After surviving a near-miss when Halley’s Comet failed to be pulled into Earth’s orbit in 1986 as predicted, and avoiding the ruinous effects of Y2K, Earth’s inhabitants again face the prospect of a calamitous end of the world. "The Red Cross urges Canadians to be ready to take care of themselves and their families for 72 hours in any emergency," said Denis Dion, national director of disaster management with the Canadian Red Cross. "Two-thirds of Canadians say they have not taken steps to prepare for a disaster." Various organizations are predicting the end of the world December 21, with scenarios including geomagnetic reversal, collision with an interplanetary object, destruction by a supernova, and global annihilation as predicted by the Mesoamerican calendar. "While NASA scientists assure us the world will not end on Friday, disasters can and do happen every day in Canada," adds Dion. "The Red Cross encourages Canadians to prepare for more commonplace emergencies like house fires, natural disasters and epidemics." cont'd: http://www.redcross.ca/article.asp?id=44833&tid=001 [/quote] Seems to be the official site that one. Maybe site's been hacked :yoda: - [/quote] That's what I was thinking...but does anybody really think the Canadian Red Cross would be a target of some "trendy hackers"? Nah...the Canadian Red Cross is fucking serious. [/quote]

Canada's Red Cross also recommended an emergency survival kit for every household, which includes – in addition to food and water – some cash in small bills, extra car and house keys and a manual can opener
