I'll bite in a serious way on this...because hey, as much as we want to ridicule it, millions take the date at various levels of seriousness and I
still don't know what to think 100% myself. There are different levels tho,... Honestly?
Level 1 - Humanity Happens
This is where people do stupid things because the date gives some subconcious excuse. Anything from War in the Middle East to rioting in cities. I'm
well set for this with enough food, water and basic things for light and heat to easily hold through whatever period this would likely cover. I'd hope
we all are... Basic preparedness here I'd say.
Level 2 - Ascension or Rapture happens.
I put them together because to those who believe in one or the other, the way it'll look to the rest of us poor schmucks won't be different enough to
matter much I suppose. I don't have a ticket on either ride, so I figure if this happens...not too much will change. After all, how many of our
leaders from President to School Board President earned themselves a ticket either?
There will just be a lot of normal people that aren't there
anymore...and a real bad few years to come.
Level 3 - Something wicked this way com....errr...arrives!
Well, water impacts are most likely....so as mentioned in another flood thread, living in Missouri is strategically important for the tidal waves
generated along whatever ocean something splashed into. If it isn't a meteor..then it must have a Romulan Cloaking device because nothing large enough
to matter beyond a few tidal waves and some clean beach front can really be there at this late date. It would be almost on top of us in cosmic terms.
I mean, we're WELL within time frame it takes to travel to the MOON using some paths for goodness sakes. Nothing of size appears to be there. So
preparing here seems limited for need anymore.
Level 4 - Put head between knees, stretch hard and kiss own...err..yeah Bye!
Well, this is the 'we never even thought of THAT!' scenario and I guess what my 2% 'Uh-Oh' meter is still jangling over. In this case? Either what
I've done to prep for power loss and loss of social order coming by ANY event which could cause it...is enough? Or...My other half and I have said the
things we need to say to each other..and we;ll have another close chat I imagine before the day. Just in case.... I mean, this is an 'Ooops' you would
never have a do over from. However 1:Million...I wouldn't want to realize we were all wrong ...and hadn't taken the time to make personal things right
where it's so easy to do.
