Hey all.
This is a question that has been rattling around inside my head for a good while now.
We've all been told for what seems like forever, that TSHTF event is coming, and we all need to prepare. Some have gone to pretty extreme measures to 'prep' for this inevitable event.
There have been many possible outcomes for the end.
Nuclear war, disease, asteroid, global financial meltdown, zombies, etc..
I have always, since childhood, been a little obsessed with this idea. There were times leading up to the epic 2012 date, that some of you may remember, that really seemed like it was happening.
But, nothing. Everything goes on, like clockwork.
My question is, why? With all of the possible ends to our shiny happy existence, why is it, that none of them have happened?


Why are we still here??

99.9% of all life that has existed on planet earth is extinct.
We will eventually be in that group so just enjoy the time you get.

Just wondering *why* it hasn't happened yet?

Are we special, or lucky, or what?

Lucky would probably be the appropriate word.
The correct set of circumstances must take place.
Some would say devine intervention.
I'll stick with luck.

I think I have to agree.

Now, about the 'preppers'. Do you think that they regret all of their efforts, that have possibly been a waste of this precious time we have?

No, some of those goofs think the giant meteor will not destroy their little shelter.
I for one don't understand living through something so I can suffer a slower more painful death later.

We are in complete agreement.

Fear sells. All the media talk is about ratings and making money. Doom porn sells. People make a lot of money off of it. Just ask Alex Jones.

The other thing to keep in mind is that average life of a person is really short relative to overall time... A span of 100 years is nothing in the scheme of things. The odds of a SHTF scenario occurring in any one person's life time is fairly slim I'd think.

With that said, there is nothing wrong with prepping. Being prepared for an unexpected emergency whether financial collapse, weather event, etc. makes sense. Thinking you are going to be fully prepped for the coming zombie apocalypse is just borderline insane.

Personally I look forward to a solar flare hitting us within the next few years. It will highlight what a huge mistake it was to build such a vulnerable electric grid.
And the shtf all the time it just depends where you live, earthquake, volcanos, storms, tsunamis, floods... we even had our nuclear apocolypse already with Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
But globally is pretty unlikely.

the dinosaurs made an identical thread the day before the big asteroid hit the earth in the Yucatan.

Relax, we will all die soon enough. I can guarantee it will happen at the end of your life.

Everyone dying is a sad thought, and yet comforting in a quiet sort of way.

not one of us will care if we all die at once. And just think, we will have immediately solve the global warming issue, and the planet can get back to being the same constant temp it wants to be.
