There may be a million speculations out there about what will happen in the last ten days of this year, but the simple fact is this - it is impossible
for you or I to sort through the speculations and find truth. The best you can do for yourself and your family is this - don't panic.
Having said that, I'd like this thread to contain only things that are verifiably true - events that actually happen or are scheduled to happen,
things that you witness or have excellent sources for. I have no idea if anything significant will happen or what significant means, or what effect
any of that will have. All I can do is emphasize the importance of keeping calm and carrying on, as best you can.
I view possible TEOTWAWKI scenarios as being divided roughly into three major groups.
Group One - Extraterrestrial.
Not necessarily aliens, though alien would be included in this, any extraterrestrial threat would be something outside our own biosphere. Could be
Sun-related events, or asteroids, or yes, invasion by an alien species, or revelation of such. Demolition of the earth to create an interstellar
Group Two - Terrestrial.
Terrestrial, I would classify as Mother Nature - floods, famine, earthquakes, volcanoes, wildfires, pandemic etc. Anything that is not immediately
human caused. Puterman is doing an excellent job of tracking this category over in Fragile Earth, so I'm mostly going to leave that alone.
Group Three - Humanity
This category includes anything that is immediately human based, e.g. economic collapse, any variety of warfare, bioterrorism, chemical attacks, food
or water shortages, human caused EMPS, zombies.
My goal with this thread is to attempt to track mostly the third group, with sprinklings from the other two if they occur. I'm not going to speculate
as to outcomes, only state actual facts as clearly as possible. Please feel free to join in. If something occurs near enough for you to check it out
safely, do so if possible, and document as carefully as you are able. The biggest killer in any disaster is not the disaster itself, it is fear and
uncertainty. Indeed, fear and uncertainty could end up being the only disaster that occurs, so by doing our best to stay calm and react only to
factual information, we should be better off.
Remember, the information out there may be infinite (practically) or absurd, or mostly incorrect, but Doug Adams had it right.. DON'T PANIC.
