I have an aluminized coat behind my office door. In the event of a nuclear blast a few hundred yards away, that would help my torso to remain undamaged for a few crucial microseconds.

I have three go bags for various situations, but I've learned to not put in any sort of medicine. Every package of sulfa powder I've looked at carries a 'use by' date. Even iodine can be a problem -- the iodine itself is stable (unless exposed to air), but glass ampules can crack (ruining every bit of fabric the liquid touches) and plastic bottles aren't usually rated for long term exposure (five+ years) to chemicals.

Kinda cool, actually. It’ll protect you against everything… except a nuclear blast.
