Who buys the food? so stock up a little extra and quit nagging him. You are on this board, so logically you have some paranoia. Do what you got to do. buy a little extra and give the man some peace.

For those of you assholes that assume I'm being some nagging, schizophrenic, paranoid lunatic - I've brought this up as a "did you know" aside exactly three times in two months.

Some of you are just hell-bent on being mean and insensitive - for whatever reason. Perhaps you are overly dominated by the women in your own lives and rebel here as the "tough guy".

Those of you who gave intelligent and practical responses - most of you - thank you. I know I'm not alone and others could use this advice, man or woman.

The rest of you are just racking up some pretty bad (real) karma and are obviously not in loving relationships or 12 years old. Being a jerk doesn't make you cool. This isn't high school.

Re: Why do people like their heads in the sand?? Husband won't listen.
the only thing likely to work for an average amerkan male is to make the case that given the rate of inflation and the general increase in food prices with the associated loss of value of the dollar, better to buy now and store it than buy later when the price goes up and the dollar further depreciates. Most men respond well to dollar savings, your milage may vary.

Sometimes, however, you just cant fix stupid.

Of course the above tactic may work for food or other generalized consumables, but not for weapons and generalized defensive measures, perhaps you could tell him that someones been following you home from work or the store or something of such manner or read the police blotter to him aloud.....

So true. I'd love to get some kind of weapon "just in case"...and it is practical in this society for sure. You never know what can happen. Maybe not a gun (though some on here make me want one!), but any woman in these times should be prepared for anything.

Inflation...stocking up....great :)

Re: Why do people like their heads in the sand?? Husband won't listen.
OP do not take your husband's action (or inaction) personally. I know it's very easy to get offended by his position or stance on this subject, but consider this. What if - in his own mind - he's too scared to envision a life experience or circumstance where everything is falling apart around him? You know, from having the rug pulled out from under him. Many people can't cope with those thoughts, it's too unbearable for them to think about losing everything about reality that they have known to become 'comfortable' with - so they do whatever it takes to avoid having those thoughts...

I say you do everything in your power that you feel you need to do to prepare. You just have to politely learn to recognize your husband's inaction for what it is, and take care of your business on your own. Consider your hubby to have the mentality of a child. A child who refuses to believe what a parent is instructing him... IF you think about it in that sense you will be less annoyed with him. Because we really don't blame or get truly upset with children, we recognize the naivety that they possess.

Now if your husband started to interfere with your free will to prepare as you see fit, well that might change things and be a significant strain on your relationship. I get the sense that he will let you go on about your ways, even if he doesn't agree with them.

Sex has absolutely NOTHING to do with why he doesn't want to prepare for a catastrophe. Our sex life is fine and good. Let's just take that bit off the table because it isn't relevant in this circumstance. It may be in some, but not here. It's his refusal to deal with current events that may have a bearing on our future. He lives for the day - can't blame him for that and I wish I could do the same, really.

It sounds like you're saying if I give the man a blow job he will give me whatever I want. If that worked, I'd have a new wardrobe and drive a Jaguar.

Re: Why do people like their heads in the sand?? Husband won't listen.
plain fact of the matter is that anyone unaware of a sea change for the worse in the culture is likely too stupid to rely upon or so frightened by the fear of accepting the coming unavoidable losses and conflicts that they are likely to be rendered unreliable when the time for action presents itself.
There is no easy advice to hand out in a scenario where the man of the house has so much less a pair than his wife. Where the cojones were lost exactly and why, that's better evaluated at another time.

Re: Why do people like their heads in the sand?? Husband won't listen.
I am so tired of trying to convince my husband that we should at least stock up on some extra water & canned goods - let alone listen to anything I'm trying to tell him about what's going on. He just does not want to know. So, I just told him this, "Ok, so if something happens I don't want to hear how hungry or thirsty you are. If you are prepared to die, fine."

What the hell is wrong with people? Why not stock up just in case something does happen? Should I have to stay here and die with him???

If I were to tell people that a big solar flare is going to come, it's a matter of time...they'd think I was a nutcase. I can't even talk to my husband about it. Where do you go from here - just die with them? (no kids btw)
 Quoting: Serendipitous


Imagine having kids and dealing with a stupid of this caliber. It's like he can't see the writing on the wall. I advised him NOT to buy this house, but him in his infinite manly wisdom proceeded with that. I do not believe a solar flare is coming, but something tells me something is coming very soon. Just stock up on dry and canned goods and get a water filtration system. It will give you some peace of mind. Mine would rather drink cheap beer and pass out watching WWE than to have an intelligent conversation. It is what it is...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1324238


... You know why idiots like you get away with saying shit like that? Lesbianism is acceptable these days. That's exactly what it is. By the day you pretend to love your husband, if just barely it seems, and then by night you log onto porn websites and rub yourself to women and probably even engage in some lesbian sex with your 1 and only other real friend.

SEXISM IS RETARDED. You are no good for anyone in this state. You are a poison to this planet. Fuck off.

Why does he not want to know or do anything to protect himself or "us"?

Seems this is a case for a professional, really. Something has to be running pretty deep there. It makes no sense to me otherwise.

Exactly. It's not like I'm saying pick up and move away (though I'd like to! We live on the coast near DC) Asking someone to prepare - just a LITTLE - is not a whole lot to ask. Seems pretty logical and almost rhetorical to me.

It's his refusal to deal with current events that may have a bearing on our future. He lives for the day - can't blame him for that and I wish I could do the same, really.

It sounds like you're saying if I give the man a blow job he will give me whatever I want. If that worked, I'd have a new wardrobe and drive a Jaguar.

say what you wish, but any man unconcerned about his mates or his families worries or securities, has spent his worry currency somewhere else.
Youre somehow unable to state your case with conviction, or he doesnt care if he, or you, survives, for some reason you are yet unaware of.

Now that makes sense. And, it's cause for pause and thought. I may not be stating my case with conviction because I don't want to seem like I'm on the crazy train - but still...why wouldn't he care about survival? That is the question here. Why does he not want to know or do anything to protect himself or "us"?

Seems this is a case for a professional, really. Something has to be running pretty deep there. It makes no sense to me otherwise.

Thanks.

being that i am a professional in this, i'm doing my best to get you on track. YOU must first deal with the anchor line you find yourself tangled up in before you can save others. Your frustration is understandable, but there is another reason you are so frustrated with your partners refusal. You seem to need his approval for something that you should be able to do for yourself, by yourself, something that any being should do automatically, which is to work towards your best interests now, and in the future.
What is it?

Re: Why do people like their heads in the sand?? Husband won't listen.
I am so tired of trying to convince my husband that we should at least stock up on some extra water & canned goods - let alone listen to anything I'm trying to tell him about what's going on. He just does not want to know. So, I just told him this, "Ok, so if something happens I don't want to hear how hungry or thirsty you are. If you are prepared to die, fine."

What the hell is wrong with people? Why not stock up just in case something does happen? Should I have to stay here and die with him???

If I were to tell people that a big solar flare is going to come, it's a matter of time...they'd think I was a nutcase. I can't even talk to my husband about it. Where do you go from here - just die with them? (no kids btw)
 Quoting: Serendipitous


Imagine having kids and dealing with a stupid of this caliber. It's like he can't see the writing on the wall. I advised him NOT to buy this house, but him in his infinite manly wisdom proceeded with that. I do not believe a solar flare is coming, but something tells me something is coming very soon. Just stock up on dry and canned goods and get a water filtration system. It will give you some peace of mind. Mine would rather drink cheap beer and pass out watching WWE than to have an intelligent conversation. It is what it is...

... You know why idiots like you get away with saying shit like that? Lesbianism is acceptable these days. That's exactly what it is. By the day you pretend to love your husband, if just barely it seems, and then by night you log onto porn websites and rub yourself to women and probably even engage in some lesbian sex with your 1 and only other real friend.

SEXISM IS RETARDED. You are no good for anyone in this state. You are a poison to this planet. Fuck off.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7889521


Hey COWARD...who is being sexist here??? Um...I think you are. Nobody needs to hear any more of your childish wailing so you won't be posting any more on this thread.

Go play in the street.
