Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

I don't prepare to fail, period. I can adapt if circumstances change but I dont plan to fail. I don't plan to fail either. I do plan for the possibility that it might happen anyways. 'cause sometimes things do go wrong. :wink: I am not, nor is ZS, saying "stand around and wait to die". Just the opp...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

if I fail then i'll probably be dead before I realise it.
I just don't intend to fail.
there seems to be a fatalist philosophy at work on this thread.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Grumpy, I think raptor is right. We must be prepared to die in a SHTF event. It doesn't mean we don't prep, and we do fight death. But the flip side is we must be prepared for death. 100% of us die. Eventually. The questions are "when" and "where." Prepping can influence those, but cannot fully con...

Ok Lets break this down into manageable pieces. when TEOTWAKI happens, and it will its inevitable, TEOTWAWKI means many things to many people.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

I don't think many people have a clue about life after SHTF because not many people are preparing for it. If a real SHTF event occurs; I honestly do not think millions will live long enough to find out what a PAW looks like. many people are in for a rude awakening, trouble is by that time it will b...

Barter wont even be safe for many years post SHTF, harvests will be minimal at best, you'll be lucky if you have enough to eat there wont be any excess to trade. mankind managed for many thousands of years without coinage of any kind, once you give something a value its something another person want...

It was in the link I posted. From a weather site i saw no link to a weather site just a reference to some movie. of no matter, ...

nothing to do with a movie, this was REAL life until about 12,000 years ago for the people of these islands.

if the ice at the poles melt, all that fresh water coming into the Atlantic and Irish sea will stop the Gulf Stream stone dead and Britain will have a new ice age.

Re: When will The Big One hit New Madrid Seismic Zone?

we don't have much of earthquakes in the UK. I believe they have some up North, places like Lancashire, and they are very very minor, not noticeable on the surface. not down south, our region is Granite and earthquakes don't happen here.
