revolution! Natural disasters! Bankruptcy! What's next? We're not hedging bets for 2012 just yet, but in case things don't turn out the way you'd expected, we've got you covered. Core77's Ultimate Gift Guide has everything you need to get through these hard times and survive through the... end times?
Today's pick is from Dave Seliger, one of Core77's esteemed cloggers who is currently completing his degree in Engineering and Studio Art at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.
When cellphone systems go down in a disaster, the United States Government Emergency Telecommunications System (GETS) phone lines are still up and running. Although there is a strict eligibility requirement for being able to use GETS, it will definitely come in more handy than most of what's currently in your wallet.
In other words, when the going gets tough, the tough get GETS.
