From John Titor:

For a change, I have a question for all of you. I want you to think very hard. What major disaster was expected and prepared for in the last year and
a half that never happened?
(It is generally agreed that John is referring to the Y2K bug.)
We live in a world recovering from years of war, poison, destruction and hate. All of it, courtesy of the thinking and actions of people that live
right now in the same world you do, worrying about which stocks to buy or whether or not a stranger is lying to them on the Internet.
While you sit by and watch your Constitution being torn away from you, you willfully eat poisoned food, buy manufactured products no one needs
and turn an uncaring eye away from millions of people suffering and dying all around you
. Is this the "Universal Law" you subscribe to?
Perhaps I should let you all in on a little secret. No one likes you in the future. This time period is looked at as being full of lazy,
self-centered, civically ignorant sheep. Perhaps you should be less concerned about me and more concerned about that.

Can you tell us the foods that are unsafe now? Is there anything we can do to prepare for the war you are describing?
Titor: I tried to consolidate your questions into a basic list. I hope this helps.
1. Do not eat or use products from any animal that is fed and eats parts of its own dead.
2. Do not kiss or have intimate relations with anyone you do not know.
3. Learn basic sanitation and water purification.
4. Be comfortable around firearms. Learn to shoot and clean a gun.
5. Get a good first aid kit and learn to use it.
6. Find 5 people within 100 miles that you trust with your life and stay in contact with them.
7. Get a copy of the US Constitution and read it.
8. Eat less.
9. Get a bicycle and two sets of spare tires. Ride it 10 miles a week.
10. Consider what you would bring with you if you had to leave your home in 10 min. and never return.
Maybe, instead of trying to disprove Titor's claim, that he is a time-traveler, we should focus on the advice he gave. He has gotten everything
right so far, that I have seen. Now there's the mad-cow claim and the statement about Iraq that he made:

I have tried to tell people about CJD disease and it seems to be "catching on" in Europe.

"The "Mad Cow" story here is yet to begin but don't worry, the fruited gelatin deserts are safe."
"I'm glad to see it's so easy to dismiss the Middle East. Yes, I suppose it is a no brainer but pretty soon it will be a 'no-armer' and a
Whether he is a very intelligent man that made predictions by analyzing current events, or a time-traveler trying to give us a glimpse of our
future, is irrelevant. What is relevant, is the fact that his predictions have been coming true. Doesn't anybody see the importance of his message?
Who cares if he came from 2036 or not? The fact remains that if things continue the way they are, his "future" will very likely be ours. I think
that if nothing else, Titor has outlined some major failings on our part that need to be addressed, before it's too late.
While I don't really disagree with his question, "Have you considered that your society might be better off if half of you were dead?" (referring
to "a world war in 2015 that killed nearly three billion people") I would very much like to regain my faith in, and respect for, the human race.
People used to believe that they could affect change, even if the odds were against them, through determination. What happened?
