You know.. this attitude is just baffling. So they take their own money to build up stores of necessary items and learn how to survive. Doesn't affect you... until something like this possibly happens then the millions of worthless fools come crying to the few smart ones that were at least prepared for something....

Yeah... I'd rather be looked at as paranoid and be prepared to survive if I needed rather than be a normal idiot city slicker with his thump up his ass wondering how to find water and then not even knowing how to make it safe to drink.

Did you read the comments? These guys are all complaining about their wives who left them. And they probably left because these guys are paranoid mal-adjusted nutters. There's a difference between being prepared and just being nuts.

Being hyper-defensive sure helps your cause a lot! You seem totally normal and well-adjusted!

Haha, no not really.

I'm no where near some survivalists levels.. but I don't go and demean them to make myself feel better for some reason. But then, I think if you didn't try to insult and demean your life would be devoid of all meaning so....

It's more so the blatant lying survivalist sites go for to try and make people paranoid over things that are unlikely to happen. Even in catastrophic situations (See: Hurricanes) the result is rarely ever "WOMFG ANARCHY KILL EVERYTHING" like survivalists think it will be.

Those are only the survivalists that get the media exposure.. because it sells. I mean really... how many people would read common sense survival issues unless it was hyped up and sensationalised? It gives the rest a bad name just because of those prepping for the zombie apocalypse.

You don't want to live in Omaha. Ever. Rest of the state is fine.
