I'm reading One
, a book about what would happen should an EMP hit America (total devastation and mass die-offs) and it's scaring the sh!t out of
So I wake up at night, head into the bathroom, try to turn the lights on. Nothing. What with all the doomsday predictions going on (and I probably had
too much to drink) I though that THIS WAS IT, an EMP happened, and I was very close to starting a panic in the house and rushing the grocery store to
stock up. You can call me paranoid, but we almost never get power outages here, and each one gets me in a small panic thinking an EMP happened.
Bottom line, seeing the street lights outside and hearing the traffic calmed me down significantly. Got to stop thinking about these doomsday
scenarios and enjoy what time we may have left.
America was (and to a certain extent still is) a wonderful country to live in. We should sometimes get off ATS, turn off the Alex Jones Show, enjoy
the wonderful time we are living in (even if it's a recession), and worry about various doomsday scenarios when they actually happen.
Yes, you should spend at least some time and money preparing. Read Food Bubble
about how fragile our food distribution
system is. Buy and learn to use a gun. But don't let this consume your life!
People in the 3rd World would kill to live in the country you're living now and (at least hypothetically) people even 100 years ago would kill to
spend even ONE DAY in this highly-technological society. So bottom line, enjoy what you have while you have it.
You don't want to spend your pre-apocalypse days thinking about various apocalyptic scenarios and your post-apocalyptic days wishing you would have
spent more time enjoying what you had when you had it.
