I don't know - I've been making predictions about whether the world is going to end for ages, and so far I've been right 100% of the time.

RedTank: Why would anyone want to survive the end of the world? I don't want to live the rest of my life watching my loved ones die and/or struggle to survive. I also don't want to isolate myself from humanity in some bunker/prison/concrete coffin. I don't understand the why people obsess over the end and welcome it. Preppers and predictors all seems hell-bent on trying to be "right" and all fantasize over the delusional power they think they will acquire after "the end" in being able to say, "I told you so."


It makes up for their perceived lack of power in this life.

Maybe if they make these assclowns responsible for the damage they cause it would stop a lot of this crap.

hasty ambush: SlothB77: all it takes is for one to be right, though

That was the contention of a guy I know at work. He preps for them all . He bought 4 generators preparing for the Y2K disaster. I got one real cheap off of him when that one fell through-use if for my hunting cabin.

Don't believe in the end of world stuff but believe in being prepared for natural disasters and financial ones like loss of job. So I have things slike 45 days of non-perishable food and hygiene items along an emergency fund in cash stored.Also fortunate that I have only myself to care for.


So after the war, when the cities are dust and fallout is everywhere, instead of being put out of your misery you have the joy of suffering through it for at least 45 days.

meat0918: It makes up for their perceived lack of power in this life.


That is very true. They feel they have no control in this life so they have nothing to latch onto except for the end which is like being so afraid of dying that you never leave your home.

List fails without any mention of all the climate catastrophes that were supposed to have happened. WHAR are the millions of "climate refugees?"

I`m surprised this has not descended into an AGW thread yet. That`s the latest `O Noes! Teh world is ENDING!` thing that IMO will probably turn out to be a damp squib.

So somebody having a heart attack, or involved in a car wreck, or underneath a falling limb dies on Friday. What then? It's still real to them, dammit.

Does ANYONE really think the world is ending Fri?

I have had a vision! I predict that on Friday, December 21, 2012, the sun will rise in the morning and set in the evening. My calculations are exact and cannot be wrong. You have been forewarned! Chaos! Chaos!

and my husband will age a whole year in 1 day!

Meh. This is why I don't join the Church of AGW, or Atheism, or any religion.

I do gravitate towards the people though.

I made a whole bunch of money during the Y2K issuse. After turning down a couple of bids for updating systems, I had to start taking them seriously.

There were two types of people that hired me, the nut that thought the world was going to collaspe, and the people that worked for them. I just let it be known that I had holistic system to save them.

Fix your computers, harden your business, and home security, and even provide training to your employees. After all, who is going to run your business after the world collapses?

I am one of the guys that sold DDF, a shelf stable, ready to eat food. Just a cup per ten pounds of body weight a day was all you needed, and water, you'd need lots of water.

Well, it was dry dog food packaged in 5 gallon buckets, the buckets could be used as toilets when the were emptied of food. But DDF is nutritous, and it would make your hair shiny.

The few employees I had were family, and they knew enough, barely, to keep their mouths shut, if they wanted the paychecks to keep coming in.

Good times, good times. I'm staying out of this one, the people are just too cheap now a days.

Someday one of them will be right and we'll never hear the end of it.

As I stated I not preping for a doomsday but natural disaster like a hurricane. SInce I do not live in the Northeast or Louisiana 45 days should be enough time to get basic services restored.

Yeah, but we won't care so long as they didn't die from a direct space object strike, the resulting ejecta rain, or the superheated wind.

My favorite 'doomsday' prediction - more of a curse really - involves the desecration of 'Tamerlane' / Timur's Tomb in Samarkand.

(quick & dirty copy/paste from the wiki):

'Timur's body was exhumed from his tomb in 1941 by the Soviet anthropologist Mikhail M. Gerasimov.'
...

'It is alleged that Timur's tomb was inscribed with the words, "When I rise from the dead, the world shall tremble." It is also said that when Gerasimov exhumed the body, an additional inscription inside the casket was found reading, "Who ever opens my tomb, shall unleash an invader more terrible than I."[88] In any case, two days after Gerasimov had begun the exhumation, Nazi Germany launched Operation Barbarossa, its invasion of the U.S.S.R.[89] Timur was re-buried with full Islamic ritual in November 1942 just before the Soviet victory at the Battle of Stalingrad.[90]'

/doh!
