I did actually sell my AR and ammo for about 3x what i paid for it. Most of the other stuff was pretty much a wash.

Why did you sell it now?

I realize the whole Mayan 2012 stuff is probably the least likely of all comprehensible doom, but still, the biggest doom date in the last decade approaches and you sell it a week before it gets here?

Why? Why not hold onto it for another twelve days?

You are a fat arsed blob who suddenly realised that survival meant MOVEMENT and EFFORT..and you compared a nice easy death to a tough physically demanding role as a survivor and thought.."FUCK IT"...AM I right?

actually, i'm a triathlete in excellent health but the rest of your translation is pretty accurate... the main issue is medical care, i'm an EMT and just know that all it would take for a gruesome slow death would be to trip and sprain an ankle in the woods while running from/after someone... i'd rather just eat a bullet in the outset and avoid the inevitable

I think i just decided that it was an Either/or situation with similar crappy outcomes.

Think about it logically:

1) Either SHTF and I try to survive and struggle and likely die a gruesome death while watching friends and family slowly starve/killed/concentration camps/whatever other doom.

OR 2) nothing happens and I wasted time and energy preparing.


I decided to live whatever life to the fullest, even if it's only 12 days, and now i have some cash to do some fun stuff with

1.Did you lose money or did you find a way to sell the gear for more than it was worth?

2.Why did you sell your prep gear? Because, logically, it won't matter? Or because you figured out most of the fear-tactics are for monetary gains on behalf of prep-gear-producers?

3.Will you buy more prep gear for the next "prophecied" end of the world date?

4.

Don't you feel silly for getting caught up in it in the first place?

1.) I made money of some of it, some of it was a wash.

2.) I just didn't want to think about it anymore, it was consuming too much time and effort and space. What's the point of living if you're spending all your time prepping instead of enjoying life.

3.) No

4.) Not really, i learned a lot of skills and met some cool people.

Yeah, I agree with most of your stuff.. It's a rational approach to eat a bullet if you really think about what it would take to survive in a post-doom world. Call it defeatist or whatever, but euthanizing myself is more humane than other scenarios.

But what if you eat a bullet because you didn't have enough water to make it through 14 days of the grid cut being off and then everything goes back to normal and you're already dead?
