Worst Case Scenario

Updated on July 10, 2015

Ever wonder what to do in the worst case scenario? Well you've come to the right place!

In Hollywood disaster films, you always see the extras screaming their heads off as they run for cover. Now when you watch this, doesn't it make you wonder why they didn't read the whole script? Anyway, with the world spinning out of control nowadays, don't you wish that life could just be a Hollywood film? In Hollywood films, you can always look at the script to see what happens next. "Oh, the Zombie is supposed to chase me around the block while I try to figure out where I parked my car."

Sadly, life isn't a Hollywood film (if it was, the budget would be astronomical) and we must do our best to survive when disaster strikes. Don't look so sad (or resort to panic attacks), just because life isn't scripted doesn't mean that you can't know what's going happen. To answer your next question, no, this lens does not help you predict the future. This lens, however, will give you some useful tips that will help you survive a zombie apocalypse, alien attacks, Nostradamus predictions, 2012 end of the world fiasco, ect... You know, the things that really matter in life. So sit back and relax, it's going to be a bumpy ride! You might want to call your agent and review your contract. What! You don't have an agent? Haven't you learned anything from the example above? (sigh) We have a lot of work to do!

What you should aways know

A good rule of thumb is to always make sure that you know what you're up against (or at least have an idea of what you're up gainst). Remember knowledge is power! For instance, if you know that aliens are coming to attack Earth, would you sit around and wait for them? No! You would go to your nearest pharmacy and get the best cold medicine.

Why cold medicine? Well, let's say the night you went out to the pharmacy was a bit chilly and you caught a common cold. Now, don't drink the cold medicine until after the invasion (evidently aliens hate colds). The fastest way to get rid of your cold and save the planet is to give it to your alien "friends." They'll die because they have no immunity to our germs and you'll be considered a hero! Then after saving the world, if you're still not feeling well, you can drink the cold medicine!

But if you're one of those people who don't have the faintest idea of what they are likely to face, then you are in worst shape than I thought! If this is the case keep reading below...

Be ready for the Worst Case Scenario

Five Steps that will help you

To survive follow these five simple steps:

Step 1: Don't Panic! Panicking is just a waste of valuable time that you could be running for dear life, negotiating your way out of the situation, signing your will, and or saving the planet.

Step 2: know what you're up against! If you hear that a virus has turned the entire human race into flesh eating zombies, don't just stand there! Run! Although, where you're running to will be another problem...this will be addressed in step 4.

Step 3: If you don't have the slightest idea of what you're going to face, skip step 2! Okay, instead of trying to anticipate what your enemy will do or what is going to happen, I suggest that you build an arsenal. An arsenal? Yes, grasshopper an arsenal. An arsenal of what, you ask? Of everything, I say! In the worst case scenario it is assumed that everything's gone haywire! Meaning that law and order is no longer there, and that chaos exists everywhere! Whether this situation is brought by an alien invasion, a zombie attack, a Biblical catastrophe, or a Mayan calendar, the point is chaos will engulf the world and you need to be ready. Since the law won't protect you, you need to protect yourself by building an arsenal (I'll let your imagination run wild here).

Step 4: make sure that you have a place where you can be safe! Whether it's on this planet or on the moon, you need a safe place to stay in the event of a catastrophe. Oh, make sure that it's not a place that can be accessed easily. This means don't use your barn, tool shed, or basement as a hideout.

Step 5: remember to enjoy the little things in life! Just because the world is ending doesn't mean that you have to let go of your box of Twinkies (and or doughnuts). When things go bad, we need a little reminder of how good life used to be. If you're going to go, you might as well go happy!

Good luck!

Now, these five steps should help you prepare for the situations that I mentioned above. Please note that these may not work for all types of situations and that you should consult a professional before taking any steps mentioned here. REMEMBER, these steps are meant to help those who live in an apocalyptic world, so they should NOT be used unless they are recommended by a professional or it is in fact the end of the world.

psst: If you love this lens then share it with the world (there's no sense in allowing mayhem to engulf the world...again)!

Don't Panic! Disasters happen all the time

      I recognized, that you listened to War Of The Worlds from H. G. Wells. In the worst case, we will become an artillery man, and save the world...However, I'd appreciate a little tour with the aliens, or only examine the newly developed and enhanced anti-gravitation engines...

      You need to add a link to "War of the Worlds". Isn't that where you got the idea about the colds? :) Along with my Twinkies, I'd like some chocolate doughnuts, please.
