How the HELL do we not have a thread on this fantastic show yet? As a friend of mine put it; think hoarders with guns/MRE's/canned foods.

I think we should extend Kirks sandbox to this thread as well.

I tried watching a bit of it last nite during commercials. The DVR was already recording shit and there was other stuff to watch. I'll have to download it today and watch it the whole thing. The guy in Texas with the house made of shipping containers was insane.

I used to be obsessed with the doomsday survival stuff. I'd lie awake at night plotting and planning my survival strategy. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the only people who were going to survive with me were going to be a bunch of crazy ass rednecks. And who wants to live in a world filled with crazy ass rednecks? When/if shit falls apart, I'll just eat a bullet thankyouverymuch.

Haven't you seen Justified, moonshine, premium weed, and pain killers doesn't sound all that bad of a way of life after the Apocalypse.

I know a couple of nutjobs that are into this sort of nonsense. When the world falls apart, I'm gonna take 'em out and ride out the end of days in their cozy little bunker. Or they'll get off a lucky shot and take me out. Win-win for me.

Until the last bit of electricity runs out and internet porn as we know it goes away.

Time to start hoarding skin mags - the currency of the apocalypse.

It's one thing to be preparing for it, but it's another thing to be praying for it. The kooks on that show are absolutely praying for it.

There was this chick from Houston who's whole plan when shit hits the fan (oil crisis I think) was to bug out from Houston to...wait for it...wait for it...MEXICO. Yes, you read that right...Mexico.

I watched it last night. I loved the fat chick (who supposedly works out everyday in preparation for this) taking about having to whore herself out to barter for food and supplies.

The "bug out" people are delusional. Unless you've got a hidey hole somewhere pretty damn close by, you probably aren't going to make it very far. The "road warriors" are even more doomed.The people who think they're going to arm themselves to the teeth and just set out on the road with no specific destination or plan in mind... doomed. They'll just run into all of the other road warriors and they'll all end up killing each other off.

The "mole people" are the ones who have the best chance. The people who have a nice stocked hidey hole right close that they can just crawl into, pull the hatch shut, and hunker down... they just might make it.

Oh yeah... that pig is praying for it. She reckons she'll finally get some dick. She can barter her food in exchange for dick.

Was this the same show that had the tranny couple prepping for zombies? That show was horrible.

The off the grid hippies like Les Stroud (Survivor Man) have the best chance.

I don't want to live in a world without internet porn... I just don't. I remember back when there was no internet porn, and there's no way I'm going back to those dark ages... that shit was bleak.

Yeah... a guy with a television show on a major network is "off the grid". :icon_roll

Him and Jesse Ventura too.

I think she admitted how stupid that plan was at the end of the show because of all the drug violence. She's fucked anyway because she lives in Houston. That city would meltdown after just another good hurricane.

It's the land of the Conchords and the Hobbits. Of course you'd want to live there.

I have this show on the DVR. I love this type of shit. I do stockpile some supplies at my house, but that's just because earthquakes and floods have cut me off from everywhere else in the past. If the race wars or any other type of violent apocalypse happened, it would take a while to get to my area so I'd be pretty safe. If people are actually planning on living through an apocalyptic meteor or super-volcano, they should probably just kill themselves now.

I was just up in Washington and they had some bad snow and freeze that caused a lot of broken trees which caused a power outage for a week.

the one guy I talked to had absolutely no preparedness at all and he had to go bum water off of people to flush his terlets and go find food after the county plowed his road

he should have been better prepared for this

the same area has massive floods right after new orleans had theirs and he should have learned from that

I have some food and some water since I live in an earthquake area

and plenty of weapons and ammo to protect the place

I don't have the cable to watch this, but there are a couple guys that I follow on Youtube that are on shows like that.

Survival Doc being one that ends up on those shows, and posts his television try-outs on his channel. I think his channel is called thenewsurvivalist.

Another interesting one is a channel called sustenancencover.

I've said it before on this very board. If you do not have at a minimum of a one week supply of food and water for each and every member of your household, you are wrong.

So let me ask you this. Would you want to live in a world with no internet porn or in world where there is internet porn. But you can only access it with a dial-up modem.

I just watched the pilot (I assume) that had the girl from Houston and the LA earthquake dude. The stupidity is hilarious.

The dude in L.A. planned on dealing with a massive earthquake by walking around the "creek" and eating weeds, and the girl from Houston was just a moron. Her 2.5 pull-ups are really going to get her in phenomenal shape. Also, when it was pointed out that her car can make it 300 miles on one tank and Mexico is at least 320 miles, she answered (in an oil shortage-caused apocalypse) that she could probably find gas along the way somewhere.

The first family was at least all-in with their preparedness.
