    I've been waiting for this movie for a while... isn't is a remake of 'The Omega Man' with Charlton Heston?

    I'm all about the SHTF stuff, but if its the end of the world... I guess there is really no point in preparing for it, cause I'm probably not going to be around to enjoy having the world to myself.

    Now, this is entertaining, but I must go perform my bi-hourly bug sweep of my house. I will return when I'm sure it's clear.

    Excellent point blackbear. I think I'm going to head out to the garage and fire up the welder and build me a Faraday cage.

    Don't really think about it, strongly doubt it will happen, difficult times, economic chaos, etc etc..its happened before..WWI --WWII-- Depression-- the sixties--etc Its all happened...nothing new under the stars...if SHTF..I'll just hunker down at home with alot of good books till it all passes and I get back to work! Besides most people don'thave time for teotwawkit , shtf, etc...We have car payments, lawns to mow, and soccer games for the kids!!!

    There was indeed. Still is, to a greater or lesser extent. There's quite a wide (if silent) community out there preparing for what appears to be the rapid degradation of society. I encourage everyone interested to read this thread about one man's experience during Hurricane Katrina.:

    It is a very long post, but I deem it essential reading for anyone who considers preparedness. Goes to show that you need more than 8,000 rounds of ammo and 3,000 gallons of water, especially for a short term SHTF.

    Also, for anyone that's interested in fiction, I highly reccomend reading "Lights Out" by halffast. It's rather long (longer than most books) but is one man's incredible insight into how society can degrade.

    Have you guys seen the show Jericho? Kind of interesting...far fetched but it did get me thinking about what I would do if SHTF.
    Pretty scarry how much we rely on modern day conveniences and what would happen if all of that changed.

    Is the date the Mayan calender ended on. That's a lot of fuss because the Mayans figured that 1,872,000 days was enough!

    Civilizations can collapse for lots of reasons. For example, Roman society collapsed because, since they had no value for "zero", they could not successfully terminate their C programs . . .

    You'll have to forgive me, but I'm not gonna put a lot of stock in what was predicted by a civilization that ended abruptly, itself, had no aviation, no microscopes, no telescopes, no electricity, etc. Oh, and did they not engage in human sacrifice like a lot of the other "cultures" down there? (Not sure.)

    Nope, not gonna get all superstitious and worry about that. But if it happens, hey, I ain't gonna cry. This world has been running down for some time, now, in my view...

    They didn't predict that the world would end, that is just the last day they had on their calender. You see they carved all 1,872,000 days in a stone calender and stopped on the Winter solistce in 2012 (12-21).

    I always thought they figured they could just start on a new stone when they got closer to 2012
