    Teotwawki

    the end of the world as we know it, incase you didn't figure it out. I was just reading a post and saw this abbrevation used, kudos if you made if up b/c i havn't seen it before. does anyone here acutally think about TEOTWAWKI? I'm interested to see if anyone else has a plan for this SHTF x100000 scenario? I know if the internet still worked i'd be linked up here or on ralleypoint and figuring where we can meet up and bunker down. Maybe i just have an over active immagination. Just a thought.

    December 21, 2012 to be exact QK. That is one of my sons birthday by the way. He is not too happy that the world is supposed to end on his birthday.

    I do think about it and I'm as prepared as I can be but I don't think you can ever be prepared for the end of the world.

    On this subject, has anyone else looked at the trailers for the movie "I am Legend" with Will Smith. It looks to be an End of the World as we know it type of story. Looks interesting.

    I am semi-prepared for possible unexpected emergency calamities.
    As to if it will be the final one (or not) I can't say.

    Concerning December 21, 2012 - I'm not giving all my worldly goods away on the 20th.

    Think about it every day.
    We're not alone, either:

    It's for real. Albeit, to most people, "zombie" is a metaphor for any SHTF, whether it be a hurricane, nuclear bomb, EM attack, etc. (Some take the "zombie" thing a little too seriously - though it's not something I rule out entirely) Check out the forums -it's quite the active community.

    I have a few times. I've read a few books on the subjects, too. Some rather fascinating. Lucifer's Hammer, for one.

    I dunno. I can hunt, fish, and I've got plenty of equipment to make it on my own through any season in the southwest. Though I'm pretty sure I don't have enough ammo. It'd be hell. But then again, I dig a challenge.

    On the 21/12/12 subject... I've heard that from a lot of different places. Like QK said, I won't be giving things away but you better believe I'll have a good amount of supplies.

    OK Time To Take This Thread To A Whole New Level

    HOW...do you think the Earth will end?

    Will humans be totally wiped out or just become mutant?

    Will the entire Planet be destroyed OR Just all Human life?

    What sub specie will then become dominate?

    Ants - CockRoaches - Scorpions - Earthworms

    or will everything just STOP?


    Ahhhh! It Has Laser Max Eyes!!! Somebody Help!

    I personally don't think that the world will end for a long time. When I refer to TEOTWAWKI, I usually think of the end of civilization as we know it. I don't necessarily think the human species will be wiped out, though through famine, pestilence, idiocy, and just the fact that the standard supply lines won't be there to take care of people will greatly reduce the population.

    As for what causes it....in our lifetime, I would say nuclear war, or oil shortages. Pretty much anything that causes us to lose power for an extended period of time will bring the world all to heck.

    Well, I have always said that we are only about 3 days away from total societal chaos if the food trucks stop rolling into the urban areas.

    I don't dwell on it, but some well-placed terrorist action(s), or an economical collapse...which I believe is possible (overnight)...could bring our society to its knees...
    And yes, we do have plans to be somewhat self-sufficient for short time period (a few months)...'close the door and stay inside' self-sufficient!

    Perhaps you all need to consider a thicker gauge tin foil hat.

    No matter how or when the world ends, I'm ready and don't worry about it.

    I've read 'the end' and am not too concerned at all. (REVELATION)

    Actually, a full tin foil body suit might be in order...
