Why the Rapture Doesn’t Have to Get in the Way of Your Plans

by Kristen

According to a lunatic, tomorrow is the official end of days. I can’t pretend this is going to be pleasant for everyone, as only the good will be sucked into heaven, but don’t let that get you down! It looks like the rest of us are going to have five months after tomorrow’s devastating earthquakes until the official end of the world in October. These are the most common New Year’s Resolutions, and I think this is the perfect opportunity to get them all done.

Get a Better Career
Everyone will be starting over, so now you can establish yourself in any job that you want. Always wanted to lead your own rebel group? Now is your chance. Not into upper management? Go rogue, be your own boss. Just want to bum around and read? As long as you blockade yourself in a stronghold, I don’t see why you can’t do that. Assuming you are left behind, you can now be whatever you want to be.

Try New Things
Were you resolved to branch out this year? Your options may be limited, but just change your attitude. I have always said that one person’s steak tartare is another’s apocalypse raccoon meat. Perhaps this isn’t the year that you learn a new language, but you could spend more time in museums. Plus, there are bathrooms and thick walls in those places.

survival 101

by Kristy

If you’re an avid reader of alarmist journalism (Fox News, Huffington Post) you may feel that the world is coming to an end.  Birds are falling from the sky, fish are dying in droves, and nuclear winter is upon is.  While none of these are actually cause for alarm (try finding a reputable news source), we all probably think about making that Go Bag, or Safe Room, or preparing a kit in case we have to live in our basements for an extended period….  Here is a list to get your started.

1. Sandbags and plastic sheeting (for floods/gas), plus duct tape to tape plastic around windows; tarps
2. Water, water filter, iodine tablets, containers for water (ideally collapsable)
3. Food including energy dense bars/gels (and supplies for prepping/eating like knife, canopener, etc)
4. First-aid kit and medications and vitamins (& sunscreen, bug repellant)
5. Go-Bag/ Bug-out Bag (in a framed backpack, ideally)

  • Battery flashlight/radio
  • Personal medication
  • Basic first aid kit
  • Personal items (glasses, contact products etc)
  • Book/game
  • Family photos
  • Personal papers (photocopies of insurance papers, ID)
  • Walking shoes
  • Change of clothing
  • Water bottle
  • Snack (tea/coffee)
  • Non perishable food
  • Light weight emergency blankets
  • Whistle and map & compass
  • Toiletries (toothbrush etc)
  • Ziploc bags
  • CASH and COINS
