eating out of desperation I think.
just incase I get bored, what with no t.v or internet!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

What can I say. The fact you are expecting boredom during the apocalypse is unusual, more realistic than a history channel documentary on the topic, but your boredom might be a creation of your own devise.

Your smokes might also become stale in the meanwhile and by 2033 I doubt Big Tobacco is still in business. Are you ready for the "No Smoking" signs during the apocalypse.

there will be no "no smoking signs" in my bunker.
i will have lots of books to keep myself occupied too.
As for keeping yourself occupied, its difficult to say yet, we do not know if we will bunkered for years or able to stroll around like theres no tomorrow.
Best be prepared for any outcome.


that reminds me:
Note to self:
pack boots.

Get overdraft and then get 180 bottles of fine wine...screw top preferably.

Does anyone know why the end of the world has been pushed back to 11/22/33 and if not the end of the world then what will happen that day?

Because that is when the doomsday soothsayers that were born in 2012 will be 21. (If I did my math correctly, but if I didn't just pretend I did, otherwise, this post wouldn't be as lightheartedly funny).

Whenever a doomsday soothsayer turns out to be wrong, I actually feel relived. As in, 'I am so glad I didn't get that wholesaler's (sam's club/cosco) membership card.'

I wonder how the businesses that have mostly doomsday preppers as customers feel when a soothsayers prediction turns out to be hokum.

Something to think about I suppose.

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

lol @ the 21 joke, very much end of the world.

I am relieved too.

This is an interesting perspective regarding buying in bulk and wholesale clubs. I would like to see data regarding if their sales spike during predicted doomsday events.

Of course buying in bulk is a recent phenomena due to our dependence on vehicles as a society. Before and hope soon again most people will shop daily for staples and that night's dinner from a store that is walking distance.

And as well in a world with less oil and cars there might be less doomsday predictions. If there is imagine the doomsdayers walking back and forth to the store to stock up, how many trips would it take, and how healthy will they be after their marathon strolling.

Thanks for being able to make fun of the situation but not having to make fun of the people who believe in the end of the world themselves. I find those who do are not very cheerful people to talk to.

Your reply has sparked my mental thinking.

I wonder how many doomsday preppers are in the UK. Where would they stock all that bulk stuff? The houses in this country are much smaller compared to an average sized American home. (Source: I'm American, but live in England).

I live in a Victorian 3 bedroom mid-terrace with a cellar. Only so much stuff can be stocked in the cellar, or at least that is what my husband tells me, for I have -never- went down there.

Thank you for this delightful ponderment;) I agree we can make a funny out of the situation, but never let a doomsday soothsayer hear, because yes, that does tend to upset them.

'You are on my No list now.'

;)

Unless y'all can find it anywhere else online, I believe I made this up, it's just a little gag. No need to make a big deal about soothsayers being false or anything, I was poking fun at the numerology thing that many soothsayers do with their dating and the like.

I've got piles of dry noodles saved up for the post-apocalyptic world because I loves me some noodles.
