I have just had delivered a US army emergency ration pack. I bought this pack because of its pictograms on the packet describing how to cook the meals inside. What i really like about the pictographs is how descriptive they are and how few words are used to describe the process. It has got me thinking about how information is decrypted and that maybe a visual language would be better in a post disaster world.

MRE Meals were adopted as the Department of Defense military ration packs. MRE survival food is a complete totally self-contained meal package. The packaging is designed to withstand exposure to any weather conditions. Inside each case are twelve ration packs that include main entries as well as a variety of other foods, and beverages.
