Author's Note: How can a PVC pipe help you survive?
As I was in my underground bunker writing this article, I realized my experiences as a doomsday prepper would finally come in handy. No more waiting for armies of the undead. All joking aside (I really don't work inside a bunker), researching this article offered an array of fascinating DIY projects -- all involving PVC pipe. At this point, I'm fairly confident that if push came to shove, I could fashion a greenhouse, temporary shelter, soccer goal or irrigation system out of PVC pipes. And you never know when that's going to come in handy.
