Wikipedia shows factual information, not practical information. Like the article for a splint. It says what a splint is, it says why splints are used. It lists off a bunch of different types of splints. It does not say how to make a splint. Therefore it's damn useless when you need to make a certain type of splint

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splint_(medicine)

With belladonna it explains that it's toxic. It also explains that it has been used as a pain Reliever for centuries. It does not explain in simple terms how to make belladonna not kill you so it can be used as a pain reliever

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atropa_belladonna

Knowing facts are useless if it doesn't have a practical use.

It tells you what the thing is, it doesn't tell you how to use the thing to help yourself.

You're better off downloading some super in depth survival guide, because it'll have practical information displayed in a way that is designed to make your chances of survival as good as possible.

A good, reliable oil lamp. As long as I have controlled fire, it shouldn't take too long to get back-up-and-running— to a nice, rustic, dark-ages level of comfort. Sans religious wars and knowing how to cultivate penicillin; so, you know, not as bad.

Raise chickens. You can use the eggs to incubate vaccines.

Assuming you mean an apocalypse where all technology is gone/destroyed I'd say a flat head axe, it's a useful tool/weapon and you can make one fairly easily out of sticks and stones. If the world hasn't entirely been destroyed and gone to shit then a rifle is the tool I'd choose, security will be a big issue when people realize there's no more food being trucked into town and the water doesn't flow out of the tap without power. The first few months will probably be the hardest to survive, and there'll be massive starvation during the first year, not to mention all the medical issues and winter related deaths. A rifle could help me assure I keep what is mine, hunt when I need to and obtain what I need ofr me and mine when I must.

A fully equipped hydroponic grow-op. It's believed that civilization first began based on growing crops, where towns could surround them and thrive. I would grow tomatoes, lemons, potatos, and all that other shit. And a whollllleeeeee lot of weed. And society would begin. A gun would probably be helpful too if my cult followers will be loyal.

A hydroponic system can be hand powered. Once or twice a day run a hand crack for ten minutes and you're good to go.

No nutrients for it. Aquaponics would be much better, as you get fish as well.
