I think, however, for at least a good portion of these types of people, and not all by any means, that the december 2012 idea at least really sparked something in them, game them that push to prepare, and perhaps, is the number one reason that they prepare.
But no one will admit it. It's a taboo topic for prepper types.

The whole concept of prepping is a mental illness. I've seen the show and these people are borderline certifiable. They subject their poor families to ludicrous drills and things which do nothing but seperate them from reality. One guy actually had a normal son who didn't want to collect water, but ride his bike.
This phenomenon of prepping is actually going to cause one of these whackos to instigate something awful just so that they can put their underground shipping container to use.
