Is this the "Global Time Debt Bomb Explodes San Andreas Fault" Thread? :mrgreen:

I beginning to think the San Andreas "Big One" will occur right after they accurately predict AGW :crazy:

Just the same, I keep my BOT stocked and ready outside of the garage. If my house is trashed I can just camp in my driveway until I dig things out of the garage.

My sister & BiL live in Southern California right on top of the San Andreas fault. The sum total of their preparations consist of two cases of bottled water, two pantry shelves of canned goods, some box wine, a box of MREs (acquired as part of a desultory attempt at improving their pathetic readiness posture after a particularly stern lecture from me) and various and sundry readiness supplies I've sent them (Fenix flashlights, batteries, beeswax candles, first aid kits, a Goal Zero portable solar set-up, Fuerhand lanterns, etc.). They refuse to acquire firearms or ammunition, although they did attend a firearms training session that friends of theirs who are more heads-up (and would probably loan them a gun or two in the event of The Big One) insisted they attend. In other words, they are woefully unprepared for any kind of natural or man-made disaster.

I no longer bug them about preparedness. Sadly, people like them are going to have to learn the hard way why preparedness matters.

I don't try to consul or explain why it's best to prep for bad times anymore to those who don't.
I've come to realize that it's probably just a natural selection of nature kind of thing. Some people just aren't meant to survive for the betterment of the species. One of my co workers is a perfect example. So unprepared he doesn't even wear or take a coat in his car to come to work. Complains loudly about how cold it is walking from or to his car. Lives about 25 miles from work. Without help he would not even make it five miles if he had to hoof it. It comes down to the quote " I can explain it to you , but I can't understand it for you "
As of now I bet you got me wrong

That quote just summed up a lot for me.
