Flush It Friday - 2013 (Part 1 of 2)

Yup, it's that time again. I've got a plunger and some Drano and I'm ready to get rid of the backlog that didn't make the cut this year. As found below, it's actually an amazing range of stories which speaks volumes about the disaster prepping, surveillance trending, social media connecting, geospatially evolving world we now live in.
