    Same here, though I'm super intrigued by the idea of being a survivor. I'm not sure if being part of the re-building process is of interest to me. Everyone would be fighting about everything... besides... no tv? seriously guys. I love nature and all that shit, but I have no desire to go back to olden times like that.
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

      that's where i am most days. i want to be able to survive, but don't really want to have to deal with it. plus, sometimes i look around me and realize, 'man, my friends and i have no skills without a computer.' so unless being able to quote obscure lines from movies is a useful skill, it's better for the rest of the survivors if i just eat it.

        guys - you would survive fine. we have had more than our fair share of natural disasters over here in NZ, and common sence comes right into play.
        One year - down on the farm, isolated, as in miles from shops, a town, etc....the snow was so deep that we were stranged for 7 days. No power, no running water, no flushing toilets....but you tackle one wee problem at a time.....and deal with it.
        We were lucky that we had a wood fire - so we could cook food, and keep warm. We moved all the beds into the kitchen etc....
        The earthquakes here in Christchurch were another natural disaster that proved trying for us all....but commonsence prevailed.
        Natural disasters do bring out the best and the worst in people thou - which is sad. We humans tend to remember the bad things that happen, and sadly looting was rampant during our earthquakes.

        ...small steps....

          Acording to new Mayan discoveries, we have at least 7 thousand years left.
          Although it will be fun watching the believers on and around the 21st.
          Keep it going, Mark

            Yep, I don't know how anything works. I can't build shit. I could cook though, and help hunting, and tend the farm. Eventually, I could teach the children things.

            guys, we could make it.

                I suppose that all depends on your opinion on the appeal of basketball players.

                  USA Today - Newly Discovered Mayan calendar goes way past 2012

                  Not that I bought into it anyway.

                  And I do prep a little, but not because I think there's a zombie apocalypse imminent. I grew up in earthquake country (Northridge - 7.2 anyone?) and went through the Rodney King riots, so I have literally seen the streets in flames, people pulled out of their cars, and no gas/water/electricity/food for more than a week.

                    If shit goes down, I live in the fucking scrub dessert. I'll go hunt cow, jackrabbit, snake, and camel (yes, some rich idiot has camels up here) and leave the city snobs to robbing HEB. If it really goes down, that's what Big Bend and Nacogdoches are for, as well as some of our stockpiles.
                    (We generally keep emergency supplies and emergency rations around in case of "snowstorms" (2 inches and everyone panics around here) and haboobs, as well as just in case humans fuck with other humans and we're affected.)
                    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                        I will be in Cabo on 12/12/12. I bet they will be going crazy. And then three days later it's my birthday. So I will be going crazy.

                          A friend of mine that lives an hour north of here is looping REM's It's the end of the world as we know it(and I feel fine) for a party she is having.

                          I've survived weeklong+ power outages, ice storms, etc. I do fine up until about day 3. When we got hit by the remnants of Hurricane Ike back in 2008, I cooked everything out on the grill and that was cool.

                          I at least convinced my husband to hold off on getting some weaponry for a couple of months. I understand the why of being prepped. I just don't want to worry about it. If shit were to hit the fan, I would rather not be dead and not have to worry about it. I hate camping to be honest. That's pretty much why I would be good if something like that would happen.

                            We were actually talking about this the other day at class. How maybe people are going to do things they have never gotten the gut to do before, just in case. So I'll be taking my camera wherever I go.

                              We always celebrate the Winter Solstice, this year will be no different.

                              BTW if the world as we know it were to end (the technological part) I think we'd be okay, we live in a rural area and DH and I are very handy, it's all this 21st century stuff that I'm not good at.

                                Five years ago, (dec 2nd, 2007) our area was hit by a massive wind & rain storm that ripped out the main transmission lines, and a whole lot of the distribution lines. Our town was dark for five days, and some went over two weeks without electricity. There was no getting into or out of our area, due to the trees down across the highways & roads, for several days. Other places were flooded badly.

                                Neighbors tend to pull together, I've noticed. There were no riots, no serious problems -- but there were a lot of people that went out and checked on people that might need more help. People offered candles, flashlights, use of their cell phones, etc.

                                I think that if anything goes down, survival might depend on helping each other - so, if you have stocked up on something, share it, and someone else might have something to share with you.
