Doomsday Preppers

Doomsday-Preppers-2-Cover_Art-PlainSo I will end this thread of apocalyptic posts with a series a friend of mine pointed out; Doomsday Preppers! This a National Geographic series presenting people who live their lives preparing for the worst case scenario, whatever that may be; flood, earthquake, hurricane, nuclear threat, virus outbreak, electromagnetic pulse, fuel shortages, economic collapse etc. After watching some of the clips i was amazed in the lengths that these people are planing ahead for catastrophes and calamities. They take combat courses, food supplies, shelters, make evacuation plans, i mean their whole life is planned according to a hypothetical threat, which might very well be plausible, however is that a way to pass the time? They most certainly will be better prepared than me and you, but living your life under constant fear of an uncertain end of the civilization, seems a little futile to me. Nevertheless, that might be the way of dealing with fears and anxieties for some people, giving them strength.

An app game was also generated, in which you can build your ideal bunker, get supplies etc.  The series is one of the highest rated for National Geographic, and i have to admit that it is highly informational, providing ideas and tips if i ever need them, like the fact that a lollipop can be used as a weapon!!!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not
    100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

      I haven’t spent a dime so far
      Used one of the various free themes available at wordpress
      You can pay to additionally modify your theme (different fonts, your own web address etc)
      They have tried and made it very user friendly so i do not expect you will have any issues
