Last week I talked to 2 people I know about preparation for an emergancy. They both told me they have been preparing for the end of the world coming in December 2012, how much they've spent and the amount of time and effort was almost unbelievable. Now don't get me wrong I do believe in being prepared for the things I could due something about, but what part of END OF THE WORLD don't somepeople understand? Does this view make me less of a survivalist?



When you hear the sound of an Apache helicopter coming after you, you could run but you'll only die tired.

A friend is making a custom knife for me.

I told him he must complete it before the end of the world (since I already paid for it).

He would normally finish a knife much more quickly but this one is special.

That is the extent of my 2012 end of the world preparation.

It could be they see your atrocious spelling as the 3rd sign of the apocalypse. ;)

However, what they are probably shortening is "The End Of The World As We Know It" (TEOTWAKI) which doesn't mean they believe it is the END, but the end of certain things (gov't, creature comforts, civilization, pick your SHTF scenario).

I do agree with TEOTWAKI, but one was talking of the planets aligning and the earth being pulled into a closer orbit to the sun. Now I live I Palm Springs area, this is a place you can tell the start of summer when you see the devil at the airport with his bags heading out of town.

People should plan harder for it not being the end of the world and actually living life instead of worrying themselves and preparing beyond any rational likely concern.

............but one was talking of the planets aligning and the earth being pulled into a closer orbit to the sun. .

:facepalm:

Where do they get such rubbish and why do they buy into it so easily?

I'll never quite get it other then maybe some emotional need to need something to prepare for all the time? to feel less of a sheep perhaps? sense of satisfaction that they know the "truth"?

Some people just need something to occupy there time with. Its like an old man being overly-concerned with his lawn.

This is very serious and everyone should be planning for the end of the world!!!

To help, I am selling a book on how to prepare for the end of the world. It is a "Must Have" as anyone preparing knows that this has never happened before and so they won't have a clue how to prepare. My book is the ONLY book that is written by someone who knows EXACTLY what to do to prepare.

And if you order today, I will pay the sales tax and shipping.

That is not all!!! For the first 50 callers, I will include a FREE copy of "What to do After the End of the World." This free book is yours to keep even if the world does not end.

Call Toll free now!! 1-800-Kiss-ur-butt-goodbye
That Toll free number again is: 1-800-Kiss-ur-butt-goodbye

Operators are standing by!

My brother is always saying stuff like this. Very annoying, and it scares my GF, not because she believes what he is saying but because she thinks he is NUTS. lol. He is not a gun, survival, or even camping enthusiast. :willy_nilly:

I hope he stays NUTS....

OK I don't understand prepping for the "End of the World"? I mean if all the planets are aligning and were all going to be sucked into a big black void, why prepare? That scenario pretty much means were all going to die and hell why prep for it? Go to a casino and play the max bet on every single machine in the place, or give all your money to some homeless dude. Have a huge party or buy that dream sports car!

Now if were talking about being prepared for disasters, SHTF, TEOTWAWKI, or zombies, then by all means I'm right there with ya. But if I knew the world was ending for sure, I would be racking up the credit cards, selling my house for a $1, and live in a teepee for the end of days in some remote area where it was beautiful!

If the mayans actually foretold the end of the world, I seriously doubt canned goods and water bottles are going to make much of a difference.

Hey NASA has said that the sun will enter a phase of high solar flare activity next year. Maybe they are preparing for an EMP SHTF-type scenario.

No EMP, but it does tend to get posters to repeat themselves.

I beleive anything can happen. Even if nothing happens Dec. 21 2012, people will still happen. I beleive there will be riots and looting and things of that nature weeks before Dec. 21. Some people are just plain STUPID.

Ya know, I sincerely believe that being prepared for a SHTF situation (big EQ etc) is very realistic but if the world is truly ending we're all screwed!

I don't know about Dec 2012. But I do know I've seen a bunch of interesting things & been around a bunch of interesting people in my life. Most notably a man who was cured of cancer (with before and after chest x-rays to prove) in an instant and who, in later years lived with stage 4 lung cancer for years, not months. The underlying gift/ torture was the ability to see things...sometimes things he did not want to see.

I'm not saying stuff is coming in Dec 2012. I don't believe it is. But something is coming down the line...something big....& sooner (years) than later (decades).
And it will find us. Better to be prepped than not.

If the mayans actually foretold the end of the world, I seriously doubt canned goods and water bottles are going to make much of a difference.I have a really hard time believing the Mayan end-of-world prophecy because if they were capable of accurately predicting THAT, they should've also seen their OWN annhilation coming, and taken steps to prevent that... They could've easily kicked the spaniards back into the ocean.

And we'd be dealing with Mayan illegal immigrants today instead of Mexican ones. :)

No offense, but I think you've been playing too much Half-life.

Besides, if there's one aircraft that is likely to do surgical strikes against civilians, it's bound to be armed UAV's. Yeah I know, cool story, brah.

Those who stockpile food, water, ammunition, and weapons should also stock medical supplies, fuel, and practical items such as tools, long extension cords, candles/flashlights, batteries, matches, water filtration devices, etc.

How do you plan for the end of the world ? Drink, eat, and spend all your money ? It's PARTY TIME !
For all interested, the "Family Radio" guy Harold Camping doubled down. The SHTF big time on Oct. 21 this year. For real this time, according to Harold. I am bummed, this will limit lobster season to 3 weeks.

What are you referring to specifically? FEMA camps? NWO? Solar flares? Earthquake?
