    what would you do?

    There are rumours that the world would be ending in 2012(which I believe is a load of ...) but if it were, what would you do?

      I would book a flight on the Space Shuttle or that Richard Branson contraption. Hey! I could live on the Moon :-) No place like home

      But if there wasn't time I would just go for an improvised hi-jack operation

          I'll keep you a seat Castlepaloma, by the window and you can watch Armageddon for no extra charge. LOL

      Why would it be any different to what you are doing now? Your world could end in the next instant. Never mind about 2012.

        If you had, a chance to survive another day, wouldn’t you go the moon, too?

          Haha of course. Not because I am worried about living another day. Because I don't worry.  Just because I would love to go to see the moon. However in saying that. Being there and seeing it from here might be two very different experiences. The actual experience might eliminate my current view of the moon as being mystical and magically beautiful.  I like having that view.

    This question is not much different to knowing you're going to die tomorrow, etc.

    I would do the same as I do today, but maybe with a little more passion!

    BTW, the whorl IS going to end. I just can't tell you the date! lol It's a secret!! cool

    aka-dj is absolutely correct.


      Civilization as we know it will soon be going through some drastic changes.
       When hurricane Katrina came through here a few years ago,   I was on the other side of Houston and there were 100s of 1000s of people stranded along every inter-state, state and county road.
       Stores sold out of Gasoline and all food stuffs.

      I stayed home with a small stash of gasoline to run a generator,   and a few weeks worth of food.
      I said at the time that this was but a prelude of things to come.   
       There is nothing that we can do to prepare for a long term situation such as that.   If you are prepared, you will have to defend it! Which is something that we would have to give a LOT of thought to.

      You're only talking about City life here... People who think Milk comes out of a plastic bottle and eggs from a carton.

      Don't worry about it, 90% of those under 20 will be dead within 24 hours of being without, My Space, Twitter and Facebook their mobile phones and computers.

      The Obese won't be too far behind as soon as they have consumed the last of the junk food, their cars out of fuel and they will have to walk instead...

      As soon as the shops are looted out then what ?   Junkies, and everyone dependent upon pills to get them going or slow them down or need a councillor to tell them which way is up or what to do next won’t last much longer.

      Many will sit around praying while others will moan and groan that the Government or somebody else should do something....

      While the rest of life will go on, those who can fish and hunt and start a fire without a gallon of gasoline will survive, if they’re smart they will get as far away from, what we laughingly call, civilization as is possible sit back and wait.

      The planet will survive and adapt it has don’t it before and for sure it will do it again.  If a disaster is coming it will be manmade and he will have only himself to blame, but he is too stupid and too arrogant to see the signs...... So Be It !   Not all will perish and hopefully those who do will learn to live with nature and not to think it is ours to do with as we wish.

        I dunno, Merlin. Fat people might survive longer because they have all that body fuel stored. Otherwise, I agree with you. I figure we could live off the squirrels in our back yard for a few weeks.

          They might survive but I doubt they'll be mobile...!

          Sounds like you and me will last a bit longer though !

          Squirrels ?  What do they taste like ...? Mind you they come oven ready with Nut stuffing...

            You've never eaten squirrel? It's not my fave, but my oldest daughter loves it. I prefer rabbit. Or deer. Or my favorite, quail! Yum!

            BTW, I got hubby a .308 rifle for Christmas. As we speak, he's cleaning my Remington Wingmaster shotgun. lol

              That is a start,  Stock up on Gun and amo.  You will need them to keep them city folks outa your creek.  and  away from  your squirrels.

                 I remember what it was like being a part of the country folk community, 15 miles back from the closest black top road.
              They didn't take much to outsiders coming way back up in the woods.

                But, Back in the city; I'm sure there will  be a lot of folks breaking into the gun shops and eventually they leave the city, and start foraging in the woods.
                 Going to be a free-for-all , that’s for sue.
              The onslaught will be mighty.
              I might step out in front of a truck and get it over with.  Just joking ….  I hope?

    On a personal level it would seem the same as learning you have a terminal illness, though if everyone knows, you may find life affected by panic, looting, general chaos, in which case retreating to somewhere secluded and easily protected might be advisable

    1. Jerami profile image77
      Jeramiposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      The thing that I see being the hardest would be protecting myself and those with me; and our provisions.

         In order to survive, our primal instincts will have to be fully awakened. And I am not sure that I would want to do that?

        I've thought about that, too, Jerami. What kind of life would that be?

          Morning  habee

            I've given this a lot of thought over the past decade, and have concluded that I want to be a early casuality.

          If a meteor hits the eath, I want it be sitting in the bulls eye., HA!

    Any who understand this term

    would know in trying times is when the children of God will shine like no other times.

    This is when you would see the "greater works" that was spoken bu the Christ...

    I am gleefully looking forward to It.
