I'm mentally prepared for whatever I must face. Personally, I believe that's worth more than a bombshelter full of food and water.
I am 23 with college debt and I just recently took a job as a dishwasher, which is the first job I've had in a while. Needless to say, I don't have
the cash to procure the means to survive. Even if I did, I have an illness that will kill me within a week or two of not taking my medicine, which
needs to be refrigerated or it will go bad. Basically, when TSHTF if I don't die instantly, I'll probably die shortly after.
If in the next few months I inherit a fortune from a long lost relative or win the lotto, then I'll consider preparing food, water, medicine, general
emergency supplies, and shelter. Right now, all I can do is prepare myself mentally, physically, and spiritually. My recommendation to those in my
position would be to get in shape, pray to whatever deity you believe in to give you the strength to survive and the courage to face death when it
eventually comes for you. If you can learn about basic wilderness survival - what plants to eat; how to start a fire with just a knife, some rope, and
wood; how to set traps, etc. - it's not a bad idea. Knowing how to do these things could save your life.
Good luck everyone, and just remember that if we go down, we go down together. We're all in the same little blue boat, rocketing through the black
ocean of space towards our ultimate destiny, and I pray for humanity's sake that we will all find a way to work together to survive whatever is in
