    Yeah, my understand was that the calendar was supposed to just reset, though evidently they predicted that there would be a "reset" of civilisation. This, of course, from a present-day Mayan astrologer, though, so take that for what it's worth. Either way, better to be prepared.

    It's pretty amazing reading the translated documents of what went on before, during, & right after the 1st millennium.
    Y1K <<~~~

    It was honestly not much different than Y2K concerning how people panicked. Of course there were no computers to crash or planes to fall from the sky back then but, people freed their slaves...sewed themselves up in sack-cloth covered themselves with ashes...donated all their worldly possessions to the church.

    It was all eerily similar.

    I guess it sort of depends on how it happens. If we are talking about societal breakdown then yeah, plans are good. If we are talking planet destroying cataclysmic meteor strike or something like that, I will have to deal with it day by day. Some scenarios I am prepared for, others preparation wouldn't make any difference.

    If the fit hits the shan, it is more likely to do so when we least expect it. Granted we can see a decline before it happens, but like the Depression, it happened almost overnight.

    We can prepare for a scenario like this, but it will bite us in the rear end when it happens because we are wrapped up in our normal daily lives.

    I'm not saying to not prepare, just be prepared to be surprised when it happens. I fear that we (generalization) don't realize just what it is going to take to make it for an extended period. When supplies that have been stockpiled begin to run out, then what?

    This is VERY true.

    Here's what the smart folks are saying are the top 10 ways the world will end suddenly.

    http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/167 (until I saw this I thought all of that stuff about pole shift was tinfoil hat stuff, but maybe not?)

    If any of them occur there would be no way to prepare, but i am more concerned about societal breakdown that could occur on a short or long term basis caused by economic failure, natural disaster, terrorism, etc.

    I also recommend the lights out book. Very interesting read. Makes you think about how reliant we are on the power grid and what might happen if it goes down for longer than a couple of weeks.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    Thanks for the link to TED. Interesting talk by Petranek, and lots of other stuff worth investigating.

    I just watched the Petranek/TED video...not impressed. Colonizing Mars? Looking for another Earth-like planet? I don't think so. When the time comes for the world to end, there won't be any getting out of it IMO.

    Well to me TEOTWAWKI is as simple as the hillery/paul ticket winning the next election LOL .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    This week our area flooded pretty bad the valley below us was all under water salmon swimming with the cattle. Some areas are still stranded without power or a road to get in or out. My back yard is hundreds of miles of pristine national forest. There is a reason all these coastal ndns were fat. All my neighbors have laid in stores of supplies. We have stores of ammo and arrows
