    USA Today has a piece on preppers today, too. The way things are going lately, it isn't a bad hobby.

    What a bunch of lunatics.

    If there is a Doomsday, their meager cans of pork and beans are going to eventually run out and they'll have to abandon their bomb shelter and battle roving gangs of cannibals to secure the world's last remaining resources ala The Road.

    Duh.

    Duh.
    also, I think I'd rather die in the doomsday event than share a small bomb shelter with a fat redneck who has nothing to eat but pork and beans from a can. I can't imagine a properly sealed bomb shelter has adequate ventilation for the resulting gastrointestinal distress.

    I took the quiz, and at the end they suggested I was low on firearms.

    One guy had a 35 years supply of non-perishable food enough to feed 14 people. And most of these guys are armed enough to fight off marauders.

    I'm going to become a gloomsday prepper. Like hedging a bet. I don't think a full blown catastrophe of epic proportions will ever happen, but I do fear some major disruptions. Which preparing a little can help alleviate.

    See, I would spend that money on stuff now, so that I can enjoy my life before the supposed Doomsday that will never arrive.

    Because it won't.

    There's a lot of people living in shelters in the NY/NJ area that used to agree with you.

    While I think being prepared is good spending the amounts of money that some of these people spend is insane.

    I said you need to strive to better than everyone else. I didn't say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That's what character is. It's in the try.

    Had a co-worker who went crazy the last half of 1999, thinking New Years Day 2000 would bring mass chaos. Shelter, dry food, firearms, gas mask...the works. ( BTW, he's a Morman ). Couldn't believe nothing happened and he laid out thousands on this crap...

    It seems like a hobby to many of them. I'm sure there are other money wasting hobbies out there.

    there are plenty, but I can't think of any others that are accompanied by paranoid delusions.

    i have friends that live in the ""boonies"" and they can everything, they have a huge stockpile of canned food(done themselves, not store bought). although i dont think it would last them more than 6mo's-year tops.
