Well, when you're a cop and you come home one day and smell decomp in your apartment, and you're sniffing and sniffing trying not to gag, but trying to figure out where the fark it is coming from and finally, open the hall closet and realize it's coming from that sack, there. In the back. What the fark. Has she murdered someone and put them in a sack and stored them in the hall closet? And you tenderly open the sack and peer, retching inside and realize as the millions of cockroaches swarm out that once, this bag held perfectly lovely potatoes.
And you ask her what the fark ever possessed her to purchase fifty farking pounds of spuds and hide them in the closet and she says, "Oh, it's a Mormon thing"

"Mormon thing!?!? I married you because you were raised in the desert, and I figured having to drive 300 miles to get to a store you might, just might be frugal!!!"

"We hoard food in case......" she says.

The problem with most preppers is that they aren't preppers for rational reasons. My MIL is convinced the world economy is going to collapse by summer because of some crap she read online (latest reason is petrodollars or some other nonsense). Therefore, they have supplies stocked and gold for when things "go to hell".

Now, the stuff they have stockpiled is actually not bad seeing that we live in Southern CA. Plenty of food and water to sustain a family until things get back online after a big earthquake is a good thing.

People in areas that are prone to natural disasters or extreme weather should have supplies on hand.

But man, the reasons preppers come up with to prep for are off the wall.

Richard C Stanford: abhorrent1: I saw the episode with this guy in it. He wasn't actually prepping cause he said he was going to be a raider and go take everyone else stuff. He was actually making "body armor" out of ceramic bathroom tiles stuck together with roofing tar. It was a sight to be seen. He's an incredibly annoying and stupid  douche bag.

You know, if the apocalypse did happen I'm pretty sure a lot of the crazy doomsday prepper types would be the first to go, for one reason: a lot of them are stupid and ati-social. Their plan is to run to their remote fort when things go bad, with no one around for miles. And then they fall down a ravine while gathering firewood, break their leg, and die because they're not a doctor. Now, the smart, not crazy preppers would realize that in order to thrive in a disaster they need to get other people, they need to form a community to watch each other's backs. The idiot in the article plans on running through the streets raiding other people's stuff, but hasn't considered that other people might be armed and might not take too kindly to looters.


My plan would be the most likable and least-killable guy around because I would just grow these:

I figure the only guy with the best way of forgetting that you're in a post-apocalyptic wasteland is safe. Also, since all these cowboys are going to be shooting each other full of holes, the winners are going to need painkillers. Poppies grow literally like weeds and one just needs to pass a combine over the field once or twice. I see the post-apocalyptic future and it appears mellow.

What sort of plans and stores do you have? Because everyone would want to get somewhere safe in event of a disaster, that doesn't make one a prepper. To be a prepper you gotta have detailed plans, large amounts of materials, resources and food stowed away, weapons maybe, and a bunker of some type.


I disagree. Stores yes we have plenty of stores. Detailed plans yes but a bunker? Not a chance if that thing goes the plan is to stay mobile.

When they were testing it, we were really hoping he'd end up in the emergency room, but sadly that didn't happen.

The first time I saw this show I asked what it was. "Paranoid Teabaggers" was the response I got.

I'd LIKE to have the money for a bunker...  Because - hey!  Cool!  Bunker!

But the above poster is right.  If things are bad enough to warrant a bunker - things are quite bad indeed.  And being in a bunker may not make the best sense.  However, for us, having a bunker would serve as a storm shelter as we don't have a basement.  And the crawlspace just won't cut it (though it could...)

And we sure do need to keep a larger store of "extras" at the house.  We weren't home for the blizzard that hit after the new year - thankfully - but we'd have been hard up for water.  Granted, we'd keep the bathtub full - but the drain stop doesn't hold 100%.  We do have a natural gas fireplace insert that'll throw some heat and we could use the grill grates to fashion a cooking surface.  We could manage with the food we have on hand - but barely.

No money right now for a generator...   Would love to have even a small one to keep the fridge and the chest freezer running at least.  Having the money, though, a nice 22Kw tri-fuel generator would be pretty nice.  However - our power rarely goes out during even the worst of storms (including blizzard...) that one that big would be quite the luxury item.

Long and short - need to lay in some water storage and a bit more easily prepared foodstuffs.

I'm not a prepper; yes, I have a few guns, with ammo; yes, I have enough food and water for two weeks and, yes, I have camping gear and the experience to use it (I'm an Eagle Scout). But, if the shiat really did hit the fan; not much of that would matter.

I just don't see the point; if it was an asteroid or volcano or other natural disaster; it's a choice between a quick death and starving.

You could get a bunker and enough resources to survive years; but, you'd have to come up eventually, then you'd be screwed.

A financial collapse or something similar would be much more survivable; but, what kind of life would you have?


Reminds me of "The Road".


Yes, I didn't read the book; but, I saw the movie. That's probably a pretty accurate picture of what would happen in a massive global catastrophe. You'd be fine if you could stay underground a few centuries; but, that takes a lot more than freeze-dried food and a 40' x 40' bunker. Eventually, you'd have to come up.

Meh, even if you survive the initial eruption it totally farks the U.S. food production capabilities causing a global food shortage of the likes we have never seen. Get a good bottle of scotch and take the easy way out.

I'm ok with this.  I'm not there yet, but I did buy 6 cases of Yuengling the other day because it was $14 a case.  I already have many gallons of homebrew so if civilization goes to shiat I'm going out shiatfaced.

What sort of plans and stores do you have? Because everyone would want to get somewhere safe in event of a disaster, that doesn't make one a prepper. To be a prepper you gotta have detailed plans, large amounts of materials, resources and food stowed away, weapons maybe, and a bunker of some type.


I think a rational prepper prepares for disasters weighing both their potential devastation and their potential likelihood.  Yellowstone blowing would be highly devastating, but also highly unlikely to occur in any given year.  Financial hardships like losing your job or needing expensive medical treatment would be less devastating, but much more likely.  If you've sunk a bunch of your available money into a bunker, you're stupid and unprepared for a personal financial disaster; however, if you've saved that bunker money and maybe just stocked up on stuff you would use anyways, then you can use that bank of goods to help tide you through either a natural disaster or a personal one.

tll;dr: Bunker preppers are idiots who can't evaluate risk.

That's not what your mother said, Trebek!

I'm not a prepper; yes, I have a few guns, with ammo; yes, I have enough food and water for two weeks and, yes, I have camping gear and the experience to use it (I'm an Eagle Scout). But, if the shiat really did hit the fan; not much of that would matter.

I just don't see the point; if it was an asteroid or volcano or other natural disaster; it's a choice between a quick death and starving.

You could get a bunker and enough resources to survive years; but, you'd have to come up eventually, then you'd be screwed.

A financial collapse or something similar would be much more survivable; but, what kind of life would you have?

You know, if the apocalypse did happen I'm pretty sure a lot of the crazy doomsday prepper types would be the first to go, for one reason: a lot of them are stupid and ati-social. Their plan is to run to their remote fort when things go bad, with no one around for miles. And then they fall down a ravine while gathering firewood, break their leg, and die because they're not a doctor. Now, the smart, not crazy preppers would realize that in order to thrive in a disaster they need to get other people, they need to form a community to watch each other's backs. The idiot in the article plans on running through the streets raiding other people's stuff, but hasn't considered that other people might be armed and might not take too kindly to looters.

Anybody with a stove, 5 gallon bucket, thermometer, and reasonably stocked tool bag can make a still pretty quick. The two dangers are 1) blowing up and 2) going blind, but both of those are easily overcome with a little know how.

1) pressure release valve (tape over a hole)
2) toss first and last .5L when you're at brewing temp (but dump it back in your mash - there's still booze in that liter!)

All joking about it aside, that's not even close to being true.

So don't do anything? Seriously, nothing wrong with stockpiling a little food and water just in case. I bet the people in WV wish they had now.

Toss up between the guy who blew his own finger off in front of his kids due to poor firearm discipline, and the two morons who were shooting from an enclosed space, and one guy got his eardrum blown out, or almost did.  The guy started bawling on camera.  Not like, pain bawling, or cries of agony, but butthurt bawling, cause apparently his prepper buddy was just as moronic as him.

WINNAR!


I saw both of those.  The eardrum guy was especially funny because he had been talking about being independent and self reliant and all that good stuff, and how he was so super smart and prepared, and when he gets a relatively minor injury like that he completely breaks down.  I saw the camera crew calling medics and I laughed and laughed.  If you can't handle that, what else can't you handle?

Oh, and did you see the one where the guy makes a cinderblock "castle" with giant ground level windows?  And did I mention the walls were only one cinderblock thick?  And that he had zero clue what to do when the electrical system went out because rain got in?

What sort of plans and stores do you have? Because everyone would want to get somewhere safe in event of a disaster, that doesn't make one a prepper. To be a prepper you gotta have detailed plans, large amounts of materials, resources and food stowed away, weapons maybe, and a bunker of some type.
