I would NOT want to be anywhere with large crowds of people. The average person is stupid, and likely to panic, or, just as bad, think only of
themselves and not care if those nearby are hurt or killed. I would not want to be at work or school, because then I would be cut off from my home
supplies. Probably the home is the best place to be, since that is where you are most prepared to handle a trouble situation. If you have a car, it
would be ideal to have it within a short walking distance, and hopefully with a few survival supplies inside.
Small towns or farms are probably the best place to be, as opposed to a big city. On a farm, you have food and supplies, even if you are not a
survivalist, you probably have more that most survivalists in the city do, just because it is part of your livelihood. In a small town, most of the
people likely know each other. People are less likely to take advantage of someone they know as opposed to a total stranger, even a casual
acquaintance, and more likely to work together to overcome problems. I am unlikely to steal food from my neighbour if I am his friend, for instance,
and vice versa, and more likely to work with him, knowing I won't have to guard my back against him as well as the Situation X.
I most certainly would not want to be in any Third World country during such a situation, for what I would think are obvious reasons. I also would
not want to be in the USA, for fear of martial law or other government abuses of power. I don't mean to say that martial law is automatically bad,
but I am saying that I trust the US government less than almost any other. They are more likely to screw up the situation through either
incompetence, or through self-interest, ignoring the general needs of the populace in favour of the rich and powerful.
Hmm, other things. I wouldn't want to be on vacation when it happened. I wouldn't want to be on an airplane, or stuck in traffic, or in an
airport. Large buildings would be bad, due to the crowds and cramped environment, especially if you were on a very high floor.
It is a delicate topic, but there are certain places that certain racial groups would likely not want to be during Situation X. For example, a male,
twenty-something Arab probably does not want to be at a location where a terrorist attack has just occurred, even though he had nothing to do with it.
(I had a Muslim friend who was at King's Cross during 7/7, and man he was scared out of his mind! Fortunately, nothing bad happened to him beyond a
small cut on his leg from flying debris, but it could have easily been worse, both in terms of physical damage, and the reactions of those near
Yeah, this post is long enough, probably no one read this far, anyway.
