I would not consider myself a prepper, necessarily, but I have a full freezer of meat we shoot and process ourselves, I have a full canning shelf of foods I process myself. I suppose, by watching those prepping shows, I don't have nearly enough...

We have a generator if power goes out and enough fuel for a few days and we use our own well for water. And then I have enough ammo and guns, swat gear, for a small army. Bring on the apocalypse.

Us too! Currently researching ways to store enough fuel for about 2 weeks. Hubby's into prepping but not like the weirdos on TV. More like practical items that are easy to keep that could get us through a couple weeks without power or trips to the grocery store. I'm reluctant but I suppose if the apocalypse crossed the Red River I'll be grateful!

I never thought too much about prepping as far as food goes but my wife is into that with her typical organizational flair. I'd always figured we'd bug out to the old family place which is large acreage on a lake. Good thing she's got the food/meds covered as we'd have been fishing from limb lines and likely eating armadillos, prickly pear and mesquite beans if it'd been left up to me.

Based on my hobby of shooting sports I can also do the whole small army thing.

Sorry to get stuck on this one, but wouldn't guys that change tires for a living really be in danger then? Or people that work in factories that make tires? It seems like a story designed to send soccer moms into a panic.

Better give her a nonzombie password. Zombie's cant say tongue twisters. Better have her say "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers! If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked!?!"


I don't really know if it will do any good but it will be hilarious!! laugh

All those who are big-time WWZ preppers, I just need your addresses, please. That way I can wait to do my shopping until after the event, and I won't need money. laugh

Really, the folks on TV who show the world how much they are prepared and exactly what they have and what their defense are - they are just the biggest morons. If you do that, you must do it secretly, or you're wasting your time. You're just hanging a "Hey, come get your free stuff here" sign on your front gate.

You also wouldn't want any friends to come over to your hideout to play monopoly, because you'd have to assume they were being followed by the ravenous horde. And mabye they'd remember the tongue twister password, but you'd also need to give them a full-body check for recent bite-marks. And let's please all agree not to be the jerk who lies and says he wasn't bitten, even though he really was and is slowly transforming into one.

I have always wondered how will the preppers have enough time to get into these bunkers?

Prepper is visiting grandma (or at the store stocking up on more prepper supplies) and finds out about N bomb blast incoming he has a few seconds. He should have spent the money when he was alive.

There is some seriously tricky double-talk there: “I think there are two different parts of that equation,” he continued. “The first is, if you’re a member of the traveling public and are healthy, should you be worried that you might have gotten it by sitting next to someone? And the answer is no." “Second, if you are sick and you may have Ebola, should you get on a bus? And the answer to that is also no. You might become ill, you might have a problem that exposes someone around you,” he said."

All that first part says to me is...
- The concepts of having Ebola and being "healthy" are mutually exclusive. So he's saying something basic and profound and trying to make it sound like advice: If you are healthy, you don't have it. Duh.
- If you are healthy, then you shouldn't be worried about whether you have it. If you had it, you wouldn't be healthy. So if you don't have it, you are hereby requested not to worry.

How about the cured doctor who is now healthy and traveling the country giving blood to the affected people. Should he not travel by plane since he was exposed? Now that he is carrying the Ebola antibodies is he technically Ebola an Ebola carrier?

Isn't he like someone who has had chickenpox? He can't get it or give it, but he has developed an amunity to it?

You cannot become a zombie by sitting next to a zombie on a bus, but zombies should not ride public transportation because they could zombiefy someone else. laugh
