Re: how prepared are you ? will you survive ? --> take the test !

sometimes i wonder if almost its better to keep the childlike mentality then to live in constant fear ...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23558931


Fear and stress kill.

My choice is already made :) I'll see what the future holds for us. All I need to survive is my brain and my social skills.

I can find my food just by wandering in the forest gathering edible plants.

With one book I can survive whatever happens.

Fear is one of the most sterile and irrational mindset. It's only helpful to produce adrenalin to run faster.


Modern people are so afraid to leave their cosy houses and electronics behind it's almost pathetic.

good response and attitude !

Score 89 and 22 months. (22 months??? pffft.....I'd do that out of my BOB.)

And I've done all this under the radar so's not to look like a bat-shit-crazy Prepper like the loons on TV.

HA!!!

Really, I just put everything together becuase I have a family to take care of. It's sort of like insurance. Hope I never need it. But I certianly don't worry about a halt in the delivery of goods, a virus locking us down, or a freak zombie attack. It is comforting in a wierd sort of way.

cheers

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27605310


I watch the show and these folks do not need any help making fun of themselves. It is a given they look nuts.

That being said, I am a prepper and have been doing it for years. It is a comfort to know when the lights go out I can have power and my ice cream won't melt. It does not need to be the end of the entire world to be the end of yours.

If something happens in my area, I can pull out my equipment and have a big pot of hot soup or beans ready for anyone who needs it. I even have bowls and soup spoons. Other folks may not have a lot...but they can pool it and we can help each other survive. "Stone Soup" was not lost on me.

Having people congregating for meals and communicating needs and offerings creates the kind of society that may, in the long run, allow more of us to survive. Weapons in the mix are just necessary for the greater good.

Any group can be victimized by predatory survivalists. But the larger size of the group with something to protect will give them a run for their money. Sharing food, fear, hope and information will help prevent despair and create bonds.

In a real end-time event, at least we won't die alone. There is a comfort in that. So I prep not all for my family but for others as well. I really do not wish to sit in a hole knowing others are just outside starving. When the food is gone, then dying will be just the next thing to do. I for one will do it with a clean conscience.wave

I have come to terms with the idea that the "Doomsday Preppers" show is making those preppers look like nuts. Whether or not in the end, their fears and concerns bear out in reality and they will end up winners or losers isn't in fact the issue here as nobody can solve it in the present.

However if we look at those preppers' activities as a somewhat intensive and time-consuming game, it looks quite interesting. Most people are into far less constructive, educational and future-oriented activities.

Re: how prepared are you ? will you survive ? --> take the test !
Whether you survive or not has only to a very, very low percentage to do with prepardness or not. Your higher self leads you automatically into the right way.

A very dangerous situation makes it apparently impossible for me to escape from this situation. The impossible happens and I can flee and survive. While I flee, I see all at once the death situations of many of my past incarnations.
I die a natural death in my bed, and then I see me in a group. I am in danger mostly, but all friends die and only I survive. Then I am in a situation where I die, although I was, nevertheless, at a “secure” place and others were even more in danger. The others mainly survive.
I realize that the death is only an illusion just like the existence in the 3-rd dimension; the person, however, cannot remember any more that everything is an illusion. However, I recognize the single incarnation - the phase between birth and death, as a necessity and that the ego of each of us rightly therefore strives to survive. All of us wanted and have chosen consciously these incarnations. I recognize every single life as a semester of a graduation, where a balance is drawn.
You get the fair mark for this segment. As soon as you have reflected upon it and have learnt your lessons from it, the next semester begins. If your graduation was positive, you get new teaching material, if you failed, the same or similar tasks wait for you. It is a quite natural circulation, far from something awful. It is naturally, normally, logically and inevitably.
Stage change: The three big warning quakes have already happened. In the second, I know that the 14-minute quake will immediately begin. I leave very quickly a football stadium crowded with many people and go to a place where I am not in danger of falling off wall parts.
Suddenly I am aware of the sense and purpose of our existence and that anyhow the higher self of every human decides about life and death.
My “seeking shelter” seems to me so narrow-minded and ridiculous that I immediately run back into the stadium in which just a match takes place. I start to warn the people and beg them to leave the stadium as soon as possible. I put my own life into the service of many unknown people, conscious, that my survival chances thereby sink rapidly.

This Doomsday Prepper show is terrible and not representative of any preppers I know, but puts on the most grotesque and bizarre folks with limited social skills and little bushcraft skills and minimal agricultural skills and probably zero creative skills to produce art and craft as the Native American or Pioneer folks were prone to doing. I'll bet that very few of them are trained in medicine.

But why would we expect any differently? It's complete mockery of being self-reliant in any balanced and thoughtful way.

I watched one painfully bad pilot episode. No thanks.

national geographic is more about exploring the social trends and sociology . they seek to learn by understanding . I do not think they are making fun of preppers just observing.

 Quoting: waitn4end

I think many (if not most) of those who appeared in the NatGeo show are people who suffer from some fixed idea. They seem to have some fixed idea about how it will all end, and put every energy they can muster into preparing for this one eventuality. As an example, one prepper who was preparing with his family for the eventuality of an EMP and everything he did in prepping was geared toward this single possibility. That's why some of them look somewhat less than rational. But also, the show is shaped in such a way that that "nuttiness" is being zoomed into, as it were.

If the lights went out and grocery stores became empty, would you be able to make it on your own? We're evaluating you on the same scale as the Doomsday Preppers so you can get your own Prepper Score and find out how long you would survive. says I got 2-4 months.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23558931


The questions are bogus, and Biased.
They make assumptions that are unrealistic.

For instance;They ask if your vehicle is EMP proof. No vehicle is truly EMP proof, unless stored in an EMP proof bunker. Otherwise it is just wishful thinking that it might be EMP proof, as no one will no for sure until it is to late.

5 gal of water per person, per day is a very low figure.
Yet for bugging out, 2 Gal a day might work, for 3 to 5 days.
The longer the time period the more you will need, plus storage container leakage will increase with time.

The bunker/storage mentality is opposed to the Nomadic mentality. Yet historically, it is the Nomadic lifestyle that was chosen in order to survive.

So this whole thing is based around false assumptions of what will constitute Survival.

After my emergency Twinkie, and Ding-Dong supply runs out.

I think I would fall back on eating the adult neighbors first, chaining their children up in the Wood Shed, and eating them one arm, or leg at a time.

They are plump and juicy, not too much fat, not too much lean.

Preppers, I have to disappoint you: To survive will have almost nothing to do with prepardness. Your gigher self will automatically lead you in the diretion to fulfill your life task.
However, if you feel fine to prepare so do it. You will never be bored. tounge

There will be a lot to be paranoid about.

Ant and grasshopper story.

99% of people in today's society have become grasshoppers.

There are many grasshoppers on this thread calling the ant paranoid. When winter arrives, they will be claiming that the ant is evil and should be forced to share with them disregarding his hard work.

The general population today doesn't even know how to cook a simple meal from scratch. They can't imagine a world without modern conveniences.

A huge percentage of them are on psychiatric drugs. When they come off of those meds due to no ability to refill them, they will be DANGEROUS individuals.

So you grasshoppers claim that ants should embrace the culture after TSHTF. The culture of Chaos will rule the day and ants want no part. The ants just need to keep a low profile and stay hidden from the grasshoppers for long enough for them to die out over the winter. After the spring comes, the ants will come out and create a new society with ant values.
