    Yes. Especially their economic "theories".

    It's on Discovery... they had it on last night and I think they're running it again this afternoon (now) east coast time.

    First, I like the idea of preparedness, I like and own firearms, I don't want to live in a hole in the ground. If things get to where the zombies have taken over, or the world is truly ending whatever your vision of that is, there won't be any more music, or for that matter anything else worthwhile going on, and living isn't just pumping air in and out of your lungs. I'm for hanging on, but not to clinging to a life raft in freezing shark infested waters listening to NICKELBACK at 95 DB.

    Note:

    In the event of a total collapse of all known civilizations, Guitar Center will conduct a special one time only 15% off event, possibly extending it through the following weekend (weather permitting.) (Certain Exclusions to Apply.)

    It is simple...you can't "get ready" after the balloon goes up.

    Gotsa be done before.

    At least that's the way I see things.

    I agree 100% with this - but the real question would be is it worth the time, energy, and expense to get ready for every possible thing that might happen, no matter how far-fetched or remote the possibility might be?

    I think this is about as likely as a meteor falling onto my porch and wiping me out as I'm cooking supper, and if you'll excuse me I think it's time to go light the charcoal...

    I've never seen the show, and I don't feel like I need a doomsday bunker. But, I would like an underground tunnel to run from my basement to my detached garage (garage is built into the side of a hill, so the garage part is at or below basement level). I always figured such a tunnel would be way to expensive to build... but, it would be pretty cool.

    Around 1960 my school sent us home with plans for a bomb shelter...Nikita Khruschev..."we will bury you". In case of nuclear attack at school you were supposed to get under your desk...:lol:

    Regarding the Mayans, aren't they basically extinct...? Guess they didn't see that coming...

    It's a pretty funny show. I've never saw a full show? I'm a channel surffer, and if something doesn't catch my interests, I am flippin' to another.

    As for me, I've got a bunker for all my gear! After all, there won't be anyone to offend when the "END" arrives. No one can complain about how loud my music is! Long live rock & roll, even after the "END"! LOL

    Some doomsday things kinda make sense. An EMP strike. Yellowstone erupting. An asteroid impact. I get those. Those could happen.

    The thing I don't get is people who think that there's going to be a magnetic pole flip. There's no scientific evidence to support that this will happen in the next 1000 years.

    The only underground bunkers I'm interested in are the reverb chambers below the Capitol Records building.

    I'll laugh a bit when December 21 comes and goes and nothing happens.

    I don't want to live down in a hole. I'll just sit upstairs with my guns and try to pick em off as they come down the street.

    Check out the movie "Blast From The Past" with Brendan Fraser, Christopher Walken, Sissy Spacek, Alicia Silverstone. They go into a bunker at the Cuban missile crisis, stay down there 35 years, and come out to a very changed LA. I thought is was very funny.

    How many guitars and cases of beer will an average shelter hold?

    I hate to shock you all, but actually I am the one who is going to bring the end of the world. :twisted:
    It won't be pleasant. I am planning on a week of homemade chili, breakfast, lunch and dinner, with heavy onions and beans. That's just the start.
    When you see the mushroom cloud over the midwest you will know it has begun.

    Nat King Cole's monument.

    Back to the OP:
    If it hits the fan... tornado.... earthquake... tsunami... warfare... you have to evacuate because of all the dead bodies that contaminate the water. Mobility is key. You bug out ASAP because you can't see tiny germs that can kill or maim you. Bandits and looters can have the disaster area and the infections all to themselves.

    Bunkers aren't mobile and germs are.
