I will just start by saying that I love me some good doom porn. Most of the time the more creditably the impending doom has, the more I enjoy it. For me I would say that the doom helps me cope with the atrocious injustices in the world that I see everyday in the news. I think about a huge asteroid or any other number of cataclysmic or sociological disasters that could arise. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside thinking about the banksters and the politicians and all the other movers and shakers having to deal with it the same way us surf's would, fear and panic and suffering and for me that makes it worth it.

Sometimes, just sometimes, when the doom porn on ATS is having a slow day and doesn't fulfill my needs I do something that I am not proud of. I look around to make sure I am alone. I close the blinds and put my computer in incognito mode. Then I cut the proverbial tether and start going to some of the real crazy sites. First I hit something like info-wars just to get warmed up and then before you know it I am wading through the murky waters of beforeitsnews. Yeah I know it's all moronic and it has no supporting evidence but I just pretend for a second and when I am done metaphorically bating it I do feel a little ashamed.

So this I say to all the ATS doom porn naysayers: We all have that voice of logic in the back of our head(well most of us), we know that the chances are slim to none, we know its outlandish and stupid and naive. We can all come to the conclusion that it will probably not happen, so don' just crash through the wall like the kool-aid man and ruin our fun, thinking your doing a great service, because its enjoyable entertainment, that's it, just for kicks.

Wow, this just turned into a rant, when it was just going to be general chit-chat. Lemme just make that adjustment.

Umm, Well I guess rant over?

Oh, c'mon! Who doesn't love Before It's News? It's filled the void left by the Bat Boy tabloid that used to at the supermarket checkout. Weekly World News? I think that was it.

The problem with BIN is that it constantly recycles the same stuff. How many times can the Super Bowl get blown up?

The craziness of catastrophe prediction has 100% been proven a big case of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" to date. One time, there will be a 100% accurate prediction made...perhaps?

I know what you mean. It gets the imagination and adrenalin going being seduced by tales of military mass subjugation, asteroids and plagues. All the fun of the fair. I'm gone all numb these days. Can't seem to get the terrors about much.

Thats why the doom porn industry, it puts us off their trail…

they worry about their money. They suffer and fear they will lose that.

I'm all for a tar and feathering, wood stocks and rotten tomatoes, running them out of town on a rail?

Hey, I like to pretend from time to time too, but that doesn't mean that I am going to let myself start believing that crap though.

I love a good bit of doom porn, to me it's like a soap opera, you need the thrill of it all but deep down you know it's not real.

Sometimes I get really dissapointed when a good juicy bit comes along and then some rational thinking sensible type comes along and spoils it


It's the same with Mars anomolies.

Is it an Iphone on mars? No but can't we just pretend for a while until something else better comes along.

Some people are just party poopers.

You mean like trying to watch a good illusionist bit with my husband? He sits there and ruins it all by constantly trying to figure out how they're doing it.

It's like, "I know it's all a trick, but, please dear, let me enjoy the performance for what it is. Can we just not try to analyze it right now?"

Dude, just watch any of the later Mad Max movies, Water World, The Postman, Escape from LA, or any of the other doom movies. You'll get a good fix.

I'm still of a mind that at some point in my lifetime, our current way of life is going to come to a crashing halt.

Economic collapse seems the most likely, with the zombie apocalypse being the least likely, hehe...

But sooner or later, I just feel this house of cards we call the international economy, is doomed to fall. And when it does, things are going to change drastically.

Unlike many preppers, I don't WANT this to happen. I hope I never have to rely on preps...but it gives me a good sense of security to know that if it did, we'd likely trudge through OK, even still having many of our modern conveniences.

They need to have a paradolia emoji on ATS, maybe even a category. It would save them time. Although I would not know what it would look like?

Yes but I am that person with a magician.

Also never watch a movie with me, I will figure it out within the first five minutes and tell everybody who killed them and how.

Then I sit there wondering why everyone is glaring at me.

a reply to: bananashooter I'll start with infowars, go to drudge (which is an odd one for me), a little BIN and then go to Youtube and listen to someone talk about the annunaki and end up reading anout hollow earth theory. I wait until my housemate goes to work.

Water World!

Blasphemy!

One of the worst movies ..... ever.


But a cool low budget film from a few years ago: Right at Your Door

en.wikipedia.org...

Much better than waterworld... LOL

I don't know anyone who wants these things to happen except maybe unemployed tweenies with fantasies of Mad Max. But yes, having a crap ton of food and other supplies is not a bad idea.

I think it's likely, too. No empire lasts forever. It might even be engineered or they'll do something that will backfire. Then there's a chance of a virus getting out of a lab like in The Stand. As for a zombie apocalypse, maybe a strain of mad cow disease like in Zombieland (not technically zombies but oh well), or rabies. Something virulent. Then there are always nuke plants melting down, earthquakes, Yellowstone going kablooey, or an asteroid.
