How To Survive Judgement Day


Do you want to know how to survive judgement day? Well folks you got it – this is the One Stop Shop on how to survive Armageddon! Want to know the best hints and tips on surviving the Apocalypse?

Need to know what to do (and when to do it) when the Four Horsemen storm into view? Unsure as to how to handle the End Of Things As You Know It? Not sure how to duck and cover correctly?

Then read on, because all you ever needed to know is somewhere else, and all you'll find here is light relief from impending doom. And gloom. And an awful lot of chaos and confusion. And other unforeseen events.


Horse Riders

They just clog up the byways and leave horse shit everywhere ...

Don’t Panic!

Seriously … panic is a waste of time. Panic won’t hold Doomsday at bay. Panic won’t organise your insignificant efforts to avoid theInevitable.

And panic is simply no good when it comes to putting your affairs in order prior to Judgement Day. All panic is good for is fear, dread and a loss of control.

And it’s absolutely no use when it comes to remembering to pack your underwear.

Having Fun With The Grim Reaper

Got Grim Reaper?

Got trouble.   Have them cards handy ... top tip!
Got trouble. Have them cards handy ... top tip!

In Control

Ok. Your nerves are frayed. The End Is Nigh. Now what?

First you need to pack. You never know what you’re going to need at the Worlds’ End. Don’t get caught short people. Pack for every eventuality. My advice is ‘when in doubt – pack for inclement weather’. Follow that – you’ll not go far wrong.

A few essentials:

  • Beach wear – you never know
  • Macintosh – I’d imagine apocalypses bring a lot of rain
  • Wellies – there’s probably gonna be mud
  • Several changes of underwear – cataclysmic events cause tummy upsets
  • Several plastic bags – always great for carrying rubbish back to your hole in the ground – apocalypse or not … litter is still litter
  • Several toilet rolls. There’s not going to be many leaves lying around. And trust me … loo roll will be gold in the Aftermath
  • Tooth picks – great for tiny fires that won’t rage out of control
  • One domestic pet. Great company in times of mass destruction. Stick with a dog. Cats have a tendency towards cowardice.
  • Hand cream. There’s simply no excuse for having hands like a navvy
  • Aromatherapy candles. Great when the going gets apocalyptic
  • One pillow. Rubble pillows are uncomfortable and cause headaches
  • A name tag. In case you lose your memory. And don’t write anything silly like ‘Elvis Presley’ or 'I'm With Stupid’. It won’t help
  • Strong boots. Slings backs and stilettos result in corns. And I should imagine mass destruction involves a lack of chemists and corn cream
  • False teeth. You may lose yours in the panic. Flying rocks etc tend to remove teeth
  • A compass. However hard the Four Horsemen think they are, they still aren’t going to knock the polar north out of kilter. They may be destructive little buggers – but they’re not that powerful
  • One pack of cards. If the Grim Reaper decides to come for you personally, whip them out and barter for mercy with a game of Go Fish. He’s a sucker for matching pairs

Ok I think that covers essential items. Now - how's about surviving the Big Bang?

Hiding

Nope. This isn't hiding. It's 'Peek-a-boo!' ...
Nope. This isn't hiding. It's 'Peek-a-boo!' ...

Random Unrelated Monty Python - Spam

Survival Training

Light a fire - and earn points too!
Light a fire - and earn points too!

Now What?

Hide.

You have to be serious about this bit – it’s important. You are not playing hide and seek. You are just … hiding. No one is counting to 50. No one is going to come and find you. Well – they are. Because you’re supposed to expire. However if someone – or something - does find you, ignore them. Pretend you can't see them. They’re not going to shout out ‘Got ya – now your IT’. They’re more likely to do something horribly painful. Ignorance is the key if you’re caught. It probably won't save you but nothing ventured nothing gained.

Let’s face it – hiding is almost the best advice I can give you. Because if you go for a stroll in the middle of all out Pandemonium you are your own worst enemy. Excluding the Grim Reaper. Or one of the Four Horsemen. Not to mention a moving target.

And it doesn't really matter where you hide as long as you factor in that it's only classed as hiding if no one can see you. It's no good hiding in a drawer. You won't fit. Or in a cardboard box if you do. Because cardboard is just reinforced paper. And hardly like to hold back the Wrath Of Whomever.

Pick something solid, like an old tank. If there's a lack of tanks down your street then you're out of luck. Generally anything cabable of withstanding the worse thing you can imagine should do it. When you've found your hidey hole ... hope. For the best. And pray. Not because it's likely to be physically helpful. Merely because it's comforting and distracting. Trying to remember the Lords' Prayer is enough to furrow many a brow. And try not to say it out loud.

You're hiding remember.

So You've Survived.

Great! It's likely that you're now destined to a lonley, miserable existence but hey! You've got a suitcase full of toilet roll. Replacement teeth. And a dog. Now it's down to you. You have your essential items. You've probably got about as much chance of surviving the first few hours as say a gazelle caught in the jaws of a hungry lion - but the main thing is ... at least you tried.

Jolly good - and good luck!

Makes as much sense as the packing I did for the last hurricane evacuation -- took a tent and an evening dress. Two of my friends brought an iron each. It's amazing what you pack if you haven't planned ahead. In future, I'm just going to hitch the camper up to a truck and take the whole shebang.

And plenty of loo roll.

P.S. thanks for the gratuitous Monty Python.

Would twinkies survive the hollocost? I think they would be worth a try, they survive everything else. I've made my list, I'm ready to survive. I'll send up a smoke signal (in code) and you can come find me!

I'm thinking of bringing new and exciting things. Things I've always wanted to have but never would. You know, like, I'd perhaps design a whole new me and pack accordingly. In case I don't like the whole new me, I'll bring old me stuff.

I'm assuming looting is okay, so I'll have to do some of that in preparation. Casual looting, mind you, not the freaked out kind of looting.

I'm thinking Teresa was on the right track with the evening gown. Heels of course. And a deck or two of cards is definitely a good idea. Solitaire and of course bridge for those times you're feeling wild and off kilter.

By the way, loved the spam video. I'll have to bring along my Fawlty Towers, Keeping up Appearances, Monty Pythons, Poirots, Midsomer Murders, and the like with me as well. I'm sure I'm forgetting something. I'd better get on with my list and looting. See you later. And thanks!

Teresa - :) I think it makes for great non-sense! For sure ... there's nothing any of us can do when the Bells of Doom start clanging! What would you do with a three minute warning? Or maybe it's five if it's the Four Horsemen.

Let's face it, horses can be lazy buggers and would sometimes prefer to amble rather than gallop over the horizon ...

Haunty - hey :) I have no idea what google thinks when it crawls these hubs ... today all I can see are adverts relating to tracing your loved ones. Maybe that's in fact quite apt after the dust has settled?!

Janetta - :) See ... hiding is a fine art. It's all about not being seen. Having bits of your body on view does not constitute hiding.

That's just being half-assed. And ruins the point. The Grim Reaper is probably a miserable sod and would no doubt be just as wretched whether you're hard to find or not. Why make it easy on him?

Make him work is what I say ...

Paper - pack what ever you feel is appropriate. Me ... I'm also packing some party blowers. Cos if I survive the Apocclypse I'm gonna be celebrating ...

AE - some things are better left to mystery. Womes hygiene rituals, wasps and the End of The World ;)

Jewels - you may. However ... as things may get a little rough I can't guarantee the rest of my body will still be attached in the aftermath.

You may wish to consider that disgusting little fact ...


frogdropping profile image

frogdropping 7 years ago Author

RooBee - I'm not entirely sure what the Four Horsemen are capable of. But then again ... neither are they. It's not as if they get out much is it? :)

Logic - you can certainly do that. However I'd advise you try and develop a tactic to unhorse them first. I can imagine that their horses are pretty big.

By my estimation that probably puts the Four Asses at a height of at least six feet above the ground ...

Feline - you may take whatever makes you feel more ... comfortable. Wrap your books in tinfoil first though. Probably better if they remain uncharred from Fire and Brimstone :)

The Good - thankyou very much :)

Candie - I'm not sure if Twinkies will survive the Holocaust. I'd imagine such items will be a little melty ... and yes. You may light a fire.

Whether I'm alive and able to respond to it is another thing entirely ...

frogdropping 7 years ago Author

Cindy - lol thankyou. I hope you can take some courage from the fact that we're all equally FOOBAR-ed :)

Candie - I love MP!

Tom - I think anything that is wind-up would be great. Like Yo-Yo's. We will need to find alternatives to the internet.

Personally ... if I survive I'm going to wait for the Grim Reaper to appear and wind him up with a game of Go Fish :)

Ethel - a gun? Hmmmmm lol ... I don't know. Seems a bit like making it too easy for the Four Horsemen et al. I'd prefer to run away from them.

Shooting myself makes for an easy days' work. And as it's the only day they'll ever work ... then let them. That's what I say anyway ;)

Cris - hey hey :) lol I'm with you. There's enough white sand out there. Surely some of it will survive?

Or maybe it will become an Endangered Sand?

Hi, Frog :D! I mean google seems to have a sense of humor after all. An add about anxiety attacks when Gehenna is upon us... and the latest technology to trace people when they are trying to hide from those riders. :)

Frieda - and why not re-invent yourself! Maybe it will be helpful when one of the Four Horsemen catches up with you, looks down his Soon To Be Souls list then says "FRIEDA BABBLEY?" and you reply ... "Sorry? Frieda who?" ;)

Oh and yes ... Pack some Monty Python. I can imagine we'll need some comic relief ...

Ralwus - lol I«m ass backwards here! So many have commented and I was last online on Friday!

No good hiding with the Turtles. You'll care when you have skin like a prune from hiding underwater ;)

J-Mae - lol you're welcome ;)

frogdropping profile image

frogdropping 7 years ago Author

ralwus - I'd imagine that the Grim Reaper doesn't let things like physical discomfort bother him overmuch - or drowning come to think about it. He's a tad skinny and probably ever so slightly see through. Not just underfed and pale but also something along the lines of 'vague' ... most likely to do with the fact that he's non-living.

Probably ;)

fortune - I don't know if paint guns will help. More likely is the fact that you'll tick the Grim Repaer off. Unless you just shoot him with black. He probs wouldn't notice his robes were splattered with black.

All being well ...

Iphi - no of course not. But there's probably going to be no need for coffee either. Though I like the fact that you're a positive thinker. And there's nothing wrong with positive thinking when the Apocalyptic Riders charge into view.

Though I think you'd have a better chance if you were a great long distance runner that's fast off the block ...

OMG I laughed so hard reading this i just about fell off my chair. There are a couple of things I think you should consider adding to your list of must haves. First, tequila, limes and salt because if all else fails, you should be able to get smashed so you don't care. Second, twinkies and or ding dongs, cause it's a proven scientific fact that they will last forever. And last but not least, a lifetime supply of Spam, that tasty and versital little food item. Don't know of anyone who actually eats Spam, but maybe if you cornered the market and started buying it all up in anticipation of The End, you might cause a whole new public awareness of Spam and who knows where that might lead! Can't wait to read your hub about Zombies. Well, must leave ya now ( the dark side is calling and i must answer... I must answer...mu s t answr )

so sorry about the spam thing. i'll beat myself up later. torches are good unless its raining. and they're not good for much if you run into dragons. personally i like dragons, some of them can be trained to eat mean and nasty people who aren't very nice to you. i'm working on a recipe for dragon treats since i think they'll be one of the few species left.

love my - lol I'm hoping there'll be no Dragons left. Would be a bugger if there was. We'd be stuck playing Scrabble and listening to tall stories. Instead of trying to fight for survival ...

Interesting article. Maybe some good colas, whatever is left in the ice trays, the remaing bread and food in the refrigerator, and some of your suggestions until the moment of doom arrives, hopefully a painless one. God Bless You.
