Things to Do to Prepare for the End of the World

A lot of people are feeling that the End really is near. Why? Well, a lot of things are pointing toward something bad: the BP Gulf oil disaster, an increasingly powerful and intrusive government, strange and ominous weather patterns, and unusual prophecies such as the Mayan (and other) predictions about the end of the age in 2012.

No one can say for certain what will happen, when it will happen, why it will happen, or WHAT will happen...but it can't hurt to prepare. Here are some things you can do to at least feel more secure!
