One more reason to insulate oneself from global supply chains in any way possible.

Modern cars are highly interconnected, meaning that if one function fails, the entire vehicle may not start. To avoid this issue, some individuals may prefer to drive a 1970s car with commonly replaced spare parts.

Interestingly, despite the shortage of many other items, milk is abundant and therefore priced lower locally.

I thought the hot sauce shortage was a supply issue for my local store. It turns out there is a much bigger problem. The drought in Mexico is affecting hot pepper production --

Is a world without hot sauce a world we want to survive in?

While preparing, I realized that I had forgotten to add hot sauce. It's important to make sure that we remember all the necessities while prepping.

The answer to the problem might be to DIY. I have a pending harvest of 4 jalapenos. Maybe I should turn them into hot sauce instead of just cutting them up and use them for a dish.
I also have some seeds left. Potted chili plants are fairly easy to keep.

There could be a scarcity of macaroni and cheese, chocolate chip cookies, milk, and cereal. Yet, I've been storing dry milk as a precaution.

I visited Dairy Queen today, but unfortunately, they had run out of taco meat. So, I decided to order a burger instead.

I'm still waiting for Huy Fong to find a supplier for chili pepper so I can get my sambal oelek hot sauce.

Hot sauce shortage continues. Scalpers abound. I feel like we need to declare a national emergency. Is a world without rooster sauce one we want to live in?

With all respect, I'm not sure dripping irony increases the quality of the conversation here.

There are genuine supply chain issues that affect us all, or remind us of how vulnerable we are to disruptions that actually matter.

Neither taco meat or the hot-sauce-of-the-week qualify.

Do we want to build this forum or let it die? Our words will decide that. If nothing else, it is a repository of solid information. Unless the founder of this "supply chain" decides it's time to pull the plug.
