If its the rapture then that might be ok. For zombies, civil unrest or most events I choose to avoid Wal Mart or places like Army bases or the local NG armory, I just feel like I might die if I try to go hangout there.

I didnt realize people thought bugging out to Wal Mart was a good idea...lol...that is about as bright as the people who plan on storming Army bases for supplies.
Depends on the type of Apoc... If there's a rapture like scenario where everyone disappears, that's where I'm going first. Then to the Lexus dealership. Then to helicopter store.
Ummm... Can you actually fly a helicopter?

Trial and error, its not like he needs a license at that point.

I'm pretty certain that the point of YOLO is not to make the only once as short as possible.

(And I still maintain that YOLO is just "Carpe Diem" for people who aren't willing to mess with Latin)

...I'm sorry, I wasn't paying attention to what I was thinking.

I thought Justin Bieber coined the word "Yolo"?

Bugging out to Walmart is just silly.

IKEA has better bathrooms, real beds, and Swedish Meatballs. :awesome:

I would bugout to a shopping mall like "Dawn of the Dead". Hopefully there will be less Zed babies and more women like the one in the movie, though. I could see myself playing that "name the celebrity" game too.
