Real News. Real Funny.
fortheloveofgod: Since the Utah desert is probably the last place they'd target, isn't that exactly the place you would want to be if you were concerned about such a thing?
olddinosaur: The probability of a total collapse is unlikely, but prolonged financial hardship is almost a sure shot.Greece is out the tubes for $1.5 trillion, or $300,000 per working person---of which there are very few. Amerika is out the tubes for $16 trillion and change, and they are talking raising taxes on everyone who still has a job; have fun with that!The Dollar has already gone from $835 to $1730 in real money value over the last four years, and more deterioration is damn likely.Try $7 gasoline, $16 per six--pack Heineken and $8 Big Macs, and see what it would do to your budget, assuming you could keep a job paying the same rate; fat chance.Then figure out how much worse it would get if everyone who pays taxes went on strike.

Dinjiin: If there is a catastrophic disaster of some sort, just think for a second. What are the kind of people who are prepared to live through it? Mormons and other religious cults, fringe survivalists, eccentric rich folks, etc...Maybe it would be better to die off in the initial days than it would be to live on in Earth 2.0 with the remaining scavengers and the nutjobs.
Great Janitor: I was watching that show about Doomsday preppers and there was an episode about a prepper who had all kinds of stuff she was hoarding and refused guns because she honestly thought that come doomsday, or what ever big disaster, the best of humanity would come out and no one would try to use a gun to steal all of her stuff.
